The Cavallo range of horse hoof boots is renowned world wide.

The range includes Trek, Simple, Sport, Entry Level Boots, Cute Little Boots and Big Foot Boots.

The most important thing for a comfortable horse is getting the correct fit.

 

Measurements are ideally taken directly after a trim.

Clean the hoof with hoof pick and brush to remove all debris.

Length -Taken from the tip of the toe to the Buttress Line- where the outer hoof wall turns back towards the frog at the heel of the hoof.  Do not include the bulb of the heel in this measurement.

Width - Taken across the hoof from side to side at the widest point.

If the width is smaller than the length (an oval shaped hoof), then the fit of the boot will be a slim fit. If the width of the hoof is the same as the length, or up to one Cavallo hoof boot size larger than the length of the hoof, then the fit will be a regular.

 

It is often found that the hind hooves are narrower than the front hooves.  However, this is not a hard and fast rule.

 

It is recommended you stick to the same Style boot for left and right hooves on either front or hind feet.  For example have regular boots on the front two hooves and slim boots on the hind.

Choosing the Type of Boot

 When it comes to the decision of which boot type, there are many things to consider.

  • Do you want an all leather boot? If so you may want to look at the Simple boot.
  • Do you want to purchase single boots? If so you should be looking at either Trek or ELB boots.
  • Do you want a boot that tightens around the pastern for fine boned horses? Trek and ELB tighten best around the pastern.
  • Alternatively, do you want a wide boot to accommodate a lot of feather? You may want to look at the Simple or the Sport boots.
  • Worried about your horse's feet being too big for hoof boots? Check out the Big Foot Boots, the largest size accommodating a length of 182-189 mm.

 

Hints and Tips

  • We find that if you are on the cusp between two sizes the smaller of the two is usually the better fit.
  • Gel pads and Comfort Pads are available if you want some additional impact absorption in the base of the boot, ideal for horses recovering from hoof injury for example.
  • If you are trying boots for the first time and worried about rubbing around the collar, pastern wraps are available to provide additional protection in this area.
  • Like your own leather shoes the boots will mould to the shape of the horse’s hooves in time.  Wear the boots for limited time initially (about 20 minutes and then gradually build the time up) whilst they mould into the hoof shape and the horse becomes familiar with them.
