Impact Gel Pads

I'm am looking into buying a Impact Gel Saddle Pad, but I don't know anyone around here that owns one. So, I was wondering if you guys could help me out and give me some opinions, or if you have heard anything about them. I live in a part of the country that is very cold, and I heard that they tend to get hard from being so cold, but they warm up. I was wondering if anyone know if this is true, and how long it takes. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it very much!

I've never seen/tried one, but instead you can look into Thinline. This way you can use any pad you like (like those cheaper ones) + Thinline. May be cheaper in long run. Products > Saddle Pads > Western Saddle Pads - Horse Rider Performance Saddle Pads - ThinLine

I have english thinline for over a year and that was one of the best investments I made. It does absorb an impact for sure for both - horse and rider!

I've always used impact gel pads. I had one that was the round skirt for my rounder saddles, and a square skirt on. I used them for YEARS. I have switched over to the 5 Star pads. If you wanted to try those I have a cream one for sale. Both are great quality in my opinion and help relieve any pressure points.

First off in the winter months the gel will harden if not stored in a warm area so it will be stiff at first.
Also I would just get a good wool pad or an ESP saddle pad.

I don't see anything special about gel ones and heard they pretty much are pointless.

I looove my impact gel pads! Seriously, favorite pads ever. I have 4, a work one for my mare, a show one, a work one for my gelding, and a half pad for english. Whenever the chrio works on my horse, they're surprised at how strong her back is.. and yes, I do believe part of it is because of the pad. I have never had issues with freezing, but I they're kept in a heated tack room, so I guess I've never used a "cold" one.
