We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Ultra is a full wrap to ensure coverage even if they have an extra hard way of twisting while pushing off the ground. It can also be used for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill. The thin neoprene and double layer of fleece make a very comfortable but tough boot that can be worn full-time for those horses with deep chronic sores.
Favorite Features
  • Effective against most hock sores
  • Great for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill
  • Thin neoprene and double layer of fleece for added comfort
  • Safe to be worn full-time

Sizing

Small/ Medium 13" - 15"
Large/ X Large 15" - 17"

    Hock Shield Ultra is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure beats my painters and duct tape version!! Have been looking for years for hock protection that will really work for my thin skinned appendix mare! This is the best I've found. The left boot that she wears away quickest did have a hole in it after only 2 weeks of use, but I reinforced it with a tough patch that is holding. The left boot doesn't stay on as well as the right, but the left side definitely gets more pressure against it. Not perfect but the best hock boot I've found. Depending on how they hold up durability wise will determine if I'd purchase them again or go back to using 2 inch blue painters tape covered with good old duct tape as I have for the past 10years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty big for a normal horse. My 950 pound Missouri Fox Trotter wears the S/M securely but I have to overlap the sections for a secure fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A hock saver! My horse tends to get pretty gruesome hock sores in the summer time no matter the amount of shavings in his stall. These have really helped protect his hocks and stay on all day without shifting. Easy to put on and clean. Wish they were a bit more durable though since they wear out pretty quickly and are quite pricey to replace. I recommend going with the smaller size since the elastic stretches. The elastic stretched up to 3 inches with my last pair and they would no longer stay on. Bottom line, they did the job protecting my horse's hocks and allowed them heal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever I have an older horse with DSLD that doesn't get up as easily as some of the younger horses in the barn. He has always had a hock sore, but recently it got to the point it was always open. I tried everything including heavily bedding his stall (stall cleaners typically do not appreciate a foot of bedding), liquid bandage, ointments...nothing helped... my horse is just a big guy and pushes off on his hock to get back up. I was reluctant to purchase a boot because I know the hock is a sensitive joint, and it's hard for hock boots to stay on. I am glad I purchased these shields! They stay on and in place overnight (12+ hours), even when I don't put them on tight, and don't seem to annoy my horse (and this is a horse that walks funny the first five minutes with standing wraps on!) I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots Bought this item 2 weeks ago for my probe to hock sores QH. Once you learn how to put it on it takes just a few seconds and they stay on. However, they did stretch quite a bit, so if you're close to between sizes, I would suggest going with the smaller one. I am glad I did. Overall, they are doing their job and look comfy, my horse doesn't fuss over them.
