The Cavallo™ Sport Slim Sole Hoof Boot is a lightweight, sleek design made for a narrower hoof and lighter riding. This hoof boot offers all the performance and versatility you’ve come to expect from Cavallo, with a stay-put fit and easy on/off. It’s shaped to suit a more oval hoof shape than the Cavallo Simple boot, which has a rounder shape. It’s perfect for light riding and to use to comfort chronic pain, hoof sensitivity, injuries, abscesses, navicular disease, laminitis/founder, puncture, sole bruising and contracted heels. It’s also helpful as protection during trailering and breeding, and is easily carried on trail as a precaution against a lost shoe.

Designed with a natural shape to eliminate the need for shims, the Sport Slim Sole Hoof Boot has leather inside and out to conform comfortably to your horse’s heel bulbs. The tough 1,000 denier upper has a Softee leather foam-filled collar for horse comfort and reflectivity for great visibility. The easy-to-use front fastening is made of industrial grade VELCRO® straps.

The sure-footed outsole is made of specially formulated thermo-plastic-urethane (TPU) with built-in drainage and a waterproof tread. It features a built-in breakover allowance, a unique tread pattern that supports the frog, an innovative natural heel (skid) brake and a molded back flap for bulb protection and abrasion resistance. Lightweight and shock-absorbent, the sole also has an integrated high-density inner rim that supports the load bearing hoof wall. Pair.


Tips for Using Hoof Boots
  • If you are unsure about proper hoof boot fit or are concerned about the way your horse's foot breaks over as he moves, consult your farrier.
  • Horse boots should be used only for riding and should not remain in place on your horse's feet.
  • As your horse's hooves grow between trims, be sure to check hoof boot fit. On most horses, properly fitted boots fit well throughout the trim cycle, but some hooves grow in such a way that the boots become ill-fitting and can cause discomfort.
  • Hoof boots should not twist, abrade or rub your horse. If this occurs, check the fit or consider another type of boot for your horse.
How to Measure for Hoof Boots
Hoof boots must fit snugly and correctly. Improper fit can result in chafing or rubs, tripping, or loss of the boot during a ride. Size charts are available for hoof boots. To determine the size your horse needs:
  • Measure each of your horse's feet just after a trim using a metal tape measure with inch increments. Hooves are not always symmetrical in size, especially when comparing front to back.
  • Measure the width across the bottom of the foot at its widest point.
  • Measure the length from the toe to the buttress line of the heel. The buttress line is located at the end of the weight-bearing point of the heel, where the hoof wall ends and starts to curve in.
  • Compare your measurements to the manufacturer's size chart for the brand of hoof boots you would like. Width and length should fit within the same boot size, but if different sizes are indicated by the measurements, select the larger size.
  • A hoof boot should feel so snug as to be slightly difficult to put on. The sole of the hoof should fit level in the bottom of the boot.
