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.
