on individual boots & easyshoes.
Before you buy be sure to size correctly.
Correct sizing is everything with hoof boots! We cannot stress this point enough!
1. Measure after a fresh trim.
2. Check through all the sizing charts for the various styles to locate a boot which is the closest match to your measurements, both length and width. Choose styles that suit your horse's measurements.
Some boot styles will accommodate less than perfect feet - these are the ones that enclose more of the entire hoof capsule or have fastening systems that can draw in the top of the boot.
Sizing charts are listed below with the boot range and are also listed on our shop with the individual boot styles.
Tips for Fitting Success:
For good boot fit a 4 weekly cycle is recommended. If you are on a longer trim cycle between trimmer's visits sometimes its necessary to use a more high profile boot that will accomodate a little flaring.
Measure carefully, use metric measurements they are more accurate. Boot sizes also do not equate to shoe sizes.
One question we are often get asked is, “Why can’t I measure in inches and convert to millimeters?”
The problem here is two-fold.
First, most of the time when people measure in inches they tend to round to the nearest inch, or fraction of an inch.
Second, one inch does not convert to an even millimeter measurement. One inch is equal to 25.4 millimeters. When rounding your inches measurements, it will obscure your millimeters conversion by nearly 0.5 millimeters.
This may not seem like much, but if you take 0.5 millimeters off of each inch measured, the difference can be quite significant. This is especially an issue when trying to fit a boot, like the Easyboot Glove, which requires precise measurements for a proper fit. Great fit only comes from accurate measurements taken correctly.

The Zip boot is ideal as a strong temporary covering for any hoof wound.
It is simple to put on and can be done quickly which really helps. It can provide a clean environment for a bandaged hoof and is something all horse owners should consider having in their first aid kit for those times when you don't have a stable available and your horse has a hoof injury.

Having a Zip boot handly allows you to prepare the hoof for gluing and not have to worry about geting dirt or moisture on it before you glue. If you have a figety horse then you don't have to panic if you need to allow him to put his weight back on that hoof prior to gluing.
Easycare Inc. now have a product to help those who compete in sports that as yet do not permit hoof boots.
It is also a great rehab. tool for farriers & professional hoof care providers as it allows the hoof to expand and flex and bare weight normally.
