Testimonials

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

Laura Pope's horse in Cavallo Trek Hoof Boots
"Hi Cavallo! Laura Pope's horse in Cavallo Trek Hoof BootsI ride in our Denman Provincial Park (we have a multi-use trail system on our trails - aren't we so lucky!) and I feel good that my horses are not leaving pock marks or deep marks like the horses that are shod. I feel that this is an added positive to using boots on trails. It also goes a long way with the parks planners when you can show that your horses are not leaving any damage on the trails. For those back country riders and shared trails users, this can mean the difference between being allowed onto a shared trail system or not. I have had some great conversations with people I meet on the trail who ask "What is that on your horses feet!" I can then explain that they have their own hiking boots.
I have been using Cavallo boots on my horses since you started up. I've used them on my small-footed horses (size 1 to 3) and I used them on my half-draft mare (size 5).
 
Laura Pope - Horse in Cavallo Hoof BootsI've used both the Simple Boots and have recently (in the last 8 years) been using the Trek. I LOVE these boots. They go on easy, they last and last and my horses really do ride differently and more confidently when they have the boots on. With the Trek,it is perfect that you send an extra velcro tab as that is the only part that needed any attention after many happy miles on the trails on Denman Island, BC.   Happy trails, Laura Pope Denman Island
