Have you ever noticed a difference in your horse on days when you’re feeling sad? Maybe he’s softer and quieter with you – it almost seems like he knows you’re upset. And the same can be true of days when you’re feeling on top of the world as you enjoy a canter across a field. Your horse might throw in an exuberant buck or two in his excitement.
Our horses’ backs must support our weight and help balance us as we ride. Whether you’re jumping a course or heading out on a trail ride, the simple act of being in the saddle means that you have a significant impact on your horse’s back. Luckily there are a number of ways that you can lessen your impact in the saddle.
It’s summer time and some of us are struggling with the conditions on our properties. If your area is very wet it can negatively affect your horse’s feet. Does mud on your farm seem to be a never-ending struggle? Mud can pull shoes off, negatively impact your horses’ hoof health, and can even make walking in your pastures a challenge. Try out these mud management tips around your farm to reduce and minimize mud.

It is with pleasure that I am announcing the first Birthday of our Cavallo Trek Boot!
It’s been a full year since you were first introduced to the new Trek Boot, by Cavallo. During Trek’s 1st year on the market, you’ve shown your overwhelming delight by providing some incredible feedback. Trek is now Cavallo’s most popular hoof boot – and here’s what you’re saying about it:
“We find the new Trek Hoof Boot to be a quality product that has been durable and easy to put on. The option of ordering a slim boot was helpful, especially for our horse’s narrower hooves. Our horse wears the Trek Slim Hoof Boot 24/7 on all 4 hooves. We go on trail rides, as well as do arena work with boots on. Also, the design of the replaceable Velcro strap is practical, as the Velcro usually is the first thing to wear out on boots. With the replacement strap design, simply replace the Velcro strap when it’s worn out.”
– Janice Wallace, Battle Ground, Washington
“Thank you so much for your sponsorship of Cavallo hoof boots for the Caravan transcontinental wagon trek. Our barefoot /booted horses are doing great!!! We have gone from California to San Antonio Texas and are currently taking a Christmas break. The boots are amazing and getting a lot of attention as any metal shod horses are only getting about two weeks of wear before needing replacements (even with borium welded on to preserve them) and our Cavallo boots have lots of miles left in them and we are still on the first pair.”
– Verne Kemble and Connie Challice, Indus, Alberta, Canada: The Transcontinental Wagon Ride
What makes the Trek Boot truly special is the TPU Pro Mesh upper – It’s made from the same material used to make the Cavallo Boot soles. This powerfully strong material is exclusive worldwide to Cavallo Hoof Boots. The TPU Pro Mesh upper was created by combining technologically advanced materials – enabling Cavallo to offer your horse the best abrasion resistance and shock protection possible. So don’t hold back – Trek Boots enjoy a challenge! This means you and your horse can ride with safety and confidence that your boots will hold up through any terrain you put them through. Breathable, tear proof and incredibly strong, no glues or adhesives are used in production. And Pro Mesh is wonderfully easy to care for…simply brush, shake or hose off if required.
More Features Offered by the Cavallo Trek Boot:
– Ride a lot? If your Trek Velcro replaceable straps become fatigued, just switch them out to elongate the life of your boots. An extra strap is included with each Trek Boot, giving you the most value for your money.
– Soft, flexible, cushioned collar provides ultra comfort for your horse.
– Ride at night? Trek boots have highly visible reflectors on the front and back for extra safety if you’re caught out after dark.
– Honeycombed design optimizes strength and minimizes weight – making Trek a very lightweight boot.
– The signature Cavallo drainage slots allow your horse surefootedness through any terrain. There is no buildup of mud or debris and boots never become weighted.
