A unique close fitting hoof boot designed to keep wounds, poultices
and dressings clean. This boot is suitable for use in the stable and can
be used on sensible horses in the paddock. The boot is designed using
flexible and light materials to enable easy fitting and as a cost
effective alternative to adhesive bandage and tape. Bearing this in mind
exuberant horses and those having undertaken a period of box rest may
damage the boot by standing on it or doing racing stops. In these
situations you may wish to consider placing an overreach boot on top of
the medical hoof boot or using a more traditional poultice for the first
day turned out.
We expect the boot to last 2-3 weeks under normal circumstances with
many customers finding they last much longer. The boot is not
indestructible and so is not guaranteed against breakage, due to the
horse standing on the boot.
Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior
for durability it also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really
close fit (and prevent it opening) stopping bedding and other debris
from getting inside.
Available in 10 different sizes, (please click on the fitting and
sizing tabs above for more details) the boot is designed for use with or
without a shoe. It can assist in a number of ailments to the foot such
as abscesses, punctured sole or bruised sole.

accurately or buy a size too big it can result in damage to the MHB due
to the boot being trodden on by the other foot.
