Cavallo designed the new Comfort Sleeve to provide your horse with additional protection while using Cavallo Hoof Boots. Easy to use, with an adjustable fit, the Comfort Sleeve can be used with any style of Cavallo Hoof Boot. Simply pull the sleeve on over the hoof and onto your horse’s pastern and fasten the adjustable hook and loop closure strap.
Similar to Cavallo’s well-known Pastern Wraps, the Comfort Sleeves offer an extra layer of protection for your horse’s bulb and pastern area when you ride, when going on an extra-long ride, for horses who are extra-sensitive, or when breaking in a new pair of Cavallo Hoof Boots. Made with elasticated 100-percent cotton for total comfort and ribbed for a contoured fit, these sleeves are made to stay put.
Keep in mind that there may be an initial break-in period required to soften the leather on your horse’s new boots. Like your own riding boots, it is recommended that you allow time to gradually break in the hoof boots-- so that they may take the shape of your horse’s individual hoof. The first day you get your new Cavallos, first put the Comfort Sleeves on, and let your horse wear their new boots for about 20 minutes (during turnout or riding). If no signs of sensitivity are seen, increase the time of wear by 20 minutes each day until the backs of the boots customize to your horse’s bulb area. Then the boots are fully broken in.
Horse’s hooves, hides, thickness, bulb sensitivity and conditioning can vary, so please monitor the wear and increase time in the boots as appropriate. You can speed up the break-in process by using a leather softener of your choice and/or riding through water.
The Cavallo Comfort Sleeves are sold in pairs, and one size fits all. To clean and restore them back to their original shape, just pop them in the washing machine and hang or lay flat to dry. MSRP, $19.95.
