Overview

Why We Love This

Keep your horse’s back supple and loose with the SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Ceramic Dressage Saddle Pad. Ceramic particles in the pad’s ThermoBalance® underside 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 not only provides ventilation, but style, too. Hints of metallic thread in the top layer's quilted fabric add subtle shine, giving the pad a luxe look. In addition to the therapeutic benefits of cFIR technology, the pad’s curving anatomical shape mimics your horse’s topline for further comfort and freer movement under saddle.

Also available in AP and Western 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

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 Dressage Saddle Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I bought one of these during the Black Friday event to see how it compared to my BOT pads. Very different in a good way. Super flexible and light. Better contour to my horse's back. I can't speak to the warm it might add by my horse seems happy. I've only owned and used it for about a week so I can't speak to the longevity. Very pretty design. I would love to see more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely saddle pad I recently bought this saddle pad, hoping that it would help my horse loosen up her back and be more comfortable because of the ceramic inserts. It is a beautifully made, sturdy pad, and I love the colors(would be nice if it came in a greater range of colors). I haven't used it enough to be able to see a difference in how she warms up or moves, but it seems to be a good pad regardless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle pad I bought a black one early spring and love it so much decided to buy a navy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size and fit. Love the fit on my horse and washes great. Purchased the white pad. Love the black piping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this pad! I tried this on my horse and he is sooo much happier I bought a second one. It looks great, washes great and is well padded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my horse much cooler Living in a very warm area, keeping my horse cool while riding is almost impossible. I have noticed that sweating under the saddle pad has decreased (the heat has not).
Date published: 2021-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light pad My sensitive mare really likes this pad and so do I. Right away I noticed that this pad is lighter than some of the other therapeutic pads meaning that I can use it in the southern US summer heat. It is barely large enough for my dressage saddle but it works. So far it is holding up well. I would love to see it in some other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes all the difference for a sensitive back I have used two of these pads in black exclusively since June of 2020, having used each approximately 100 times a piece and washing them several times. The ceramic tech has made all the difference in my horse's warmup time and overall back comfort! Only now in the last couple of weeks have I had the piping just behind the girth keeper begin to fray, which does make me wish there was some sort of alternate material where the leg and girth naturally rub. Otherwise these pads are beautiful, effective, and definitely durable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pads My horse and I love them so much I have one in each color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dressage pad! I wasn’t looking for a particular type of pad, just a nice one when I found this one. After reading the reviews I decided to try it. I would not have truly believed the difference in my horse’s movement and willingness if I hadn’t seen (ridden) it for myself! She was much more fluid and forward and generally happier! Bravo Smartpak! I am going to order one for my jump saddle as well! ( please make in an eggplant colour!)
