Cavallo’s Enhanced Protection Gel Pads give your horse an extra layer of comfort for his Cavallo Hoof Boots when he needs it.
Cavallo Gel Pads are made from a 5mm thick, technically advanced, and specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer that is designed to provide your horse with temporary extra protection. Gel Pads offer 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, it moves into the sole cavity, stimulating blood flow circulation. This can speed up the healing process and increase hoof health.
*As Gel Pads are designed for temporary therapeutic 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.

Connie Challice - A Barefoot Trimmer and a Winner!Connie Challice is an accomplished barefoot trimmer located in the Calgary, Alberta, area. She's a believer in natural hoof care and she walks the talk . All of her horses are barefoot, with exceptionally healthy hoofs. She enjoys the freedom of being barefoot & booted and she enjoys an active, equestrian lifestyle.
The Calgary Stampede was Calling...This July, Connie and her crew had a vital role to play at the Calgary Stampede. They were asked to provide teams of horses for the Stampede Parade. Their carriages toured national, provincial, and city politicians. They also had the honour of touring esteemed veterans in their wheelchair-accessible wagon. Connie, herself, drew the RCMP and First Nations dignitaries in their Vis-a-vis carriage.
Cavallo Roped in the Crowds!The Cavallo BFB and ELB Bling Hoof Boots recently roped in the parade crowds! Connie sent us a message after, telling us about how well the boots worked to keep the horses comfortable, safe and grounded on the slick asphalt during the parade: “We had a team of Suffolk Punch horses (Jack and Flame) driven at the 2019 Calgary Stampede parade. They are an older team, and Flame has a little arthritis - after pavement work, he can sometimes seem sore. This has changed with the Cavallo BFB Boots and Pads, he's able to do many miles and remains comfortable. We all are grateful for this. It makes so much sense to have a comfortable option that helps absorb the shock of the pavement. Luke, our 8-year-old Clydesdale, was wearing Cavallo BFB's under his feathers and they were absolutely amazing for the whole event; he was even comfortable on the crushed road gravel. Altogether, we provided 11 teams of horses for the parade this year. Almost all of the teams were either bare or booted and had no traction problems at all - even on the wet pavement!" -Connie
Because Cavallo LOVES a Challenge!By request, BFB was developed to meet the needs of carriage/driving, working and pleasure drafts, as well as those in need of a boot during periods of hoof rehabilitation. Producing a hoof boot that could support the weight and activity of animals weighing around a ton was no simple task for us! Technically advanced materials are selected to withstand intense weight and pressure in repetitive motion and be counted on to provide shock absorption and weight distribution.
Coming Soon - New Sizes of Cavallo BFB Draft Hoof Boots!At Cavallo, we're announcing another new development. Coming Soon - new Sizes of Cavallo BFB draft Hoof Boots! Currently in production are two new sizes to accommodate the Big Horse population. Sizes 7 and 9 will be added to Cavallo’s draft-size range of BFB (Big Foot Boots) and are expected to hit the U.S market in early 2020.
