Weekend Riding
So with work and all, I don't ride as much as I should or want to. Leaving my guys barefoot was the affordable option and knowing that I can slip these on when I do go for a ride is better for the hooves than shoeing all the time. They stay on and I rinse them out when done.

I wish I had ordered a smaller size
My horses feet are 5" long, 4.5" wide. I ordered a size 3 slim and at first they fit really well, besides being a little too wide. He was getting rocks in them and would take lame steps until I dismounted and dumped the rocks. I decided that he must be kicking them in with his back feet so I use bell boots over the Cavallos which definitely helps to keep the larger rocks out but we still occasionally get smaller pebble sized rocks and I don't know if they are getting in around the top of the bell boots or in through the rather large drainage holes on the sides of the boots. I have only had these boots for 3 months and we have put about 300 miles on them and they are almost completely worn out in every way. The leather in the back of the boot around the heals seems to have stretched out and when I put the boots on there is about an inch of space in front of his toe and he still measures 5". They say on average these last 1 to 2 years, sometimes longer, which I find hard to believe.

Would recommend the Cavello boots to anyone who does a lot of trail riding.
i bought these boots to try to save a little money on shoeing every 6 weeks and they have exceeded my expectations. First hr trail ride and no rubbing or coming off. 2nd 3 hr trail ride on rocky and root laden trails and they were amazing. My horse seemed happier too. There was not one rub or sore mark on his heels. They go on super easy and easy to take off. Just rinse the mud off and you are good to go on the next trail. They fit snug but no rubbing. I'm definately impressed and will continue to use them. I don't foresee them wearing out anytime soon, very well made.

Excellent Boots
This is my second pair of boots for my horse. The first pair I bought a bit too big only because I miss measured. These boots on the other hand fit perfectly and no more ouchy feet.
October 13, 2015
Comfy for my horse and me!
These boots are so new, I don't know what the wear/life of them will be. But on his hind feet, they sure make my horse comfortable on the trail! It makes a huge difference and I'm noticing they help maintain good condition for his hooves.

Good Boot
I found the boot a little larger than expected.It rubbed my horse's back pastern.Overall comfortable, but be sure of the fit.Easy to put on the horse.
November 12, 2014
Very easy to apply to the feet.
I am a veterinarian and I do not like what the repeated use of metal shoes do the structure of the equine foot. Our busy life schedule would hinder us from getting ahold of a farrier that wouldn't just quickly tack the shoe in place, and if I actually got hold of someone that did a good job then I would forget how long the shoes had been on and it would rip off good hoof wall. We have been natural hoof proponents for several years. I have many Epic Bare and Easy boots that have spent many miles in rocky terrain and water in several states. The Cavallo boot is just easier to put on and for the most part stays on. We recently lost on e (Cavallo) in a very high fast water river crossing, but on same trail the Easy boot came off twice on the trail. Riding with several other people that have tried several different kinds and they agree CAVALLO is the way to go. I like Epic but CAVALLO better.

Looks good
If I can ever get the correct size, I think these will be just fine. I have had to return the size 4's and get a 2. Returning them has been difficult because of having to wait for them to recieve the old ones, then they have to refund the $ on my CC. The sizes run large and the size chart said to get a size 4...they were way too big. Farrier says get a 2. Seems like a high quality product.

Awsome
I bought both the sport and the simple boot for my horse. For sizing I took advantage of the free sizing chart pdf that horse.com provided and was thrilled that the boots fit perfectly. My mare is fine boned so we included pastern wraps with our order. They stayed on through some of the hardest trail rides my friend and I could think of including galloping and hill climbing. The cavallo boots out performed my friends Ez boot epics so well that she is now ordering 2 pairs for her horse as we use them front and back

Easy to use Product
I purchased a pair of these boots for my Mustang a little over a year ago. It took her a few minutes to get used to them, then we were off.The only thing is, she has recently worn out the left "Pony Nike." I wish that there was a way to just purchase one if needed and not a pair at a time.Thanks MuchJoAnnne

Based on reviews, it sounds as if this closure is more durable than the traditional velcro closures

Darin L on Aug 27, 2018
I have Cavallo simple boots and they are ok, the velcro straps come off in mud. These have a different closure style so I am going to try these for my mare who is tender footed. I prefer boots to shoes as I like the natural hoof expansion and after years of use they have saved me alot of money. My farrier supports the use of Cavallo or Mac boots, he trims and balances and we always make sure the boots fit afterwards. These do not replace regular trimmings, they just replace shoes.

I love the way my horse responded to wearing the Regular Cavallo sport boots that I purchased earlier this year so I pulled the shoes on my other horse and ordered a pair to fit her.
Sarah N on Sep 14, 2016
Borrow a pair from my friend and my tender footed horse loved them on the trail. The reviews were super helpful.

Because they are a good product and fill our needs.
Robin H on Jan 7, 2016
For now it was based on others review comments. I actually just purchased mules rode horsed as my dad would since I was knee high to a grasshopper. So we will see how they work as the mules are gaited. The one I bought these for his mama was a Tennessee Walker.

price and ease of use. they were sold in a pair

My daughter's horse came to us shod but I prefer barefoot so we wanted to keep her comfortable during trail rides.
Shannon G on Apr 10, 2014
I like to trail ride, and we sometimes come upone rocks, I dont want to shoe my horse, so I thought I would try the boots
Bettie W on Feb 13, 2014
Use as spare boots in case of losing one on teh trail as well as for turnout when shoes are pulled in fall.

How do we properly measure our horses feet to ensure we're buying the right size for them?
Nikki R on Sep 18, 2014
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?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2013
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?

How do these boots work for horses with shoes?
August O on Jun 26, 2015
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
are these sold in pairs?
kathryn G on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, they are sold as a pair (two boots total)
Is the cost for 1 hoof boot or a pair?

The rule for slim is; hoof width is 1/4" more narrow than hoof length. My horse measures 5 1/2" length and 4 3/4" width...3/4" more narrow in width. How does that affect correct fit of the hoof boot? Will I be able to use them with a 3/4" difference between width/length?
linda f on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These boots are sold in pairs.
Sole width is 1/4" narrower than the length on these Slim Soles. First please double-check (always recommended!) the measurements by tracing closely around the hoof as the horse stands on heavy paper or non-corrugated cardboard. Unfortunately it's not possible to be certain over the phone or Internet. To increase your chances of success, you may wish to consult Cavallo directly at 877-818-0037.
Is this price for one?
Joe L on Mar 27, 2015
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?
tamdwells on Dec 16, 2014
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?
Julie S on Nov 27, 2014
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.
can you use the boots on barrel racing horses or just trail riding?
JOANN J on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My question is are you asking if you could use them in the arena for a run? Other than traction I don't quite understand why use metal shoes! I would probably run barefoot! My concern would be fast turns and that boots were tight! From a navicular aspect the boots in my opinion would help ones that have it!
I can fit two fingers in the front of each Sport slim hoof boot. They were snug getting on and don’t shift when he walks. I have had two other styles of hoof boots and neither were like this. Is this how they are supposed to fit?
Deanna S on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: not sure, but I would contact the manufacturer. They will have someone experienced in fitting to speak with.
If I get only one pair, would they be best used on the front or back legs?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2015
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?
Vicki S on Jul 6, 2015
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.
Are these available for minis' and donkeys?
kathy s on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately these are not available in the mini or donkey sizes at this time.
My horse is measuring exactly 5.5 inches from toe to heel. This puts me right in the middle of two sizes...which one should I get? I am thinking a size bigger to allow some hoof growth but I also don't want them too big. Thanks!
ASHLEY J on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If in-between two sizes, choose the larger size.
