USD $169.95

SKU: 13 Category:

Product Description

The Cavallo Western Barrel/Endurance/Stock Saddle Pad is already shaped to your horse’s top line, allowing ample wither space. Memory foam ensures that pressure and weight are not continual, but yielding.  Excellent for all sports requiring lateral flexion. The maximum defense against back pain, yet still thin to maintain “feel”. Fits lie a glove.

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.

Length: 28.5″ (72 cm) Width: 34” (86 cm) tapering to 22” (56 cm)

Cavallo Performance Enhanced Saddle Pad System

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!

Cavallo Technology

 

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
  • water-absorption-free

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

  • Resilient
  • Durable
  • wicks away moisture
  • breathable and insulating

TEST_Pamela
 

I am enjoying SIMPLE Hoof Boots on both of my horses. Last week I was able to ride my Pamela Warmack and Jeffreygelding on a rocky trail that I have been avoiding for years because it was just too painful on his bare feet. We also rode through streams and I was pleased with how quickly the water drained out of the boots. It will be a pleasure to be able to explore all kinds of terrain without worrying about their feet. The boots slip on easily, attach quickly, stay in place on their feet, and clean up nicely. I took my gelding, Jeffrey, to Squaw Valley at Lake Tahoe and rode all last week. We could NOT have ridden on the rocky trails and seen the beautiful scenery if not for the Simple Boots on his unshod back feet. The SIMPLE Boots performed great and we were able to go out on the trails each day without a care!

Houston Mounted Patrol
The Houston Mounted Police Patrol Unit is making international headlines these days and being recognized as a front-runner in the natural horse movement.  The Unit went barefoot years ago and has recently made the decision to go bitless as well!

Metal Shoes and Bits Outlawed ‘Round these Parts!

At one time, the mounted unit herd was managed very traditionally, but the officers found they were constantly dealing with hoof issues and other ailments that that we have come to understand can be caused or exacerbated by use of metal shoes.  Metal shoes on asphalt refer concussive force which travels through the hoof and up the leg of the horse.  In 1984 Swiss Cavalry at the University of Zurich, Switzerland conducted research into the effect of metal shoeing.  Studies showed that the impact force a shod hoof receives on hard ground is 10-33 times that of an unshod hoof.  The vibration in the hoof from the shoe is approximately 800 hz.  (This level of vibration is high enough to DESTROY LIVING TISSUE).    The metal shoes were also restricting the natural flex function of the hoof when bearing weight, and therefore limiting much-needed blood supply to the hoof and lower leg. Due to these issues, the unit decided it couldn’t hurt to try something new, and in 2004, they experimented by having one horse go barefoot.  It was so successful that they now keep their entire herd (40 horses) barefoot!  They noticed the health of their horses improve greatly, and the vet bills were cut in HALF!  They also experienced better traction on slick surfaces, which helps both the officers and horses to feel safer when on patrol. Hard to argue with that!  AND the force has recently decided to go Bitless as well, with great success!
