The Toklat Matrix T3 Ortho Impact Shim Barrel Pad protects your horse with the impact technology of Poron XRD and the cushioning of memory foam. The T3 Matrix is a therapeutic Shim Pad with impact protection inserts and adjustment shims. The Ortho inserts, which include Poron XRD, cushion and absorb up to 90% of the energy transferred between horse and rider. Your horse moves freely and comfortably. You will have a more secure seat with less bouncing in the saddle and reduced stress on your back and joints. It's the perfect pad for barrel racing!
Ortho Impact inserts are a two layer insert featuring an ultra-light, contouring layer of high density, shock absorbing Poron XRD. The other layer is 13 mm of cushioning medium density viscoelastic foam. This is a great performance insert that can also help compensate for saddle fit and asymmetrical muscle development. Ortho-Impact protects the horse while minimizing the shock felt by the rider, offering back relief and a more secure seat. Great choice for horses that are working on muscle development or older horses that have lost muscle and need cushioning.
The lightweight, breathable barrel pad has an orthopedic grade felt lining that resists compression and distributes weight evenly.The channel quilted top is a tough military-grade non-slip material. Black wear leathers give you long-lasting performance. The shims allow saddle fit adjustment and compensation for imbalances. The pad comes with three full length pockets on both sides of the spine. Each pocket has two 1/4 inch felt shims for a total of 12 shims. Open the velcro closure along the spine of the pad to add or remove shims as needed. Converts from a built up to a bridge pad making it useful for multiple horses.
