What makes our saddle pads so different from everything else on the market? …. Just about everything….

The next generation of saddle pads from the designer of the first Official Saddle Pads of the USEF. If you watched the Olympics or the WEG, you’ve seen Jen’s work.

Why are they shaped like that you ask?… They are ergonomic and shaped to today’s saddle panels. Our XP Half Pads evenly support the entire length of your saddle panels AND your horse’s muscles under them. Complete support increases range of motion of the shoulder and stability of the saddle. Why do all other companies make their half pads to fit saddle panels from the late 1800’s? …. We don’t know either.

Jen X Equine presents the Xtreme Performance Collection. All American high performance sporting textiles chosen specifically for the needs of equine sport and a unique dressage saddle pad. Washer/dryer/ color safe bleach safe, make this the most advanced pad on the market. Available in AP/Close Contact and Dressage styles. All half pads are insert and shim compatible. MADE IN THE USA BY ALL U.S. MADE MATERIALS.

30mm 20 micron density Fleece is ergonomically cut to provide optimal support of both the saddle panels and your horses back. This cut gives even and optimal support and does not bisect the muscles of the shoulder like all other pads. The days of soggy, fungus infested saddle pads are over thanks to our duel acting Sheepskin Alternative Fleece’s 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.

The top fabric is ETC fabric. ETC is a lightweight, breathable easy clean, dirt repellent 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.

Breather Cloth provides our innovative core of highly breathable non-woven polyethylene that is capable of wicking moisture and dispersing temperatures up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit. Our core is resistant to oils, solvents, acids and alkalis. It provides multidirectional conformability and contains no binders that could seal off air flow. Our Breather Cloth Core is rated at 155psi.

Our inserts are made from XRD Technology, Impact and Support Foams – Equestrian sports rank in the top 10 most dangerous sports in the world. NFL and NHL don’t even make the list. – Using cutting edge nano and molecular technologies, we developed impact and soft tissue support foams that are tested and rated for equine sports. We use almost double the amount of XRD than other equine companies because for us its not about profit and yield, it’s about the safety of riders and horses. Our foams are Microban injected to inhibit bacterial growth. There is no apples to apples in this market… there is Jen X Equine and all others.

    I started following Jen X Equine a while back and recently had a reason to finally order one of these pads. I primarily do dressage, and after finding a saddle for my youngster that nearly fit but is a bit too wide- independent saddle fitter evaluated to confirm. Fortunately before going the route of another saddle for a growing horse, I was told to add a half pad. I had a collection of shimmable pads from a popular company, that have not made the grade, so I ordered a JenX dressage half pad with the 1/2” inserts to use with an 18” saddle with short panels.
    I love the shape of the half pad. Dressage saddles often have longer tree points & shoulder gussets, but most English style half pads only extend just below the stirrup bars. Its nice finally having a pad that offers the right areas of support.
    I chose the 1/2” inserts after a lot of hemming & hawing over it. One of my concerns of other insert & shims in the past is so many seem nice sitting in a tack room shelf, and by description should be good material, but once sandwiches under a girthed up saddle & rider, they compacts to nothing- or they trap so much heat I feel bad even using them. I’m really pleased with how these 1/2” inserts have functioned in our rides so far. I was surprised at the flexibility of the inserts but the material is still dense to work the way I’d hoped it would, for the bit of correction to my current saddle. I like that down the line I could exchange for a different insert as my horse continues to grow & develop, or for use with another horse.
