Considerable reduction of pressure spots • Improved saddle fit • Muscle support
Winderen - Back Protect Solution
The Winderen Saddle Half Pad with Back Protect Solution technology was designed to make you feel relaxed in the saddle while protecting both your and your horse’s back. Five technologically advanced layers provide you with maximum comfort, stability and enhance your riding experience by connecting horse and rider in complete harmony. See how we combined cutting-edge technology with elegance and comfort.
BALLISTIC NYLON UPPER SHELL
Replaceable, wear and tear-resistant, and durable - the upper shell protects the rest of the layers from external factors and prevents the Saddle Half Pad from moving and slipping underneath the saddle.
DYNAMIC STABILIZATION LAYER
This modern material is used to increase the surface of the saddle in contact with the horse's back and thereby stabilizes the saddle.This layer helps to compensate for the horse's body structure when the saddle does not fit properly.
This non-Newtonian material used in modern military industries is highly flexible and offers a substantial ability to store and absorb kinetic energy.It is used to capture excess energy generated while riding.
BIOMECHANICAL CONNECTIVE TISSUE
The synthetic biomechanical connective tissue designed to protect the muscles under the pad reduces the forces acting on the muscles along the horse's back and to facilitate their loosening and development.
KEVLAR BOTTOM SHELL
This layer has been designed to make the Back Protect Solution Saddle Half Pad stay firmly on the saddle cloth preventing the saddle from slipping.The porous structure of the Kevlar mesh ensures that the system of absorbers is supplied with fresh air protecting it against moisture.
Why does it have such spectacular effects on horses and their riders?
We present a video of our laboratory tests on Winderen Back Protect Solution half pads, demonstrating that their efficiency in terms of distribution and energy absorption is much greater than that of traditional solutions such as sheepskin pads or gel pads.
Replaceable Upper Shell
By introducing a system of replaceable covers in different colours, you can use the same Winderen Saddle Half Pad both for training sessions and competitions while being sure it always looks best.
The Back Protect Solution Saddle Half Pad has been designed to provide a maximum comfort, to allow free movement and to reduce the pressure on the spinous processes of the spine.
Saddle Half Pad “Correction”
The “Correction” version of Winderen’s Saddle Half Pad has a special cover that ensures the perfect fit regardless of the number of inserts used. No matter which configuration you choose its, panels remain stable and in an optimal position.
Correction saddle half-pad is based on Back Protect Solution inserts in Comfort version (18 mm / 0.7” thick) or Slim (10 mm / 0.4” thick).
Inserts with 6 pockets
More precise fit to the horse's muscles. The shape of the panels was created in consultation with veterinarians and physiotherapists to perfectly adapt to the horse's back line. The middle panel helps to correct the position and adherence of the saddle to the back of horses with hollowed back lines.
Cover Pad “Correction”
The Correction Pad comes with a cover with an elastic band that perfectly fits the inserts.
No matter which configuration of the pads you choose, the panels are always in an optimal and stable position.
Correction Panels “Felt”
The set includes panels in three thicknesses: 2 mm / 0.08”, 3 mm / 0.12” and 4 mm / 0.16”.
It allows you to adjust the pad up to 9 mm / 0.35” and makes it possible to regulate the desired correction in the range from 2 mm / 0.08” to 9 mm / 0.35” on both sides.
