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

A Shoe Boil Boot aids in the prevention of capped elbows by keeping the horse’s hooves away from its elbow when lying down. Durable smooth rubber with nylon strap.

    Shoe Boil Boot is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best prevention against shoe boil "ever"! I have an 18 hand TB who ended up with a shoe boil a few years ago from a shabby shoe job. He recently had his shoes pulled for the first time this winter and we decided to try him without the boil boots, BIG MISTAKE! He indeed got another shoe boil on the same elbow. This due to lack of bedding and my mistake of allowing the boots to not be worn while inside at night. Therefore, he will always wear these boots when stalled at night. In addition I pay for extra bedding as that is also needed to avoid the shoe boils. My horse at first would chew the boots up fairly quick. However, he has not done so in the past year as long as he has hay constantly while in the stall. I also keep bell boots on him when turned out during the day as that will also help prevent against shoe boils when he lays down in the pasture. Another trick I have used is when the boil is in the healing process, use bell boots in conjunction with the boil boots in the stall but use the bell boots upside down above the boil boots, this also helps prevent the boil boot from being pushed above the ankle at times. I had never heard of shoe boils until my horse got one and they are horrible and take forever to heal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Fantastic way to help heal and prevent reoccurence of a shoe boil on horse's elbow.Easy to use, comfortable, and horse has no problem wearing it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick! This shoe boil boot works just as it should and is the only way to help a horse with a shoe boil.The purpose of the shoe boil boot is to stop the horse from laying on the side where the boot is worn (as it would be uncomfortable to lay on a big donut like this boot), so that the shoe boil can heal over (a frustratingly long) time. A shoe boil forms when a horse lays down with a hoof pressing the skin, causing a sore and eventually (sometimes overnight!) an infection with a large bulge. The boot itself will not cure the boil, but without the boot, the sore will not have a chance to heal as the hoof may continue to press on it. Wearing the boot is the only way to stop the boil from getting worse, or for a new boil to form. Think of the boot as a plastic cone collar for a dog so that they cannot lick or open their wound.Once the infection and swelling goes down - which takes 4-6 weeks or more - there will be permanently lose skin that was stretched out due to the swelling. It is important to continue using the boot permanently, as otherwise the shoe boil may return.We put the boot on every evening and take it off every morning. Do not tighten too much as you do not want it to rub. I am ordering a new boot every 6 months or so, as they naturally succumb to the normal wear and tear given the daily use.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I purchased this boot on the advice of my Vet, although he did not specify this brand. I expected this Shoe Boil Boot to be softer, to cushion the boil and help the swelling to go down. It is NOT. It is as hard as the hoof heel that caused the problem in the first place. It also appears to be much bigger than it needs to be and after just one night wearing it my Thoroughbred was lame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse has a capped elbow that appeared almost over night. This has helped to reduce the size and hopefully it will disappear.
