About Celliant®

Celliant is made of a patented blend of thermo-reactive minerals infused into the core of fiber which is used to create all types of textiles and fabrics so it does not wash or wear out.

Celliant is based on three fundamental scientific principles: Your body emits heat; certain naturally-occurring minerals absorb heat and emit far infrared energy (IR); and IR is a vasodilator that delivers health benefits by increasing blood flow to tissue and muscles throughout the body, which delivers vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells.

Products made with Celliant-treated textiles and fabrics absorb and convert body heat, naturally emitted by all living things, in the form of far infrared energy (IR). This energy is recycled back into skin and tissue in a safe, natural way, helping to rebuild and recharge the human body after physical activity and while you sleep.

Celliant is shown to increase tissue oxygenation by eight percent , which helps the body:
– Recover faster from physical activity
– Increase energy, endurance, stamina and performance
– Promote restful sleep and increased comfort

Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body. All Draper Therapies products are safe to use continually and without build up times.

The FDA has determined that Celliant products are medical devices as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and are general wellness products. As such, products containing Celliant:

Increase Energy – This energy penetrates the muscle and tissue to promote a temporary increase in local blood flow

5 reviews for Draper Equine Therapy® Dressage Saddle Pads

  1. Madeline Backus

    These saddle pads are great! I’ve had mine for 6 years, and it still comes out of the washing machine perfectly white. My horses benefit greatly from the lovely soft celliant underneath, and they’d always stayed in place.

  2. Danielle

    I ordered this pad for my mare with a tight back and have been really happy with it. She is noticeably more supple, and we get better extended work as a result of her being more through in her back. The pad also washed really well. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because the shape is more like an all purpose pad than a dressage pad. I have a 17” saddle with standard flap, which should work with the size large pad. When tacked up, there is curved excess pad in front of the saddle like what you’d see on an AP pad, almost no pad behind the saddle or passed the bottom of my saddle flap. My trainer also commented that it looks like an AP pad.

      Hi Danielle,
      thank you for the feedback! Our XL sized pads are the traditional dressage pad size (the large size tends to fit smaller horses, cob sizes, and some ponies). If there’s anything our customer service team can do to help, please fell free to reach out to them – info(at)

    These pads last forever! Incredibly durable even under the most rugged conditions. Not to mention you can really see the benefits of Celliant – my horse has kissing a pine and never wears any other kind of pad. Well worth the cost. I use the XL dsg for my 17.5” dsg saddle and the AP fits my (hard to fit) 18.5” jump perfectly,

    Ive been using these saddle pads since 2007. I believe in them so much that I use them under my team pads during world championships. Even in the heat and humidity of Hong Kong olympics. #innovation

    My go-to saddle pad. I’ve been super impressed with how well these pads have held up to years of regular use and always seem to come out new in the wash. My horse definitely still prefers these over other saddle pads.
    (I use XL pads with a 19” saddle).
