Cavallo Horse & Rider

Cavallo Horse & Rider was started in 1993 by President, Carole Herder.  Carole started the company with one thing in mind "how can I make this a better industry for our horses and the people who ride them?"

Carole didn't come from a horsey background and started riding as an adult.  She found her first horse Rocky was lame half the time and also seemed agitated and unhappy.  She was told this is just part of horse ownership and she should just get on and ride.  This didn't seem right to Carole so she set about finding answers...
