This felt shock absorber has been specially developed with international CSO riders. It combines felt wool for shock absorbing and orthopedic foam to spread out the pressure. This shock absorber totally protects your horse’s back whilst remaining in close contact with it.
Your horse’s back is protected thanks to the following advantages:
- The ergonomic shape which adapts perfectly to the skirts of the CSO saddles of all well-known saddlers
- The front is very open to avoid pressure on the withers
- The orthopedic foam allows the absorbtion of compression points. It is covered in leather to stop the saddle slipping
- The two layers of wool felt give a complete compromise between shock absorbing while remaining fine (2 layers of 4mm of felt wool, density 0.3g/cm2) to stay in close contact with your horse.
If your horse has very wide withers, we can make a custom made shock absorber with specifically adapted layers of foam (choose : compensate withers). We can also adapt for horses with a hollow back (choose : compensate back) which will allow you to position the saddle perfectly on the horse’s back
