Professional's Choice Air ride pads?

Do they actually ease pressure like they say they do? Are they worth the price?
I'm specifically looking for a good barrel pad.

It should be horse listening, not horse whispering

I would stay clear of them....was at a demo that had many different pads. They stuck your hand under the pad against a saddle rack while they shifted the tree around. I buckled to the ground it hurt SO bad. I felt EVERYTHING and it was a sharp pain and they were barely putting 20lbs of pressure...I couldn't only imagine how that felt with a rider.

I prefer Impact Gels, EquiPedics, Classic Equine ESP or 5 Star pads....the Air Rides are a joke, and I know a lot of people who have had sore horses they switched to a different pad and the sore issue went away.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I would say the ESP (classic equine) , 5 star, best ever pad etc. Im not a fan of impact gel because like stated above I did a demo with them and they feel great for about 5 seconds then they loose there shape when pressure is added. Then they only regain the shape once the pressure is completely removed
