To size your horse you will need the following:
1. Two measurements per hoof
First Measurement – Length
The correct measurement is taken at the heel buttress. 120mm or 4 3/4″ in this example
First Measurement – HEEL BUTTRESS
Measure to the heel buttress only, and not to where the hoof contacts the skin
Second Measurement – Width
Place your tape measure across the widest part of the hoof. 120mm or 4 3/4″ in this example
2. An understanding of which hooves are not suitable for Scootboots. Vertical walled hooves and flared hooves are NOT suitable and generally your measurements will tell you this
3. An understanding of the sizing tables. In our example above, the correct size is a size 3 regular.
Measuring and Fitting your Cavallo Hoof Boots
Cavallo Boots are SIMPLE to MEASURE
1 ) Measure the hoof carefully just AFTER A FRESH TRIM.
2) Measure the length from the heel buttress line to the toe. Do NOT include heel bulbs. (Refer to the diagram and video below)
3) Measure right across the widest part of each hoof.>
4) Compare your measurements to Cavallo sizing chart below. Stay within the boot size range as room for growth has already been allowed for between regular trims. The Cavallo Regular sole is best for a hoof that is measuring the same length and width. The Slim sole is 1/4 inch (6 mm) narrower than long and better suited to a more oval shaped hoof.
5) Please re-measure if the length is greater than the width by two sizes, 1/2 inch (12mm) or more.
IMPORTANT: OUR MEASURING TOOL MAY NOT PRINT TO SCALE (which could result in incorrect sizing). Please check measurements against a ruler before proceeding to measure.
- The weight-bearing LENGTH indicates the size necessary. Take width measurements as well since that helps to confirm you have chosen the correct size
- You may wish to measure each hoof as they may differ in size requiring two different pairs.
