Engineered For the needs of Gaited Horses, Treeless Saddles and Trail.
Jen X Equine works with the top Impact Technology, Performance Sporting Textiles and Medical/Orthopedic companies to develop the world's first products engineered specifically for equine athletes everywhere. Our products are manufactured using all materials made in the United States ... from the seeds that grew them to the people who mill, cut and sew them.
Our Gaited, Treeless and Trail Saddle Pads a hybrid of historic washable Pendleton wool fabric and high tech sport performance textiles. Pendleton is a 150 year old Family owned American company that has been weaving world class fabrics in the Pacific NW for over 100 years. Pendleton wool, pictured throughout history draped around the greatest of men such as Chief Joseph and Sitting Bull, legendary for its beauty and its durability, - lasting through generations, is the fabric we are so very honored to use to make our Pads and Blankets.
30mm 20 micron density Fleece - The days of soggy, fungus infested saddle pads are over thanks to our Sheepskin Alternative Fleece. This wash/dry/bleach friendly fleece provides rapid heat release along with pressure relief. Excellent breathability allows air and blood flow to circulate freely between the saddle pad and your horse's back.
ETC is a lightweight, breathable washer/dryer/color safe bleach friendly material that provides grip without friction. It's the only non-slip in the industry physiologically sound for horses. The weave acts as a membrane to encourage moisture evaporation and prevent heat build up.
Savoire Suede, a super-soft, super-tough micro denier textile that enhances the performance and freedom of Treeless styles without slipping and friction. Exceptional durability and abrasion resistance, Sav Suede is washable, breathable, wicks and evaporates moisture and tested over 50,000 revolutions. There is not a comparable fabric on the market.
Our Gaited horse pads have 3" of 40% stretch, military grade elastic spines. The pads are NOT sewn down the middle but joined together by the elastic, creating independent panels that absorb and stretch, without binding or friction, to the movements unique to the Gaited horse. The elastic controls the movement so your pad stays in place while still allowing for complete freedom of the shoulder and withers, enhancing your horse's ability to gait.
Breather Cloth provides an innovative core of highly breathable non-woven polyester capable of wicking moisture and dispersing temperatures up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit.
