Impact Gel is designed to be different.
This world class product is pushing the envelope of saddle pads. The patented gel in the saddle pads minimizes shock, weight, heat, and inconsistencies of saddle fit — for the most comfortable ride of your life.
Tired of uncomfortable rides filled with soreness afterwards?
Every Impact Gel saddle pad includes gel technology bladders. The semi-solid Impact Gel has incredible shock absorption properties because of how energy is transferred and dissipated through the molecular structure of the gel. Energy flows horizontally through the gel away from the impact location, similar to ripples on the surface of a pond. Impact Gel pads are unsurpassed in relieving pressure points caused by a poor fitting saddle – a major cause of white spots. The benefit from this is the horse stays fresher longer and performs better.
The technology and fit of Impact Gel saddle pads was perfected and has been a first choice for riders for fifteen years. The gel bladders are shaped and situated to fit under the bars of the saddle and keep pressure off the spine. The craftsmanship of the saddle pad includes a cutout at the withers providing free range of motion, cut away at the billet for perfect rigging, and contour cut along the spine for maximum fit. The wool blend of the saddle pad is moisture wicking and allows air between the pad and horse, improving circulation.
Impact Gel saddle pads are hand crafted in Wisconsin and built to last. Impact Gel is unaffected by extreme temperatures. Between -40⁰F and 250⁰F Impact Gel retains its energy absorbing properties. Our unique wool blend wicks moisture and is incredibly durable. Heavy duty wear leathers are made with fresh-prepared hides which can maintain their properties at least 50 years.

After searching and searching and searching for the right pad, I sprung the cash and bought an Impact Gel. Best decision I ever made. It fits everyone of my horses just right and I’ll most definitely buy another. Spring the cash if you want your horse and yourself comfortable. There’s a noticeable difference with these pads!.
This saddle pad has been amazing for my horse. The horse before this pad would always get a sore back after riding all day, and with this pad he doesn't at all. I love how it's versatile for both my round skirt barrel saddle and my square skirt all around saddle. The fit is perfect and this pad lasts forever not wearing down like other brands pads.

I have no more back or shoulder soreness issues after switching to Impact Gel pads on my barrel & rope horses. After having my back rebuilt I also use the Impact Gel pads on my saddles for my comfort & protection! It makes my orthopedic doctor feel better too as he knows I will not give up riding & competing. I am 56 years young. Impact gel pads extend both mine & my horses lifestyle."
"I believe in it. I use it. I don't think any other saddle pad can compete with the Impact Gel saddle pad."
How it works
What is Impact Gel?
Impact Gel is a patented material made of interconnected energy dissipating molecules. These structures, called cross-links, allow the gel molecules to move freely around one another while remaining linked. This absorbs and dissipates force of impact and pressure points associated with inconsistencies of saddle fit.
