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.

Testimonials

This is how it all started.

A few weeks ago, we received a request from Hawaii.. Aloha Carole

My name is Lori and I work for the Mayor of Honolulu. The May or has been riding my horses in various parades and the rule the parades have is that every horse needs to be shod. It's so frustrating to deal with these archaic views and policies. They are stating that the heat of the asphalt is detrimental to the hooves.  image4

Mahalo, Lori

This was not the first time this issue has come across to us at Cavallo.    Of course there is the consideration of significant heat conduction and transference from metal shoes on asphalt. Have they ever seen the sparks fly when metal hits that surface or even rocks on the trail at a speed?

What about the benefits of protection that our Cavallo soles would provide?

There are not studies available, but I can tell you from experience our Cavallo soles do not transfer as much heat as metal. And if you 'compare apples to apples', the benefits of a properly functioning hoof that bears weight and encourages blood circulation is far superior to what happens to a shod horse moving on a hard surface. Here we do have studies! The University of Zurich in Switzerland conducted a study determining that 800 Hz frequency travels up the shod horses’ structure at a trot on asphalt.  This amount is enough to kill live tissue, both within the hoof itself and further up the horse’s structure.image2

Obviously I offered The Mayor some boots. And here’s the response from Lori below:

Our Aloha Festivals 70th Annual Parade was this weekend and the Mayor of Honolulu rode my horse, Misty. As I mentioned before, she has never been shod before so boots were being allowed as a compromise. Your boots worked absolutely perf ectly!! They all stayed in place and did not rub her at all.img_0661 They actually blended in perfectly and looked so natural. I thank you very much for your support and WONDERFUL boots!! Mahalo, Lori Kahikina All’s well that ends well.

Mahalo! A Testimonial from Hawaii

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.
