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

Keep Those Metal Horseshoes ON! 🐴"Hello, just wanted to let you know that we are so pleased with our Cavallo Trek Boots! Our horse used to throw a front shoe at least once or twice a month. We tried every bell boot available, to no avail. Last Winter, he wound up tearing off his shoe and clipping the heel of his front foot so badly that he needed daily bandaging and stall rest for two months.

Time to Try TrekI spoke with Krystle at Cavallo and she suggested we try the Trek Boots. They've worked out perfectly; he has not thrown a shoe since. We use them for turnout. He’s gone through deep snow and thick, sticky mud, yet he always comes in from the paddock with his boots and, most importantly, his SHOES ON as well. I know the boots are advertised for horses without shoes; however we found them to be just as effective to use as an overboot on a shod horse. Love the quality of boots, durability through all conditions and the fantastic service we got from Cavallo. Would highly recommend the boots as an overboot for shod horses, certainly worked out well for us!"
Boots over Metal Horse Shoes? 🤔 YEP!"Tommy, my paint, is 24 years young and loves going places to ride. We left him at home for a year before we found these boots. He is so glad to be out riding again!I Tommy has VERY tender soles. He wears metal horseshoes, but I put Treks (with pads to protect the Treks), on him to ride trails. They have been great! They stay on, and he never gets poked or becomes lame now. Thank you for a great product!" - Jamie Doup
Cavallo Protection Hoof Boot PadsDid you know Cavallo has designed a special pad to help protect boot soles from metal shoes and keep your boots lasting for ages? The Cavallo Protection Pads are made of a Kevlar-type material. View them HERE. We have also heard from a mounted police force in Australia who use Trek over metal shoes - one unit recently used them during a major protest and Trek offered 100% hoof protection and safety for the attending horses AND their riders!
