Cavallin Mandriana Quaddro BBP

The Cavallin line of bareback pads are nothing short of amazing. For those who are familiar with Christ BBPs, this has similar features, but adds a more substantial cantle and an adjustable stirrup ring. Rider stability is excellent and rather than having to reach for a one-size-fits-all stirrup position, it's right there when you need it. There are also panel inserts to protect the spine. The Mandriana Quaddro is made with gorgeous long fiber sheepskins and has a square flap. The bottom wool layer can be removed for easy cleaning. I've tested this BBP with a pressure sensor pad and while it's still recommended as a BBP, not meant for constant stirrup use, the weight distribution is excellent even with light stirrup use.

Panels or Western Skirt

Panels for Ghost saddles - and can work for other saddles with loop-side velcro underneath. Price is for a pair of panels or the complete western skirt with integrated panels.
New option - XL velcro opening panels, great for those really wide horses, but may also provide more stability for slab sided horses. (NOT available - or needed - with Thick insert option) Panels for 16" seat run just over 20", for 17" seat is about 21", for 18" is a bit over 22". Important - the XL panels are 7" wide so you need to make sure your pad structure supports that! See more details below.

Pommel bolster

Can affect the rider's pelvis tilt, refines the twist, and slightly deepens the seat. It goes under the front of the seat, with the wide side toward the pommel and the pointy side toward the rider. It can be moved forward/back for a greater effect.
Riders who have a low pelvic floor may not like the bolster. For those who are looking at the product to tilt the pelvis, one of the other rider balancing aids will have a great effect without discomfort.
To install, release the velcro under the front center of the seat, then tug the seat back over the front dees. Place the bolster and press the seat back into position, making sure all is still symmetrical. Replace the front velcro tab and push the seat back over the front dees. This last part can be difficult, especially when the saddle is new - to make it easier, pull some twine or a shoelace through the dee to give you more leverage.

Panel shims

Beveled wool felt shaped to fit the front of the Ghost panel. Two pieces per side, use the bigger one alone for a 1/4" lift, both together for a 1/2" lift. You can also shim one side more than the other if your horse has a bigger shoulder (shim the smaller shoulder).
To install, turn your saddle upside down on a level surface. Remove one panel only and open the velcro tab. Push one or both shims to the very front of the panel, close the velcro and reattach to the bottom of the saddle, using the stitch line of the base for positioning while comparing to the panel still in place. Repeat for the other panel.
