As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

For use with the Cavallo Simple Boots, these removable gel inserts are made from a specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer to provide additional comfort, extra cushioning, greater shock absorption, sole, bar and frog stimulation, increased circulation, to minimize fatigue, and to tighten fit. Simply cut the pattern to your Simple boot size and insert into boot. One size fits all. Pair.

    Cavallo Simple Boot Gel Pads is rated 3.625 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Fitting Issues Bought these for a pair of Sport Boots I purchased for my gelding. The boots were still too wide for him, so I needed something to improve the fit until his heels widen. These inserts were great for making the boots fit more snug. The guidelines for trimming are for the Simple Boots, so you need to take more off of the sides of the heel for fitting into sport boots. I also bought the Cavallo pastern wraps which are fantastic.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted ONE ride..... I purchased these to put into my Cavallo Sport boots for extra cushioning. They are quite thin, fit in the boot easily once trimmed to size, and my horse seemed to like them. However, after exactly ONE ride, the heel portion of one of the pads was ripped/worn through in two places. And my horse does not have sharp edges to his feet, so I have no idea what happened. Now I am using the Easyboot comfort pads and those are holding up much better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to give a star rating I couldn't give an accurate rating for this product because I couldn't use the pads. My horse's feet were quite sore when his shoes where removed for the winter. I got the gel pads to add to his boots, hoping it would make him more comfortable on the gravel road. However, the feel must be weird for him because he refuses to walk when the pads are in the boots. Its a great idea, just won't work for my gelding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cavallo Gel Pads I have used the boots for about 5 yrs. Theycome in handy to substitute for a lost show,stone bruise etc. The gel pad gives a littlemore cushion for the foot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Somewhat effective My mare has sore feet, so for many reasons we pulled her shoes and she is wearing Cavallo boots for part of each day. The first set of gel pads got warn through around her hoof edge in about 35 days. I ordered more and will try using two in each boot to help fill space as the boots are a tad too big.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They do the job! My big mare has had some problems with the ligaments to her coffin joint, and after pulling her shoes for a period of rest we got some Cavalo boots and gel pads. They are great! They say on, she likes them, so far so good. I take them off each evening to dry and put them back on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not gellin I purchased these to use instead of another pad thinking that since they were a gel pad that they would be softer and more pliable. But they are very hard with no give and my horse hated them. I pulled them out and tried them on a different horse and he hated them too. If I would not have cut them down to fit my boots, I would have returned them. Very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They really help My horse's front feet had chipped and broken up badly and needed to grow out before being reshod. The Cavallo Simple boots kept him from damaging the hoof wall further, but adding the pads really kept him more comfortable - he was able to run and play without getting sore.
