The Very Important Pad

With the well-being and performance of our horses in mind, we looked at the available gel pad products on the market and thought we could do better! We discovered Akton® Polymer as our raw material; a renowned viscoelastic polymer that has been rigorously tested worldwide in 40 years of human grade, peer reviewed, research. It is universally trusted in human clinical and sporting settings for its superior pressure relieving, impact and sheer force reducing qualities.

Every horse deserves to be a VIP!

the very important pad is unique

  • Superior textured structure gives high tensile strength, the key to maintaining shape under extreme and prolonged compression

  • Soft, flexible and seamless with no pressure causing trims

  • Moulds to your horses back like a low profile second skin

  • A thin film gullet eliminates pressure on the horse’s spine

  • Only 8mm thick so does not alter your saddle fit

  • Bobbles increase surface area, alleviating pressure points and evenly distributing weight

  • Non-sticky, does not cause friction or pluck hair when removed


Made from Akton® Polymer, a renowned viscoelastic polymer

  • Rigorously tested worldwide in 40 years of scientific research

  • Universally trusted in human clinical and sporting settings for its superior pressure relieving, impact and sheer force reducing qualities

  • Draws and disperses heat from the horses back, regulating temperature

  • Hypoallergenic, easily cleanable and does not support bacterial growth
