Description

The Cavallo Simple Boot is designed to be easy to fit and simple to look after. A range of sizes is available and each boot has been developed to fit against the natural shape of a horse's hoof. The Cavallo boot is effective in encouraging a healthy hoof while allowing the natural mobility of the hoof.

Each pair of Cavallo Simple Boots come with a free hoof pick

Measuring and Fitting your Cavallo Hoof Boots

Cavallo Boots are SIMPLE to MEASURE

1 ) Measure the hoof carefully just AFTER A FRESH TRIM.

2) Measure the length from the heel buttress line to the toe. Do NOT include heel bulbs. (Refer to the diagram and video below)

3) Measure right across the widest part of each hoof.

4) Compare your measurements to Cavallo sizing chart below. Stay within the boot size range as room for growth has already been allowed for between regular trims. The Cavallo Regular sole is best for a hoof that is measuring the same length and width. The Slim sole is 1/4 inch (6 mm) narrower than long and better suited to a more oval shaped hoof.

5) Please re-measure if the length is greater than the width by two sizes, 1/2 inch (12mm) or more.

Measuring Tips:

IMPORTANT: OUR MEASURING TOOL MAY NOT PRINT TO SCALE (which could result in incorrect sizing). Please check measurements against a ruler before proceeding to measure.

  • The weight-bearing LENGTH indicates the size necessary. Take width measurements as well since that helps to confirm you have chosen the correct size
  • You may wish to measure each hoof as they may differ in size requiring two different pairs.
  • Only new UNUSED boots can be exchanged. To keep the boot clean, we suggest covering the hoof with thin plastic and checking fit on a non-scuff (not gravel), clean, dry surface.
  • Cavallo Hoof Boots are SIMPLE to FIT!

Simply insert hoof into boot. Secure Velcro® closures and adjust sliding keepers on the Simple boot or secure outside closure on the Sport boot.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON FITTING:

  • You should not have to force the boot on the horse’s hoof in any way.If you are having to force the boot on it is too small.
  • If the boot is rotating independently from the horse’s hoof it is too big. A wiggle is ok because the hoof expands in weight bearing and even further in movement.
  • Remember that there is a break-in period like your own boots would be when you first get them. The first day the boots shouldn’t be worn for more than 20 minutes. You wouldn’t put on brand new boots and go walking for hours; treat your horse’s new boots as you would your own. You can speed up the break-in process by using leather softener or riding through water.

Here you can see how the sole fits into the length of the boot and the heel bulbs fit into the padded heel area at the back of the boot.

Before Your First Ride

Only new UNUSED boots can be exchanged. To keep the boot clean, we suggest covering the hoof with thin plastic and checking fit on a non-scuff (not gravel), clean, dry surface.

Like your own riding boots, it is recommended that time is taken to gradually break in your Cavallo Boots. If your horse has sensitive skin, or if you are going on a long ride and are concerned about potential rubbing, Cavallo Pastern Wraps are available. If your horse is fine boned and there is excess space between the pastern and the boot collar, wraps can also prevent major debris from entering the boot.

Simple Fitting Tips:

  • SOLE: The sole of the hoof should fit securely inside the boot sole. Ensure that the entire weight-bearing wall from front of toe to heel buttress sits within the Simple Boot outsole. It may be helpful to compare the outside raised tread area at the bottom of the boot to the weight-bearing length of the hoof sole (toe to buttress as per diagram above).
  • OUTER COVER: Ensure that the boot tongue is pushed firmly against the hoof. Draw the outer flaps firmly around the hoof, pressing the Velcro on the flaps against the Velcro on the tongue; keep taut and level.
  • TWISTING: If the boot twists or moves excessively, it may be too big or the outer cover may be loosely fastened.
  • TOO SMALL: If you have difficulty putting the boot on, it may be too small. Ideally the boot “snaps” nicely onto the hoof for a good fit. Please check your measurements against the chart above.
  • PASTERN WRAPSmay be used to assist in the breaking-in process to prevent chafing.
  • ONCE THE BOOT IS FITTED,if the strap extends beyond the nylon keeper, then you can cut the strap to the preferred length, leaving a line of stitching to prevent unraveling. (Only applies to Simple Boot)

PLEASE NOTE: Boots cannot be exchanged if straps have been cut. Be sure boots are correct size BEFORE cutting.

I have had a pair of similar hoof boots before, which I drove a pony in. I purchased these as my pony is doing a lot of road work due to the tracks being flooded. He took a while getting used to them in the paddock before I let the small jockeys ride him in them.

I did have to add some additional padding to the collar and heel area as they did rub a liitle, but got us over a period before i could get some light shoes put on.

He has done about 20 hours hacking in them and the soles show no real wear so I expect they would last all summer if we need.
