TACKY-TACK, by Equi-Tech, pads are made from a soft material which allows airflow and "grips" both the horse and/or the saddle. The material does not trap heat, hair or sweat. The lightweight, soft and stretchy texture is deceptively tough. Pads are constructed with ventilated shock absorbing, soft, durable foam. Patented TACKY-TACK pad top and bottom. 1" thick foam center. 30" x 30". U.S. Patent 7,032,366.
