Developed from the horse’s back up, Professional's Choice Comfort-Fit SMx Air Ride Saddle Pad is contoured to follow the curve of the horse’s spine. As a result, the pad locks in place on the horses back, allowing full movement. The SMx Air Ride core absorbs shock and improves saddle fit for ultimate equine comfort. The Air Ride core is made of a unique material found in the protective gear of professional human athletes for absorbing shock while allowing air flow to the skin, creating a natural cooling system that lowers the horse’s body temperature and slows the rate of fatigue. Fleece lining.
LEGEND of Hand to Horse: The Hand to Horse saddle pad represents both honor and trust in the equine companion. It bestows a forceful presence and joins the horse and rider in communication. The hand print is the most recognizable symbol placed on Native American horses. A hand print on the left side of the horse indicates “battle scars”. The “pat hand” on the right side is the highest of honors, signifying that the horse has brought his master home from a dangerous mission safely. Lightning is drawn on the horse to symbolize both power and speed. When seen it instills fear in their foes. The feather is very powerful in Native American lore. Honor and communion with the Creator was symbolized by decorating manes and tails with feathers.
