HEAR ME SPEAK: I'm a Presenter at Equine Affaire Ohio this Week!

It’s an all-star list of presenters this year, including Guy McLean, Julie Goodnight and Jonathan Field! 

Where & When?

My presentation Not a Vet? Here’s an Easy Insight to Laminitis takes place Friday at 12pm at the Seminar Stage (Voinovich Center), and my second talk, 8 Most Important Horse Care Concerns and How to Handle Them will be on Friday at 5pm in the Demo Ring (Celeste Center). Check out the presenter’s schedule HERE!

What Will You Learn?

My first talk is tailored to the non-professional horse owner for the prevention, understanding and treatment of Laminitis. Listeners will receive a simple definition of the disease, a list and variety of its causes and a good arsenal of tools to employ should the illness strike. Although Laminitis can inflict merciless agony and is potentially fatal, it is curable with an understanding of realistic and appropriate information. Knowledge provides power and independence.

I’ll give an overview of horse care topics, including supplements, digestive and muscular systems, shelter and suitable environment options, training and innate behaviours, hoof function, lameness prevention and common sense.

Certain simple laws of nature and science support your horse’s hoofs and overall health. Understanding hoof function will help you ward off problems such as Laminitis, Navicular Disease, skeletal and muscular fitness and gut health. Even teeth, performance and attitude are affected by the health of the hoof.

Zebra wearing Cavallo CLB Bling Hoof Boots

When you’re a zebra, breaking the rules of fashion only makes you even cooler! Nancy Nunke wrote us about her lovely Zebra: “Zavannah loves her CLB boots. With Laminitis, she could barely walk, and I would have to pull her into each step. Now she pulls me. Maybe I should get a pair for me, too!” 

Watch Nancy talk about her Hearts & Hands Rescue Sanctuary Family:

If you took the time to watch Nancy’s video, you might feel moved to make a donation to ensure that they can continue their heartfelt work. The rescue is still recovering from a financial hit caused by the Covid slowdown, and every donation (no matter how small) helps a great deal!

A Booted Bounty for Patrick's Birthday

What do you get as a gift for a pony – a pony who also happens to be the Mayor of a town in England? Well, call us predictable, but we opted to give him CLB Hoof Boots! 

From Patrick’s owner, Kirk: “Patrick had a fantastic 5th Birthday today; thank you very much to everyone who got him a gift, card or sent a message. It has been quite overwhelming how much love he has received today!” 

What You're Saying:

Using Cavallo Hoof Boots at Showgrounds
“I LOVE how easy they are to put on!”
Don’t like the idea of your horse standing around on gravel or hard surfaces when at events?

Kristin Ann is so happy with her new Cavallo Trek boots! She plans to use them on this gorgeous two-year-old for standing around on the rocky areas on show grounds, “they are perfect!”

Cavallo FAQ Time!

Question: What's a Wonder-ful Way to Fit Test your Cavallos?

Fitting Cavallo horse hoof boots

We always ask our customers to protect their new boots to keep them in “as new” condition when trying them on for the first time. This is important in case you need to exchange your boots for another size. 

Trying them on a soft surface (dry grass, on a rug, etc.) is ideal, so the soles cannot be scratched. It’s also important to cover the hoof with thin plastic to keep them nice and clean. 

Sunny McAlister took her fit test to another level using polka-dotted Wonder Bread bags! 😂

Wishing you many happy trails,
