From age 10 Mr Seeley had been shoeing horses. He developed a great respect, sensitivity and understanding for all breeds and their respective purpose and way of going. Most horses had the common assortment of problems. Reconstructions, resections, treating founder and laminitis were common practice. Lynn understood how the hoof affects the entire horse and went on to improve their well being through removing metal shoes and trimming barefoot horses to health and soundness. Now with over 60 years of practice, Lynn shares his gentle trimming method through this illustrated manual and accompanying DVD hosted by Carole, President and Founder of Cavallo. This manual should be in every horse woman and man’s library either as reference for yourself or as guidance for your Trimmer.
I recently ordered a pair of Simple boots for my Australian Stockhorse stallion. Past injury has resulted in excessive heel growth (and very little toe growth) on one front foot - which causes him to move unevenly. It also means that he has more round or square feet, rather than elongated. I did a lot of research into the various types of boots available to find one that would fit his type of hooves. Correcting this is an uphill battle as we have very hard ground and he constantly wears his toes - more on the one side. The Cavallo boots fit beautifully and now I have a horse that moves so evenly - it was like riding a completely different horse!

Cantata is doing super and is completely barefooted after rehabbing in her SIMPLE Hoof Boots, both in her yard and on pasture during the day and on romps with the geldings when she is out. I was so pleased to be able to see almost daily improvement when she was put into her SIMPLE Boots for pain relief. She very quickly resorted to lying down less and less during the day when she had her boots on.
