This Brown Felt Zone Series Pad from Classic Equine is made with a felt top to absorb shock and percussion. Along with a zoombang insert to reduce injury and stress on your horse. The Zoombang insert works like a gel pad to form to your horses back with pressure. However on impact the molecules align like a solid barrier to protect your horse. After the impact the pad goes back to gel, the pad goes back and forth constantly to give your horse the protection and comfort they deserve. While the orthopedic grade felt at the bottom of your pad absorbs the moisture while remaining soft and pliable.
