Product Summary:

Impact Gel Barrel Contour Saddle Pad

Impact Gel has re-designed their Barrel Contour Saddle Pad in a comfortable wool/polyester blend. Impact Gel Technology offers critical protection, moving shock, weight, and heat laterally throughout the gel. This creates an unprecedented energy absorbing fit, resulting in a high-performance, non-slip, non-rollover protection for you and your horse. The high impact reduction system minimizes inconsistencies in the fit of your equipment, resulting in better contact between the saddle and the horse’s spine.


  • Handcrafted and sewn in the USA
  • Contains the Impact Gel Base Layer System
  • Unique wool blend allows air between the pad and horse, improving circulation
  • Heavy-duty wear leathers ensure years of durability
  • Flexibility and even pressure point distribution
Item Specifications:

28" overall length, 16" front, 13" rear

how thick is this pad?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The thickness varies in different areas of the pad. I'd say it's nearly an inch thick where the actual gel pad is.
does this pad come longer?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is one made for a saddle with square skirts
Are the two colours available for shipping today ?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Both colors are currently in stock and available for shipment.
Is this a good pad to use with a treeless saddle?
Lauren on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My daughter barrel racers, so we don't have a treeless. I imagine it would work just fine.
It doesn't slide with movement at all. Once it's in place and the saddle is on that's where it stays.
What are the measurements?how big is this pad?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This new Impact Gel Barrel Pad features an overall length of 28” with the front of the pad extending down 16”, while the rear of the pad extends 13” from the center line.
Does this come in 30x30 it has no size info?
Cindy N on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Cindy,

The pad is roughly 30x30. Plus a few inches. Definitely no less then 30inches But my gf loves em. She has six horses and I'm always buying gel pads for her. Hope this helps you.
Does this come in half inch thickness?
Laurie V on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer this in the 1/2" thickness. However, it can be purchased directly from Impact Gel. Click the link below!
What is the spine length if this pad? Will it fit my 14" saddle which is 27" in length?
Dee V on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, my custom saddle has no skirt and it fits perfectly
What is the spine length of this pad? Thanks.
Dee V on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is nice and short. Fits my QH 15.2 cow pony perfectly
Does anybody think this saddle pad would fit a 15'' barrel racing saddle??
Lexi S on Jul 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Lexi my saddle is a 16 inch endurance saddle, and the pad fits with maybe 3 inches to spare. I ride in the mountains with a lot of up-and-down, and the pad doesn't slip. But IF you have a saddle that slips forward or backwards much at all, I don't think you would have much wiggle-room with this pad. My horses are gaited horses with short backs, which is part of the reason I love this pad. It also provides a lot of cushion without being bulky. If you have a longer-backed quarter horse though, there may be a longer pad that will work better for you. If I barrel raced I could probably answer your question better, but I just don't know how much saddles slip when barrel racing. Hope that helps-
Will this fit a 15inch square barrel saddle?
Roger D on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would get the 30 by 30 contour pad to fit a square skirted saddle. I have put the barrel pad under a smaller square skirted saddle but if it is a 15 inch, I believe the 30 x 30 would fit perfectly.
Is this pad specifically designed for treeless saddles or can it be used under a saddle with a tree?
A shopper on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use this pad under 3 different round skirted saddles with trees. This pad really makes a difference in my horses comfort and my equine chriropractor really noticed a difference in my horses from last year
Does this pad have the same construction as the Impact Gel LDXT pad?
Pam C on Dec 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The ldxt looks relatively new I'm not sure that it would be the same but they look very similar if you already own an impact gel you know how great they are. I bought it in may and I will never own another pad again. I used to like professionals choice charmagne James but these are no comparison I have an appendix and a thoroughbred and this pad does wonders
