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!

Laminitis Held Valentine Back WAY too Long - Then she Got CLB's!
A few months back, Valentine started wearing CLB's so she could keep moving comfortably while she fought Laminitis. Here's today's report - and t's a GOOD one!
"We reached our goal today! Valentine was back in the cart for the first time in 2 YEARS!
The yellow Comfort Pads have made a big difference for her tender feet as well. We are looking forward to getting her muscle mass back and building her stamina. My Mother was over the moon excited to drive her today! I took her for a drive in the hay field, which was the first time she’s ever pulled her cart outside of an arena. It’s been a good day!"
