This pad provides ¼ inch (6.5mm) extra lift and protection under the front of a saddle that has been chosen in a width that allows for it, as done in Functional Saddling methods.
BALANCE Pro-Complete ¼ inch JB Pad
This is the thinnest of the ‘Add-On’ pads and the minimal amount of lift and protection that we recommend that is used on a well developed and well muscled horse, as part of an ongoing Maintenance Saddling programme. It is also a great pad to use as part of a Remedial Padding System
The pad is made using the Pro-Lite gel-foam insert, covered in a faux suede material, in the black and brown versions, and in cotton for the bright white version. It has the hook side of a hook/loop fastening system on the underside to attach to any of our Wool-Fleece pads or a Base Pad. It can also be used in a layered arrangement with the large version of the ¼ inch (6.5mm) JB pad (LJB ¼"), in order to provide more lift at the front of the saddle when needed.
This size of JB pad is suitable for use under:
English saddles in adult sizes (from 17" up).
Treeless saddles in adult sizes.
Bareback pads in adult sizes.
Baroque style saddles.
The dimensions of this pad are shown below.
A -- B = 7" (18cm)
C -- D = 15" (38cm)
Being able to move in a powerful, balanced and engaged way, without restriction or discomfort, is every horse’s birth-right and essential in order for him to be able to carry the unnatural weight of a rider, without doing harm to himself.
