Mounted Search And Rescue / Mounted Police
Cavallo offers special discounts to selected Mounted Search and Rescue and Mounted Police members throughout North America. These hard-working horses, booted with Cavallos, then receive the best protection through the rough terrain they often encounter. Enabling these horses to navigate as safely and sure-footedly as possible by offering them affordable access to Cavallos is our "Thank You". These people are often volunteers, willingly putting themselves in dangerous situations for the sake of others.
The Equine Advantage
On horseback, Search and Rescue riders have the physical ability to access places that a vehicle can not. Loud vehicle sounds, such as ATV motors, could drown out a call for help. With the unique advantage of the horse's natural ability to sense life around them, valuable signals are relayed from horse to rider. These clues can indicate the location or presence of a missing or injured person.
Many urban Mounted Units must ride on hard, aggressive terrain to be where they need to be. Cavallo Hoof Boots are used by mounted units to absorb the impact of hoof strike on hard ground, decreasing fatigue. This allows police horses to stay fresh and focus on their jobs at hand!If you see any Mounted Search and Rescue or police working hard out there on the trails or on the streets, remember to give them a great big smile for all they do for us!
I am thrilled with my SIMPLE Boots! As a recreational rider I can now ride the trails freely and comfortably over any terrain. Thanks for a great product.
Here are some pictures of me and my Finnhorse Simo in action with Simple hoof boots. As you can see, there is no problem for us to ride or drive with boots that have studs on. The picture was taken on a road that has thick snow on and underneath there is ice. But we had very good traction with studs. We wear boots during the winter everytime we do something with our horses. In the summertime we keep a pair of Simple boots hanging on the saddle everytime we go for a ride incase we get to a bad gravel road. We are VERY pleased with Simple boos, becuase they are so SIMPLE to use. I have rheumatic arthritis in my fingers and I don't have any problems putting the boots on or taking them off. The horses like to wear them and these boots STAY ON!
