- 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!"

An additional comment, some people find the transition at the bottom of the "flap" to be uncomfortable. I've found for those who are sensitive, fenders make a big difference. If you don't want fenders, the Florac has a slightly longer flap. Softer materials like micronappa or suede/Lorica make a difference too.
