Your Horses Back May Not Be the Same Next Month
A saddle is a static object, but your horse is a living, dynamic creature. Even slight changes throughout the year in your horse's weight have a significant impact on the fit of the saddle. And, naturally, the saddle fit in turn significantly impacts your horse's experience.
That's just common sense, of course. But many riders forget the fact that a horse normally undergoes even slight alterations in weight and posture throught the seasons and throughout his or her life. And yet we continue to put the same old saddle on her back, year in and year out.
That's what saddle pads are for, right? Right. But most saddle pads under-perform when it comes to a customized and continually changing fit. There is a solution that addresses all the changes that come with new seasons, age, injuries and habits. The Cavallo Therapeutic Saddle Pads use memory foam to precisely contour your horse's back.
These saddle pads are known as the TOTAL COMFORT SYSTEM.
Specifically engineered to contract and expand where needed, these Therapeutic Saddle Pads mold for a precise fit between the back and the saddle for each and every ride. They even compensate for YOUR weight and posture.
The combination of 3 technically advanced lightweight foams create a system that absorbs shock and eases saddle fit discrepancies.
All saddles, even custom-made ones, have flaws. Therapeutic Saddle Pads contract at the inevitable pressure points and expand to fill any gaps. Also, undue pressure is often exerted onto your horse's spine. That's where the special gullet comes in. Each Therapeutic Saddle Pad is designed to relieve weight and pressure on the spine with the gullet.
Overall, the Total Comfort System allows more comfort for a saddle that may not be a perfect fit. They also allow riders to use one saddle on a number of horses.

Carole Herder is the president of Cavallo Horse & Rider, Inc. Cavallo offers a line of exeptional equine products, including Multi-purpose Horse Boots, Therapeutic Saddle Oads, Leg Protectors and more. Check us out at http://www.cavallo-inc.com
