All CLB uppers are made of the highest quality materials possible and have passed Cavallo’s strict wear tests.

The Cavallo CLB Hoof Boot is the Official Hoof Boot of the American Miniature Horse Association (AMHA) and is the preferred hoof boot of many therapy horse organizations worldwide.
CLB Sole Widths
CLB’s 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 gives 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 goes a long way to improve performance and decrease 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

CLB Hoof Boots – No Hesitation!
“OMG. These CLB’s are wonderful. No hesitation. Love them. Unbelievable. Not much gets this 71 yr old woman excited but these boots are great! First time out in them we went for 1.3 hours at a trot and NO rubbing – thank you Cavallo. And thank you to Krystle in Customer Service for following through.”
-Louise… Scio, Oregon, USA.
Not Every Step Has to Hurt
“After a rough winter, my poor little miniature pony Mona started to develop Laminitis. The first few weeks she spent hours and hours laying down, had no appetite, and was in obvious pain. After a round of Bute, she was doing a bit better but that obviously wasn’t a permanent fix. My vet recommended hoof boots to me, but I was having trouble finding them in miniature sizes until I stumbled across the CLB from Cavallo. I ordered a pair after measuring her feet (in pink sparkles, of course – she’s a palomino, how could I not???).
Today I put them on for the first time and I feel like this is the start to getting my pony back. I saw immediate results from her actually WANTING to walk, instead of having to drag her behind me on the lead rope begging her to follow. Although she was still stumbling a bit, she was taking confident steps and was happy to walk. With the Cavallo CLB, exercise, diet, and help from my farrier and vet, I have no doubt that Mona will be running around before I know it! Thank you for giving my pony the confidence in knowing that not every step has to hurt! I cannot wait to measure my riding mare and order a pair of hoof boots for her to make her more comfortable as well when we go out on the trail!
THE CAVALLO BEST BOOT GUARANTEE
Cavallo’s Best Boot 180 Day Warranty Details:
Cavallo guarantees the quality and workmanship of Cavallo Hoof Boots for 180 DAYS from the date of purchase. Subject to approval from place of purchase, Cavallo will reimburse for repair or replace your boots against faulty workmanship. The guarantee does not cover natural wear-and-tear, inappropriate use, modifications, changes or alterations, unattended horses, incorrect sizing, excessive heat exposure, exposure to sharp objects, or use with metal shoes without Cavallo High Tenacity Protection Pads in place.
To be fully protected by the Cavallo Best Boot 180 Day Warranty, Cavallo Hoof Boots must be purchased from a recognized Cavallo retailer. Cavallo Hoof Boots purchased as “used” or “second-hand” are not covered under the Cavallo Best Boot 180 Day Warranty.
Boots must be returned to place of purchase, clean, washed dry and free of debris, manure and dirt with dated original receipt and shipping paid.
Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pads are warrantied against manufacturer defects for one year from the date of purchase.
Potential Hydrolysis effect on Cavallo soles:
Cavallo Hoof Boot soles are molded in industrial grade TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane). Under certain conditions, this compound may be vulnerable to a chemical reaction known as Hydrolysis. Hydrolysis is a bond breakdown which may occur at least 2 years after production. This happens only when boots are stored in unfavorable conditions and not being used. Hydrolysis may be avoided by ensuring good air ventilation and avoiding humidity over 70%. Keep the storage environment cool and dry with good air circulation. A combination of temperatures as high as 40 Degree Celsius with high moisture content, should be avoided.
Hoof boots that are frequently used in very wet conditions should be allowed to dry before storage and should not be stored in the original box or in areas of poor air circulation. Follow these instructions and your hoof boots will last free of Hydrolysis for many years.
Horse activities are inherently dangerous. The manufacturers, distributors and sellers will not accept responsibility for injury, death, lameness or illness resulting from the use or misuse of these products.
