With the well-being and performance of our horses in mind, we looked at the available gel pad products on the market and thought we could do better! We discovered Akton® Polymer as our raw material; a renowned viscoelastic polymer that has been rigorously tested worldwide in 40 years of human grade, peer reviewed, research. It is universally trusted in human clinical and sporting settings for its superior pressure relieving, impact and sheer force reducing qualities.

Every horse deserves to be a VIP!

The very important pad is unique:

* Superior textured structure gives high tensile strength, the key to maintaining shape under extreme and prolonged compression

* Soft, flexible and seamless with no pressure causing trims

* Moulds to your horses back like a low profile second skin

* A thin film gullet eliminates pressure on the horse’s spine

* Only 8mm thick so does not alter your saddle fit

* Bobbles increase surface area, alleviating pressure points and evenly distributing weight

* Non-sticky, does not cause friction or pluck hair when removed

* Made from Akton® Polymer, a renowned viscoelastic polymer

* Rigorously tested worldwide in 40 years of scientific research

* Universally trusted in human clinical and sporting settings for its superior pressure relieving, impact and sheer force reducing qualities

* Draws and disperses heat from the horses back, regulating temperature

* Hypoallergenic, easily cleanable and does not support bacterial growth

We have 5 colours of the VIP Original LARGE;

Black, Blue, Gold, Coffee Brown and Warm White.

The only difference between them is the colour, not the properties.

VIP Original LARGE fits most shapes of saddle up to 18” including side saddles and some Western saddles.

PONY and MEDIUM sizes are available in Black or Coffee Brown.

The VIP Original PONY & MEDIUM sizes are a scaled down version of VIP Original.

PONY fits up to 13.2hh or 138cm height horse, with a spine length of 17.5” or 44cm

MEDIUM fits up to 15hh or 153cm height horse, and up to a 16.5" saddle. The spine length is 20.4” or 51.5cm

The black VIP is popular for dressage, especially for those with black tack. When used in conjunction with a white saddle cloth, the black pad is a fantastically subtle choice.

Go for gold with our most versatile VIP colour. The gold is slightly translucent and subtly adopts the colour tones of the saddle cloth underneath it. This makes it an excellent choice for brown saddles and either dark or light saddle cloths.

The brand new coffee brown VIP is perfect for a classic look under a brown saddle.

Actual colour may vary - Although we have tried our best to make these images true to colour, colour display may vary between devices.
