Cavallo Simple Boot
The Cavallo Simple boot is the "hiking boot" of the Cavallo line.
......the Multi-Purpose Hoof Boot, excellent for protecting your horse’s hooves on hard, rough terrain. The ultimate protection for the barefoot horse.

What Size Cavallo Boot?
To determine what size Cavallo Boot your horse needs, simply:
- Measure the bottom of your horse's foot, in inches, from the buttress line to the toe. Do not include the bulbs of the heel in the measurement (see the image below).
- Cavallo recommends measuring the hoof after a fresh trim.
- After measuring use the chart in the image below to determine the size of boot.

For a handy, printable diagram you can use to measure your horse's hoof, you can see this page on the Cavallo website:
Note: If you use the above link to print the chart provided by Cavallo, make sure your printer prints the chart in the correct size! Sometimes printer settings will print a page with the information on it being smaller or larger than the actual size. If this happens to you, your chart will give you incorrect information about what size Cavallo boot your horse should wear. (Tip: On most printers, you will usually print at the actual size if you print at 100% with no page scaling.) Cavallo recommends that you compare the printed chart to a ruler or tape measure to make sure the measurements are accurate.
A Cavallo boot that fits correctly will not need to be forced onto the horse's hoof. If it takes too much muscle to get the boot onto the horse's hoof, the boot is too small. In addition, a boot that rotates around the hoof is too large. Wiggle room, however, is ok: Remember, the hoof will expand during movement and when bearing weight.
