CLB Sole Widths
CLBs are available in four sizes on REGULAR soles (with the width and length being the same), and SLIM soles for a more narrow hoof, where (size for size) the sole length is the same as the REGULAR of the same size., but the width is 3/8’’ (10mm) less than the length – offering the perfect fit no matter the hoof shape.
The Full CLB Size Range
The M1 – M4 sizes on both Regular and Slim soles now give a complete range of sizing, including those very small hoofs that could previously not fit a Cavallo Boot! Size M1 is made to fit the smallest of miniature horses, and the M4 is designed to fit a large mini horse or pony, or a very small regular horse hoof. The M4 size bridges the gap between Cavallo’s miniature and regular size ranges.

Keeping Minis Fit and Healthy
Many mini owners are thanking Cavallo for developing a boot that allows them to drive twice as far on outings with their minis, keeping their horses at an optimal level of fitness. With the boots on, minis go a longer distance. Without these boots, they will display signs of fatigue or soreness much sooner. The thick soles of the boots simply do the work to absorb the concussive force of a hoof against pavement. Owners and horses are feeling more confident. Improving traction and providing protection go a long way to improve performance and decreasing risks.
Traction for Winter Action
Specially formulated TPU soles provide better grip on slick surfaces, such as interior floors and rainy roads. In the winter months, asphalt and other outdoor surfaces can become slick with frost, ice or even snow. To give safety and strong grip on these surfaces, studs can be added to all CLB Boots, and are easily removed once they are no longer required.
Getting Arena-Ready with CLB
The CLB is becoming a common tool used by minis training for events and shows. Kerri Postletheweight and her daughter, Megan, returned from the 2019 American Miniature Horse Association World Championships, boasting a win in one of the driving events. Kerri gave credit to her Cavallo CLB Boots for the role they played in the months before their win:
“Without a big indoor arena, the only place we can teach our miniature horses to drive a cart is on a long gravel driveway. Our Cavallo hoof boots protect their hooves from the rocks while driving. Our mini, Hughie (TWFS Moonlight Playboy), would not have been able to win World Champion in a driving class this year without his Cavallo hoof boots. He moves great in them and it does not affect his action. He has never had a boot slide off while working.
The boots are great for all minis from therapy visits to anywhere you want to take your minis that might be slick or rocky.”
-Kerri, Eric, and Megan Postletheweight, AMHA members
Why are CLBs Called “Cute Little Boots”?
“The CLB boots do great driving. There is no slippage or turning no matter the terrain. Blacktop, dirt, gravel, up and down mountains, combined driving events, and no soring of any kind. I have even driven tandem with the boots on my boys, and both my minis love them.”
BLB Boots Give a Mini with Lamniitis a Chance
“Jonesy is a 9 ½ year old miniature horse who suffers from laminitis from time to time. Until this year, he had never had it winter and had never been laying for hours at a time. Jonesy, at the end of January, could not walk. The weather had been crazy in Indiana and was going from 50 degrees to 10 degrees in one day. Jonesy was in trouble. I consulted with his vet and we immediately started him on pain medicine. After a few days I was not seeing much progress and was getting concerned that he was not going to recover from this. I contacted Cavallo to see if they had any recommendations that we could possibly try for Jonesy. We decided to try Cavallo CLB on all 4 feet. We also used the new yellow Comfort Pads in the shoes. I placed 1 comfort pad in each front boot and 2 comfort pads in each back boot. Once I had the boots on, Jonesy was able to walk. Yes, he was in pain, but they were helping, and he was moving. That was my huge concern because he was laying for so long. It has been a long 4 weeks, but I am very happy to report that Jonesy took off running today! Today was the 1st day he had gone back out into the big pasture and I guess he was just so excited he had to show me how good he felt. I do believe that the Cavallo CLB helped save his life. I was so afraid he wasn’t going to get up again and I was going to have to put him to sleep because he was in so much pain. I am so thankful that Cavallo helped me come up with a solution for Jonesy. Thank You, Cavallo!”
