“Saddles are not a natural extension of a horse and even a good-fitting saddle can become painful or irritating in spite of the best-intentioned rider. Gel pads seems to squeeze the pressure ventrally (down) the back and because there is no gullet relief, can do more harm than good. My experience is that most horses develop a sore back at some time or other and because it seems to be an occupational hazard for a horse, we must do our utmost to protect the back from uneven weight distribution and painful stimuli. I have found that the superior fit and cushioning effect of Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pads have alleviated most of the painful back symptoms of the horses in my veterinary care and those that I am riding. I highly recommend Cavallo TSPs to anyone riding with a saddle.

Karen Badger, International Endurance Rider for Team Canada.

I represented Canada at the World Equestrian games in Germany in August of 2006. I had been sponsored by Cavallo with a Total Comfort System Endurance saddle pad and would not go with anything else now. My horse in the past has had a bit of back tenderness after a 100 mile race. Since I have been using the Cavallo pad he is very happy. He used to buck and hunch his back taking off on a ride and now he is so calm and smooth. I love that it also supports his shoulders and that the pad is very thin. The wool back on it is very therapeutic for the back. I would never go back to my other pads. I do encourage any endurance riders out there to try this pad.

I am passionate about the well-being of my horses. That is why I use Cavallo products. The Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pad has an innovative design that has eliminated any hindrance to my horse’s motion, yet still allows me to contact with him. I feel confident in knowing that my weight is distributed evenly across my horse’s back and he will continue to feel great run after run. Cavallo, thanks for making such great products!
