Flex Boots fit hooves that are +/- 5mm of the listed width measurements, and no longer thanthe listed length measurement.
Hoof measurements should be taken after a fresh trim. FlexBoots fit a variety of different hoof shapes provided the hoof is maintained in its anatomicallycorrect shape. This generally means small maintenance trims at 1-2 week intervals. Flex Boots recommend that the owner should learn how to maintain their horse’s feet between professional visits. By doing so, you can ensure that the horse moves comfortably at all times with correct and well-functioning hooves, and your horse can enjoy these barefoot shoes of the horse world for as long as possible.
Flex Boots have created an online course to teach ownershow to carry out the maintenance trim, details can be found here:https://www.holistichoofcareforhorseowners.com/
Flex Boots are also available in custom sizes. For horses with thinner or thicker legs, the FlexCustom Boots come with one size smaller or larger TPU gaiters and neoprene gaiters. Please contact us to order custom boots.
