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.

Testimonials

As the President of Cavallo Horse & Rider, I am frequently approached by companies asking that we promote their products. I had never considered it because I couldn’t be 100% certain another company would stand behind their product with the same conviction and standards that we do. Well... Never say never! At trade shows I often find myself working beside an entertaining Swiss man. Ron is friendly, has a great accent and that dry sense of humour that makes you really pay attention. He is a perfect companion at a trade show to help the time pass between customer chats. He has a joint and arthritis supplement which I successfully managed to ignore for several years as just “another product”. But the "thank you’s", wonderful exchanges with horse owners and Ron’s wholehearted belief in what he was saying was hard to resist. There were times people actually lined up to express their appreciation to him for alleviating their pet's pain and discomfort. It was time to pay attention. I have animals I love in my life and I want them to be flexible and comfortable as they age. And I have friends whose horses and dogs were already showing signs of discomfort and pain, so we tried Ron’s product: Natural Stride. The results were irresistibly positive! It was so obvious. Comfort. Mobility. Freedom from pain.  We love this product. We formed a partnership with Ron, so that you – the Cavallo Community -  can access it too. I am so proud to announce that we now offer Natural Stride through our website!   Click here to see Natural Stride. And check out the GREAT SALE we're having until July 2nd. Oh, and this just came in yesterday:

Juanita MartinMy husband and I have three rescued Mustangs; his is now 24 years old.  Ranger was nine years old when we adopted him - pretty set in his wild ways - and was a wonderful mover.  Just last year, I noticed him moving very stiffly and not wanting to move faster than a walk.  We turn them out to pasture for five months every winter.  This spring when we brought them in, Ranger wasn't moving well.  I decided to give Natural Stride a try because I liked the philosophy behind it:  get rid of the inflammation, then treat the joint.  My husband was very skeptical.  In only 10 days we saw a marked difference in his movement.  When we saddled our horses up to ride with some friends, whom we told to leave us behind if they wanted to go quicker.  To our surprise, when they started getting ahead of us, Ranger broke into a trot to keep up, on his own.  Soon he was showing up the others and looking quite proud of himself.  Since then he has proven himself quite capable many times over.  When I call him to dinner he now trots across the corral to meet me instead of struggling up the slope. I am getting constant 'thank-you's' from my husband every time he takes his horse out.  So I am very pleased with the results and want to say a big "Thank you" to you also.

Thank you for sending my new SIMPLE Hoof Boots in time for our Horse 'N Hound jumping performance at Horsefest this past weekend! My draft cross horse, Flying W Farms Tiara, is newly barefoot and is quite sore on gravel footing while her hoof transitions to its new barefoot state. Our performance was moved from a grassy field to a limestone gravel arena due to all of the rain we've had. If it weren't for these boots, we would not have been able to perform. I'm happy to say that they fit her beautifully and were quite easy to put on. Tiara was instantly comfortable in them and it showed! Several people came up to me before our performance to ask what they were and purposefully stayed to watch this ultimate SIMPLE Boot test ride over a jump course of 11 fences complete with many tight turns and rollbacks. I was nervous myself as I didn't have much of a chance to try them out before performing, but they worked marvelously! I I'm very impressed and my horse is a happy camper! Here is a picture of me and my horse, Flying W Farms Tiara, in our war horse/gladiator costume complete with our SIMPLE Boots!

P.S.: I took Tiara on another trail ride today on a gravel in her SIMPLE boots with the man who leases her in the saddle and he noticed a HUGE difference in her stride and comfort level as well! She was happy bouncing along the trail like she's never done before!
