Why We Love This

For horse owners still "nervous" about making the investment to "barefoot and booted" and those who are already barefoot but require protection on limited occasions, the Cavallo Entry Level Boot is the perfect solution!

The ELB upper material is 1680 count denier industrial grade nylon - the same material used for Cavallo Sport style hoof boots which have been tried and tested in all terrains since 2008. The replaceable Velcro extends the working life of the ELB in the event of felcro fatigue.

The ELB is also ideal for rehabilitation and therapeutic purposes , and it makes and excellent 'spare tire' for a lost shoe!

**Sold individually

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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!

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email We are always happy to help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cure for Tender Feet! I had the shoes taken off my 6 y.o. TWH mare before the Chicago area winter took hold. After the the snow turned to ice, then thawed and dried (temporarily), she developed tender front feet on the trail - probably from all the dislodged, loose gravel. I talked with friends that used over boots and decided to order the Cavallo ELB's from SmartPak. I measured her hoofs and ordered size 3's - perfect fit! (note that I measured her mid-way through her winter trim cycle, so, after a trim, I had to cinch them a little more). From our first ride with the ELB's, I could see the relief for my horse. She had no problem walking, gaiting, or loping in them. And they never showed signs of coming loose. She was over her tender feet in a week, and ready to go barefoot again. But I now put them on her whenever I see signs of tenderness returning. When another arctic blast hit our area later in the winter, I found that the ELB's were extremely slippery on snowy / icy ground. I called Smartpak to ask about studs for my ELB's. A SmartPerson told me that SmartPak didn't carry them, but Cavallo did. She even directed me to a link. I ordered the screw-in studs and installed them in the boots - Problem immediately solved! While other horses were slipping on the trails, my baby was prancing like a mountain goat. The studs are great! I realize that installation of studs invalidates the warranty, but I couldn't be happier with the boots - and the studs. NOTE: If you order the studs, you need to get them with the installation tool. You can't screw them in without it. OH yeah: No problem to use SMB's along with the ELB's (see photo). NOTE TO SMARTPAK: Please start carrying the Cavallo screw-in studs and installation tool!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studs for Winter Riding - Available for this Boot! I just ordered these boots. Haven't received them yet. But I wanted to share with other potential buyers during these cold winter months: I called Smartpak and spoke with a Smart Human (I love Smartpak!), on Sunday, no less. She helped me find where I can order screw-in studs (for wintry conditions) for these boots on-line - from the manufacturer. I'll write a follow-up review later, and if the studs work well (and I'm sure the boots will not be returnable / exchangeable after studs are screwed into them), I'll write a review of both and recommend that Smartpak carry these boot studs as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't get them on.... So, I had to return them. The uppers were too tall for my Arab. I bought them to replace a pair of Cavaullo Simple Boots, whose uppers are made of leather, which shrunk. The Entry Level's look well made. No pads which is a drawback and, they don't come in pairs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to size, but appear to be a good quality Okay, so I realize my horse might be the exception to the rule because he is still in the middle stages of rehabbing his feet and becoming barefoot, BUT after carefully following the printable chart, the size was way off what he is going to need. He is a 15.2 TB, and the chart indicated that he will be a 0 but that was way to small. I will return and try again since smartpak is so awesome about those things. A ton of people have recommended this boot for the quality and durability, so I am hopeful that I can figure out the right size for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves them! I got these because I recently moved my gelding to a pasture board facility that does not allow horses to have hind shoes. The pasture footing is really nice, so I only needed some help for the riding part until/if his feet adjust. I used their measuring guide and they fit really nicely (he has pretty narrow feet, so I was a little suspicious). Overall, I'm super impressed and am so glad I bit the bullet and purchased them! I can also tell my horse really likes them. I went on two trail rides in the snow this past weekend, one without the Cavallo boots and the second with them and he was much more confident with them! He's an older guy, so it made me so happy to feel him be spunky again :) 100% would recommend to anyone interested in an exercise boot for their horse. I have only had them for about a month, so I can't speak to how long and well they hold but personally. I have several other friends who have these boots and the upgraded versions, all still in great condition after years of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing invention!! First I bought a size to big so I ordered the next size down and they fit great. They went on just like the video showed. I can't wait to get out there on the trails. No more ouchy feet!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around boot I first bought a pair of these boots several years ago for a pasture horse with navicular. They have served me well for this purpose & I have since ordered more, even though the original pair still have not worn out. I recently tried them on my new horse to trail ride with as he has a wider foot than long. During the summer he gets tender footed, and I don't want to put shoes on him. I was concerned about using these for riding. They seemed sort of bulky & I ride through many different types of terrain. They are working fantastic! No rubbing and they stay on. Will be ordering more of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boots! I was very worried about protecting my barefooted Florida show horse while riding in North Georgia on vaca. These boots were absolutely perfect and did not cause him any discomfort or rubbing. My only issue was that he needed a full size smaller than I ordered. Luckily I ordered sizes 4 & 5 so it worked out fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for allowing feet to heal Boots were perfect to help a lame mare recover and still be able to go out with her stable mates.. They were great protection for her soles. You just have to make sure you put them on straight and tight enough that the horse doesn't run out of them..
    Date published: 2017-10-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm extremely pleased with these boots. I went on a 6 hour trail ride and had no problems with them. My only recommendation would be to use the mm measurement not the inches. I used inches and ordered the wrong size the first time I bought them.

