For those who would like additional protection, we offer the Cavallo Pastern Wraps (sold in sets of two). The pastern wraps offer an extra layer of protection for your horse’s soft skin when you ride.
- 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.

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. On 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.

Cavallo Pastern Wrap Testimonial
“Hello, I am SOOO happy with my Pastern Wraps for Seamus’ BFB Boots!
I used the Wraps today for the first time and they were incredible!! Seamus is so comfortable in his boots, and now I don’t have to worry about his bulbs or coronet band being rubbed.
He is feeling more secure in them – I can tell by the way he moves out now at the trot and canter. He is not as hesitant. The Pastern Wraps were the final tweaking we needed – kinda like the difference between wearing running shoes without socks and wearing them with socks.
Thanks again for helping Seamus be comfortable and enjoy his trail rides again. I have recommended the boots to a client of mine with draft X who was just diagnosed with a fractured ringbone and chip for a cushioning effect while it heals.”
Cheers and Stay safe 🙂
