Acavallo Seat Savers
Acavallo® is a leading equestrian brand synonymous with comfort and innovation. Based in Italy, Acavallo® was founded in 2003 by Mauro Benetti and Monica Speroni. The designs brought to market by Acavallo® incorporate advanced technologies, including the use of therapeutic gel to provide enhanced shock absorption. Their elite range – incorporating gel pads, tendon boots and seat savers – is used by professional and everyday riders alike.
Acavallo Gel Horse Boots
Acavallo® Therapeutic Gel is the most advanced of its type available in the equestrian marketplace today. The gel used in ACavallo products is the most advanced design found in the equestrian market, it is flexible, pliable, and ultra-soft making it an excellent option for Gel Horse Boots. Acavallo® describes their flagship product as follows, “Extremely lightweight, the Acavallo soft gel pad can be used directly on the horse’s back. Acavallo gel has a remarkable ability to absorb shocks, is suitable for any type of saddle and fits perfectly to the horse’s back. The unique feature of Acavallo gel is that it is sticky, which is the reason why all riders love it. After washing, it gets sticky again, provided that the instructions are followed. It allows the skin to breathe while maintaining contact with the saddle, thanks to an excellent shock-absorbing non-slip layer. A thoroughly elastic stretch product, it can be cut to the desired shape (riders often cut it off half an inch shorter so that it is not visible under the saddle). It prevents any unwanted movement of the saddle, backwards, forwards, and sidewards. A real asset if the saddles rotate on the ‘rounder’ horses & ponies. Skidproof, antibacterial, non-toxic, hypo allergenic, non-absorbent of fluids, smell and bacteria. Machine-washable at 30 degrees or by simply running under water using mild soap.”
As well as their therapeutic gel, other materials used by Acavallo® include:
Acavallo Sheepskin Pads
“Sheepskin will not give off an electrical charge. Synthetic seat covers are a 100% insulator of electrical energy. All natural sheepskin is a partial insulator providing you an undisturbed release of static electricity created by the natural friction of your body and the environment. Sheepskin is able to absorb sweat immediately, seven times faster than synthetics. Machine-washable (30 degrees) or by hand simply using water.”
* Memory Foam
“This material is characterized by slow recovery after compression. Its ability to closely contour to shapes allows surface pressure to be distributed over a wide area. Other characteristics include its ability to dampen vibration as well as absorb shocks. This product also reacts to body temperature. The pad can be machine washed (30 degrees) or by hand in a bucket of water with little detergent.”
* Acavallo® Piuma
“’Piuma’ is Italian and means ‘feather’ (very light and soft). This innovative material is made of a new featherlight thermoplastic, offering horse and rider a really unique set of benefits, i.e. a low-profile but highly effective padding and protection of the horse’s back, low weight and bulk under the saddle, a sophisticated ventilation and air-supply system.”
Acavallo® is supported by many of the world’s top riders, including Charlotte Dujardin. Here’s what she had to say about using Acavallo® products for her amazing Olympic-winning equine partner Valegro: “Valegro particularly enjoys the therapeutic gel pads under his saddle and the beautiful lambskin adds that special touch, as well as a super soft shock absorbing layer. I wouldn’t be without them!”
