This boot is designed to protect and remain on the hoof in most riding conditions without motion induced joint interference. It is a quick fix for the occasional lost shoe. The outside tread pattern of the Boa Horse Boot has been designed for traction without injuries and since these boots are centered they can be worn on either the left or right hoof.
The Boa Horse Boot is quick and easy to use, for no tools or great strength are required to put on or to take off this boot. The boot opens large enough to accommodate the wide base of a hoof and the closure system uses the same technology as snowboard boots and modern athletic shoes.
This system allows the boot to fit snugly on almost any hoof to above the hairline. With the turn of a knob the reel develops significant leverage so tightening force is created with very little effort. Adjustments can be made in very small increments; helping to fit many differently shaped feet.
This closure is solid so it cannot loosen up, but as the boot itself stretches through the course of the day, a quick half turn of the knob tightens it back up again. For removal, pull the dial and the lace tension is released and the boot is easily slipped off. (gaiters come standard with sizes 0, 1 and 2)
Sizing the Boa Boot:
1. 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.
3. Compare your measurement with the size chart below.
4. Ideally, the width and length measurement will fit into the same Boa Horse Boot™ size. If the width and length measurements indicate different Boa Horse Boot™ sizes, select the larger Boa Horse Boot™ size
