How to Properly Measure Your Horse's Hoof

sizing-importance.jpg

1.     After a fresh trim, measure the width of the hoof across the bottom at the widest point.


2.     Measure the length of the hoof from the toe to the buttress line of the heel.

The buttress line is the farthest weight bearing point of the heel where the hoof wall ends. Do not include the heel bulbs in the measurement.

3.   Compare your measurement with the appropriate size chart. Please note that each boot style has its own unique size chart.


4.  Ideally, the length and width measurement will fit into the same size. If the length and width measurements indicate different sizes, select the larger size. If the width and length measurements are different by more than one size, your selected boot style is not recommended.

*  Be sure to check your measurements against an alternative boot in the EasyCare line—another style may accommodate your horse’s hoof shape better.  Aways select the boot that is the closest to your horse's actual measurements.  All boots are not the same, many have different sole shapes so if you don't find a good fit in the style you like best a different style might work better for you.  Most boot problems stem from incorrect sizing.

If you are worried about your sizing we are happy to offer advice. Just phone us on 02 4457 3022.  If you are concerned about your horse's hoof shape and feel that it may have distorted any of the professional trimmers on our site can assist you.

*Note: If you are fitting an Easyboot Glue-On or Glove, width and length must fall into the same size category. Sometimes this can vary slightly which is why we always suggest that you use a Fit Kit when trying the Glove boot for the first time.
