  • Velcro the Cavallo wrap around the hoof, keeping it low to the ground around the bottom of the bulb and drawing the elastic diagonally upward from back to front.
  • Place the boot on the hoof, toe first, ensuring that the wrap lies flat. Velcro the red tab from the pastern wrap onto the red Velcro on the tongue of the boot.
  • Carry on your boot fastening procedure as normal.

Details

Remember that there is a break-in period required to soften the leather at the bulbs and around the collar of your horse's new boots. Like your own riding boots, it is recommended that time is taken to gradually break-in your boots. The first day the boots should be worn for 20-30 minutes, during turn-out or riding. The next day, you can increase the time and so on. Horse's hoofs, skin thickness, bulb sensitivity and conditioning can vary, so please monitor the wear and increase time in the boots as appropriate. You can speed up the break-in process by using a leather softener of your choice and/or riding through water.

Velcro the Cavallo wrap around the hoof, keeping it low to the ground around the bottom of the bulb and drawing the elastic diagonally upward from back to front.

After this weekend of riding I just had to submit a story. I have been using the Cavallo boots on my horses for several years. Since I'm not able to ride as often as I'd like, I usually can go about 2 years on 1 pair of boots. This weekend, we went camping/trail riding in the Shawnee Forest in Missouri. 3 days of trails, creeks, & mud . DEEP mud. By the end of the 3rd day, I was very worried the boots would be sucked off in the deep mud, because they were at least 2 year old boots, the outside Velcro straps had lost most of their grip. (ok, all of the grip) My trail companions kept commenting on how great the boots must be if they made it. Well, they did. Picture of Pete, pretty covered in mud. But the boots held on! I've used most every other brand of boot. I had things happen that were not suppose to happen with the product. ( I have a knack for making things happen that aren't suppose to with products. I should test market products. lol). Cavallo Boots are the best! With the cost of regular shoes, & not being able to even wear them down before time to re shoe, Cavallo boots are the BEST. Our camping/trail riding weekend was a complete success due to the boots! Laura

Recently, Greg and I were very personally touched after a visit to Rainier Therapeutic Riding in Yelm, Washington.  We wanted to see firsthand the work being done at the center.  Since beginning their program in 2010, they have focused solely on the rehabilitation of military service veterans who are facing physical and emotional challenges after returning from service. Rainier Therapeutic Riding, a Premier PATH center, received national attention when the story of one of their veterans, Aaron Heliker, was highlighted in the 2014 documentary, Riding My Way Back.  Many of the veterans are trying to overcome the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and physical injuries they incurred during service.  Program participants are often battling feelings of extreme isolation and some are at risk for suicide. [caption id="attachment_5514" align="aligncenter" width="452"]Horse Hoof Boots Debbi Fisher and Root Beer[/caption]   Debbi Fisher, founder of Rainier Therapeutic Riding, is excited that the center has recently taken the metal shoes off their therapy horses, letting them live a more natural lifestyle of being "Barefoot & Booted". Debbi believes that, as opposed to using metal shoes, the combination of living barefoot and using hoof boots while riding gives the hoof a much better opportunity to function naturally. The unshod hoof is able to spread on contact with the ground, causing blood to pump through the lower leg – this minimizes disease and, in turn, minimizes pain. Debbi knows that a comfortable horse is a good therapy horse, and that hoof health is everything. A therapy horse normally works a three to five year span before its retirement, due the physical and mental challenges of the job. Taking metal shoes off and using the Cavallo Boots while riding is an effort to increase the physical comfort of the horses, which will enable the center to provide better quality care to its veterans. Extending a horse’s working life reduces the frequency of having to seek, test, and train a new horse for the job, which is a lengthy and expensive process. Our team at Cavallo is so happy to see the horses and humans of Rainier Therapeutic Riding enjoying the benefits of using Cavallo Hoof Boots. We are honoured to be in Debbi’s company of friends and proud to sponsor RTR. For more information about Rainier Therapeutic Riding, please visit: http://www.rtriding.org/ Horse Hoof Boots
