Testimonials

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

Rainier Therapeutic Riding Connects with Cavallo to Go “Barefoot & Booted”

I just wanted to say thank you for these wonderful boots! I am still riding my 28 yr old TB mare because of them! She was originally my daughter's show horse - but when my daughter went off to college, Cassie stayed behind in semi-retirement. Unfortunately, as she aged, her already bad feet got worse fast - couldn't keep a shoe on her for more than a week. We decided to pull her shoes and let her move into retirement in the pasture (at just 20). After about 6 months of letting her feet grow out - it was obvious that after years of being ridden several times a week, she was fast growing bored (and getting into trouble). We tried multiple products to toughen up her feet enough to ride her, but no luck. About 5 years ago I discovered your Cavallo simple boot - and after one trial ride where we had to keep stopping to look at our feet , Cassie is now nicknamed "Cinderella " at the barn because of her obvious love of her "slippers"! I am back to riding her on a regular basis - we take nice long strolls through the woods - and not tree roots, pine cones, rocks or concrete phase her! Once her boots are on - she steps out strong and confident. We ride through puddles, mud, woods - we may have an occasional velco strap come loose, but the shoe itself never budges. I just ordered her a new pair (have a strap ready to wear all the way through) - in purple to match her diva personality! Thank you for giving me and Cassie many more years of strolling pleasure! P.S And my favorite thing about the simple boots – they are SIMPLE!! Slide on, stay on, keep them clean – and a new set of inserts about once a year – all that is needed! As soon as I start tacking Cassie up to ride, she starts picking up her front feet – wants to make sure I remember the slippers!
