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

- Enhances the saddle gullet (protecting the spine)
- Cutback allows wither relief

A Neighbor Cares Enough to Save HimI was finally able to convince his owners to sell him and I loaded him on my trailer 10 seconds after they agreed! I drove him the hour and a half to my vet. He was examined and X-rayed. It turns out the barbed wire had damaged his pastern joint. Because he was left without any medical care, he had developed arthritis. The large hard lump on his pastern had calcified into bone and it will always be there. The prognosis wasn't great. We just didn't know if he'd ever be sound enough to ride, or even sound enough to be a "pasture puff".
A Wise Farrier Steps In...[caption id="attachment_21886" align="alignleft" width="372"] Ashley Peake and her Beloved Horse, Gunner[/caption] So I began a course of injections that had little effect. He was then put on another medication and the improvement was rapid and dramatic. By the third day he was galloping! It was amazing to watch him gallop across the field after seeing him struggle to walk for 8 months. We slowly began riding. But if we encountered any kind of rocks at all he immediately went lame. Pavement was another trouble area for him. My first inclination was to shoe him, but bless my farrier's heart for caring more about the horse than his pocketbook. He suggested that I try hoof boots first, as he believed the steel shoes would irritate his arthritis and do more harm than good. So we searched and searched and I ordered a pair of Cavallos.
Cavallos to the Rescue!The day they arrived I raced out to try them on him and they fit perfectly. We headed out for a ride and he cruised over pavement and the rockiest terrain like it was nothing! He was like a brand new horse. He's now had his Cavallos for a year and he never goes out on the trail without them. I'm going to order another pair so he has a backup. And during the winter when the ground gets very hard, he wears his boots during turnout and they keep him comfortable and provide better traction. Cavallo boots gave my horse a second chance at doing what he loves to do - go riding.
Recommended by THIS Horse OwnerI recommend them to everyone and most of my friends have switched to Cavallo Boots for their horses after seeing what they've done for mine. They're easy to put on and take off, and I've never had problems with rubs or coming off during a ride. Even in rough terrain and deep mud the boots stay put. I also use the Cavallo Pastern Wraps, I love how they kind of mold to the horses heel bulbs and pastern to provide an exact fit. They keep them comfortable and protected from any potential cuts or scrapes. As long as I have horses I will have Cavallo Boots! Thank you for making such an amazing product for our beloved horses! - Ashley Peake