    Date published: 2017-08-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works My OTTB gelding has a persistent bruising problem with his front feet. He can't wear shoes so, before the boots, I would have to practice my duct tape wrapping skills, which are marginal at best and complicated by a 1300 lb sore-hoofed patient with ADHD. The boots solved everything: pack the hoof and literally slip on the boots. It's also great that you can order individual boots, since he has different sized feet, and they wear well with minimal care. Have 2 pair now so I can clean one pr while he's wearing the other. Both our lives are so much more comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well My horse is a terror in the pasture and keeping shoes on is a problem. It was decided to just use boots in those situations when he needs a little extra protection (our arena has a lot of small stones). He is between sizes on the measurements, so I ordered two sizes - he needed the smaller ones. The only issue is a little ankle rubbing when grit gets in there. I've ordered the ankle wraps and that should take care of the problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durable, but hard to get right fit Bought two of these boots for a foot sore broodmare who would not tolerate the nails of traditional shoes. These boots appear to fit her hoof perfectly, but they turn almost 90 degrees when she moves. The only way I have found to prevent it is to have her wear socks or a diaper on the bottom of her hoof...unfortunately neither options are ideal since both collect moisture which exacerbates her hoof problems. Cavallo & SmartPak suggested trying a size 2 so I ordered one and didn't even come close to fitting her (she wears a 3) I do have to say that these boots are very durable though. She has been wearing them 24/7 for a couple of months and other than one having some fraying on the edges are in great condition. She can act like a complete idiot out in the field and they still stay in place. Definitely helped with her sore feet and much cheaper than getting shoes put on every 6wks. They do seem to drain well too so she is not stuck standing in a wet boot. I guess you can say I have a love hate relationship with them. Love the durability & that they have helped my mare feel better, Hate that they turn and end up rubbing despite looking like they fit perfectly. Just bought a pair of Cavallo Pastern Wraps to see if they will help fill some of the space and prevent rubs/turning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a life saver! My horse got an abscess and we had to pull her shoe and dig it out. She's sound now but I can't put her shoes back on yet because I wouldn't be able to clean out the hole in her foot. That's where these babies come in! I just slap these boots on her to turn her out if its a little damp out or to ride her in the arena where it's a little too hard for her tender toes. If it weren't for these things I would be waiting out the last couple months of riding weather! And I'm done with duct tape!!!! Worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and stays on! I bought this for when my horse inevitably looses a front shoe in between farrier visits. its great for trail riding, sturdy and stays on tight even through mud and hills. It's a good short term solution. I limit trail rides to under 1 hour with this on to avoid rubbing which I'm sure can happen to some horses

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Purchased one boot to help protect and cushion my horse's bare foot. He has been shod for years but suddenly came up lame with a case of white line, excacerbated by his crushed heels. My vet suggested putting a boot on him when he is outside his stall. This boot seemed like a good value since I do not plan to boot him permanently. My horse wears this boot in turnout (up to 4 hours) and on the exerciser (30 minutes daily). He is much more comfortable wearing a boot and can even trot without looking like a camel. The boot has held up well even in slick mud, and provides good traction. It has yet to come off. It's easy to hose off and air dry when dirty. I will note that I purchased one size larger to accommodate a dressing on the hoof. Fits perfect if the hoof is bandaged and slightly large if not - but I have not noticed any chafing or slipping. Would probably chafe if worn 24/7. The boot itself has the same sole as the other Cavallo boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy TB! I got these for my TB gelding who is tender on gravel, and can't handle full shoes. He only wears them while riding since he is fine in the pasture, and he loves them! When he is wearing them he is no longer hesitant to walk across gravel and happily trots about everywhere. I was nervous about riding him in these, but we jump and do trails, and the boots are fine for both. I did have to go a size down from what I thought he would need, but that could have been my measuring and not the boots.
