Covers for the VIP™ Original Pad Now Available

The revolutionary VIP™ Original Half Pad now has a cover available to instantly change the look to match a saddle or saddle pad. VIP Pad owners can now easily match their half pad to their saddle or saddle pad with the soft, washable brushed cotton cover. Available in either black or white, the covers are available to fit both large and medium sized VIP Pads.

Released into the US market at the end of 2020, the VIP™ Original Pad is a half-pad made with a unique, proprietary polymer that is considered the universal gold-standard in human medical use for pressure protection. The material maintains shape under prolonged compression, has high tensile strength, and does not leak or bottom out under pressure. This polymer has been shown to draw and disperse heat, too. In saddle pad form, VEteq effectively adds a thin layer of fat to the horse’s back, helping to regulate temperature and offer better cushioning under the saddle, while also reducing impact and friction.

The VIP Pad’s cushioning technology alleviates pressure points while evenly distributing weight. “With its excellent ‘second skin’ like feel and use of proven materials, the VIP has become a super additional piece of kit to use,” says Sam Griffiths, member of the 2016 Australian Olympics Team. “The all-important close contact connection I have between my saddle and the horse is not compromised in any way.”

With four different sizes available, the VIP Pad can be paired with both English and Western saddles to enhance horse and rider comfort.  Learn more at
