- Be sure to measure each hoof, as they may differ in size.
- The weight-bearing length indicates the boot size. However, it is a good idea to take width measurements as well since that helps to confirm you have chosen the correct size.
- To keep the boot clean, we suggest covering the hoof with thin plastic and checking fit on a non-scuff (not gravel), clean, dry surface.
Simple to Fit:
Simply insert hoof into boot. Secure Velcro® closures and adjust sliding keepers.
- Sole: The sole of the hoof should fit securely inside the boot sole. Ensure that the entire weight-bearing wall from front of toe to heel buttress sits within the Simple Boot outsole. It may be helpful to compare the outside raised tread area at the bottom of the boot to the weight-bearing length of the hoof sole.
- Outer Cover: Ensure that the boot tongue is pushed firmly against the hoof. Draw the outer flaps firmly around the hoof, pressing the Velcro on the flaps against the Velcro on the tongue; keep taut and level.
- Twisting: If the boot twists or moves excessively, it may be too big or the outer cover may be loosely fastened.
- Too Small: If you have difficulty putting the boot on, it may be too small. Ideally the boot "snaps" nicely onto the hoof for a good fit. Please check your measurements against the chart above.
- Once the boot is fitted, if the strap extends beyond the nylon keeper, then you can cut the strap to the preferred length, leaving a line of stitching to prevent unraveling.
