Hoof boot studs provide your horse better traction in slippery conditions such as ice, mud and snow.

Details

Things to keep in mind about hoof boot studs:

  • Make sure your boots fit well and your horse is acclimated to wearing them before you apply studs
  • Always apply studs to both boots for proper balance
  • Do not turn horses out wearing studded boots. A frolicking horse can injure himself and others with studded boots.
  • When drilling, make sure the stud does not extend past the sole of the foot. This can especially be a problem on older boots with worn soles.
  • Use caution when using studs with Sport Boots, as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boots. Studs may penetrate through older Sport Boots with worn soles.
  • Always use your best judgment when going out for a ride in slippery conditions. Hoof boots provide extra traction, but they do have their limits!

Installation is easy!

Pre-drill 1/8 inch locator holes with a 3/16 inch drill bit. Lock stud into position on the end of the NEW AND IMPROVED tool. Position end of the stud tread over the drilled hole and slowly drill the stud into the sole tread until the base of the stud head touches the sole. IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

Use caution when using studs with SPORT Boots as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boot. Studs may penetrate through when applying studs to used Sport boots with worn soles.

 

Inherent with ice, snow and mud are any variety of slippery conditions. When riding, please use your cautionary judgement regarding safety for you, your horse, and others around you. You should know how your horse will react to being ridden in these types of conditions. Always be cautious when making the decision to go for a snowy ride to ensure everyone gets through the winter safely without injury and can look forward to enjoying the warm sunny rides in the months ahead.

Be sure your boots fit well, before trying them with studs.  Legs, hoofs, pasterns and coronets can be destroyed by the use of studs. Be diligent. Be careful. Do not use studs on one boot and not the other. Horses need balance. Do not turn horses out with studded boots on. Playing around can tear up their legs.  And keep yourself out of the way too. Getting stepped on by a studded hoof is not pleasant. If you are drilling into older boots, please ensure that the stud tread does not extend past the sole of the boot. Boots that are worn down may have a thinner sole and the placement of studs becomes very important. Please use your own thoughtfulness and best judgement.  Always be aware that you have studs in the boots and do not ride in them when they aren’t needed.

Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you for these wonderful boots! I am still riding my 28 yr old TB mare because of them! She was originally my daughter's show horse - but when my daughter went off to college, Cassie stayed behind in semi-retirement. Unfortunately, as she aged, her already bad feet got worse fast - couldn't keep a shoe on her for more than a week. We decided to pull her shoes and let her move into retirement in the pasture (at just 20). After about 6 months of letting her feet grow out - it was obvious that after years of being ridden several times a week, she was fast growing bored (and getting into trouble). We tried multiple products to toughen up her feet enough to ride her, but no luck. About 5 years ago I discovered your Cavallo simple boot - and after one trial ride where we had to keep stopping to look at our feet , Cassie is now nicknamed "Cinderella " at the barn because of her obvious love of her "slippers"! I am back to riding her on a regular basis - we take nice long strolls through the woods - and not tree roots, pine cones, rocks or concrete phase her! Once her boots are on - she steps out strong and confident. We ride through puddles, mud, woods - we may have an occasional velco strap come loose, but the shoe itself never budges. I just ordered her a new pair (have a strap ready to wear all the way through) - in purple to match her diva personality! Thank you for giving me and Cassie many more years of strolling pleasure! P.S And my favorite thing about the simple boots – they are SIMPLE!! Slide on, stay on, keep them clean – and a new set of inserts about once a year – all that is needed! As soon as I start tacking Cassie up to ride, she starts picking up her front feet – wants to make sure I remember the slippers!

Cassie's Simple Boots

I recently ordered a pair of Simple boots for my Australian Stockhorse stallion. Past injury has resulted in excessive heel growth (and very little toe growth) on one front foot - which causes him to move unevenly. It also means that he has more round or square feet, rather than elongated. I did a lot of research into the various types of boots available to find one that would fit his type of hooves. Correcting this is an uphill battle as we have very hard ground and he constantly wears his toes - more on the one side. The Cavallo boots fit beautifully and now I have a horse that moves so evenly - it was like riding a completely different horse!

Thanks Cavallo!
