The Simple boot is a multi-purpose hoof boot for the barefoot horse. It is an all terrain hoof boot, great for hacking and general riding.
The Simple boot is the ultimate protection for the barefoot horse. This boot is not just for riding, but is also great for providing comfort when your horse is suffering from chronic hoof pain or sensitivity. It is great to help with rehabilitation from injuries, or abscesses, Navicular Disease and Laminitis. Simple boots can be used for protection during travel or taken on a hack as a “spare tyre” just in case you lose a shoe. They can also be used successfully for protection during turnout (for short periods of time) and over metal shoes. Care must be taken when used for these alternative purposes. Contact Liz at Horse and More for further advice. Note the warranty is void when used over metal shoes.
The slim fit Simple boot has a narrower sole than the regular fit boot, and is suitable for the more oval shaped hoof. The slim sole accommodates a hoof that is at least 1/4″ narrower than it is long.
