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

Details

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.
  • 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.

My 7 yo Appy, Kid, loves being out on the trails but his feet were getting sore from the gravel on the dirt roads. After purchasing a pair of Cavallo Trek boots for him he wants to go further and longer ! We recently competed in a trail ride and he was in heaven; truckin' through mud, sand and moving right out on several dirt/gravel roads. One of the horses I rode with was obviously getting sore so I highly recommended a pair of your boots to her rider. I didn't want the expense and sometimes inconvenience of shoes - these boots are exactly what we need. Thank you for such a great product!

After this weekend of riding I just had to submit a story. I have been using the Cavallo boots on my horses for several years. Since I'm not able to ride as often as I'd like, I usually can go about 2 years on 1 pair of boots. This weekend, we went camping/trail riding in the Shawnee Forest in Missouri. 3 days of trails, creeks, & mud . DEEP mud. By the end of the 3rd day, I was very worried the boots would be sucked off in the deep mud, because they were at least 2 year old boots, the outside Velcro straps had lost most of their grip. (ok, all of the grip) My trail companions kept commenting on how great the boots must be if they made it. Well, they did. Picture of Pete, pretty covered in mud. But the boots held on! I've used most every other brand of boot. I had things happen that were not suppose to happen with the product. ( I have a knack for making things happen that aren't suppose to with products. I should test market products. lol). Cavallo Boots are the best! With the cost of regular shoes, & not being able to even wear them down before time to re shoe, Cavallo boots are the BEST. Our camping/trail riding weekend was a complete success due to the boots! Laura
