Jeffers equine person was very helpful. From my G2 size that my horse currently wears, she advised me on the Cavallo size. They fit perfectly. I changed brands because getting older, I want something easier to put on & take off. I don't think I would have picked the right size if I had gone by the Cavallo measuring chart. My horse is larger boned & this boot has a great fit around the lower part of his pastern. I talked with a Cavallo rep & she told me their boot fits larger boned horses. I had tried another easy applied brand & the wrap around & Velcro application were insufficient to encompass the hoof & stay on. I'll break these in then get a pair for his rear hooves. There are many wonderful fitting boots out there, but I found out that some of the snug, sleek boots require the hoof to be rasped down on a regular basis inbetween farrier visits. My horses feet are like steel to rasp. I'm not strong enough to do that so I'm going with boots that don't require extra grooming of hooves.
These boots are wonderful for paved roads, gravel roads and dry fields. While they stayed on through mud and water they are very slick on our mountain sides. They are so easy to take off and put on that I just take them off when I ride off road.
"Got My Horse Back"
My quarter horse has tenderness in his front right hoof, we couldn't ride on any rough terrain. With the 'Simple Boots' his pain is gone and we ride everywhere on every terrain and running at that. Thanks Cavallo!
If you ride on muddy trails, the outer velcro straps will come undone. The boot stays on but flap around.
"Love These Boots!"
These boots are easy to put on (tried the Old Macs) they stay on, I can clean them with a brush to get the crud out of the velcro. I have a lot of horses and have a few sizes so I don't have to keep shoes on everyone and my thin soled horses love them, move like totally different horses. You can even get corks to put in them for riding on ice.
I got a pair of these boots 2 years ago and have road many hours in the saddle with my Quarter horse.I ride about 3 to 4 days a week.Trails ,roads,water you name it.They are just now wearing out These are great boots.Very east to put on and off.
I purchased these for my horse, so he wouldn't have to be shod (retired from competition). Only 1 hour into a slow trail ride, I took them off. They had started coming apart. My horse does not over reach and that is not the reason for them to start failing. Would NOT recommend them for trail riders. Save your money, these are not worth the cost.
My horse has been bearfoot for 4 years I borrowed these exact type boots and my 22 year old tenderfooted, barefoot horse acting 99% better, younger, and happier all day on rocks and roots. I will buy a pair this week !!!
"Consider Old Mac Instead"
Got a pair of these boots for my daughter for x-mas last year. The first time we put them on we let the pony wear them in a stall overnight. The next morning, there was a missing metal loop for the velcro fastener. I was not happy but decided it probably wouldn't mess them up that much since the boots velcro in front and the outside loops just provide a little extra security. We went for a camping weekend and wore the boots on her pony during the first day ride. The next day the pony had bad rub marks on the backs of her feet (just above the hoof). I know the boots were the right size. I even had my farrier measure the pony's feet to make sure I was ordering the right size. I borrowed a pair of Old Mac boots from a friend. I am not sure of the size but they seemed a little big for my horse. Anyway, they worked great and there was not a single rub mark. I would not purchase another pair of Cavallo's but I would get a pair of Old Macs.
