Why did you choose this?
How do we properly measure our horses feet to ensure we're buying the right size for them?
Best Answer: Measure heel to toe & then widest part of foot. These boots worked for my QH who has a more elongated foot - oval - rather than round. Easy to put on & take off & easy to clean. Have not had any rubbing problems with them. & they do not come off unless you take them off. Overall very satisfied with them. I used them without the gel insert that is available separately..but I do like an insert.
can u use these shoes for boots for trial ridding?
Best Answer: With the Cavallo boots you are capable of all gaits. It is very important to break in the boots slowly to avoid heel and fetlock rubs and abrasions. Try increasing the wear time by 5 minute increments until you reach at least 30 mins. Any abrasions must heal completely before the boots can be wore again. You may also try gaiters, which can be purchased to protect the heel and fetlock. This may interfere with the boot size you bought.
My horse adapted to the boots well and the boots do not affect her gaits as a dressage horse. She did have an abrasion as I did not follow my own advice. Be sure to wash the boots after every use to help prevent abrasions. Good luck they are one solution. You might try Epona shoes as well.
How do you measure for these boots?
Best Answer: The measuring/size chart is available in the item description under Downloadable Resources.
How do these boots work for horses with shoes?
Best Answer: Hello August, Actually hoof boots are designed for the barefoot horse. I have never heard of anyone using them on a horse with shoes. If you are considering Cavallo boots, I strongly feel that the CavalloTrec is the best model. I have a sanctuary/rescue for horses and have all the Cavallo boot models, different sizes for all the horses. For me, I like the wearability and the fit of the Trek the best.I'm using the boots for turn out and riding and driving a Saddlebred. The Trec does not shift or turn and seems to offer the support that these horses in rehab need. Hope this helps! Best to you
Is this price for one?
Best Answer: No, for the pair. And I really like them better than than the sport if your horse tends to have more oval than round feet. Good luck!
would this style of boot work for a pigeon toed horse with a serious stone bruise on 1/3rd of the outer side of the right front foot?
Best Answer: Pigeoned toed won't matter. I have a Ten Walker that's bad. We use boots on her but fortunately her previous owner kept her trimmed every 6 wks and she doesn't always need boots. I will say that it is hard to get in right mind set when putting them on because you will want to straighten foot. You have to keep them in her alignment. As for the bruise, it should help as long as not rubbing.
Has anyone tried these on a gaited horse?
Best Answer: I have been using cavalier sport boots on my paso fino for 2 years now , I use the Pastern wraps and gel pads too. With the wet conditions his soles are thin so the protection is necessary. I do find that the horse does not gait as smoothly because the boots cause him to flex his front legs higher than if he is unbolted, but if he did not have them on he would be unridable on any hard surface or Stoney ground. The boots last about 1 year with moderate riding , I considers moderate to be 20 miles a week.
If I get only one pair, would they be best used on the front or back legs?
Best Answer: That depends on the horse. Most people use them on the front legs because a horse carries most of the weight on the front end.
Can you use these boots to train in while the hoof grows out or does dirt get in them?
Best Answer: I did light work with them and short trail rides, but nothing intense. It might also depend on what the hoof is growing out from. You would want to see how the horse worked on long lines or lunge line before you got on. Give them a chance to get comfortable. I wasn't worried about dirt getting in the boot. What little bit could would come out the bottom.
