Testimonials

Cavallo Sport boots did not come off! Tuesday (Aug 12, 2014) I went on a trail ride with my Rocky Mtn horse (Harley) wearing his front Cavallo Sport boots, which had 20+ miles on them at this point. We had received 3-4 inches of rain in the 3 days prior so the terrain was VERY muddy. We crossed many muddy areas where they sunk almost to their knees. At the worst point of the ride, we encountered a large tree that completely blocked the trail. The only way we could find to get around without turning around and backtracking for a couple of hours was to dismount and walk the horses through a soft grassy area into a Rhododendron patch and back across another soft grassy area. My horse, Harley, and I went through first. Unfortunately the grassy areas turned out to be muddy bogs. The first area Harley sunk up to his knees. The second area Harley sunk in almost to his belly. Thankfully he managed to get through on his own. And amazingly his Cavallo boots stayed on!! In fact, his boots stayed on the entire ride. There was only one time I dismounted to refasten the strap on each boot that had come undone after crossing mud. I wanted you to know how well these boots have been working in very difficult situations.

Cavallo Green Black Trek Hoof Boots Review.2

A Question I'm Often Asked...

What is Merry wearing on her feet? Recently, I've received a few comments on my photographs asking about Merry's boots. The answer?  Cavallo Hoof Boots!
I keep Merry barefoot; it suits our lifestyle perfectly. The most important reason why? Her comfort - and the positive side effect is that she isn't ripping shoes off with parts of her hoof wall.

Barefoot and No Going Back!

Cavallo Green Black Trek Hoof Boots Review.4The more I learn about keeping Merry barefoot, the more it confirms it is the right decision for us. Merry is ever so slightly pigeon toed, when she was initially shod she would rip her shoes off and we eventually had more glue than hoof. This was the first reason that I realized shoeing Merry was not right for her.  Now she's barefoot her feet look fantastic. Merry has been barefoot for 99.9% of the time that I have owned her. When she arrived I had her shod.  Her feet were a bit of a mess and I automatically thought having her shod was the answer.  I was wrong, and unfortunately it made them worse - a lot worse.  My heart would sink when she would walk into the yard, minus a shoe and lots of hoof wall missing.

Looking Hard for the "Cons"...

Cavallo Green Black Trek Hoof Boots Review (2)Over time, I've learnt about the anatomy of the hoof, the pros of keeping her barefoot, (I've not found any cons I have to admit) and how the foot flexes and absorbs movement. When Merry is ridden regularly over the Summer, her feet condition nicely.  However, we continue to use our Cavallo Trek Boots because they offer Merry protection from any terrain or distance - and when we arrive home and untack - we can just take them off.  Her feet are checked and trimmed accordingly every 6 - 7 weeks to make sure they're in good shape and to avoid any flares or cracks occurring - which has never happened. Merry has hoof boots on all four feet to give her maximum protection whilst hacking, I take extra care of her feet because she has had Laminitis in the past (before I owned her) and we had White Line Separation to overcome when she arrived with us.

It's About Comfort

I keep Merry as comfortable and natural as I possibly can. Keeping her barefoot is just one way of achieving that.  It works brilliantly for us, her feet have never looked so good and we don't feed any supplements or use any 'lotions or potions'.  It's down to mother nature with a helping hand from our Cavallo Hoof Boots.........  -Sarah Kirk, Blogger at Multiple Sclerosis, Merry & Me Sarah is a blogger and lives in the UK.  To view her Facebook page, please click HERE!
