We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

Why We Love This

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.

    Cavallo Simple Boot Gel Pads is rated 3.6923 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit was easy but durability is poor Easy to cut & size. The gel pads are surprisingly hard, so as to therapeutic benefit I didn't see any for the horse. They don't last long. In our case, used as therapeutic with turnout in boots and lasted about a week at the longest (we tried 2 sets) I would add that if your horse gets his feet wet on the trail or pasture- these get mighty slippery inside the boot. I find boots are better off without these pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory to the boots! I bought these inserts to go with my Cavallo Boots. I intend to use the inserts when trail riding or trailer to give extra support to the hoof. I like the pre etched grooves to make fitting into the boot easy.

    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.
