Traditional style wool -and synthetic- flocked panels can bunch up, causing
hot spots and uneven pressure. As time goes by, the shifting requires constant
adjustments and re-flocking.
AMS® System has been designed to allow a perfect union between horse
and rider. This system eliminates hot spots by dispersing any pressure variances
of the flocking within the panels, thanks to the exclusive pressure-stabilizing
The neoprene provides a soft, consistent and very close contacting layer to
support the rider’s weight on the back of the horse.
This layer will absorb impacts and distribute pressure evenly for maximum
comfort and freedom of movement for your horse.
Saddles with AMS® panels can be re-flocked and fitted to your horse, just like
traditional wool-flocked panels.
• A SOFT and CONSISTENT panel making your horse
• SHOCK ABSORBING properties from neoprene layer
distributes pressure EVENLY across the horses back.
In order to compare the benefits of the AMS® panels,
thermographies were carried out on the horse´s back,
in a saddle with standard panels and another with AMS®
after 30 minutes of identical exercises*.
Diagram 1A shows clearly the unevenly on the pressure
surface on a traditional panel due for the discontinuity of
the white colour which shows a greater temperature.
In the meantime the temperature on the horse´s back
where this panel was used, shows a substantial increase and
unevenly (diag. 1B). The stabilisation took up to three hours
While for the AMS® panel (diag. 2A) the weight distribution
without pressure points, it was uniform.And the same thing
is proved on the horse´s back (diag 2B). It took an hour in
The distribution of the weight of the AMS® System
is more physiological, allowing a very adequate
decomposition of the pressures on the horse´s back.
