We use Akton® Polymer as the raw material for the VIP saddle pad. This renowned viscoelastic polymer has been rigorously tested worldwide over the past 40 years.
The material is trusted in human clinical and sporting settings. It has superior pressure relieving, impact and sheer force reducing qualities.
Independent research has proved its unique qualities.
Moulding to your horses back like a low profile second skin, the VIP is very soft and flexible to the touch. The durable honeycomb structure of Akton gel guarantees huge tensile strength allowing the pad to always maintain its shape under extreme and prolonged compression.
So unlike foam and softer gel pads, the VIP can deflect an applied load without bottoming out.
The bobble design and thin film gullet, spreads direct forces over a wider surface area. This alleviates pressure points and evenly distributes weight.
The thinness (8mm) of the pad does not compromise the optimum close contact feel. The pad has no air holes which can fill with sweat and hair, so there is reduced friction. Akton gel is hypoallergenic, easily cleanable and does not support bacterial growth.
The VIP can be used either directly on your pony’s back, or underneath the saddle on top of the saddle pad or numnah.
Always use the VIP bobble side down for maximum benefit.
