Coopersridge Saddle Pad Technology



Our MOTION BALANCE FABRIC features four layers of materials that join forces to balance and stabilize, giving you and your horse a harmonized and relaxed ride.  Quilted together with our unique Breeze pattern for maximum air flow.

Suede Ultra Grip – this lush fabric has grip in all directions to keep your pad in place with no straps or Velcro.

PMG Lite – A thinner, lighter version of our PMG Shims, giving you more pressure dispersal built right into your pad!

Moisture Wick – added to enhance air flow and keep your horse cool and dry

Poly Cotton Base – nothing beats cotton when it comes to comfort, so our Motion Balance Fabric features a poly cotton base next to your horse’s skin.

Advanced Shim Technology

Poly-mem-gel Shims allow impact zones caused by saddle or rider to be absorbed evenly, removing pressure points and discomfort for both horse and rider.
Our shims are created with an exclusive combination of materials that work together to:

  • Absorb shock
  • Disperse pressure points evenly
  • Reduce the build-up of trapped heat
  • Speed up spring back time for instant shim recovery
  • Provide support and weight distribution

Front and Back Shims
Our Front and Back PMG Shims can be used in combination with the Full PMG Inserts. Each Front and Back PMG Shim has a tapered edge that blends seamlessly into the Full PMG Insert and prevent pressure points under the saddle.
Front and Back PMG Shims can be used to help correct issues with poorly fitting saddles.
Coopersridge Hunter/ Jumper and Dressage half pads and Western Saddle Pads all have easy-open Velcro pockets to work with our Advanced Shim Technology. This allows you to insert and remove shims effortlessly.



Air Weave

Our Air Weave has 10 times the air flow of regular knit fabrics! Used in everything from medical products to military body armor, this fabric is supremely durable and long lasting.


A luxurious and very traditional material used in saddle pads because of its unbeatable properties. Sheepskin has the natural capability to disperse pressure and resist compression. It helps to keep your horse cool and dry by wicking moisture away from the skin. When cared for properly, sheepskin has great longevity and durability. Coopersridge uses hand-picked hides from New Zealand.


Just like sheepskin, our shearling provides comfortable cushioning for your horses back, as well as keeping him cool.. Made from genuine wool, this fabric is very resilient and easy to care for.


A unique addition to our saddle pads is the Eco-Grip top layer. This keeps the pad in place under the saddle, with no twisting or shifting. This also removes the need for extra Velcro and straps.
