The Very Important Pad (VIP) is a half pad made with VEteq™, a proprietary viscoelastic polymer. This polymer has been used for over 50 years in human medical settings in the prevention and treatment of pressure sores and ulcers in human patients. The impact protection of this proprietary polymer behaves like fat and skin and doesn’t leak or bottom out under pressure, providing a superior layer of cushioning to the horse’s back.

With a variety of sizes available, the VIP can be used with both English and Western saddles.

Textured structure gives high tensile strength to maintain shape under prolonged compression.

Bobbles alleviate pressure points and evenly distribute weight.

Soft, flexible and seamless with no pressure causing trims.
