ACADEMIC PAD - SPECIAL is a riding pad with a seat used for contact riding without saddle and stirrups, designed especially for dressage riding and riding styles such as Philippe Karl School of Légèreté etc. It has extended vertically cut flaps and two girth straps.

Riding in ACADEMIC PAD - SPECIAL is very pleasant and comfortable thanks to the seat. The rider sits in the seat as well as in the saddle, rider is supported at sacrum section and makes less effort to keep straight and correct sitting position. The seat and flaps are filled with highly comfortable thermoactive gel foam.

ACADEMIC PAD - SPECIAL is made of anti-slip velour leather and the flaps are perforated with ventilation vents. On the bottom side is a foam with a textile that is resistant to horse sweat and therefore it does not stiff.

ACADEMIC PAD - SPECIAL does not have a frame or exchangeable gullet, so it can be purchased without fitting. We recommend saddle pad under the ACADEMIC PAD SPECIAL.

Why it is necessary to use original girth Baloun? All Baloun pads are developed and tested with an original girth. Our girth is with elastics on both ends and its elasticity is exactly as it needs for correct function of pads Baloun®. Some girths of other brands are without elastics and it can make a pressure on the horse or girths with too big elasticity of elastics can rotate or sliding on the horse. Because we can not guarantee girths of other brands we sell it only as a complet. If we are to guarantee a proper function of pads Baloun® it is neccessary to use it with girth Baloun®.
