We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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 3.6364 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thin, Hard Gel Pad Having a horse who suffers from Navicular Disease, I thought these would be a great addition to his cavallo simples. He seemed a little more comfortable with the pads in his boots, but they just weren't thick and soft enough for him. I now have a pair of ThinLine pads AND these gel pads in his boots and he is doing GREAT!! Heel first landing and resting hind legs in the paddock, I'm feeling really great about his recovery!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy To Use, Too Hard In Consistency For Us I bought these for my gelding's aging Cavallo Sports (GREAT boots), as some wear on the inside was bruising one heel. It was great that they were labeled on one side for the "Simple" boots & on the other side for the "Sports." I still had to round the heels off, but easy to cut, even with my $1 barn scissors. Definitely very sturdy.Unfortunately, they are very very firm, even more so than a standard EVA foam pad, which I have used on the same horse in other boots with success. I would not call them 'gel,' more of a fairly firm plastic. I will be trying different types of pads instead.

    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.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
