The T3 Classics III Saddle Pad with Pro-Impact is the next generation of Toklat's popular Classics III quilted saddle pads. T3 Saddle Pads incorporate new technology into our traditional saddle pads for enhanced performance and protection for the horse. The lining is Bucas Stay Dry(TM), a fabric that wicks moisture rapidly away from the horse's back to speed up heat release.Stay Dry is antibacterial and anti-microbial for added protection. The quilt is high quality batting that breathes and will not retain moisture or soaps when washed. The Pro-Impact inserts are designed to protect the horse's back from the weight of the saddle and rider by absorbing the impact. Pro-Impact is an ultra-thin (5mm), ultra-light, breathable high density foam that absorbs 90% of the energy of saddle and rider impact on the horse's back. Choose Pro-Impact if your horse has a well developed topline and/or a custom fit saddle as the Pro-Impact will not change the profile or fit. For a horse with uneven topline development or less-than-perfect saddle fit, consider T3 Classics III with Ortho-Impact. Saddle pad and inserts are machine washable, line dry.
