I ride in our Denman Provincial Park (we have a multi-use trail system on our trails - aren't we so lucky!) and I feel good that my horses are not leaving pock marks or deep marks like the horses that are shod. I feel that this is an added positive to using boots on trails. It also goes a long way with the parks planners when you can show that your horses are not leaving any damage on the trails. For those back country riders and shared trails users, this can mean the difference between being allowed onto a shared trail system or not. I have had some great conversations with people I meet on the trail who ask "What is that on your horses feet!" I can then explain that they have their own hiking boots.
I have been using Cavallo boots on my horses since you started up. I've used them on my small-footed horses (size 1 to 3) and I used them on my half-draft mare (size 5).
I've used both the Simple Boots and have recently (in the last 8 years) been using the Trek. I LOVE these boots. They go on easy, they last and last and my horses really do ride differently and more confidently when they have the boots on. With the Trek,it is perfect that you send an extra velcro tab as that is the only part that needed any attention after many happy miles on the trails on Denman Island, BC.
Tread Lightly on your Trails with Cavallos!
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!
