Cavallo All Purpose English Pad
Features 3 layers: shock-absorbing, closed-cell, high-density foam, slow-release open-cell memory foam, and 100% New Zealand Merino Wool. The 3 material densities create a thinner pad with greater shock absorption than a pad twice as thick. Allows more room for free movement of the scapula. Medical memory foam on either side of the spine enhances the function of the saddle gullet, allowing the horse a place to put his backbone and use his structure properly. Shock-absorbing memory foam will provide a gentle massaging action as it bounds back in anticipation of the next impact. Seat bone cues are easily transmitted for disciplines from Dressage to Jumping. Lightweight – weighs only 1 lb!
This Cavallo Total Comfort System saddle pad is 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.
Cavallo's Tri-Density Solution, combined with fine finishing details including genuine leather butt joints, nylon bindings and aeration perforations, provides the ultimate in saddle pads – benefitting both horse and rider. Tri-Density Solution absorbs shock and concussion from both horse and rider – saving both backs. Improves saddle fit. Features firm poly fiber sheets inserted alongside the protective memory foam to provide the perfect fit between horse and rider. Contracts at pressure points and fills gaps. Enhances the saddle gullet (protecting spine). Cutback allows wither relief. Allows one saddle to be used on multiple horses and compensates for changes in a horse's back over its lifetime.
Reversible, effective and stylish – New Zealand wool on one side, closed cell shock absorbing foam on the other. Use either side against horse.
Far superior to traditional foams, Cavallo's patented Nitrex Closed-Cell foam is non-PVC foam that has low resilience and low penetration value, resulting in excellent shock absorption, insulation, cushioning and rebound. Foam is soft and lightweight, and water-absorption-free. Open-cell memory foam enhances saddle fit by releasing as rider shifts weight to vary pressure and gently massage muscles, promoting healthy circulation. Evenly distributes rider and saddle weight on muscles.
