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 Medicine Boot is ideal for continuous soaking when conditions such as abscesses, thrush, puncture wounds and other aggravated foot conditions exist.

Favorite Features

  • Relieves pressure when signs of bruises, corns or cankers appear.
  • Soft pliable upper comforts the leg during use and closes tightly just below the fetlock.
  • Boot opens wide for easy on-off application.
  • Durable triple-layered bottom is made of a tough polyvinyl compound making it usable many times over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allows me to turn out even with healing abscess My PSG horse tends to get bruises/abscesses in our wet winters. She's super high energy, and doesn't tolerate confinement in a stall well. I have been using a Davis boot for years for all day turnout when she's got a healing abscess, and it's held up wonderfully (tho I do recommend putting Fray Check or similar on end of nylon strap - the plastic end came off almost immediately, and otherwise the nylon frays so it's hard to thread through the buckle.) The secret to getting the boot to stay on is to get the correct size - it should be a tiny bit of a struggle to get on and off - and it will stay on reliably. She tromps through mud and gallops around, and she'll come in, I take it off for overnight in the stall, and 99% of the time, the foot and bandage are still dry and mud free. A life saver for me and my wonderful, but claustrophobic horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boots I've been using Davis Medicine Boots for years. The only minor flaw for me is the strap's Velcro doesn't hold very well and it's too long. I end up knotting it at the buckle so it doesn't hang down and get stepped on by the horse. Otherwise, these boots are fabulous for soaking & medicating hooves. I wouldn't buy any other kind. They last forever. I've never had one tear or the buckle break. They are very affordable, so I can purchase different sizes without breaking the bank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and stay on! Purchase the next size up if your horse has a high instep.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Construction I use the boot while my horse stands tied, so I'm not stressing it much. It is holding up well.
