Cavallo Hoof Boots: Designed to Stay On Horses’ Hooves

Cavallo Horse & Rider ( President Carole Herder designed the brand’s hoof boots to mimic the natural shape of horses’ hooves. The conical shape matched with industrial-strength Velcro prevents boots from coming off when sized and fitted well–leading Cavallo to have the ultimate staying power.

“Cavallo Boots enclose the entire hoof and protect the bulb area,” Herder says. “Both the tongue—which can be adjusted to the angle of the hoof—and the soft leather collar also serve to hold the boot in place, even on a less-than-perfect hoof. In short, Cavallos stay on—on almost every hoof type.”

Quality Materials

Cavallo’s hoof boots are designed with a gripping sole and an upper that fits over the horse’s heel bulbs. Inside, the hoof boots form around the horse’s heel bulbs. The boots’ leather forms to fit each horse’s unique heel bulb structures and the boots have a soft foam lining to ensure the horse’s comfort. Think of high-quality leather shoes for humans–once the shoes break in and form to your foot, the fit is perfect. You can also speed up the break-in process by using leather conditioners or hot water. Click here to watch Herder’s video describing how to break in your horse’s boots:

Horse owners can customize the horse’s Cavallo boot fit by adding pads & wraps or sleeves to help the boots fit well and stay on–right after a hoof trim and until it’s time for the next trim. Shop all accessories here:

Mud is No Match

Why do the boots stay on so well in wet conditions? Herder says that the boots’ unique drainage system keeps the boot from creating a vacuum. With proper drainage, water and moisture leave the boot. Mud can’t suck the boot away from the hoof.

Put to the Test

Check out this video of Emmely Wulf riding her horse in Cavallo boots.

“When people in Norway tell Wulf that her Cavallo Boots are cute, but they bet she can’t go very fast, she simply boots up and flies past them at 40 miles per hour– letting them eat her dust!” her friends report.
