Thicker at the front and gradually tapering to the rear, the Cavallo Raised Wither Saddle Pad lifts the saddle at the wither to re-establish balance and correct position. The pad's design allows skeletal relief along the gullet and maintains the benefits of shock absorption, weight distribution, and improved saddle fit comfort. 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.
