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!

 

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.

Vancouver Mounted Police in Cavallo Hoof Boots

Happy Horses:  Our Passion

Cavallo Horse & Rider is a company with a passion - to see every horse happy, healthy, and free from disease and discomfort.  That's why we choose employees who hold animals in the highest regard. We're committed to contributing to the well-being of our hooved friends through our work at Cavallo.

When we see other organizations who share this passion, we try to give back where we can.  We believe that generosity enables.

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!
Happy Trails,
Carole Herder's Signature Carole Herder's Signature

Cavallo Gives

LOVE THE SPORT HOOF BOOTS!!! I was a bit concerned when measuring my 16.1hh Friesian, Gunnar for Cavallo boots for his comfort as we get thru the summer drought when grass sugars peak. Looked like size 6 might be too small but took a chance. So glad I did! They fit with enough room to easily go on without a struggle and took less than 15 minutes for him to acclimate. He feels secure and comfortable in them. Now we can ride anywhere ( except in competition) without concerns. This is important because we do demos and can't always know ahead of time what the footing will be. Very happy! - Leslie Berro, Davidson, NC
