Product Description

Hoof boot studs provide your horse better traction in slippery conditions such as ice, mud and snow.

Things to keep in mind about hoof boot studs:

  • Make sure your boots fit well and your horse is acclimated to wearing them before you apply studs
  • Always apply studs to both boots for proper balance
  • Do not turn horses out wearing studded boots. A frolicking horse can injure himself and others with studded boots.
  • When drilling, make sure the stud does not extend past the sole of the foot. This can especially be a problem on older boots with worn soles.
  • Always use your best judgment when going out for a ride in slippery conditions. Hoof boots provide extra traction, but they do have their limits!

  • When drilling, make sure the stud does not extend past the sole of the foot. This can especially be a problem on older boots with worn soles.
  • Use caution when using studs with Sport Boots, as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boots. Studs may penetrate through older Sport Boots with worn soles.
  • Always use your best judgment when going out for a ride in slippery conditions. Hoof boots provide extra traction, but they do have their limits!

Installation is easy!

Pre-drill 1/8 inch locator holes with a 3/16 inch drill bit. Lock stud into position on the end of the NEW AND IMPROVED tool. Position end of the stud tread over the drilled hole and slowly drill the stud into the sole tread until the base of the stud head touches the sole. IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

Use caution when using studs with SPORT Boots as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boot. Studs may penetrate through when applying studs to used Sport boots with worn soles.

 

Inherent with ice, snow and mud are any variety of slippery conditions. When riding, please use your cautionary judgement regarding safety for you, your horse, and others around you. You should know how your horse will react to being ridden in these types of conditions. Always be cautious when making the decision to go for a snowy ride to ensure everyone gets through the winter safely without injury and can look forward to enjoying the warm sunny rides in the months ahead.

Be sure your boots fit well, before trying them with studs.  Legs, hoofs, pasterns and coronets can be destroyed by the use of studs. Be diligent. Be careful. Do not use studs on one boot and not the other. Horses need balance. Do not turn horses out with studded boots on. Playing around can tear up their legs.  And keep yourself out of the way too. Getting stepped on by a studded hoof is not pleasant. If you are drilling into older boots, please ensure that the stud tread does not extend past the sole of the boot. Boots that are worn down may have a thinner sole and the placement of studs becomes very important. Please use your own thoughtfulness and best judgement.  Always be aware that you have studs in the boots and do not ride in them when they aren’t needed.

First of all i'd like to say that both my horse and I LOVE his Cavallo Boots. It makes for riding the forest over the stoney/rocky/gravelly terrain MUCH nicer for my horse. They are great boots, easy to put on, and even before I ask my horse to raise his leg so I can put his boot on, he raises it on his own, when he sees the boot. I find this really neat as it shows that he does NOT mind wearing them at all .. in fact, the Cavallo Boots make for an awesome ride. If he did not wear the Boots, he would be a bit ouchy and hesitant to walk on the gravelly trail .. he'd be finding the 2 inch strip of grass to walk on .. however, with the Boots, he walks EVERYWHERE without any hesitation. We would NOT be without our Cavallo Boots. I did have another pair made by a different company, and they really were more cumbersome to walk in, and were heavier on his feet. My Motto is ``HAPPY HORSE = HAPPY RIDER`` .. Cavallo ALL THE WAY!!! :)

I love my SIMPLE Boots -- so does Pockets my Paint. We do Natural Horsemanship and mostly trail riding. She's always been quite ginger with her front feet and she's hammer shy (probably a good thing!!) so the boots are a godsend!! We tried the XXX XXXX first but they are quite fiddley -- it's heaps easier with the SIMPLE fastening at the front. Thanks.
