Double D’ Horse Training, an authorized dealer of Cashel products is proud to offer products from this outstanding company.  This particular product was rated #1 in John Lyons Perfect Horse May 1998 edition.

I've been asked which one of these I prefer and I prefer this one over the long version.  It puts the padding where you need it without taking up any saddle room and to me if feels better.

With the changes in shipping rates and shipping options (especially international orders) we encourage you to get a shipping quote from us first if you are buying more than one item.

- Ride close contact in comfort
- Will not compact or bunch up like fleece seat savers
- Does not absorb and hold heat like a gel pad
- Adjustable nylon straps hold the cushion firmly in place - prevents sliding and shifting
- More hidden than other pads, so others can't see it when in use. 
- Rated Number 1 by John Lyons’ PERFECT HORSE May 1998

Cashel® Western (standard) Tush Cushion®

Rated #1 Seat Saver,
John Lyons' Perfect Horse, May 1998

The careful engineering of the Cashel Tush Cushion® puts relief only where you need it, allowing you to ride comfortably for hours. Your Cashel Tush Cushion® is made with the same closed-cell foam as the popular Cashel Cushion™ saddle pads, which will not collapse the way open-cell foam does. It will not compact or bunch up like fleece seat savers nor absorb and hold heat the way a gel pad will.  Adjustable nylon straps hold your Cashel Tush Cushion® firmly in place, preventing the sliding and shifting problem experienced with other seat savers.

All the items I sell I personally use and believe in.  I don't carry the entire line of every product.... I carry those items I feel have worked well for me... The endorsement as the #1 item by John Lyons provides testimony for this item. 

The saddle is not included... the cushion on the saddle is what is for sale.

Common Questions:  
Why do I get such a sore tush while I am riding but the soreness goes away if I get off and walk a few minutes?

When you ride, much of your weight exerts pressure on your hamstring tendons where they attach to the lower part of your pelvis, compressing them between your pelvic bones and the hard saddle and causing a painful impingement.  This pain can often be reduced when you dismount and walk a bit.  Walking restores the circulation and relieves the impingement.

The high quality closed-cell foam (please see Closed-Cell Foam information below) inside this Cashel Tush Cushion cushions the top of your saddle so that this tendon impingement is reduced, making your ride significantly less painful! In addition, your Tush Cushion will help avoid the bruising that occurs when you first ride after not having ridden for a while. 

Why would I need to use a tush cushion if my tush does not hurt now?

Even if you are not currently in pain while riding, the impact and jarring generated by riding is causing wear and tear on your spine and hips. Archeologists exploring ancient royal grave sites in China can tell the age of the cavalry officers by how worn down their pelvic bones are! Using your Tush Cushion will help keep you in the saddle years down the road.             

Don't understand how this compares to other cushions on the market -- let me help!!
The Tush Cushion uses C
LOSED-CELL FOAM.... What is the difference between open-cell foam and closed-cell foam?
Open-cell foam is absorbent like your kitchen sponge because the spaces or cells are constructed so that water and air can flow through easily. While making great sponges, open-cell foam is ineffective as a cushioning material because it tends to collapse down to nothing when weight is applied. Open-cell foam is often touted because it "breathes" i.e. allows air to pass through easily. Unfortunately, once the air cells have absorbed sweat or have collapsed under pressure, this "breathing" no longer occurs.
Closed-cell foam is constructed so the cells are encapsulated like the cells of a beehive, making it difficult for water or air to pass through easily. Closed-cell foam is a superior material for cushioning as it will compress but not collapse completely. Cashel has used the same unique closed-cell foam (originally designed for the aerospace industry) since 1986. This durable closed-cell foam does not absorb sweat, moisture or bacteria so that it is easy to clean and will not rot or smell if hosed off after use. 

CLOSED CELL vs GEL  Why are Cashel closed-cell foam products better than gel Products?                                                                                                            
We feel that Cashel closed-cell foam is a better material for cushioning than gel for several reasons:
1) With the constant impact/wear and tear generating in riding, we believe that gel consistency eventually breaks down and become more liquid. This would make the gel move away from the point of impact more quickly, thus reducing its ability to cushion. Cashel closed-cell foam maintains its therapeutic cushioning abilities for years. Cashel states that they know of trainers that have used the same Cashel closed-cell foam saddle pad for over ten years without any loss of cushioning benefits.
2) Gel products weigh significantly more than Cashel closed-cell foam products.
3) In that they are filled with a liquid, gel pads absorb and retain heat. Cashel closed-cell foam does not.
4) Gel products cannot be sculpted, beveled, or wedged the way Cashel products can, limiting gel pads' custom therapeutic uses.
5) Gel products are typically significantly more expensive than the same product made by CAshel.
