Revolution for barefoot horses
Flex Boots are the BEST hoof boots in the world! They’re made to not just protect the hoof, but to move with the horse without restriction or rubbing; a barefoot boot that is meticulously designed to suit the performance trimmed bare hoof. I love that they are made in Finland and manufactured with environmentally conscious methods. In short, they are classy and comfortable!
MKS Equine - Flex Boots Australia
So how did Flex Boots end up here in Australia and New Zealand? A while ago I saw people asking questions about Flex Boots online. I hadn’t heard of them, so I looked them up and did some research, and discovered that they were definitely a quality product that we needed here. The boot fills a huge gap in the market for comfort for the horse, ease of use and customisation. I contacted Satu and Jiri from Flex Boots, and was so happy to learn that they are wonderful people to deal with; they really care about their product, brand and their customers. It was meant to be!
From there it all went very quickly, and today MKS Equine – Flex Boots Australia is the sole distributor of Flex Boots in Australia and New Zealand. We pride ourselves in promotion of good barefoot practices by offering this high-quality product to customers all across the two countries, along with top quality professional advice about fitting, using and maintaining the boots in the best possible way. We are always only an email away, ready to help our customers with questions before or after their hoof boot purchase. And we are honest – if we think Flex Boots are not suitable for your horse for any reason, we will tell you that. We never force-sell our products!
Just like Flex Boots, my origins are also in Finland. I’ve been living in Australia for 20 years, and been a hoof trimmer and boot fitter for 10 years. Before then, all my five horses were shod but I became dissatisfied with the state of their hooves, and the lack of information, care and assistance available.
I started to trim my own horses and immediately became obsessed with all things hoof, and I’m still on that path today. My passion for good hoof care practices ties in perfectly with the design, functionality and ethos of Flex Boots. It’s easy to promote and sell a product that I know works!
