ECOGOLD’s CoolFit™: The Intelligent Saddle Pad That Keeps Your Horse Cooler
ECOGOLD has integrated smart textiles in its CoolFit™ Saddle Pad to create an intelligent saddle pad. Smart textiles are materials that can sense and react to environmental conditions or or stimuli from mechanical, thermal, chemical, electric or magnetic sources. Thanks to the innovative smart textiles, the CoolFit™ saddle pad senses the sweat of the horse and reacts by reducing its temperature, providing a healthier and more comfortable ride.
ECOGOLD worked with fabric manufacturers to develop the smart textiles, according to their specifications, for the production of the CoolFit™ Saddle Pad in dressage, jumping, cross-country, and hunter styles.
In this video, we use a simple test to numerically show how the “intelligent” CoolFit™ Pad at room temperature senses the moisture of the horse’s sweat, simulated with warm water, and reacts by reducing its temperature of 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit).
The CoolFit™ saddle pad and its use of smart textiles is a revolutionary innovation to saddle pads and can help increase the comfort of horses in moderate to heavy work or those being ridden in warm temperatures. The addition of smart textiles brings about the age of new innovation and technology into equestrian textiles and places the comfort of the horse as the utmost importance.
Available in the jumper, cross country, and dressage style in two different sizes, the CoolFit™ saddle pad provides the traditional non-slip security and high quality of ECOGOLD while delivering an intelligent pad for smart riders.
