Recent pressure pictures taken by 'Estride' of our 'Pic-ha pad' being used under a modern driving saddle. You can clearly see the difference with and without the Pic-ha pad and the different pressure being spread more effectively . We will shortly be releasing video footage of the testing for all to see the difference #pichapad# Pichapad.com ... See MoreSee Less
Really interesting to see this. We have been using our Pic-ha pad for the last month or so and my pony is the most forward and free in his movement that he has ever been. He has rediscovered his "get up and go"! Appears to be muscling up over his shoulder again which previously had wastage.
This weekend we lent our pad to a friend to try on her boy and she was very pleasantly surprised too and will be putting an order in.
So pleased I made the leap!
Had a great day today pressure testing our Award Winning pic-ha pad. We used a new product about to be released by Stride innovations Ltd that can measure the pressure, through a rubber pad, between the driving saddle and the horse. This proved conclusively that our 'pic-ha pad ' works ! Using modern, synthetic and leather harness and traditional English made quality leather harness both improved my using the pad . We have pictures and video to prove this which is being made into short films for "you tube ' I would like to thank Martin Wilkinson and rosemary Neale for the use of there ponies and facilities , and Jackie Herd and Tim maloy of Cavewood Productions for filming and producing the films which will be out soon ...

Just to say I was enormously impressed with the difference in the way Sebastian went with the Pic-ha pad. Sceptical at first (you know me!) the difference in his way of going was immediate and huge! He was softer, able to stretch through his back, accepted the contact freely and willingly and went forward so much better. Martin and I are passionate about correct saddle fit and this does the same thing for the driving horse or pony. Well done paul chambers and Martin wilkinson.
