Our MOTION BALANCE FABRIC has four layers of unique 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. Made from 99% recycled materials.

Vegan 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

Cotton Base – nothing beats cotton when it comes to comfort, so we chose a breathable cotton base to be next to your horse’s skin.

Advanced Shim Technology

Poly-Memory- Gel Shims/ Inserts allow impact zones caused by saddle or rider to be absorbed evenly, removing pressure points and discomfort for both rider and horse. This innovative blend of cushioning materials will give your horse the ultimate comfort.
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.

We use beautiful wool shearling for our saddle pads because of its amazing properties. Just like genuine sheepskin, our shearling 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.
This fabric is very resilient and easy to care for. And best of all, it is cruelty free! No sheep are harmed or killed to make this material.
