Yes…2 thumbs up. I had chronic tailbone pain. It escalated starting in 2010 and a workup showed nothing…so I was told. Re-visited the situation another 5-6 years down the road when it got too painful to sit on my horse (or in a chair ). After further imaging, it was discovered I had a fair sized spur on my tailbone. I finally had it removed in 2017. I still have some discomfort and before the surgery, I made my own seat saver with a coccyx cutout out of one of those Roma white foam half pads and covered it with a sheep skin seat saver.
Somewhere I lost the foam part of the homemade seat saver but I took two years off of riding completely to let the much abused area heal after surgery and hoped I wouldn’t need it. I discovered after surgery that my butt still would prefer some coccyx space and I found the Acavallo. I can ride pretty darn comfortably. I haven’t tried a lot of sitting trot as a few other surgeries kept me out of the saddle more than in until last year. I tend to the ‘thrifty’ side too but don’t regret this purchase at all. At this point, I am not showing and not sure I will get back to that but I will have to show without the seat unless I want to try for a dispensation.
I am planning on a beach ride in the fall when my friend and I go to the Oregon coast. I hope the stable has an English saddle or two so I can take my seat saver with me.
