BALLISTIC NYLON UPPER SHELL
Replaceable, wear and tear resistant and durable, the upper shell protects the remaining layers from external factors and prevents the saddle half pad from moving underneath the saddle and slipping.
DYNAMIC STABILIZATION LAYER
This modern material has been used to increase the surface of the saddle touching the horse's back and stabilize the saddle. This layer helps compensate for the horse's body structure when the saddle does not quite fit properly.
This non-Newtonian material, used in modern military industry, is highly flexible and has a considerable ability to store and absorb kinetic energy. It has been used to capture excess energy generated when riding on the horse's back.
BIOMECHANICAL CONNECTIVE TISSUE
The synthetic biomechanical connective tissue, designed to protect the muscles under the pad, has been used to reduce the forces acting on the muscles along the horse's back and to facilitate their loosening and building.
KEVLAR BOTTOM SHELL
This layer has been designed to make the Back Protect Solution saddle half pad stay firmly on the saddle cloth, preventing the saddle from slipping. The porous structure of the kevlar mesh makes this layer supply air to the system of absorbers, protecting it against moisture.

Anna Jasińska - Kaźmierczak - veterinary doctor
“On a daily basis I work with horses using manual therapy and acupuncture. There are many methods trying to solve the problems with spine muscles but the key to success lies in a perfect matching of the saddle and the freedom muscle's movement.
I witnessed the process of the Winderen - Back Protect Solution pad from the beginning. The pad has been simultaneously tested on three of my patients. I knew the horses that were selected for the tests very well - when I started to work with them they all had problems with proper development of spinal muscles as well as its loosening during training.
We started the tests in July 2016. After 6 weeks of using Winderen - Back Protect Solution pads, the backs of my patients changed significantly. There was an increase in muscle mass in the quadriceps muscles, parallelogram muscles and the longest muscles of the back, and the tenderness of the muscles in the thoracic and lumbar region of the spine subsided.
After three months the back muscles of my patients reached a very satisfactory level, and all the ailments disappeared.
"These horses continue to work with Winderen - Back Protect Solution pads and I get to see them regularly until this day. What is most pleasing to me as a physician is the fact that the back of my patients is maintained at the right level. All the horses became apparently more relaxed both in the work under the saddle and on the lung. Undoubtedly the Winderen Saddle Half Pad with Back Protect Solution is a product I have not encountered on the market yet".
