This one really touches my heart because it is not only about the little mini horse, but it's about the service these kids are passionate to provide and the people who will be helped along the way.Hope Reins rescues horses from all sorts of situations and these horses become part of the free programs aimed at helping people connect with the horses. Often people have their own “hurts” and working with the horses helps humans to find hope and healing. Hope Reins is entirely run by volunteers and relies on donations in order to provide the service it does to horse and human alike. When Pippa was rejected by her mother at birth the stress caused her to develop laminitis, a very painful condition where the hoof wall and the inside hoof capsule (which are normally glued together with stuff called laminae) seperate. The folks at Hope Reins had hoped to find some boots to help Pippa walk more comfortably. When Cavallo Cute Little Boots were fitted to Pippa's front and hind hooves she quickly realized that the boots felt good, REALLY GOOD! Now Pippa is able to go out on the town! With the complete hoof protection provided by her Cavallo CLB’s they can walk her and train her to be in crowds and in different situations.
Hope Reins' goal is for Pippa to go into parades, as well as visit schools and nursing homes to make people’s day brighter, to bring them happiness and also to educate people on how amazing horse are at helping heal hurting human hearts.
Hope For Pippa
Connie Challice - A Barefoot Trimmer and a Winner!Connie Challice is an accomplished barefoot trimmer located in the Calgary, Alberta, area. She's a believer in natural hoof care and she walks the talk . All of her horses are barefoot, with exceptionally healthy hoofs. She enjoys the freedom of being barefoot & booted and she enjoys an active, equestrian lifestyle.
The Calgary Stampede was Calling...This July, Connie and her crew had a vital role to play at the Calgary Stampede. They were asked to provide teams of horses for the Stampede Parade. Their carriages toured national, provincial, and city politicians. They also had the honour of touring esteemed veterans in their wheelchair-accessible wagon. Connie, herself, drew the RCMP and First Nations dignitaries in their Vis-a-vis carriage.
Cavallo Roped in the Crowds!The Cavallo BFB and ELB Bling Hoof Boots recently roped in the parade crowds! Connie sent us a message after, telling us about how well the boots worked to keep the horses comfortable, safe and grounded on the slick asphalt during the parade: “We had a team of Suffolk Punch horses (Jack and Flame) driven at the 2019 Calgary Stampede parade. They are an older team, and Flame has a little arthritis - after pavement work, he can sometimes seem sore. This has changed with the Cavallo BFB Boots and Pads, he's able to do many miles and remains comfortable. We all are grateful for this. It makes so much sense to have a comfortable option that helps absorb the shock of the pavement. Luke, our 8-year-old Clydesdale, was wearing Cavallo BFB's under his feathers and they were absolutely amazing for the whole event; he was even comfortable on the crushed road gravel. Altogether, we provided 11 teams of horses for the parade this year. Almost all of the teams were either bare or booted and had no traction problems at all - even on the wet pavement!" -Connie
Because Cavallo LOVES a Challenge!By request, BFB was developed to meet the needs of carriage/driving, working and pleasure drafts, as well as those in need of a boot during periods of hoof rehabilitation. Producing a hoof boot that could support the weight and activity of animals weighing around a ton was no simple task for us! Technically advanced materials are selected to withstand intense weight and pressure in repetitive motion and be counted on to provide shock absorption and weight distribution.
Coming Soon - New Sizes of Cavallo BFB Draft Hoof Boots!At Cavallo, we're announcing another new development. Coming Soon - new Sizes of Cavallo BFB draft Hoof Boots! Currently in production are two new sizes to accommodate the Big Horse population. Sizes 7 and 9 will be added to Cavallo’s draft-size range of BFB (Big Foot Boots) and are expected to hit the U.S market in early 2020.
