Horse Tack Review


Impact Gel Equine
Western Contour Pad (32" 3/4" thick)
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Impact Gel Equine
Model: Western Contour Pad (32" 3/4" thick)
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I ordered from my local tack store for $200

Likes: I custom ordered the pad through my tack store with black wear leathers. The company shipped very quickly, and I had my pad in a week. It helped with both saddle fit and my mares' comfort level. Also, it seems to absorb shock so I (my back) am more comfortable. I have no trouble feeling what she's doing, thought I worried about that because of the thickness. My mare has completely even sweat marks, and is a much happier horse, even when she's in season and tends to be touchy. Downward transitions, which are not easy for this horse, seem to be much more fluid since using this pad. So far, I love the Impact Gel. I still have a few days to return for another model or refund, but I think it's a keeper!

Dislikes: My only complaint is the price $200 for a pad!!!!!!

Quality: GOOD!!!!!

Summary: I called and talked with several manufacturers, as well as looked at numerous pads before I bought the Impact Gel. Although I had been disappointed in the longevity and protection in my 1-yr-old Professionals Choice SMX pad, I considered buying one of their HD pads until I talked with other company reps. I am very happy with this pad, and so is my horse. Will write in a few months to follow up on the wear ability of this product.