“Rebel has recovered from Laminitis and has to be kept barefoot now. Cavallo Boots allow him to go on gentle trail rides that he loves. I followed your video on how to break them in and it was a big help. He’s a Rocky Mountain Horse. Rebel was a patient at Cornell Ruffian Equine Hospital in NY last year, and they recommended your boots. Just thought you would like to know how I found out about your product. I’m very careful to do whatever I can to keep those hoofs healthy. He’s really walking great!!!”
“The Riser Saddle Pad Really Does Make a Big Difference…”
“I just wanted you to know that I got my front riser English pad and I think my horse really appreciated it. He’s 5, but still butt high, which creates balance issues, but our first ride was AWESOME!! Put me in a much better balance and he seemed to move out much more, even throwing in a happy mini buck of joy. The riser pad really does make a big difference. As you know, trying new tack pieces is really a game of trial and error and can be very expensive. I tried about 10 saddles, western and English before I found a Duett Companion (hoop tree for wide horses). He’s not wide but has prominent, uneven shoulders and nothing seemed to fit. Everyone has an opinion of what’s best or what’s worked for them. I simply listen to what my horse is telling me, lol, he’s good at telling me loud and clear. He’s quite the ham…think he wrote a book about the Prince and the Pea in a former life.”
– Paula Ironstone
Comforting Laminitis & Thin Soles
“I researched hoof boots like crazy before choosing Cavallo, so glad I made the right choice! We love them!! Duke is a mule. He is 26 and suffers from hoof wall separation and Laminitis. He wears his with Gel Pads during turnout. Java a pinto – he is wearing his boots today for comfort during turnout because the ground is frozen, but he normally just wears his for trail riding (he has 3 pairs!) He has thin soles and is an in-betweener, size-wise. We absolutely LOVE YOUR BOOTS! Thank you!!”
Better Late than Never
“I was a real latecomer to the idea of using hoof boots… Growing up, my Dad was the ‘horseshoer’ for our family & friends We never would have thought of having a barefoot horse, especially considering all we did with them year-round. But when looking for a horse of my own in recent years, I knew I wanted one that could go barefoot. And so I researched and bought Cavallos right away. I’m very happy, riding Sierra sometimes on rocky trails, and through creeks quite often. Can’t recommend them enough.”
High-Level Dressage Rider Depends on Cavallo Boots
“I’ve used Cavallo hoof boots for over 9 years, and have used them on a wide variety of horses from my traditional Gypsy ‘dressage cob’, Highland and Welsh Ponies, Thoroughbred and Warmbloods. I have never had any issues with them falling off or rubbing (unlike other boots I had previously tried) and we often have long adventures over and through a range of different terrains. This includes my advanced dressage horses, who have both been barefoot while in full competition work, but always wear their Cavallo hoof boots when hacking out.
I also used the boots when my Cob had Laminitis, as they really helped him to feel more comfortable, and even now when the ground is frozen and rutted, he wears his boots in the field to keep him comfortable. Along with the range of Cavallo accessories, I can always be sure to get the perfect fit and level of comfort for each of my horses.”
-Sue Grice, Dressage Rider, UK
Why Do We Exclusively Use Cavallos?
“Fame is happy in her Cavallo Simple Boots! We have a herd of 4, from a mini horse to a 16hh Quarter Horse. They all have at LEAST one pair of Cavallos! We have Simple, Treks, ELBs and CLBs. We also have almost every type of hoof boot pad Cavallo makes. Why do we exclusively use Cavallos?
They’re easy to get on. I don’t want to wrestle with a boot on a lame horse, or in the middle of a snowstorm. They come in a wide range of sizes. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to measure and get the right fit. Cavallos are easy to measure and I’ve never had issues getting the wrong size from my measurements.
Cavallos HOLD UP. Some of our crew are ROUGH on their gear. We’ve had many other hoof boot brands end up shredded and in the trash. Boots more expensive than Cavallos! After throwing away numerous pairs of boots that are $200+ a pair after owning them for a month, we switched to Cavallo and had zero issues.
Cavallo customer service is the absolute best. I sent them a message asking about using boots in snowy conditions and got a detailed and helpful answer within 24 hours. Often times it’s even sooner.”
