Reaching the four corners of the world with Cavallo Hoof Boots

Chika from Japan met Cavallo Hoof Boots at Equitana

Greg Giles, Cavallo Hoof Boots CEO, was recently approached by Chika at Equitana in Melbourne, Australia. Intrigued to find a true barefoot enthusiast from Japan, Greg asked how she came to her decisions about hoof boots. Barefoot and the use of hoof boots is not common practice in Japan. Chika said she never liked the idea of nailing metal to her horse and she wanted to do better.  So, she fired up her computer, hit the internet and put in the time!

Chika researched thoroughly and then watched every single video on our You Tube channel!   When I approached the conversation, she surprised me by yelling out “CAROLE!”. She recognized me from watching the instructional videos. We had a laugh about it, and she explained how her journey led her to get on a plane and come out to Melbourne to secure her new Cavallo hoof boots for her horse. Can you imagine? Wow. I just have a mountain of admiration for her commitment and her diligence in caring for her horse’s hoofs.

The top photo is Chika at Equitana with our favorite horsemen, Dan James and Dan Steers from Double Dan Horsemanship. When Chika got back to snowy Japan, she sent us this photo. It must have been an adjustment from the Australian heat! Dear to our hearts are Chika and her beloved 4-leggeds.
