The Cavallo English Wedge Saddle Pad absorbs concussion, reduces impact and lifts the weight off the spine and rib cage. All this with a gradual rise toward the back. Favored by Jumpers and those who wish to move forward with the horse.
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.
*If you need more lift than this, saddle fit is a consideration
Length: 23″ (58 cm) Width: 22” (56 cm) tapering to 15 ” (38 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 with 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 English Wedge Saddle Pad is perfect for the saddle that is tipping backwards. The thicker foam at the rear of the saddle helps lift the back up and balance the saddle. The unique Four-Density Solution plus the performance enhancement (PE)panel 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. Lightweight.
Shock absorbent: it’s not shocking!
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
This is to say thank you.
Today Jenny - who helps many of you with her kind knowledge at our Cavallo office, sent me a compilation of recent posts our customers have made on our Facebook page. As I read through the heartfelt messages about how Cavallos have helped their horses, giant globules of tears began plopping onto my lap. WOW! What you all do and how you all love your horses is the transformational element that is so big, so honest and so devoted it could be sowing the seeds of peace on the planet. Honestly! It’s a huge statement. But you go ahead and read the posts below and see what you think:
3 Amigos Equine Rescue, Texas - Re: Pickles Recovery "Hello humans! I just need to say, "I love my Cavallo Hoof Boots, and I love you all". It was pretty hard for me to walk for a while. I feel like a new horse now that I am out of the kill pen. I've had so much love and attention, life sure is good. Doc came and scratched my ears yesterday. I like him, he is nice. He said my feet show signs of new growth in the right places. I'm trying, since you all aren't giving up on me. It was dark there for a little while last month, I had all but given up. I thought my fate was sealed. I didn’t really believe it at first, when that hand touched my face softly and said "I promise you are forever safe now" that I was on the RIGHT trailer. Thanks to the right trailer being there at the right time for me. Thanks to all of you for your support, encouragement, and prayers. I see a happy future ahead for me now. The humans keep saying, one day I'll have a family of my own, a kid again. Isn’t that exciting? I'll have my very own kid again!!!! That makes me so happy. I wonder if it'll be a boy or a girl? Will I have braided mane and bows with my little princess? Will I have a rough & tumble buddy to rope a dummy off of? Ill just dream about him or her until I get all better, and my kid finds me. I really love kids you know!! I hope you all have a wonderful day." With love, Pickles
Brenna Eldredge and Dakota – Facebook Post: February 13, 2018“I could not be happier with my decision to transition my horse to barefoot and choosing Cavallo for his hoof protection. I always thought that my horse just had “bad feet” and that he would always be lame barefoot until I realized that I was enabling that dependency. By allowing his feet to adapt back to the way they were naturally intended, his feet have become strong and he now seems perfectly comfortable barefoot. With the added weight of a rider on rough terrain, I invested in my first pair of Cavallo boots. I went with the Trek boots and they fit him perfectly. I am able to do anything that I could do in metal shoes and I no longer have to stress over him losing a metal shoe and damaging his hoof wall when removed. The Cavallo boots provide him greater shock absorbency when riding on hard ground and so far, whether it be on trails or in the arena, he seems extremely comfortable in his boots. I do a variety of riding including trails, gaming and drill and am excited to get into the gaming season to truly put my boots to the test. I believe that, in horsemanship, you have to pick methods that make the most sense to you and for me - that is the naturality of barefoot and the protection of the Cavallo boots.” - Brenna
Mustang Maddy (Madeleine Shambault) Thank you so much for the boots. I got them yesterday and have already used them twice. I think the sizing was good and no limping or tripping!! There was quite the crowd watching him try his boots for the first time at the barn—as they were all expecting Floyd to have a reaction—his reaction? A sigh. Lol. He looked a little sad when I took them off this morning. Haha. He’s adorbs. Happy Floyd - Mustang Maddy
Meredith Andrew - Facebook Post: May 16, 2018"I LOVE Cavallo hoof boots. I use the Trek Boots in a Slim sole for my mule. They work great on my mule! I have tired several different brands and the Cavallo Slim fit Trek boots are the only ones that fit right AND stay on. I have never had one come off EVER, not even in very deep mud. They last for years and are well worth the investment. I have also never had them rub my mule at all."
Sam Davies, Internet Horse Showing, UK - Facebook Post"I would also like to say that I have the Cavallo simple boots for my Section A Welsh Pony, who is laminitic. The boots have been a life saver! I always recommend the Cavallo range to people, especially those with laminitic horses."
Kathy Deaton and Tucker - Facebook Post: July 16, 2018"Due to having two surgeries and some other medical issues, this is the first time I've been on my sweet POA Tucker in 15 months! We had to try out our new green Treks and we loved them!!! We only rode around the place for a short time, but what a feeling!!!!" 💚
Lisa Westfall – Facebook"My mare has worn Cavallo Simple Boots for the past three years. My horse and I are happy customers! I decided to buy a pair of the Trek boots recently. I really like these Trek boots. They are light but super sturdy and my horse moves so well in them. And they are super easy to put on and take off. I totally recommend them! This is my mare wearing her Cavallo Trek boots on a trail ride yesterday in the mountains of New Mexico."
Kevin Rasmussen, Turner, Oregon, Facebook“The barn where we are at has a cement floor in the wash bay. While bathing our horse this afternoon she slipped on the wet floor and began to panic. Once everyone was calmed down, we put her Cavallo boots on. No more slipping. They make great "shower shoes."
Jim Watson, Mississauga Ontario – FacebookThis is Daisy. When we got her, her previous owner told us she had foundered after giving birth, and she has had sore feet ever since. We’ve been trying to figure out what would help her, so we bought the Trek boots. Today is her first day wearing them and we noticed a difference right off the bat!
Thanks for reading - wishing you many happy miles in the saddle!
This is to say Thank You.
