New Soft Hoof Boots

Most hoof boots are made from hard and fairly inflexible materials for toughness, but a new generation of hoof boots made from softer more flexible materials are emerging. Here are two of the newer types:





Equine Fusion Joggers




Equine Fusion Jogging Shoe: Equine Fusion is a Norwegian company who since 2005 has developed equestrian jogging shoes. The high tech shoe/boot with a slim profile and shock absorbing sole that leaves the hoof close to the ground for the effect of natural running. It is easy to fit and apply and the flexibility of the shoe allows it to stay stabilized on the hoof even in tough conditions. The shoe allows natural hoof mechanism for increased health, comfort and performance.

SoftRide Hoof Boots are not so well named as they really aren’t designed for riding, but for rehab, transporting, stable wear etc. Each Soft-Ride Comfort Boot ships with the patented gel insert. These orthotic inserts are the key to the Soft-Ride boot’s success in helping horses suffering from a wide variety of hoof conditions and disorders.
