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

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 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
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!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Liner I purchased this in place of the Back on Track western saddle liner that they sold at one time. And it has worked just as good as the Back on Track one. Great product for the price.
