For the bigger saddle, the heftier rider or the more robust ride, this TCS (Total Comfort System) Full Monty Western Saddle Pad is two inches longer and has memory foam twice as thick as the Western All-Purpose pad.
Firm poly fiber sheets have been inserted alongside the protective memory foam inserts – these poly fiber sheets create internal stability, which serves to further equalize the load in high performance sports. These panels produce an inner equilibrium that even in very active rider movement or saddle stress situations, will allow a more complete utilization of the horse’s scapula. THE PERFECT FIT between horse and rider.
A result of popular demand, FULL MONTY has been developed to provide extra shock absorption and additional cushioning. Riders will still feel their horse’s movement through the close contact pad cutaway, but will now enjoy the additional protection of double memory thickness throughout the saddle bar contact with the horse.

Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pads are designed to promote even distribution of weight to the weight-bearing longissimus dorsi muscles along either side of the horse’s backbone, to keep weight off the horse’s spine, and to allow room for the horse’s scapula to move properly within the narrow confines of the saddle.
Our Four-Density Solution, plus the performance enhancement (PE) panel, combined with fine finishing details including genuine leather butt joints, nylon bindings and aeration perforations, provides the Ultimate in Saddle Pads, benefiting both horse and rider!
Shock absorbent: it’s not shocking!
- Saves the backs of both horse and rider
- Promotes blood circulation (the slow release memory of the open cell foam creates a gentle massaging action on the horse’s muscle structure)
Improves saddle fit: Fit for Excellence!
- Contracts at pressure points, fills gaps
- Enhances the saddle gullet (protecting the spine)
- Cutback allows wither relief
- More comfort for a saddle which fits perfectly
- Allows one saddle to be used on multiple horses
- Compensates for the changing horses back (different levels of conditioning, natural development over the season and development over the horse’s lifetime)
Thin: Thin is important!
- 4 different material densities creates a thinner pad with greater shock absorption than a pad twice as thick
- allows more room for free movement of the scapula (shoulder blade)
Reversible: Effective & Stylish
- New Zealand wool on one side, closed cell shock absorbing foam on the other
- Use either side against the horse; it’s your personal preference!
Patented Nitrex Closed-Cell Foam:Non-PVC foam that has low resilience and low penetration value, resulting in excellent shock absorption, insulation, cushioning and rebound (G-value energy return). Far superior to traditional foams.
- soft and lightweight
Open-Cell Memory Foam to enhance saddle fit:
- releases as the rider shifts weight to vary pressure and gently massage the muscles, promoting healthy circulation
- evenly distributes rider and saddle weight on the muscles
- contracts where the saddle is tight and remains full where the saddle has less contact.
New Zealand Merino Wool:100% Merino Wool carded and consolidated into a dense material. The resulting cloth is then heat-bonded to enhance dimensional stability, durability and abrasion resistance.
high directional stability to maintain shape
- wicks away moisture
- breathable and insulating
X-Ray Results Everyone Wants to SeeI shall try to keep this short, but when miracles happen it needs to be written. I have been in the horse industry since 1976. And I have witnessed many founders. And unfortunately none have ended well. I myself had the devastating news that due to a thyroid problem - my horse went into a full founder. When I saw the x- rays (pictured above) I saw that only .5 mm were left before the coffin bone came through the sole. I set up a euthanasia appointment, as I just could not do it that same day. Then I hit the internet to try and find something that may help. I came across the Cavallo Hoof Boots web page. I then called my local tack shop and they had the size I needed! Off I flew to the store! The horse was on heavy pain meds and anti-inflammatories and would not leave his stall, so when I got home and put the boots on, and then asked him to come out of his stall - HE WALKED OUT SOUND...my God, I fell to the floor and wept! I iced his feet four times a day and he was able to be turned out in a small 20' x 20' pen to keep his body functions working properly and keep his state of mind positive. Founder involves so many aspects - but hoof support is huge. Except for the icing, he never had the boots off - and he would lift his feet to have me put them on.
Chester Kicks Laminitis to the Curb"Cavallo boots have been a huge help for Chester! He’s currently coming towards the end of his recovery from laminitis but, in the earlier days, his boots were the difference between him being able to go for small walks (on vets instruction) and being stuck in his box. The comfort pads helped even further!" -Rachel Lawrenson, Facebook
In with the Old, out with the New!"New replacement boot vs. one that has seen 2 years of duty, literally saving my old boy's life as he is very uncomfortable without them. Thank you Cavallo!" - Michelle Cook, Facebook
NOT Following the Crowd pays off BIG!"In January 2018, after a 25-year hiatus, I unexpectedly returned to the horse world. To keep things short and sweet, I was intrigued by how much things had changed. Specifically, the holistic approach to horse care and going barefoot. After months of researching the topic, I decided that it was what I needed to do for the health of my horses. The farrier I was using was not able to help me accomplish my goal but, luckily, I was referred to one who was. I was told it could be up to one year before I’d see positive results. The great news is, I could see the positive results almost instantly. Of course, there were naysayers around the barn who gave me all the reasons why I should keep shoes on my horses, but I’m not one to follow the crowd. After researching several hoof boot companies, I made my choice to go with Cavallo because, not only is the information they provide top notch, the quality of their boots is the same. I recently took my mare down to our local lake with her Entry Level Cavallos. I was extremely happy with how well the boots performed. Not only did they provide protection from harsh rocks on the trail, they stayed on in deep sand and down a hill to get there. When I got her back to the trailer, I thought I’d have a big mess to clean up (especially with her excitedly pawing the water) but I was pleasantly impressed to find only a few small pebbles and a bit of sand. Thank you, Cavallo, for providing the solid information I needed to make the final decision going barefoot and for providing quality hoof boots to support that choice." - Shelly and Fancy, Arizona, USA.
Angie Palmer - A Fight Against Laminitis"I emailed you in 2017 to ask about hoof boots for my pony that had laminitis and you suggested the Trek boot. I thought I would tell you about the boots. I ordered them and put them on him as soon as arrived so could turn him out on his paradise track. They were a godsend and he still wears them now! He would not have been able to be turned out if it wasn't for them and the laminitis came back so been a long recovery. I never put him on box rest, I let him choose if he went out or stayed in and after getting boots, he never opted for staying in, lol! So, I would not hesitate to recommend to others how excellent and well made these boots are! They are fab for turnout and easy to put on and off, I take them off when he comes into stable on softer surface. They are still in very good condition and has worn for a year now, nearly every day! He's got them on today as it’s -5 this morning and the ground is rock hard! Thanks again for your advice to buy!" - Angie Palmer
