Does your horse have a foot that is wider than long? Are you worried that a wide hoof is not a canidate for Easyboot Gloves or Easyboot Glue-Ons? Don’t worry, if you have a horse that has a foot that is wider than long there is a very good chance the boots will not only work but they just may work better on your wide hoof.
The hoof above measures 4 3/4 wide x 4 1/2 long.
Although the Easyboot Glove and Easyboot Glue-Ons shells are made for a hoof that is slightly longer than wide, both shells fit a hoof that is wide (slightly wider than long). The shells have a great deal of stretch and accomodate a wide foot very well. A wide foot makes for a very secure and snug fit.
On a wide foot the shell will stretch and the V at the front of the boot will open wide. When the V is open wide you know the boot fits snug and will perform well.
If you have a horse with a wide foot don’t give up hope on the Easyboot Glove or Glue-On.
1. Order a "Fit Kit". A "Fit Kit" will show you if the shells will fit and takes the guess work out.
2. Make sure your horses hoof does not have flare that should be removed. There is a good chance that flare is adding width and could be taken away.
