Correct protection of the hooves.
Protection of the hooves is only necessary when we ride the horse. It is important that the horse moves naturally, barefoot and without protection duringhis "leisure time”. This ensures optimal activation of the cardiovascular system through the hooves, automatically increasing the well-being and life expectancy of the horse.
There is a right shoe for any activity. *
“Jogging boots” for pleasure riding, easy to handle, very durable.
Endurance Boots for high standard equestrian activities. Or a combination of both, front hooves with sport boots and hind hooves with pleasure riding boots.
Transition boots especially designed for the transition from horseshoes to barefoot.
Multiple purpose boots suitable for all kinds of situations and requirements.
* We recommend to have to a good barefoot trimmer measure your horse’s hooves for your first pair of boots.
Security and Protection.
The entire hoof is protected. The tread of the sole provides safety and optimum traction on both paved roads and rough terrain.
The annual costs for hoofboots, including the hoof care, are similar to the cost for traditional shoeing. However the boots last an average of about 2 years (using them 1 - 2 times per week) and are therefore more economical, in the long run, than horseshoes.
A corrective trim of the hoof and it’s angle is much easier and economic if the horse is not shoed.
