The Heller Black Master is a finely toothed rasp especially well suited for hard, dry hooves. The Black Master differs from other rasps — anextra coating ensures material is released from the rasp more easily and makes the rasp more wear resistant. This rasp is particularly suited to horses that spend a lot of time outside and accumulate sand and mud that can negatively impact the wear process of rasps.
The file side of Heller rasps is sharp, enabling efficient removal of material with little effort.

Thank you so much for a terrific product: SIMPLE Boots. My horse is now set up in four boots that fit like a glove. He is transitioning to barefoot, and must walk over a long stone path to get to the pasture. As a result, he has had some tenderness, and reluctance to walk over the stones. The first time I put the boots on him (this took me less than two minutes) and led him over the stones, he floated all the way down the path. They work so well for us because I needed a type of boot that I could take off /put on at the pasture gate. SIMPLE Boots are perfect for this and now my horse has the best of both worlds — barefoot in the pasture and normal ground, and comfortably and quickly booted on ouchier conditions. I now have a natural hoofcare trimmer, and I have recommended Simple Boots to her and her clients. My veterinarian examined my Simple Boots, also, and he was impressed with how well my horse moves with them on. In fact, we recommended them to one of his clients whose horse had severe laminitis. Needless to say, your Simple Boots are being well-advertised in northern Ohio! Thanks again for a great product and a great company!

Mounted Search And Rescue / Mounted Police
Cavallo offers special discounts to selected Mounted Search and Rescue and Mounted Police members throughout North America. These hard-working horses, booted with Cavallos, then receive the best protection through the rough terrain they often encounter. Enabling these horses to navigate as safely and sure-footedly as possible by offering them affordable access to Cavallos is our "Thank You". These people are often volunteers, willingly putting themselves in dangerous situations for the sake of others.
The Equine Advantage
On horseback, Search and Rescue riders have the physical ability to access places that a vehicle can not. Loud vehicle sounds, such as ATV motors, could drown out a call for help. With the unique advantage of the horse's natural ability to sense life around them, valuable signals are relayed from horse to rider. These clues can indicate the location or presence of a missing or injured person.
Many urban Mounted Units must ride on hard, aggressive terrain to be where they need to be. Cavallo Hoof Boots are used by mounted units to absorb the impact of hoof strike on hard ground, decreasing fatigue. This allows police horses to stay fresh and focus on their jobs at hand!If you see any Mounted Search and Rescue or police working hard out there on the trails or on the streets, remember to give them a great big smile for all they do for us!
