The well-balanced hoof knife has a comfortable, ergonomically designed handle. The blade exits in line with the lower part of the handle, allowing pinpoint accuracy while trimming the sole. The hook has a smaller radius, making it easier to trim between the frog and the bar. The small hook also makes it easier to form smaller holes in the hoof when removing abscesses. The blade is made of the most suitable knife steel, and it is hardened and tempered for high performance and durability.
Been Through it all...I have been using Cavallo Hoof Boots for four years now. I'm on my second pair for the fronts, having worn those out (they're still usable in a pinch as the velcro is very durable). I live in Iowa where the terrain does not call for shoes, especially for horses with great feet. We have been trail riding in Colorado at 12,000 feet, in the Black Hills of South Dakota's rugged terrain, Wisconsin bogs, Iowa mud, Nebraska rivers, rocky creeks and more! These boots stay on, (I've never had to get off to put a boot back on), they last and, if you first have a problem, the team at Cavallo will take care of you. This product is worth every cent in my book! Thank you for an alternative to shoes... -Dorrine Norby, Iowa
"These Boots Stay on!"
SIMPLE Boots save the day! Two weeks before our planned riding vacation, one of our horses came up limping and we were concerned we couldn’t go. I ordered the SIMPLE Hoof Boots and was happily surprised to see that as soon as I put the boots on, he stopped limping right away and was fine as long as the boots were on. On the trip, we were able to ride over very rocky, difficult terrain with ease, and I know we could not have done so without the Simple Boots. When we returned from vacation, we found that his hoof had healed during the ride. Thank you for a wonderful product ... we're just tickled pink!
