Favorite Half Pads

Favorite Half Pads

1. EquiFit T-Foam Non-Slip Contour Pad – equifit.net
2. Ultra ThinLine Contour Pad – thinlineglobal.com
3. Jump Original Ogilvy Memory Foam HalfPad – ogilvyequestrian.com

The EquiFit theraputic pad uses the T-Foam memory foam that is always so comfortable for horses. This pad maximizes support, disperses pressure points, absorbs shock, and helps prevent back soreness. I have always loved the EquiFit brand and though I have never used this pad, I have always wanted to try it.

The ThinLine pad has always been a favorite for many. It is great for horses that don’t need a lot of padding underneath the saddle. It flexes and moves with your horse, has great shock absorption, and offers closer contact between horse and rider

The Ogilvy pad is somewhat similar to the EquiFit one although there are a few different features. This pad uses anti-slip, moisture-wicking materials. It has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. It also uses a memory foam that gives great shock absorption. This is another product that I have been dying to try on my horse.

Shoplifter

Shoplifter, aka Hrafnhildur Arnardottir is an artist from Iceland who works and explores the use and symbolic nature of hair. Vanity in a comical, silly, romantic, beautiful way is the main theme of her art. Her artwork makes me think and sheds light on how we use our hair as an essential feature to decorate and beautify ourselves, as well as our horses and pets (though they could care less about it).

Stunningly fresh, very simple and functional work by Los Angeles based furniture designer/maker Tanya Aguiñiga. She grew up in Mexico and her designs reflect a celebration of both cultures in a very smart modern style.
I would love, love, love to pack any of these designs and head to the horse show:

Sakir Gökçebag

These photo projects by Turkish artist Sakir Gökçebag are fantastic! He skillfully arranges and manipulates fruit into these visually dynamic geometric shapes and patterns. My favorite are his apple pieces but his other fruits are equally great. His other works include installations using umbrellas, toilet paper, shoes and various other materials. My horse and I would love to go to one of his exhibits.

Sleepypod

These products are sleek and modern. Their cool variety of carriers for dogs and cats are safety tested and approved. My favorite is the Sleepypod because it can be used as a super comfy bed (which my little nugget would love) or a carrying bag. And I would totally get the Sidekick for my bike if my dog wasn’t so crazy and energetic (she would never sit still long enough to use it).

Hand painted figurines by The Good Machinery

Admiring Italy based The Good Machinery‘s Strange Planet series of imaginatively hand painted animal figurines – looking at the little treasures simply cheer and brighten my day.
The designs play with shapes and colors including polka dots, neon, golden, striped and my favorite, the black ombré horse with a bright neon pink muzzle… or maybe the pink horse with the golden legs?

Thomaspaul Home

I am in love with the equestrian decor from Thomaspaul! He started his brand in the 90s with neck wear accessories that soon evolved into a home collection in 2001. His company now covers all aspects of the home. The warm, unique patterns of the collection would look great in any home. I’m definitely saving a spot for them!
