Sedelogic Pads were developed in the Netherlands by Veterinarians and AeroSpace engineers.

The Sedelogic pad is constructed of a number of very breathing layers of three dimensionally woven polyester fibres. Because of the ventilation in the open three dimensional structure, less heat accumulation will occur under the saddle. Therefore also the horse back will remain dryer. As a result of this breathing structure less lesions of the horse skin will appear and the number of back pain complains will lessen.

There are four pad designs available:

The new S-Curve Pad (see below)
The Orthopad (avail in medium and large)
The Standard 2 ply pad (avail in pony, medium and large)

Freedom to shoulders and withers
The striking S-curve at the front gives space to shoulders and withers, allowing your horse to make larger movements. This enables unrestricted top performance.

In the new S-curve pad, Thermapt technology is integrated: At the rear a rigid thermoplastic material is sandwiched creating an even larger pressure distribution and thereby reducing the peak pressure in the kissing spine area. This layer also provides a small increase in thickness, shifting the weight of the rider towards the front of the saddle, which further relieves the kissing spine area.

The suspension of the stirrup is a prevalent cause of high peak pressures. The S-curve pad has a recess at the suspension of the stirrup. In this way the stirrup gets some tolerance and the surrounding absorbs the pressure over a larger area.

Breathing structure

Ventilation is an important quality of a saddle pad. The warm and humid air underneath the saddle can escape and is replaced by cooler and less humid ambient air. The Sedelogic pads are constructed of a number of very breathing layers of three dimensionally woven polyester fibres. Because of the ventilation in the open three dimensional structure, less heat accumulation will occur under the saddle. Therefore also the horse back will remain dryer.

The dew point is a quantity which describes the combined effect of air temperature and humidity. An increase in air temperature and an increase in humidity both lead to an increase in dew point. The dew point gives a good indication of ventilation.


The graph shows the dew point versus time for Sedelogic products and regular non-ventilating fabrics. The dew point starts off at the value of the ambient air, and rises to a steady state due to heat and transpiration of the body. Because of the passive ventilation of the Sedelogic 3D woven structure, the steady state dew point in rest is substantially lower than that of products made from regular non-ventilating fabrics. A lower dew point means a lower combination of temperature and humidity.

Physical activity increases the heat and transpiration from the body. Therefore, the dew point increases for the products made from regular non-ventilating fabrics. However, the dew point decreases for the Sedelogic products. Active ventilation takes place: The body movement causes the Sedelogic 3D woven structure to repeatedly collapse and regain its shape again. This results in an active outward flow of warm and humid air, and an inward flow of cooler and less humid ambient air.
