Hoof Boots

Hoof Boots for Protection, Transition and Soundness for your BareHoof horse

Many horse owners are realising the benefits of maintaining their horse’s feet barehoof.  The evidence is abundant that having horse’s hooves barefoot is far safer and healthier than shoeing.

Just as with our feet, if a horse is de-shod and left barehoof or taken from a soft environment and asked to perform on harder, rockier ground, then hoof tenderness may initially be an issue.

Modern hoof boots are the answer to this challenge.

Today’s hoof boots are the result of ongoing research and development by several companies across the world.  Spurred on by the strong demand by the barehoof movement, modern hoof boots and sole padding systems will fit virtually any horse with ease and comfort.  Hoof boots are best applied to all four hooves as protecting just the front hooves will cause the horse to use the hind hooves less.  It is generally agreed that horses perform better when they are driving from behind. 

Modern hoof boots are also relatively economical to buy, and if used correctly will last many thousands of kilometres.

Current design hoof boots are constructed from hard wearing and long lasting user replaceable components.  This means should a part of a hoof boot wear out or break, then it can be ordered and easily replaced using common hand tools.
