Fit kit hire
We offer fit kits for hire, so that you can try them on your horse prior to purhcasing boots. This page explains how the hire process works, and what you need to take into consideration before hiring a Flex Hoof Boot fit kit.
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.

FIT & SIZE TOP TIPS
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.
Flex Boots fit hooves that are within +/- 5mm of the listed width measurements, and not longer than the listed length measurement.
For advice regarding the best boot size for your horse, please contact us.
