For those who would like additional protection, we offer the Cavallo Pastern Wraps (sold in sets of two).
The pastern wraps offer an extra layer of protection for your horse’s soft skin under boots.
- Velcro the Cavallo wrap around the hoof, keeping it low to the ground around the bottom of the bulb and drawing the elastic diagonally upward from back to front.
- Place the boot on the hoof, toe first, ensuring that the wrap lies flat. Velcro the red tab from the pastern wrap onto the red Velcro on the tongue of the boot.
- Carry on your boot fastening procedure as normal.
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 hoofs, skin thickness, bulb sensitivity and conditioning can vary, 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.
Velcro the Cavallo wrap around the hoof, keeping it low to the ground around the bottom of the bulb and drawing the elastic diagonally upward from back to front.
Size small will fit the M2 and M3 CLB boot as well as other miniature horse boots of similar size.
