  • Contoured to the shape of the horse

Why replace lead weights?

Prevents injuries to horses:

Lead weights are often "ill-fitted" under a race saddle that is also weighted to capacity.  The lead weights focus the force of the race weight onto the horse's withers and back.  Lead weights can restrict shoulder movement, produce a biased "way of going," and cause injury to the muscles in direct contact with the weights. Such problems can cause horses to lose races, become injured, or both.

Reduces health hazards to workers: 

Lead has long been established as a highly toxic substance. Exposure to lead can produce a wide range of adverse health effects. 

BEST PADô Race Weight pads are the solution to replace lead weights.  

 

 What weights are available?

BEST PADô Race Weight pads are available from 1 to 25 pounds; the padís weight is embossed in white on the black surface.  BEST PAD Race Weight pads are also available in kilogram sizes; please see our International Products for more information.

 Can Race Weight Pads be personalized?

Each BEST PADô is imprinted with our telephone number and web address.  Other optional features for all BEST PADô products include deluxe white lettering or raised black lettering to personalize and identify your pads. Use your name or initials or your horse's name. Deluxe White lettering (1" height)--$2.50/letter  Raised Black lettering--$1.50/letter.

Special logos for stable and association names are available upon request.
