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

Image of Horse in Cavallo Simple Boots

"Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for such an amazing product I didn't even know I needed. I bought my barefoot horse a pair of the Simple Boots 2 years ago to protect his hooves when we rode. They were perfect, and worked great! Not long after that he was diagnosed with laminitis. We have been battling it ever since. His Cavallo boots have been the most wonderful blessing for him in this battle. They are easy to fit over any padding and bandages, and are his one source of comfort on painful hooves. I never would have thought the boots would be such a life saver for him. He lives in them 24/7 now and his laminitis is slowly improving. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I truly believe his Simple Boots are part of why he has been able to start healing and enjoy being a horse again!"

I can't even begin to tell you how much my horse, Nougat Bar, appreciates his Cavallo Boots. Even before I ask him to lift his leg so that I can put his boots on, he lifts his leg automatically when he sees them. He knows our ride will be a good one, even when we go on the forest trails that are pretty stoney. The Cavallo Boots hold up extremely well .. we go through muck and water and the boots always stay on. With the drainage holes, water does not stay in the boot.  They are so easy to put on, and the boots make for a much better trail ride, with no ouchy feet. Would never go without them. Cavallo Boots are THE ABSOLUTE BEST horse hoof boots in the world -  I'm sure glad that I discovered them. Thank you Cavallo for making our trails ... happy ones. :) Shari - Ajax, Ontario, Canada
