Full Monty Pad
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Manufacturer: Cavallo
Model: Full Monty Pad
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I got this pad online from for 219.95 (usd)

Likes: I bought this pad for my growing 3 y/o. It seems like his back/withers are different every week and we have been having some minor fit issues from time to time as his back is changing. I was also having some "riding" issues such as not wanting to pick up the right leads when asked, not wanting to use his shoulders as freely as I know he can, etc. I love the vent holes in this pad! I'm not a huge a fan of any foam type pads as they hold a lot of heat but the holes in this DO work to vent the back. I ride fairly hard at times, working cows, reining,etc. The 1st time I used this pad I could tell a huge difference in him. He used his shoulders more freely, picked up the correct leads when asked and just felt...better..looser..Does that make Last Thurs. I put this pad to the test and was not only very pleased with it but a bit shocked to say the least. We do a cow work clinic every Thurs. and during this time we ride hard! Steam rolling off em, sweat dripping the end of my ride when I pulled my saddle off my steaming soaked horse his back was damp but not wet...Not dry in that bad way but damp dry...The only way that could happen is if that pad is getting some MAJOR airflow under it. I love that! This tells me that when its 80 outside this summer my horses back will not be cooking under this pad! The Memory foam stuff in it is very nice and doesn't flatten out to nothing like a pressure point in a gel/air pad can, with the air holes it doesn't heat up and hold heat like the gel/air pads, it can be ridden on either side of the pad( wool side or black side) towards the horse. At this time I really like this pad. I will update this again after having had it for awhile as to how it holds up under use, etc.

Dislikes: Nothing at this time.

Quality: Very well made, Looks like it will hold up for a long time with proper care. ( Do not leave foam pads in hot cars/trailers/barns, it ruins them fast!
