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.
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.
