The Back on Track Mathilda AP Saddle Pad is made with state-of-the-art Welltex fabric containing polyester thread embedded with a fine ceramic powder. Designed to reflect the horse's own body warmth, it creates a soothing far infrared thermal heat, which can help alleviate pain associated with inflamed muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Tired or sore back muscles experience relief from this soft warmth therapy. When you ride with the Back on Track Mathilda Pad, your horse’s back muscles loosen, relax, and warm up quickly. The gentle warmth increases blood flow, which helps relieve muscle tension and pain. Wonderful for horses with cold or sore backs. The Mathilda Pad is thinner than other Back on Track saddle pads, and features a small diamond quilted design. The underside is moisture wicking and has a waffle texture for easy cleaning.
