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'!).

Cavallo Simple Boots are multi-purpose hoof boots that are excellent for all-terrain hoof protection for the barefoot horse. Allows natural expansion of the hoof wall as well as increased blood circulation. Absorbs shock so your horse's legs don't need to! Also provides comfort for chronic pain, hoof sensitivity and helps with rehabilitation from injuries, abscesses, navicular disease, laminitis/founder, punctures, sole bruising and contracted heels. Adds protection during trailering and breeding and works great as a "spare tire" when a shoe is lost. Lightweight, simple to put on and remove, and stays securely on the hoof. Shaped for the natural hoof (needs no inserts or shims). Features:

  • Simple front fastening with industrial grade VELCRO® brand closures
  • Genuine leather upper
  • Mould-in back flap for bulb protection and abrasion resistance
  • Durable construction using waterproof thread, rustproof metal and high performance TPU outsole
  • Soft leather foam-filled collar
  • Outside tread pattern supports the hoof wall
  • All-terrain tread minimizes build-up of mud, sand and debris. Excellent traction while still allowing natural movement
  • Built-in sole relief: Raised inner rim takes pressure off sole, bar and frogs

Black.  Sold in pairs.  Sizes 1-6.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple but great I bought them a few weeks ago and they work great now that I have taken the shoes off I ride a lot and the road wears his hoofs down so i got them to keep from wearing the hoof too far down Love them

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Answer To My Problem! I keep my mare barefoot year-round, but her feet are tender, and whenever I rode over gravel or asphalt, I could tell she was hurting. She always hesitated before stepping onto the surface, and she tried to keep to the side of trails whenever possible, on the grassy part. I researched these boots before I decided to try them, and they were the answer! Once she found out her feet no longer hurt, she was willing to go anywhere. Trail riding was pleasant for both of us again! They are a little tough to get the right fit at first, even with careful measuring (although SmartPak was VERY accommodating while I tried different sizes---thanks!), but once I had the right size, I was very pleased with them. They are easy to put on, and stay put. I love these boots, and so does my mare!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these!! My tender footed mare needed protection when crossing crushed gravel. (I pulled her shoes when she was done racing and is now barefoot). I put these on and she walked up and down the gravel no problem! I first thought size 3 when measuring but way too big, so I ordered 2 and perfect! She's a Thoroughbred, 16.3hh with good size hooves. I had her freshly trimmed and the boots popped right on!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my horse at all I had sizing issues. I started with the 3's and they were too big. He clip clopped and the RF heels were rubbed. I remeasured his feet and the RF was smaller and required a size 2. I buckled and ordered a second pair of boots so I could put the 2 on his RF. I could not get the 2 on him at all, it would not go over his heel. I gave up and returned them all. Back to the drawing board. :-(They seemed like nice enough boots, easy to get on etc. but just didn't work for my boy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoping they work I bought these boots with an unconventional use. My horse pulls his front shoes in the field no matter what combination or bell boots, combo boots, and over reach boots. The Cavallo boots fit great when he was due to be shod, but after he was done they were too big. He is inbetween sizes because the 2s were too small right after he was done. That is frustrating, but again I'm not sure they are meant to be used over shoes. He did step on the back of one of them the second time he wore them and gave it a "flat tire" like some one stepping on the back of your shoe. I think they would be better if they came up higher in the back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time boot owner I haven't had these long and have never tried boots before. My mare is barefoot with great feet but I wanted some extra protection for trail riding. I measured her feet and she fell into a size 3 range but ordered the 2 because some people said they ran big. I could not get the 2's on so returned (Smartpak was great) for a 3 and they fit perfectly. The literature does say that they should "pop" on and if you need to force them then they're too small. She didn't mind them first off but did seem to trot off funny for a few days until she got used to the feel. Very easy to put on and so far they stay on. I do think the velcro straps could be better - I feel I need to pull them tighter but can't! Cavallo was recommended by my farrier.
