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'!).

Say goodbye to your duct tape and hours of frustration because hoof packing and soaking just got easier!

Made from hard-wearing ballistic nylon, the Hoof Sock is easy to slip on and simple to secure with the industrial VELCRO® brand reinforced tabs. Use with poultice, hoof pack, iodine or an Epson Salt soak. The Hoof Sock comes with two removable inserts: felt for soaking and foam for comfort and stability. Both will aid healing of ailments like punctures, stone bruises, abscesses, thrush or severe cracks. The Hoof Sock can be used in the stall or during light turnout. It's also great for city shows - your horse will never have to walk on pavement again! Made in the USA. Machine washable. Black.  XS (3 3/4), S (4 3/8), M (4 3/4), L (5 3/8), XL (6) or XXL (7).

    The Hoof Sock is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total junk I was so desperate that I bought this and paid to have it Fed Ex overnight. Complete waste of money. It lasted about 3 hours for a horse standing in a stall with Soft Stall flooring. It was completely shredded on the foot which was the point in having it. Do NOT waste your money. Duck tape is far cheaper and works.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decline in quality Well, I purchased a hoof sock 4 years ago and used it 4 times for about 3 weeks each for a 17.3 Cyldesdale cross to cover a wrapped hoof recovering from an abscess. It was used for turn out and stood the test. Other than the velcro wearing out, it was perfect and super durable. I decided to order a new one to have a spare, and was tired of ductaping it closed. I noticed the new one seemed to be of new fabrics and much tinner. Well it lasted one night of turn out and the bottom fell apart. It cames apart at the seams and shredded the bottom! Hence...the thinner fabric. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!! Would not buy another!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't hold up for me I used this on a yearling WB who had a nasty abscess and was on stall rest. Horse had a epsom poultice, diaper and then this sock. Thought it would save me duct taping etc. but it only held up for 5 days before she torn thru the bottom. She was on rubber mats and straw bedding, if that makes any difference.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got the job done! I started fostering my draft gelding in May, and like many rescues his feet were in miserable shape. He had abscesses and a 2" deep cut in his right front frog. And then, it started raining, and raining, and raining... and he got thrush.If you've ever tried duct-taping a draft-sized hoof, particularly one attached to 1500 lbs of completely green, suffering horse, then you have an idea of why a sock would be amazing even if it only lasts three days!I'm a pro at duct-taping hooves but he was too much for any amount of duct-tape, wearing through four or five layers in under 12 hours and thus letting water into the bandaging. The hoof sock, with extra duct tape, kept his hoof dry for three days, which was enough time for the thrush treatment to start really working.After the boot died, I used the foam insert to give my duct-tape wrapping more stability, and with four layers of tape it kept his foot mostly dry for about 24 hours at a time.The extra-large was a bit too small, so this product might work better on a normal sized hoof. However, I took the advice of other reviewers and duct-taped the outside of the boot, and duct-taped the hoof itself, and it still had worn through in less than 72 hours.All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone fighting thrush or abscesses, even though the sock itself ripped within three days. The pad is still solid after three weeks of use, and those three days that his hoof was kept 100% dry were a turning point in his treatment. It's easy to use and stays on very well,

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for my horse My farrier put these on my horse (with the padded inserts) late Monday afternoon and he destroyed them by 9:30 Tuesday morning having never left the confines of his stall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from hoof sock I purchased these for my miniature horse/small pony because they said they measured the right size for my horse. unfortunately they were too big, missized. smart pak, was wonderful, they sent me a new pair, measured to make sure the size was right and then sent me a free return label. this service was above and beyond. I would purchase these again, but wish this company would make them for the smaller minis also. there is a large demand out there for mini size boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good purchase I ordered the xs size , ordered it per the size they said it would fit. Well didnt fit my pony, too big, and so i measured the hoof slipper and it is much bigger than the measurements they gave for the xs. Would love to see them make an xxs size for my small pony.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAVED MY BUTT This hoof sock saved my butt (well...my back actually) when my horse had a nasty stone bruise that required soaking and wrapping. I still wrapped her hoof in a diaper for added cushioning, but one swipe around with a piece of duct tape to secture it, put the Hoof Sock on, and I was done! The Hoof Sock I had was a size large, (about one size too big for her), but it slipped on easily over the diapered foot. I did add another strip of duct tape to help make the top of the boot tighter, but if I had the correct size, that wouldn't be needed. I just ordered the medium size for next time. The only thing that made it 4 stars is the wool insert pad seemed to compact after only a few days and didn't offer much cushioning after that.
