Matrix Ergonomic Coolback All Purpose Half Pad

In stock

Proposition 65 Warning for California Residents (click for more info)

The Matrix T3 Ergonomic All Purpose Half Pad has been designed with a longer front to more completely cushion the horse's shoulders encouraging freer movement.

Matrix half pads allow you design a pad customized to your horse's needs using special inserts that provide not only orthopedic and therapeutic protection but also contribute to overall performance. Each pad has pockets for special matrix inserts which allow you to select the cushioning you need whether it be a high impact cushion to reduce concussion or a low impact cushion to reduce pressure.

The Matrix T3 pad can be used on its own or with your choice of therapeutic inserts. These Inserts can be purchased separately and can be changed quickly and easily so you can use your Matrix pad on a variety of horses.

Features of the Matrix Pads include:

  • Linear quilt of fabric
  • Breathable/wickable batting and polycotton twill bottom
  • Stain resistant and easy to clean
  • Ergonomic designs are specially contoured to provide support and protection for critical muscle groups without interfering with movement
  • Coolback synthetic fleece lining is a medical grade fleece that reduces pressure points and allows for exceptional airflow
  • Pocket for insert closes along the spine

    Matrix Inserts are available in different types of foam to provide protection and added comfort. Choose the style that works best for your situation. Here are the three standard insert styles:

  • Pro-Impact Insert is made of ultra thin Poron XRD material that absorbs 90% of impact and can reduce rider bounce back
  • Lo-Impact Insert is made with 25mm of viscoelastic memory foam to cushion the horses back while allowing for complete muscle expansion
  • Ortho-Impact Insert combines high impact absorbing Poron XRD with 12mm of viscoelastic memory foam and is beneficial for stabilizing the saddle and compensating for conformation issues. It is especially good for riders who need back support.
