For those who would like additional protection to the Cavallo Simple Hoof Boots softee-leather-covered foam collar, we offer the Cavallo Pastern Wraps.
Remember that there is a break-in period required to soften the leather at the bulbs and around the collar of your horse's new boots. Like your own riding boots, it is recommended that time is taken to gradually break-in your boots. The first day the boots should be worn for 20-30 minutes, during turn-out or riding. The next day, you can increase the time and so on. Horse's hooves, skin thickness, bulb sensitivity and conditioning can carry, so please monitor the wear and increase time in the boots as appropriate. You can speed up the break-in process by using a leather softener of your choice and/or riding through water.
