MEASUREMENTS

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.

Measure after a trim

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.
