Yes ma'am, there are..There are also a good number of different brands who carry different styles of an orthopedic western pad.
I've heard the Skito pads are great but I've never used on myself..I personally love Classic Equine pads...I have two of the Classic Equine ESP pads and I really want to get my hands on the new Classic Equine BioFit pads..It all really comes down to personal preference and what works best for the horse and rider.
Here are a few examples ranging from the cheaper pads to the more expensive pads..I myself, stick to the higher end pads because you get what you pay for..
Those impact gel ones look really neat. Of course so do the air ride ones. The ESP II one is the one you like? I wish I could see the bottom of it. I am really confused now. I have the vet coming out on Monday to do shots and Chiro, do you think she'd reccomend one? She is a dressage rider though...
I'll have to look up the Skito ones. I've never even heard of them....
I've never ridden in an ImpactGel but I've heard nice things about them..A lot of barrel racers use them and recommend them..I would get the second "version" though, there were complaints with the first pads getting hard after a while..The second version now has little bubbles and stuff inside so the gel stays squishy and can conform to your horse's back right every time. They are definitely my second choice to the ESP pads though..
I do love the ESP pads..They are fleece bottom and inside the fleece is memory foam that conforms to your horse. This is a picture of the bottom of my show pad that I've had and ride frequently in for three years now..They are my favorite pad ever lol...Awesome quality and last ages..
I've had a few not so great experiences with the Air Ride pads, they will slip and slide under your saddle...SorrelHorse actually has a great picture showing how much they will slide..
My ESP doesn't slip at all..I've had four total now and I've never had any slipping problem with any of them..More of the Air Ride pads or Neoprene bottom pads can slip but the ESP stays in place. The ESP pads really conform to your horse under your saddle and sit snug in the all the right spots..I'm not sure about the ImpactGel, I've never ridden in one.
