This is how it all started.

A few weeks ago, we received a request from Hawaii.. Aloha Carole

My name is Lori and I work for the Mayor of Honolulu. The May or has been riding my horses in various parades and the rule the parades have is that every horse needs to be shod. It's so frustrating to deal with these archaic views and policies. They are stating that the heat of the asphalt is detrimental to the hooves.  image4

Mahalo, Lori

This was not the first time this issue has come across to us at Cavallo.    Of course there is the consideration of significant heat conduction and transference from metal shoes on asphalt. Have they ever seen the sparks fly when metal hits that surface or even rocks on the trail at a speed?

What about the benefits of protection that our Cavallo soles would provide?

There are not studies available, but I can tell you from experience our Cavallo soles do not transfer as much heat as metal. And if you 'compare apples to apples', the benefits of a properly functioning hoof that bears weight and encourages blood circulation is far superior to what happens to a shod horse moving on a hard surface. Here we do have studies! The University of Zurich in Switzerland conducted a study determining that 800 Hz frequency travels up the shod horses’ structure at a trot on asphalt.  This amount is enough to kill live tissue, both within the hoof itself and further up the horse’s structure.image2

Obviously I offered The Mayor some boots. And here’s the response from Lori below:

Our Aloha Festivals 70th Annual Parade was this weekend and the Mayor of Honolulu rode my horse, Misty. As I mentioned before, she has never been shod before so boots were being allowed as a compromise. Your boots worked absolutely perf ectly!! They all stayed in place and did not rub her at all.img_0661 They actually blended in perfectly and looked so natural. I thank you very much for your support and WONDERFUL boots!! Mahalo, Lori Kahikina All’s well that ends well.

Mahalo! A Testimonial from Hawaii

I just love my Cavallo Western All-Purpose Saddle Pad! I use the same pad on both my Tennessee Walker and my Quarter Horse; it's unusual that you can use one pad that fits so well on different breeds. Right now I use the Nitrex side against the horses; the saddle doesn't move or roll from side to side when I'm mounting. I can ride for hours and my horse stays comfortable. Then the pad bounces right back into shape and adjusts to the next horse. I'm very particular about using clean saddle pads, not just for me but because the horses can feel the dirt. My Cavallo pad is so easy to clean. I just wipe the Nitrex side down with a cloth for immediate use or hose it down and it dries quickly. I've bought a lot of different and expensive saddle pads over the years and have never found one that I like so much as the Cavallo Saddle Pad! I'm very satisfied.
