Why We Love This

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). 


Black.  Sold in pairs.

Pair with the Cavallo Gel Pads!

Looking for added protection? The Cavallo Pastern Wrap offers an extra layer of protection for your horse’s soft skin when you ride.

Favorite 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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-purpose boot! Love this boot! Did a lot of research and this one lives up to its name! So simple and great quality. Good for turn out and good for riding. My boy doesn’t seem to even notice he’s wearing them. Sizing chart is accurate to fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these boots! Bought these to transition my horse from shoes to barefoot. I was nervous about using these because I had a hard time getting them on when I first got them in and wasn’t sure that they were the proper size. Definitely recommend getting your farrier to help measure if possible. Otherwise they are great. Takes some time to break them in but so far so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot My horse had abscess and needed to protect foot. He is barefoot on hind so put them on both back feet. They fit well and are easy to put on. He has worn them for week and no problems. They stay on well even when he is running around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot I have used other brands. I trail ride and we do go thru mud and rocks and climb on must trails. I have had to get off and pull boots out of mud duct tape them because the blew apart. I have only done about 50 miles bit I have not lost a boot yet. She seems to love them too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots My horse went through a difficult time with his feet and these boots saved him. He ripped off a shoe and took his hoof wall with it. Without being able to put shoes back on he went lame barefoot. These boots allowed him to keep active and move around comfortably. After a few days in them I did wrap his heels in cotton and vet wrap to prevent rubbing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle 27-1/2 yr old Chestnut TB Mare...mine since she slid out...we have lived the good life...we are BOTH paying somewhat for it...arthritis...lameness in both front evident recently, x-rays showed more so in right front...also transitioning to no shoes and pads (after a lifetime) in front...transitioning went well, having trimmed q3wks...but trouble with hard surface/rocks (flat-footed sensitive TB)...ordered these boots and the gel pad inserts...put them on and she walked out of the barn instantly happy! Vet and farrier Happy...I'm HAPPY...MOST IMPORTANTLY, SHE'S HAPPY...we can now start "back to work"...e.g. grassy acres out back...gradually...the gals at SmartPak have spent a lot of time with me on the phone to educate me about boots and arrived at the perfect solution...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. While the boot was intended to help with barefoot in front transition (no shoes on back for some time now), it has also helped with concussion effect on the arthritis...when I opened the gel packs, they are thin, seem hard...I'm thinking "real gel"...however when you take the boots off, the hoof wall impression is in the thin gel and again, seems to take care of concussion (like shoe pads did) and is forgiving of her flat feet soles...the size 4 (her feet measured 5" wide and 5-1/2" long) are perfect...they do not rub...although I do have a tip if they do...when you order synthetic halter fleece, I don't use the side cheek pieces and tried one in the back of the boot just in case I get a rub and the velcro sticks to the inside and you can then trim off the excess that drapes over the back of the boot...this is a long reply, but to all of us, even the smallest bit of info is sometimes very helpful...happy trails to all!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good protection but some fitting problems I bought these boots for my warmblood who is barefoot because of some soundness and infection issues. The boots seeemed to fit fine in the beginning (no problems getting them on) but after a few weeks the boot would rotate on my horse's foot to the point where my horse would act super sore until I fixed it. This would happen every few minutes while I was riding (walking). Also started to notice my horse was getting rubs on his heels from the boot. My horse seemed very comfortable and sound in them at first but once the foot started growing more, the boot no longer fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I bought these boots for my Morgan mare who foundered seriously a year and a half ago. Prior to her devastating event she went barefoot and had great feet After foundering, she had serious internal damage that may never be completely rectified, but she has been steadily improving. It was time to really start really exercising her and despite having a son who is a farrier, I was loath to compromise her new feet with nail on shoes. I tried these boots and have lunged her several times in them. Are they a miracle, no, but they exceeded my expectations. She comfortably walks, trots, and canters in them and looks pretty darn good. They keep the sole of her feet off the ground just enough to give her the relief she needs. I also bought the Cavallo fetlock/pastern wraps (on another site) and will likely invest in the gel pad inserts. I measured and held my breath ordering, she measured 5" in width and length and the size 3 fit her pretty well three weeks into her trim cycle. They may be a tad big right after trimming, but that's ok. They seemed too simple to put on to actually work, but they do!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not work for my horse, SmatPak was great The size 4 was too small, the size 5 too big. Just didn't fit my horses round shaped hooves. Smart Pak was very easy to work with on the return shipping. Definitely would purchase from them again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad fit through the heel bulbs Extremely easy to put on/off and the hoof portion fit well but the single shaped leather piece over the heel bulbs was a bad tight fit and exceedingly uncomfortable to my half Arabian mare. I am not sure how well it would stay on a very active horse in turn out or for aggressive riding. Measurements other than hoof alone need to be considered for this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boot of other purpose!! At our barn, we have found that this boot stays on sooo well when we are treating a hoof abscess or other hoof injury. Wrap fits inside and medicines are easier to keep on the bottom of the hoof with a pad then wraps...then the boot! The horse is less bothered by this boot and can Raven be put out to pasture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Tracking Out !!!! I purchased these boots a few weeks ago with a little hesitation. Having a 19 year old quarter horse who never wore shoes let alone boots I wasn't sure what to expect. I bought since his feet seem to be more sensitive as he aged. He loved them. He moved forward and I could see that he had more spunk in his stride. I highly recommend buying the boots rather then paying for horse shoes. Thanks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boots, Very durable! I bought these boots for my gelding to wear through the fall and winter while he took a rest from having shoes on. Since he needed support 24/7 he wore them for long periods of time, with a few days off in between. They survived rough turnout, including mud when it rained and two winters with heavy ice and snow! I had the same pair for two years and even as rough as they look, I can still use them in an emergency (I have the new Trek model now). We can walk, trot, canter and I've even jumped him up to 2'6 in them without any problems at all. They are a great boot. (Video of him hand galloping in his boots)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots I bought these boots a few weeks ago and both myself and my horse love them. They are easy to put on tan stake off. My horse Hershey seems to be very comfortable in them and enjoys them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cavallo Boots I just bought these boots and only used once. They are easy to get on. They did not fit as flush around the top (coronet band) area as I thought, but I went on a 1 1/2 hr. trail ride and they stayed on fine. I bought them to use on the horses I don't keep shod, and I only use them on the front. They worked perfectly. We have hard packed rocky ground, and they protected the hoof as expected.
    Date published: 2015-09-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good boot I bought these boots for my gelding who became lame and he has been able to walk normal while his foot heals. I do recommend that one cut the straps to the required length and use the "keepers" that come with them since if the velcro gets wet, the straps have a tendency to come undone. I wish SmartPak had the size 0 since my mare needed this size and I had to order the size 0 from Cavallo

