What makes our pads so different from everything else on the market? .... Just about everything....
The next generation of 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. 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.
