Winderen - Back Protect Solution
The Winderen Saddle Half Pad with Back Protect Solution technology was designed to make you feel relaxed in the saddle while protecting both your and your horse’s back. Five technologically advanced layers provide you with maximum comfort, stability and enhance your riding experience by connecting horse and rider in complete harmony. See how we combined cutting-edge technology with elegance and comfort.
Benefits for the Horse:
The significant spot pressure reduction and the even load distribution on the horse's back make your saddle fit properly.
The muscles along your horse's back can now loosen and tighten much more easily during your everyday training sessions.
Your horse moves freely and easily in each gait.
Dynamically Reduced Pressure
The pressure on your horse’s back when taking off and landing during jumping is significantly reduced.
Benefits for the Rider:
Your back muscles work more freely when riding and jumping.
You will suffer from much less back and neck pain after training sessions or competitions.
Minimized instability effect.
BALLISTIC NYLON UPPER SHELL
Replaceable, wear and tear-resistant, and durable - the upper shell protects the rest of the layers from external factors and prevents the Saddle Half Pad from moving and slipping underneath the saddle.
DYNAMIC STABILIZATION LAYER
This modern material is used to increase the surface of the saddle in contact with the horse's back and thereby stabilizes the saddle. This layer helps to compensate for the horse's body structure when the saddle does not fit properly.
This non-Newtonian material used in modern military industries is highly flexible and offers a substantial ability to store and absorb kinetic energy. It is used to capture excess energy generated while riding.
BIOMECHANICAL CONNECTIVE TISSUE
The synthetic biomechanical connective tissue designed to protect the muscles under the pad reduces the forces acting on the muscles along the horse's back and to facilitate their loosening and development.
KEVLAR BOTTOM SHELL
This layer has been designed to make the Back Protect Solution Saddle Half Pad stay firmly on the saddle cloth preventing the saddle from slipping. The porous structure of the Kevlar mesh ensures that the system of absorbers is supplied with fresh air protecting it against moisture.
Available in two thicknesses:
Back Protect Solution - Comfort
The Winderen Saddle Half-Pad Comfort (18 mm / 0,7” thick) suits most saddles.
Back Protect Solution - Slim
The Winderen Saddle Half-Pad Slim (10 mm / 0.4” thick) was requested by riders with custom-made saddles and was designed for their special requirements.
Replaceable Upper Shell
By introducing a system of replaceable covers in different colours, you can use the same Winderen Saddle Half Pad both for training sessions and competitions while being sure it always looks best.
The Back Protect Solution Saddle Half Pad for horses has been designed to provide maximum comfort, to allow free movement and to reduce the pressure on the spinous processes of the spine.
Easy to Maintain
The dirt resistance of the upper shell makes the pad easy to maintain. You can clean it with a moistened sponge or wash it (after removing the inside layers) at a temperature of 30˚C.
Sizes of Your Choice
Within our selection of sizes you can choose a matching pad that perfectly fits your saddle.
Saddle Half Pad “Correction”
The “Correction” version of Winderen’s Saddle Half Pad has a special cover that ensures the perfect fit regardless of the number of inserts used. No matter which configuration you choose, its panels remain stable and in an optimal position.
Correction saddle half-pad is based on Back Protect Solution inserts in Comfort version (18 mm / 0.7” thick) or Slim (10 mm / 0.4” thick).
More precise fit to the horse's muscles. The shape of the panels was created in consultation with veterinarians and physiotherapists to perfectly adapt to the horse's back line.
The middle panel helps to correct the position and adherence of the saddle to the back of horses with hollowed back lines.
The Correction Pad comes with a cover with an elastic band that perfectly fits the inserts.
No matter which configuration of the pads you choose, the panels are always in an optimal and stable position.
The set includes panels in three thicknesses: 2 mm / 0.08”, 3 mm / 0.12” and 4 mm / 0.16”.
It allows you to adjust the pad up to 9 mm / 0.35” and makes it possible to regulate the desired correction in the range from 2 mm / 0.08” to 9 mm / 0.35” on both sides.
Anna Jasińska - Kaźmierczak - Veterinary Doctor:
“I work with horses on a daily basis using manual therapy and acupuncture. There are many methods that try to solve the problems with spine muscles but the key to success lies in a perfect fit of the saddle and a free muscle movement. I observed the process of the Winderen - Back Protect Solution Pad from its beginning. The pad has been simultaneously tested on three of my horsey patients. I knew the horses that were selected for the tests very well - when I started to work with them, they all had problems with proper development of spinal muscles as well as with relaxation during the training. We started the tests in July 2016. After 6 weeks of using Winderen - Back Protect Solution Pads, the backs of my horsey patients changed significantly. There was an increase in muscle mass in the quadriceps muscles, parallelogram muscles and the longest muscles of the back, and the softness of the muscles in the thoracic and lumbar region of the spine subsided. After three months, the back muscles of my patients reached a very satisfactory level, and all ailments disappeared. These horses are continuously working the with Winderen - Back Protect Solution Pads and I have been examining them on a regular basis to date. The most pleasant fact for me as a veterinarian is that the back of my patients is maintained at the correct level. All those horses became apparently more relaxed both while being trained under the saddle and on the lunge line. Undoubtedly the Winderen Saddle Half Pad with Back Protect Solution is a product I have not yet seen on the market".
