All was going well until we stopped for lunch and “assumed” that all the horses would stay inside the fenced enclosure we were in. My Arabian mare Darlin had other ideas, since she is a smart and reliable trail horse knew where home was. Fortunately for her and my peace of mind the park is entirely fenced.
We looked of course, but I called the search off at 11:30 Sunday night planning on resuming the next day. My friend, who knows the park much better than I, thought long and hard about where she might be. She brought a horse for me and we were off. Needless to say Darlin was very happy to see us when we found her right where my friend thought she was going to be. Since home was to the southwest that is where we looked, Darlin was indeed going home.
Now to the part of the story that involves Cavallo boots. All Darlin had on was a halter (halter/bridle trail riding equipment), and her Cavallo boots. Yep, you guessed it, the boots were secure and protected Darlin’s feet throughout her/my ordeal. They were damp as well indicating that she had been in water some time during the night (drinking, I hope). I LOVE Cavallo boots.

Greg Giles, Cavallo Hoof Boots CEO, was recently approached by Chika at Equitana in Melbourne, Australia. Intrigued to find a true barefoot enthusiast from Japan, Greg asked how she came to her decisions about hoof boots. Barefoot and the use of hoof boots is not common practice in Japan. Chika said she never liked the idea of nailing metal to her horse and she wanted to do better. So, she fired up her computer, hit the internet and put in the time! Chika researched thoroughly and then watched every single video on our You Tube channel! When I approached the conversation, she surprised me by yelling out "CAROLE!". She recognized me from watching the instructional videos. We had a laugh about it, and she explained how her journey led her to get on a plane and come out to Melbourne to secure her new Cavallo hoof boots for her horse. Can you imagine? Wow. I just have a mountain of admiration for her commitment and her diligence in caring for her horse's hoofs. The top photo is Chika at Equitana with our favorite horsemen, Dan James and Dan Steers from Double Dan Horsemanship. When Chika got back to snowy Japan, she sent us this photo. It must have been an adjustment from the Australian heat! Dear to our hearts are Chika and her beloved 4-leggeds. Thanks Chika - it was lovely to meet you! Wishing you many happy trails wherever your home may be,
