Description

The Cavallo Western Built-Up Saddle Pad provides additional padding over the wither area that will adjust the position of a saddle that tips. It is used to balance a saddle that would otherwise incline to the fore. The unique Four-Density Solution arrests concussion within the pad. The high integrity foam remains thin to provide more room for your horse to move freely.

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.

* When using this pad, take care not to tilt the saddle too far back on the loins.

Length: 30” (76 cm) Width: 32 ” (81 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

Testimonials

This one really touches my heart because it is not only about the little mini horse, but it's about the service these kids are passionate to provide and the people who will be helped along the way.

Hope Reins rescues horses from all sorts of situations and these horses become part of the free programs aimed at helping people connect with the horses. Often people have their own “hurts” and working with the horses helps humans to find hope and healing. Hope Reins is entirely run by volunteers and relies on donations in order to provide the service it does to horse and human alike. When Pippa was rejected by her mother at birth the stress caused her to develop laminitis, a very painful condition where the hoof wall and the inside hoof capsule (which are normally glued together with stuff called laminae) seperate. The folks at Hope Reins had hoped to find some boots to help Pippa walk more comfortably. When Cavallo Cute Little Boots were fitted to Pippa's front and hind hooves she quickly realized that the boots felt good, REALLY GOOD! Now Pippa is able to go out on the town! With the complete hoof protection provided by her Cavallo CLB’s they can walk her and train her to be in crowds and in different situations.

Hope Reins' goal is for Pippa to go into parades, as well as visit schools and nursing homes to make people’s day brighter, to bring them happiness and also to educate people on how amazing horse are at helping heal hurting human hearts.

Hope For Pippa

Gabriella Lynn - Western Kentucky university horse hoof boot student researcher

Biggest Congratulations to Gabriella Lynn!

The Western Kentucky University (WKU) Equine Science Department recently released study results confirming Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots benefit horses. Now, the student researcher responsible for the study, Gabriella Lynn is in the spotlight again. She has been awarded a scholarship to London’s Royal Veterinary College (RVC).  There, Lynn will pursue a joint undergraduate and veterinary degree. The RVC was ranked number one in the world for veterinary sciences by QS World University Rankings in 2019. A completed degree from the RVC will enable Lynn to practice veterinary medicine anywhere in in North America and Europe.

A Contributor to Equine Wellness

A current WKU student, Lynn is graduating from WKU’s Gatton Academy. Only one full scholarship is awarded per year by the RVC. Lynn focuses on equine comfort, well-being, and health as an important motivator for her research projects. Through her recent studies and research findings, Lynn has become a significant contributor to the improvement of equine health and wellness.

Looking at Hoof Boots from a Scientific Perspective

Western Kentucky University Hoof Boot Study - Cavallo (2)Lynn authored an independent WKU study in 2019. This hoof boot study led to the conclusion that Cavallo Hoof Boots benefit horses. It was carried out by Lynn and WKU Assistant Professor, Dr. Jennifer Gill, through the Western Kentucky University Equine Science Department. The first study of its kind, it compared hoof boots to traditional metal shoes. Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots were featured as the study subject—and results confirmed that Cavallo Hoof Boots benefit horses by providing comfort, protection and minimizing potential hoof damage. The findings? Hoof boots significantly reduce pressure on the hoof. This study focused on surface area, force, and pressure exerted on horse’s hooves while traveling on the hard surface of asphalt. The scientists used FujiFilm Prescale imaging to determine the amount of pressure felt in the horse’s hooves. This film procedure allowed the scientists to see dynamic pressure through color mapping.

Best Wishes to Gabriella

Cavallo wishes Lynn all the best and everyone at Cavallo is looking forward to hearing about Lynn’s future accomplishments in the equine world!
