Testimonials

Recently, Greg and I were very personally touched after a visit to Rainier Therapeutic Riding in Yelm, Washington.  We wanted to see firsthand the work being done at the center.  Since beginning their program in 2010, they have focused solely on the rehabilitation of military service veterans who are facing physical and emotional challenges after returning from service. Rainier Therapeutic Riding, a Premier PATH center, received national attention when the story of one of their veterans, Aaron Heliker, was highlighted in the 2014 documentary, Riding My Way Back.  Many of the veterans are trying to overcome the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and physical injuries they incurred during service.  Program participants are often battling feelings of extreme isolation and some are at risk for suicide. [caption id="attachment_5514" align="aligncenter" width="452"]Horse Hoof Boots Debbi Fisher and Root Beer[/caption]   Debbi Fisher, founder of Rainier Therapeutic Riding, is excited that the center has recently taken the metal shoes off their therapy horses, letting them live a more natural lifestyle of being "Barefoot & Booted". Debbi believes that, as opposed to using metal shoes, the combination of living barefoot and using hoof boots while riding gives the hoof a much better opportunity to function naturally. The unshod hoof is able to spread on contact with the ground, causing blood to pump through the lower leg – this minimizes disease and, in turn, minimizes pain. Debbi knows that a comfortable horse is a good therapy horse, and that hoof health is everything. A therapy horse normally works a three to five year span before its retirement, due the physical and mental challenges of the job. Taking metal shoes off and using the Cavallo Boots while riding is an effort to increase the physical comfort of the horses, which will enable the center to provide better quality care to its veterans. Extending a horse’s working life reduces the frequency of having to seek, test, and train a new horse for the job, which is a lengthy and expensive process. Our team at Cavallo is so happy to see the horses and humans of Rainier Therapeutic Riding enjoying the benefits of using Cavallo Hoof Boots. We are honoured to be in Debbi’s company of friends and proud to sponsor RTR. For more information about Rainier Therapeutic Riding, please visit: http://www.rtriding.org/ Horse Hoof Boots

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 Trek

I 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!

Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots over metal horseshoes"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

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!
