Urban Horse Cannot Over Stress The Importance of Correct Sizing for All Horse Boots!

Please read below to find out how to measure -

  1. After a fresh trim, measure the width of the hoof across the bottom at the widest point.
  2. Measure the length of the hoof from the toe to the buttress line of the heel. The buttress line is the farthest weight bearing point of the heel where the hoof wall ends. Do not include the heel bulbs in the measurement.
  3. Then a second length measurement from the butress line straight up and right to the back of the heel bulbs.
  4. Compare your measurement with the appropriate size chart. Please note that each hoof boot style has its own unique size chart for guidance.
  5. 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. If the width and length measurements are different by more than one size, your selected hoof boot style is not recommended.*  Be sure to check your measurements against an alternative boot as another style may accommodate your horse’s hoof shape better.

Our checklist of information required to fully advise you re which hoof boots would be best for your horse or pony are as follows..

  1. Measurements of each hoof requiring booting in mm’s ?– length and width (Images emailed over are always fantastic – LENGTH - place a ruler with 0mm’s at the front of the toe and the ruler straight across the centre of the hoof with the camera focusing on the back heel bulbs so we can access the true length of each of your horses hooves. WIDTH – Place the ruler straight across the widest part of each hoof with the 0mm’s placed one side so we can access the true width of each of your horses hooves.)
  2. What you require the boots for?
    • General Hacking / Riding
    • Long Distance / Endurance
    • Therapy
  3. How often you ride and roughly how many hours each time?
  4. How often your horse is trimmed?

*Note: If you are fitting an Easyboot Glue-On or Glove, width and length must fall into the same size category.
