What makes the SQUISH Pad amazing?
- Product Reviews
Built on the same foundation as the PLUSH Pad™, the SQUISH Pad™ comes with an adjustable spine channel and optional wither freedom. However, the SQUISH Pad™ takes performance and comfort to an even higher level with gel-foam impact dampening panels built into the pad.
After you've dialed in your SQUISH Pad™ to match your horse's topline and barrel shape, you'll place your saddle on top of the industry-first saddle dampening system. This allows you to feel your horse, while protecting your horse's back from the shifting, bouncing or impinging of the saddle.
Does your back get tight or sore after rides? The SQUISH Pad™ can help.
Does your saddle slide or shift during your ride? The SQUISH Pad™ can help.
Does your saddle fit perfectly? The SQUISH Pad™ will still bring a softer contact over the surface of the saddle.
The SQUISH Pad™ is one of those pieces of tack you have to test to understand how profound of a difference it makes. The feeling is so distinct, you will notice it in the first minute. And if you don't feel the difference is worth it, you're welcome to return it for a full refund within 90 days :)
It uses a unique construction style that allows for all of these amazing features, while keeping it as traditional looking as possible. The underside that touches the horse is made from 1/2" 100% wool felt, with a radius cut along the front to contour around the horse's shoulder. The top of the pad is made of two layers of laminated marine-grade carpet. This gives a soft-to-the-touch feel, while creating a resilient sweat/sun resistant structure to hold the gel-foam panels.
If you need extra saddle fit help, the SQUISH Pad™ also has an available fitting shim kit. The shim kit is sold separately (scroll to the bottom of this page to add it to your cart).
