Cavallin Crusader

Hidden pommel, smooth seat skirt, stirrup anchor and girth rigging integrated into flap for excellent weight distribution across the length of the saddle.
The innovation to distribute weight through the flaps across the length of the saddle was made by Torsion (also designed by Camillo Cavallin) years ago and popularized in the US and Canada through Sensation saddles.

Cavallin Heritage

Comfy saddle with external blocks, fixed stirrup strap with girth rigging integrated into the flap to distribute weight across the length of the saddle.

Cavallin Pioneer

This model is a combination of the Heritage and Crusader (my personal favorite bits of each!) and with the flap moved back 1.5". This is to correspond with me using the rear stirrup ring and having short legs so the Cavallin models aren't ideal for me. This worked great for my mare who dislikes moving legs - excellent stability!

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.

Cavallin Mandriana Rotondo 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 Rotondo is made with gorgeous long fiber sheepskins and has a round 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.

Cavallin Mandriana Toscana BBP

Similar to the Quaddro underneath, the Toscana is for those who don't prefer the long fiber sheepskin. Suede is a fun alternative with many, many color options. You can also choose no block, external velcro block, or a velcro block beneath the main flap. Blocks cost extra.

Cavallin Puro

- Weighs under 10 pounds!
- The Cavallin Puro has a minimalistic seat/flap design, giving the rider freedom for seat and leg position. It's an excellent choice for Endurance, riders who must have a free and open seat, or people who value versatility and freedom of movement that knee blocks and thigh blocks might restrict. (although thigh blocks are an option)
The Puro attracts horse owners who want a very light saddle with an open seat similar to a bareback pad- but want to ride longer, faster, or harder than a bareback pad allows. The Puro feels like a supportive barebackpad with the same excellent horse protection and weight distribution offered by all Ghost saddles  along with a narrow twist and hip comfort. 
-The girthing system for the Puro has been widened with a triangular attachment; two straps attached wide to the GHOST base, narrowing to an  included,angled strap protector, which can be positioned up and down your horse's barrel to customize to the needs of the horse even for horse's with difficult conformation or motion. It has a low, virtually unnoticable profile under the rider's legs, which additionally improves stability in the open seat saddles.   -Test rides conducted in Poland proved that this created a closer contact with the horse, a very stable saddle with lots of scope for the rider. Fitting the Puro showed it remained versatile to Draft horses, Arabians, and Warmbloods, and the new girthing system aided rider safety and security in the saddle, even without thigh blocks. Comment: "This was our fastest ride ever! Main test horses felt so secure with his rider that he was faster and more athletic than he had ever been before. I felt secure and safe the whole time, even without thigh blocks, which I normally love!"

Buttera

Looking for a deep seat? Fabulous security? The new Buttera is available as either a regular Ghost/Cavallin saddle or a Bareback Pad. Materials are limited to suede (ask for color ranges) and Lorica or nubuck for an extra cost. Note - the deep seat has a slightly smaller feel, so you may need to consider going up a size.
$850.00

Buttera Maxxi

The new Buttera Maxxi has even more security than the standard Buttera because it's got a higher cantle. This saddle looks like the saddle knights used for jousting! It's available as either a regular Ghost/Cavallin saddle or a Bareback Pad. Materials are limited to suede (ask for color ranges) and Lorica or nubuck for an extra cost. The stitching pattern is slightly different than the Buttera as well - shown in the first two pics (the others are the standard Buttera to show color options).
Note - the deep seat has a slightly smaller feel, so you may need to consider going up a size.
Customer comment!
If you're not getting any younger (check) joints getting a bit creaky (check) or simply the owner of a very silly horse with an overdeveloped sense of humour (check, check, check) then this saddle is for you. It is the most secure saddle I have ever sat on, or rather in, as it embraces you like an armchair. If your beloved equine slams on the brakes because a stone has moved since the last time you rode this path - no problem. If he/she goes from 0-30 due to a pheasant ambush, again, no problem, you are held by the large pommel in front and the high cantle behind. I truly believe it to be the most secure saddle on the market today and am delighted to own one.

Buttera Vittorio - coming soon!

The Vittorio is based upon the Buttera design but made or very young children who aren't ready for a regular saddle and need additional balance support. The seat is 25cm or 10".
Materials are limited to suede (ask for color ranges) and Lorica as these can follow the extreme curves and are grippy for additional security.
$850.00

Cavallin Mini

Here's a perfect saddle for youngsters! The Ghost Mini has the base and integrated pad of the Bareback Pad models (Mandriana, Toscana, etc) but a seat styled after the standard Ghost models. And it's 30cm (12") from pommel to cantle - compared to 15" for the same measurement on the bambini (16") models, so 3" smaller!
The stirrup hanger is velcro so can be adjusted as your child grows.
For an even smaller, super secure saddle for toddlers, check out the Buttera Vittorio which will be available soon.
