By Carole Herder What is your favorite piece of horse equipment? What could you not do without? I think we all have that ‘essential’ tool, the ‘must have’ aid. Excluding your bridle and saddle (if you use them!), is it your hoof pick? Your long-lines? Your neck rein/strap? Your rasp? Your plaiting bands?? For many people, maybe not so much in the horse world, it is the Swiss Army Knife. Or maybe you don’t feel you need anything at all, like the wonderful Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, pictured here! An essential piece of equipment is one that aids you when in need, something that ensures you can get out of a difficult situation, a tool that is the only item to allow you to do a job. In this materialistic world, we often think things are essential when really they are quite unnecessary if it came to the crunch – “I have to have my lip gloss or my gloves or my soft brush...or my lead rope”. Horse hoof boots For me, my essential item has to be my hoof boots, and not just because I am President of the company! They are vital to my horse and to any horse I have in my care. Imagine going out on aggressive terrain, unlike the bedded stalls or grassy pastures of your home – and you forgot your shoes! Ouch! And now you actually have an additional 20% of your own weight (average weight of rider and tack is 200 pounds) on your back, so it’s pressing your tootsies even further into the terrain they are not accustomed to. Double Ouch! Would you go back home and get your sneakers on. You betcha. If a horse has just been freed from shoes, horse hoof boots will protect them. If they have sensitive feet, my horse is protected. How about when travelling two horses together who are unfamiliar with each other? Hoof boots can cover their hooves and protect legs from kicks. Breeding? Hoof boots, again, protect. Need more traction when riding on difficult terrain? Cavallo hoof boots help. During rehabilitation or recovery from foot conditions, horse hoof boots are great for soaking, keeping bandages on and protecting from dirt and mud. They really are the number one piece of equipment for me.

Needful Things

Pippa

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.
