The Cavallo English Wedge Saddle Pad absorbs concussion, reduces impact, and lifts the weight off the spine and rib cage. All this with 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 for more complete utilization of the horse's scapula. This saddle pad offers a great fit between horse and rider. When using this pad, take care not to tilt the saddle too far back on the loins.
