Cavallo’s Carole Herder Hits the Road to Offer Hoof Education

Join Cavallo President Carole Herder as she teaches about hoof care around the world during her Fall 2019 travels. She presents in British Columbia, Canada, Massachusetts, USA and Auckland, New Zealand to teach about the benefits of barefoot horse care.

“I'm hitting the road because I have a mission, and I have to show up to tell you about it,” Herder says. “I need to inspire and improve our lives with horses. When I work from home, I make posts, do videos and blog and write and try to support you as best I can, but the best thing is coming out to be with you, in person, for real.”

Mane Event 

Herder started her presentation schedule close to her home and the Cavallo offices last weekend. This year’s Chilliwack event offered clinics and a Trainer’s Challenge:

“My first stop was the Mane Event in British Columbia October 25-27, 2019,” Herder says. “I spoke about laminitis and overall hoof care. I was also at our Cavallo booth during the show and met so many great people who I chatted with about my most-loved topic – hoof boots!

“This bustling show is a yearly favorite. Greg, Jenny and I are excited each year to see the folks from Back Country Horsemen of British Columbia, Horse Council British Columbia, and the Okanagan School of Natural Hoof Care. We also met up with Robert Eversole, the Trailmeister ( He spoke and shared his vast knowledge of North America's trails, and his experience as a back-country rider.

“During my presentations, I shared my experience accumulated throughout the world with industry experts. I presented studies of hoof care, the barefoot movement, and hoof boot development, highlighting various real-life stories of riders and horses affected by this revolution over the past dynamic decade. I answered the pertinent questions regarding hoof transition, hoof care, the application of hoof boots and show you how to help horses of your own, as well as those of friends and community around you.”

Equine Affaire 

November in Massachusetts means Equine Affaire. Herder will visit and present at the West Springfield event from November 7-10, 2019 (

“I'll be talking about beautiful, balanced, and bodacious hoof boots! Here I’ll have a horse with me so you can see how he travels and how easy it is to use Cavallos. My husband (Cavallo CEO and most excellent man) Greg will be with me at the Valley Vet Booth (find it in the 500 aisle: 514/516). We’ll be having fun with Valley Vet's lovely and super-delightful Kathy Klover, so please stop by to say howdy!”


From November 21-24, 2019, Herder travels to Equitana Auckland (

“This invitation gave me a great reason to visit gorgeous Auckland, New Zealand!” Herder says. “I'm tackling the difficult issue of Laminitis in one of my educational sessions. The title of my talk? ‘Laminitis is Like Ripping Velcro.’ Does it make you squirm? It should! Laminitis is, by far, one of the most feared hoof ailments and affects horses in every corner of the globe. If your horse becomes affected, why not challenge it head-on, armed with knowledge and without fear? Here's where I come in! I've tailored this presentation for the non-professional horse owner for the prevention, understanding, and treatment of laminitis. Let's create an action plan together. Although Laminitis can inflict merciless agony and is potentially fatal, it IS curable with proper, realistic, and appropriate information.”

“In my second presentation, I'll be offering participants a chance to ‘Take the Horse Health Quiz.’ Twelve intriguing questions will help you discover your strengths and uncover areas that may require improvement. I'm also excited to be giving each participant a gift. 'Tis almost the season. Well, it's ALWAYS a good time for generosity.”

Cavallo’s Start

Herder is excited to share her knowledge about hoof care. She’s passionate about horse health and educating others.

“I started Cavallo Horse & Rider Inc. in 1993 when I designed and developed the Total Comfort System Saddle Pads to address the other 'hot spot' for horses ridden under saddle.

“I'm also excited to have published my latest book, Hoofprints on The Journey. And here's what Monty Roberts and Pat Parelli have to say about my first book, There Are No Horseshoes in Heaven. It’s acclaimed as a #1 International Bestseller. I write because I care. I love this industry, and I genuinely hope to meet you one day.”

Monty Roberts says of Herder’s first book, “A beautifully written story of a kindred spirit’s journey through life, discovering ways to leave the world a better place for horses and people too.”

Pat Parelli says, "This lovely book is a must-read. It's all about never-ending improvement- not only for the sake of our four-legged partners but for ourselves."

Herder hopes to share her knowledge and books with you. “If you're in Chilliwack, Springfield, or Auckland, be sure to visit! I promise you'll have fun and come away with a bright, new outlook about caring for your horse! We wish you a future full of happy trails and happy hooves.”
