Biggest Congratulations to Gabriella Lynn!The Western Kentucky University (WKU) Equine Science Department recently released study results confirming Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots benefit horses. Now, the student researcher responsible for the study, Gabriella Lynn is in the spotlight again. She has been awarded a scholarship to London’s Royal Veterinary College (RVC). There, Lynn will pursue a joint undergraduate and veterinary degree. The RVC was ranked number one in the world for veterinary sciences by QS World University Rankings in 2019. A completed degree from the RVC will enable Lynn to practice veterinary medicine anywhere in in North America and Europe.
A Contributor to Equine WellnessA current WKU student, Lynn is graduating from WKU’s Gatton Academy. Only one full scholarship is awarded per year by the RVC. Lynn focuses on equine comfort, well-being, and health as an important motivator for her research projects. Through her recent studies and research findings, Lynn has become a significant contributor to the improvement of equine health and wellness.
Looking at Hoof Boots from a Scientific PerspectiveLynn authored an independent WKU study in 2019. This hoof boot study led to the conclusion that Cavallo Hoof Boots benefit horses. It was carried out by Lynn and WKU Assistant Professor, Dr. Jennifer Gill, through the Western Kentucky University Equine Science Department. The first study of its kind, it compared hoof boots to traditional metal shoes. Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots were featured as the study subject—and results confirmed that Cavallo Hoof Boots benefit horses by providing comfort, protection and minimizing potential hoof damage. The findings? Hoof boots significantly reduce pressure on the hoof. This study focused on surface area, force, and pressure exerted on horse’s hooves while traveling on the hard surface of asphalt. The scientists used FujiFilm Prescale imaging to determine the amount of pressure felt in the horse’s hooves. This film procedure allowed the scientists to see dynamic pressure through color mapping.
Best Wishes to GabriellaCavallo wishes Lynn all the best and everyone at Cavallo is looking forward to hearing about Lynn’s future accomplishments in the equine world!

Student Researcher Receives Scholarship to Royal Veterinary College Following Cavallo Hoof Boot Study
I am thrilled with my SIMPLE Boots! As a recreational rider I can now ride the trails freely and comfortably over any terrain. Thanks for a great product.
Here are some pictures of me and my Finnhorse Simo in action with Simple hoof boots. As you can see, there is no problem for us to ride or drive with boots that have studs on. The picture was taken on a road that has thick snow on and underneath there is ice. But we had very good traction with studs. We wear boots during the winter everytime we do something with our horses. In the summertime we keep a pair of Simple boots hanging on the saddle everytime we go for a ride incase we get to a bad gravel road. We are VERY pleased with Simple boos, becuase they are so SIMPLE to use. I have rheumatic arthritis in my fingers and I don't have any problems putting the boots on or taking them off. The horses like to wear them and these boots STAY ON!
