Close Contact Gel & Memory Foam Half Pad - The Acavallo close contact Classic Gel pad in memory foam combines the non-slip and shock-proof properties of the classic Gel Acavallo models with the shock absorbing properties of memory foam with a suede lining and a tapered shape that guarantees a deep contact of the pad to the horse’s back.

A great strength of the Gel is to avoid any unwanted movement of the saddle in any direction: forward, back and sideways.
Furthermore, the Gel is able to compensate for the small imperfections of the horse’s back, making it suitable also for the backs that are a bit more “rounded”.

The anatomic cut of the pad and the technical characteristics of the memory foam allows the pad to adapt and shape itself deeply to the silhouette of the horse, also allowing the surface pressure to be distributed over a large area.
To these features are added the ability to absorb shocks, dampen vibrations and regulate the horse’s body temperature.

The Acavallo® Classic Gel is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and does not react negatively in contact with the skin, characteristics that allow the pad to be used directly in contact with it.

Half Pad

I love it also! Well made and as described.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Oh and did I mention love it?!

For a while I was so indecisive about a half pad, being a rider who rides many horses, some with “normal” back, others with some back problems ( but can still be ridden), and being a budget rider coming across equizone that had amazing discounts really helped!!!! This product adjusts to every horses back, doesn’t move around, and is super stylish, perfect for everyone riding.
If you are looking for a half pad and can’t decide which one to get, I would recommend going for this one!
