Cavallo’s Enhanced Protection Gel Pad gives your horse an extra layer of comfort only when he needs it.

Cavallo Gel Pads are made from a technically advanced and specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer that is designed to provide your horse with temporary extra protection and increased comfort when making the transition from metal shoes to barefoot, while riding on very aggressive terrain or longer distances or for rehabilitation during an injury.  Due to the pliable nature of gel, which moves into the sole cavity – blood flow and circulation is stimulated. This can speed up the healing process and increase hoof health.

*As they are designed for temporary use, when being used for regular riding they can wear out more quickly than traditional pads and may need to be replaced from time to time.

Testimonials

I've been wanting to get my mare barefoot for the longest time, but missed the opportunity every winter. My mare has sensitive front feet and every time we took the shoes off, she went lame (and I didn't have time for her to be sore and harden up), hooves kept on chipping right away and from pure agony we always ended up putting the shoes back on.

I listened to Carole's (Herder) talk at the show and she kept saying how comfortable horses feel when you put the Simple boots on. How they immediately start licking and chewing. I was totally ready to believe her, but still, in the back of my mind there was a little voice saying "yeah right, I'll believe it when I see it". Well, did I see it last night!

My farriers took the shoes off yesterday, and because she has had front shoes on for two years in a row. Her frog is lower than her hoof wall, meaning she does land on her frog first and that is quite uncomfortable for her. I walked around on her in my sandring last night and she tip toed on her newly bare feet. Trotting was definitely sore. Then we went into the deeper sand/grass field and she was allright enough to work a bit. When I came home I washed her feet, put them in a plastic bag and tried a Simple boot on. I had measured from the buttress line to the toe and that indicated 5 inches. So she would need a size 3. She "clicked" right into a size 3, it fit nice and snug (a very little bit of play, but not able to rotate the boot whatsoever) and the second she put that foot on the ground, she lowered her head and started licking her lips and chewing. I was quite flabbergasted. I could almost hear her go "ooohhh, that feels soooooo gooooood". I'm confident this time our barefoot adventure will have a happy ending. My farriers have agreed to come back every 4 weeks for the next little while to keep her feet from chipping too badly, and combined with the boots I am certain that I can get to a happy, healthy horse!

Cavallo Sport boots did not come off! Tuesday (Aug 12, 2014) I went on a trail ride with my Rocky Mtn horse (Harley) wearing his front Cavallo Sport boots, which had 20+ miles on them at this point. We had received 3-4 inches of rain in the 3 days prior so the terrain was VERY muddy. We crossed many muddy areas where they sunk almost to their knees. At the worst point of the ride, we encountered a large tree that completely blocked the trail. The only way we could find to get around without turning around and backtracking for a couple of hours was to dismount and walk the horses through a soft grassy area into a Rhododendron patch and back across another soft grassy area. My horse, Harley, and I went through first. Unfortunately the grassy areas turned out to be muddy bogs. The first area Harley sunk up to his knees. The second area Harley sunk in almost to his belly. Thankfully he managed to get through on his own. And amazingly his Cavallo boots stayed on!! In fact, his boots stayed on the entire ride. There was only one time I dismounted to refasten the strap on each boot that had come undone after crossing mud. I wanted you to know how well these boots have been working in very difficult situations.
