If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times. When it comes to having success with hoof boots, the importance of fit simply can not be over-stressed. Booting success happens when a well trimmed hoof meets a well fitted hoof boot. Anything less and your fit will be compromised in some way.
When fitting the Easyboot Glove and Glue-On hoof boots we provide a measurement chart as a place to start. However, the best and easiest way to ensure a great fit and ultimate booting success is with our Fit Kit. If you are a natural hoof care provider/EasyCare dealer, you more than likely already have the full Fit Kit with all eleven sizes. Horse owners, you can obtain a three shell Fit Kit directly from EasyCare or locate a barefoot trimmer and EasyCare dealer near you for a hoof trim, evaluation and boot fitting.
Below, EasyCare dealer Burnd Jung from Hufshop in Germany shows just how well these shells should fit when determining size. Remember these are the Fit Kit shells he is using; no gaiters, tape or glue.
Will your fit pass this test?
