A unique close fitting hoof boot designed to keep wounds, poultices and dressings clean. This durable boot is suitable for stable and turnout use enabling your horse to enjoy some freedom instead of being kept in his stable.

Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability it also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening) stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside.

Available in 10 different sizes based on shoe size, (please click on the fitting tab above for more details) the boot is designed for use with or without a shoe (you may need to go up a size if using with a shoe on).

Hints and tips for fitting

When fitting the boot you may find it easier to face the front of the horse and rest his leg on your knees – similar to how your farrier holds the foot when shoeing.
This enables you to look down the front of the boot and use the ‘V’ indent as a guide to ensure the boot is not crooked when fitted. Ensure your horse is tied up securely and standing calmly when doing this. 
When using the correct size, the boot is a snug fit and should fit sleekly around the foot, bulbs of the heel and up the pastern. If the horse is sore from an abscess or bruised foot, the boot will offer some immediate relief as the soft padding from the sole will reduce pressure. 
If turning your horse out to pasture whilst wearing the Hoof Boot, ensure that the area is well drained, and for the benefit of your horse, as level as possible as this will further help to reduce discomfort. 
If the Hoof boot is fitted with the zip on the inside, and your horse is sensitive, thin skinned or inclined to brush, you may like to offer some extra protection to the opposite pastern. This can be something as simple as some adhesive bandage around the pastern, or a better option is to use Woof Wear Pastern Wraps. Made from breathable neoprene these will protect the area from the possibility of any rubs and are safe to leave on for long periods.
