Cavallo’s Enhanced Protection Gel Pad gives your horse an extra layer of comfort only when he needs it.

Cavallo Gel Pads are made from a technically advanced and specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer that is designed to provide your horse with temporary extra protection and increased comfort when making the transition from metal shoes to barefoot, while riding on very aggressive terrain or longer distances or for rehabilitation during an injury.  Due to the pliable nature of gel, which moves into the sole cavity – blood flow and circulation is stimulated. This can speed up the healing process and increase hoof health.

*As they are designed for temporary use, when being used for regular riding they can wear out more quickly than traditional pads and may need to be replaced from time to time.

Testimonials

Here is a testimonial I recently received from a Cavallo customer in Ireland. It was so nicely written that I couldn't help but share it with the Cavallo Community...as it's always a great joy to hear of an older horse finding comfort again.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did:

So I bought this new horse; he may as well have been made of gold. He was fantastic, a real gentleman, a confidence-giver and a sweetheart. The only thing was, he was old and was physically feeling the effects of a hard life of hunting. Previous bad saddle fitting had left extensive muscle atrophy and his withers stuck up like the sail of a ship.

Horse Hoof Boots

I wondered how on earth I was going to find a saddle and pad to work comfortably for him? I tried a few variations but never felt he really moved well under them. Finally, after much research, I settled on a Cavallo English Raised Wither Saddle Pad. I waited with anticipation for the courier to arrive, and when it did I was still unsure about my purchase.

Against better advice, I initially used the pad with a numnah underneath and found it was ‘OK’. After a couple of weeks of still wondering about my horse's comfort, I braved it and threw off the numnah. I placed the lovely New Zealand wool against his back and settled my saddle directly on top. Within ten minutes of riding I felt the difference in my horse. He responded better to my aids and I could feel him move more freely underneath me.

I follow the sport of TREC which involves trail riding and obstacle challenges. This requires my horse to be completely comfortable on the long rides whilst being supple and steady through the courses. He no longer got tired quickly and our scores increased with every competition we entered.

Thank you Cavallo, for making such a wonderful pad (and for the free session with Monty Robert's Equus University!). I still love to watch my fellow’s shoulders move every time we ride, unrestrained and relaxed.

Warm Words from Ireland to Cavallo

I recently ordered a pair of Simple boots for my Australian Stockhorse stallion. Past injury has resulted in excessive heel growth (and very little toe growth) on one front foot - which causes him to move unevenly. It also means that he has more round or square feet, rather than elongated. I did a lot of research into the various types of boots available to find one that would fit his type of hooves. Correcting this is an uphill battle as we have very hard ground and he constantly wears his toes - more on the one side. The Cavallo boots fit beautifully and now I have a horse that moves so evenly - it was like riding a completely different horse!

Thanks Cavallo!