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love so much! These boots have made a world of difference for my old guy. He has thin soles, and the hard ground has caused accesses and continuing foot pain. So much more comfortable, and walks, trots and even canters (at 29) with no pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I bought these boots for my mare. I hope to use them for trail riding and the occasional covering to keep bandaging on the hoof. These boots are a great quality and a size 2 fit her perfectly! I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to having these boots for many years!
    Date published: 2015-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit and price! I bought these for my retired gelding. They fit him well and work great for easy trail rides. No issues with rubbing or the boots getting lose. Sizing is accurate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I do a lot of riding on the pavement, so I wanted something to help protect from road concussion. These are working great for my horse, and she seems to like them. They run big though, so if you are measuring and have any doubt about size, go DOWN.
    Date published: 2015-07-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boots These are very nice boots for horses. Easy to use and install... But it runs big. So go a size down is my suggestion.
    Date published: 2015-06-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for road riding Bought these because we are having one of the wettest years ever. I live in a neighborhood, so we're riding on the roads a lot to get dry ground, and I was worried about concussion injury. So far, no rubs even though my horse's skin is wet every time she has them on, and she hasn't been sore at all, even on 1 hour rides on pavement with trotting and cantering included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from luv these boots! This is the first time I ordered boots for my horse. Last time she was shoed she was cut back to far and couldn't walk and in a lot of pain. My vet told me to order her a set of boots - my neighbor had some Old Mac they were the correct size but it took forever to get them on! I was wore out before I ever started riding.and they could only stay on the horse for 8 hours. I needed some for 24 hours at a time if necessary. When I got the boots they were so simple to put on! Then it was muddy and had to go thru some deep mud - thought this will tell if they are worth the money - knew they would come off but they didn't. Since then still have crossed a lot of creeks and mud places and they were secure!
    Date published: 2015-05-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! My horse just refuses to keep his shoes on in turnout. His feet are really paying the price and I think I'm personally supporting my farrier's 401k. I bought these on his recommendation a few weeks ago and so far, they're working! Easy to fit, easy to take on and off and seem to be holding up well. My horse is totally unbothered by them. I did have a hard time figuring out a size and landed on a size 5. Not sure the measurements are accurate on the packaging. For reference, he's a 16.3 h Holsteiner and 5 fit. Another horse about his size in my barn has the size 6. I think warm bloods are going to generally fall between those two sizes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought these boots for my 28 year old quarter horse gelding a couple of weeks ago. I like to keep him barefoot during the winter months but this year he is having some trouble with soreness in his front feet. These boots seem to be helping him a lot. It only took him a short time to get use to them on his feet. The boots seem to have alleviated his pain considerably and he is moving around his turnout pasture much better. He does have arthritis in all his limbs so movement is very necessary to keep him from getting stiff. These boots do seem to run a bit wide but are pretty true to size in length. There are instruction videos on the internet that show how to fit a horse to these boots. I myself would not ride in them unless the fit is exactly right. For turn out, they are great! Very easy to put on and take off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved our sore feet! Was in a BIG hurry to get some relief for my Reiner. Bad shoe job left him bruised, sore & "soled". The vet pulled his shoes and packed him for us but we needed some support ASAP. These arrived VERY quickly and were just as we expected. Met the need perfectly and within a few days we were able to get him moving far more comfortably. Will keep them for sure for hauling and show emergencies.
