Ortho-Impact Inserts from Toklat are suitable for general riding and training. These inserts are beneficial for horses who have uneven muscle development, weaker back muscles, or a less-than-perfect saddle fit. Ortho-Impact insert has two layers consisting of 5 mm of ultra-thin, ultra-light Poron XRD bonded to a 12 mm layer of medium density viscoelastic foam. These materials provide stability and impact protection. Poron XRD is a high density open cell foam that absorbs 90% of impact energy. It minimizes bounce, protects the horse's back muscles, and gives the rider greater seat security. The viscoelastic foam fills in gaps and lets the saddle settle and stabilize for cushioning without interfering with range of motion. The Matrix T3 Ergonomic Half Pad with CoolBack is machine washable and dryer safe. White.
