Re: [RC] Supracore Pads - Truman Prevatt

What I found with the supracor is when they are new - they work fine. However, the material breaks down. For awhile it worked great. Then as it broke down - it started to cause problems.

Hello Beth,

I have used an Orthoflex Patriot with a WoolBack pad for years with no problems but thought the idea of more air flow and a cooler back for my horse would be an improvement so we tried the Supracore (regular endurance style) for 3 months on training rides and 4 50's. I found the pad to be too stiff and very abrasive to my horse's skin during the long hours of endurance. The last ride with the pad we completed the hot 3day 155mi HogWilder. Several days after getting home the skin on my horse's back, where the pad was pressed down by the saddle, started flaking off. It was a huge area telling me that this was not a pad for my horse. That had never happened before and has never happened again after going back to the WoolBack. I sold the pad for $100 to a lady here in San Diego. Just my experience.
