Overview

Why We Love This

Keep your horses back supple and loose with the SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Ceramic Western Saddle Pad. ThermoBalance® material on the underside of the pad has ceramic particles that reflect body heat back as soothing far infrared rays, making it ideal for cold-backed or hard-working horses. These rays penetrate beneath the skin to activate blood flow, which may help decrease inflammation. The exterior mesh layer and contoured, anatomical shape provide ventilation for added comfort. The pad is even sharper-looking with grey piping and hints of metallic thread in the top layer's quilted fabric. Can be used on its own or as an inconspicuous liner underneath your usual pad.

Also available in AP and Dressage cuts!
 
Ceramic far infrared radiation (cFIR) technology:
  • Increases blood flow, promoting body’s natural healing process
  • May help decrease inflammation
  • Improves recovery
  • Protects from oxidative stress
Imported

Favorite Features

  • Ideal for cold-backed, stiff, or performance horses

  • ThermoBalance® fabric targets and soothes back muscles

  • Can be used by itself or as a liner

Instructions
Instructions for Use:
Washing Instructions:
• Machine wash in cold to warm water
• Use mild detergent
• Hang to dry
• Do not use bleach or fabric softener
• Do not put in dryer

Instructions for first use:
• Because different horses take different lengths of time to get used to ceramic technology, introduce your horse to SmartTherapy™ ThermoBalance™ slowly
• Start with 1 to 3 hours per day for the first few days and observe your horse’s response
• After 4 or 5 days, if your horse seems acclimated, you may gradually increase the number of hours the product is worn each day if desired
• If your horse is accustomed to wearing gear unsupervised and it will be safe for them to do so, consider having your horse wear the product overnight to maximize SmartTherapy’s benefits

SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Ceramic Western Saddle Pad is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect liner, just as advertised! This is exactly what I needed for my sensitive horse! It's a great buffer between his back and wool saddle pad. I'm shocked at some of these reviews because it's sad that some people think it's a saddle pad.... it is a LINER!! 🤦‍♀️

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading description I was excited to find a pad fof my short back horse that was the thickness I wanted. The measurement given was misleading however. The 26 inches in the description was really 31 inches fotthe total length ofthe pad. There was no mention that the pad was cut back when they gave the spine measurement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size and offers gentle warmth during riding Love this pad as a liner under a Smart Pak Honeycomb Memory Foam western work pad. My mare is still young and in training, so I never thought of her as "cold backed," but she did hump up from time to time when asked to canter. I wrote it off as getting the baby kinks out, but she hasn't done it since I switched to lining her memory foam pad with this pad. Coincidence? Possibly. But I do appreciate this pad's size and the cut out on the withers, helping to ensure it fits well under my other pad, and its gentle warming function. My mare is a Gypsy cross and prone to "feeling the heat" so to speak, but when I put my hand between this pad and her back, it felt pleasantly warm but not overly hot. I have washed this once and was happy to see it came out looking clean and nice. Other Smart Pak pads I have used have pilled up badly with one wash, but this still looks new! Hope it holds up over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Much thinner than I expected This pad is much thinner than I expected. I'm going to try using it as a liner with my show pads. Definitely will not be using day to day. I know it says 1/2" thick but doesn't seem that thick.
Date published: 2023-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect thickness This is exactly what I needed for my new schleese western saddle. Love the cut out for my ottb. It's is the perfect thickness. Please make more fun colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from just not BOT the pad is ok for the price, but doesn't seem to have the same quality (density) of BOT products ... also a bit short in the drop of the saddle pad
Date published: 2021-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cold back gelding warms up so much quicker! My Appendix Quarter Horse gelding is cold backed. To keep him from being antsy for the first few minutes of the ride, I lunge him for about 5 minutes. This helps greatly, but we still have about 10 minutes on the trail before he "chills out". With this pad, his back gets warmer quicker and stays that way. We still do our 5 minutes of lunging, but then he's cool as a cucumber for the whole ride. And seems happier, so I assume more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great technology but thin Wanted to love this but concerned it’s a little thin to use on its own! Will be layering under other western pad!
Date published: 2020-10-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Pad, wish it was slightly thicker I wish this pad was just a bit thicker (or held its thickness with a saddle on), but I am still comfortable using it on its own. I was not able to use a BOT western pad on its own, so plus for this product!
Date published: 2020-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GReat pad I love this pad and only wish I had bought it sooner. Although it's not thick it provides padding protection. With my saddle on it I can feel my mare so much better almost like riding bareback. Its super easy to clean and I give it 5 stars.
