We love the Acavallo Memory Foam Half Pad Front Riser for the way body heat from your horse allows the pad to contour to the horses back to avoid rubbing and distribute pressure evenly, all while absorbing shock for a more secure, comfortable ride for both horse and rider.
The Acavallo memory foam half saddle pad is a product that is hypoallergenic, breathable and heat sensitive making it suitable for nearly all horses. Offering support in all the right places, the pad eases muscle tension that can build up under the saddle. The anatomic shape assists in the correct positioning of the saddle and relieving tension that can move directly from the rider through the saddle onto the horses back. These memory foam pads also help to avoid rubbing and friction.
Memory Foam (an open-cell variety of flexible polyurethane foam) was first commercialized during the mid-60’s as a result of NASA’s AMES Research Center to improve the safety of aircraft cushions. This material is characterized by slow recovery after compression. Its ability to closely contour to shapes allows surface pressure to be distributed over a wide area. Other characteristics include its ability to dampen vibration as well as absorb shocks. This product also reacts to body temperature, softening and adjusts more easily to body contours. The pad can be machine washed (30 degrees) or by hand in a bucket of water with little detergent. Remove hairs from the pad with a brash before to wash it, Do not tumble dry. Do not expose to direct heat or strong sunlight, allow to dry naturally
