Correct Size & Fit
Anatomically accurate trim, ideal size boot and correct fitting are all important in ensuring that the hoof boots fit your horse well without any rubbing or discomfort. Correctly fitted boots last longer and help you make the most of them.
Key to selecting the correct boot size
The best time to measure your horse's hooves is a day or two after they have been trimmed. We advise you to measure all four feet, as they may differ in size and shape.
When you have done the measurements, compare them to the size chart below to determine which size boots are best for your horse.

This is when the hooves are at the correct size and shape.
Hooves should be maintenance trimmed weekly, to retain the shape and balance of the hoof.

Flex Boots fit hooves that are within +/- 5mm of the listed width measurements, and not longer than the listed length measurement.
