GELITE SADDLE PAD THE ULTIMATE IN EQUINE CUSHIONING TECHNOLOGY
The ultimate in equine back protection has come in the form of the Gelite saddle pad distributed by Jeffries Saddlery who has longstanding links with Major Richard Waygood MBE former Riding Master of the Household Cavalry, Chef d' Equipe to the British Dressage Team and two star eventing team, renowned coach and International Competitor. Richard has worked closely with Jeffries Saddlery in the development and selection of some products.
Richard said “By the very nature of ceremonial work, the horses are ridden for long periods of time. This is accompanied by the extra weight of the ceremonial uniform and equipment which you would expect to create trauma for the horse. The horse’s wellbeing and performance is of paramount importance to the Household Cavalry. Both performance and wellbeing have been significantly improved when the Gelite pad is used which acts as a shock absorber helping to absorb the weight and cushion the back."
