For those who would like additional protection, we offer the Cavallo Pastern Wrap (sold in sets of two). The pastern wrap offers an extra layer of protection for your horse’s soft skin when you ride.

  • Velcro the Cavallo wrap around the hoof, keeping it low to the ground around the bottom of the bulb and drawing the elastic diagonally upward from back to front.
  • Place the boot on the hoof, toe first, ensuring that the wrap lies flat. Velcro the red tab from the pastern wrap onto the red Velcro on the tongue of the boot.
  • Carry on your boot fastening procedure as normal.

Details

Remember that there is a break-in period required to soften the leather at the bulbs and around the collar of your horse's new boots. Like your own riding boots, it is recommended that time is taken to gradually break-in your boots. The first day the boots should be worn for 20-30 minutes, during turn-out or riding. The next day, you can increase the time and so on. Horse's hoofs, skin thickness, bulb sensitivity and conditioning can vary, so please monitor the wear and increase time in the boots as appropriate. You can speed up the break-in process by using a leather softener of your choice and/or riding through water.

Click here to read Yvonne Welz, of the Horse's hoof, and Belle's success with Cavallo pads! "I have tried every pad on the market to help relieve stress from bad-fitting saddles. Aside from a custom fit saddle, using two 1-inch thick wool felt pads was the best solution until we tried the Cavallo pad. Sore backs in the middle of the spine is common in jumpers upon landing when the saddle gives and the rider's weight comes down in the middle of the horse's back. The Cavallo pad performed equally or better than the wool pads we had been using to reduce saddle pressure on the spine of several Grand Prix jumpers. The horses stopped getting "strong" after the fences when their backs no longer hurt on landing. I am recommending my clients try this pad first to determine if the saddle is indeed causing the behavioral issues such as "teeth grinding", "pulling", "hurrying" or "bucking" which is so commonly linked to sore back in horses. Thank you for sharing your vision of making horse's lives more comfortable for competition and making an affordable pad that works!"

"Saddles are not a natural extension of a horse and even a good-fitting saddle can become painful or irritating in spite of the best-intentioned rider. Gel pads seems to squeeze the pressure ventrally (down) the back and because there is no gullet relief, can do more harm than good. My experience is that most horses develop a sore back at some time or other and because it seems to be an occupational hazard for a horse, we must do our utmost to protect the back from uneven weight distribution and painful stimuli. I have found that the superior fit and cushioning effect of Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pads have alleviated most of the painful back symptoms of the horses in my veterinary care and those that I am riding. I highly recommend Cavallo TSPs to anyone riding with a saddle."
