Ride-Lightpads are veterinarian approved
for all disciplines and clinically proven to
lessen back pain, relieve pressure on the
spinal processes and help equalize pressure
and heat along and accross the horse's back.
The thermographic examples on this page
compare the effects of the ride light pad to
other popular types of pads.
Since it's inception, Ride-Light's developers
have been performing on-going
thermography based research to determine
the physiological effect of Ride-Light versus
competing saddle pads. Thermography
images show a color-coded heat signature of
the surface temperature of the area tested.
Surface temperature indicates pressure, pain
reaction, and blood-flow in a particular area.
Preliminary results show a 20% - 50%
reduction in surface temperature of the
horses' backs after using the Ride-Light pad
from comparable rides in competing pads.
Reductions in surface temperature mean a
cooler horse, with less pain, and more even
Our pads are currently undergoing extensive
testing including heart rate monitoring at all
gaits with numerous horses and riders. The
results will be posted soon on this web site.
