The Cavallo Tucker Round Pad is specially coordinated to Tucker Saddle Styles: Endurance Trail (round skirt), High Plains (round skirt), Cheyenne Frontier (round skirt), Montreal Royal Trooper, and Buffalo (round skirt).
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.
This saddle pad uses the same memory foam technology you already know and love to increase symmetry in your saddle fit, absorb shock and provide a more pleasant riding experience for both horse and rider.
Length: 27” (69 cm)
Width: 16” (41 cm) tapering to 8.5” (22 cm)
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!
The Cavallo Tucker Round Saddle Pad is suitable for the following Tucker Saddle Styles – Endurance Trail (round skirt), High Plains (round skirt), Cheyenne Frontier (round skirt), Montreal Royal Trooper, Buffalo (round skirt). . The unique Tri-Density Solution arrests concussion within the pad. The high integrity foam remains thin to provide more room for your horse to move freely. Provides cushion and support for the muscular system where reflex centers lie.
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!
I have been using Simple boots for three years. I have two horses, St. Gertrude (aka Sophie) a 20 year old Morgan pony mare, and Side Hill Ranger, a 8 year old 16 hand Morgan gelding. Both wear Simple Boots in a variety of situations. We go on picnic drives for training. The first set that I used on Ranger still show little or no wear. Neither horse's gaits and their stamina is not affected by Simple boots. Putting them on is indeed simple, and they stay on. I use regular shoes for part of the year. The rest of the time, it is simply Simple Boots. Thank you Cavallo for such a great product.

This is how it all started.A few weeks ago, we received a request from Hawaii.. Aloha Carole
My name is Lori and I work for the Mayor of Honolulu. The May or has been riding my horses in various parades and the rule the parades have is that every horse needs to be shod. It's so frustrating to deal with these archaic views and policies. They are stating that the heat of the asphalt is detrimental to the hooves.
This was not the first time this issue has come across to us at Cavallo. Of course there is the consideration of significant heat conduction and transference from metal shoes on asphalt. Have they ever seen the sparks fly when metal hits that surface or even rocks on the trail at a speed?
What about the benefits of protection that our Cavallo soles would provide?
There are not studies available, but I can tell you from experience our Cavallo soles do not transfer as much heat as metal. And if you 'compare apples to apples', the benefits of a properly functioning hoof that bears weight and encourages blood circulation is far superior to what happens to a shod horse moving on a hard surface. Here we do have studies! The University of Zurich in Switzerland conducted a study determining that 800 Hz frequency travels up the shod horses’ structure at a trot on asphalt. This amount is enough to kill live tissue, both within the hoof itself and further up the horse’s structure.
Obviously I offered The Mayor some boots. And here’s the response from Lori below:Our Aloha Festivals 70th Annual Parade was this weekend and the Mayor of Honolulu rode my horse, Misty. As I mentioned before, she has never been shod before so boots were being allowed as a compromise. Your boots worked absolutely perf ectly!! They all stayed in place and did not rub her at all. They actually blended in perfectly and looked so natural. I thank you very much for your support and WONDERFUL boots!! Mahalo, Lori Kahikina All’s well that ends well.
