Urban Horse want you to get the best fitting Hoof Boots for your Horse or Pony. The correct measurements will help you get the fit right!

  • After a fresh trim, measure the width, in millimetres, starting at the widest point straight across to the other side of the hoof – see image A
  • Measure the length of the hoof starting from the toe straight down the middle of the hoof to the buttress line of the heel. The buttress line is the farthest weight bearing point of the heel where the hoof wall ends – see image B
  • Compare your measurement with the appropriate Hoof Boot size chart. Please note that each hoof boot model has its own unique size chart.
  • Ideally, the length and width measurement will fit into the same size. If the length and width measurements indicate different sizes, select the larger size or another style of hoof boot. If the width and length measurements are different by more than one size, your selected hoof boot style is not recommended. Do check your measurements against an alternative boot as another model may accommodate your horse’s hoof shape better.

Let Urban Horse size Hoof Boots for you!

If you are still unsure and you would like us to help you size for boots then please see below and email us picture width and length measurements of each Hoof that needs booting; , or call us on 01434 422700

Picture measurements are brilliant for us to ‘read off’ measurements and see the shape of the hoof as a whole – different shaped hooves may suit particular style boots.

It is always best to measure after a fresh trim and always easier if someone can help you too.

You will need:

  • A Tape Measure  / Ruler in millimetres, all hoof boots are measured in millimetres.
  • A mobile phone / digital camera

How to measure:

  1. Lift the hoof and brush, or clean, away any debris
  2. Width: Place the tape measure / ruler starting 0mm at the widest part of the hoof then straight across to the other side – See image 1- Take a picture.
  3. Length: Place the tape measure / ruler starting 0mm at the TOE, then straight up the middle and up to the back of the heel bulbs – see image 2 Take a picture.

If you are happy with the pictures and can clearly see the measurements (if you can’t see them we won’t be able to see them either) then please send your pictures to letting us know which picture refers to which hoof, ie Right fore width, right fore length etc

Can you also let us know what you need the boots for?

  • General Hacking / riding
  • Long Distance / endurance
  • Therapy / controlled turn out

How often you ride and roughly how many hours each time?

How footsore your horse / pony is?

How often your horse is trimmed?

Once we receive all the picture measurements and additional information we will get back to you promptly with hoof boot model / size recommendations suitable for your horse / pony.

Please do email, or call us 01434 422700 if you need any more information or can’t see what you’re looking for
