"I began using Soft-Ride boots in early 2009. I have hauled my two good horses, Oz and Flip, as much as, ever and have given no Bute or Banamine. I don't want to have to use pain relievers to do my job and I don't want my horses to either. This great product has allowed my horses to be drug free."

Ten-time All Around World Champion Trevor Brazile

"When we go to rodeos we only have a few hours and there's not time to bed a stall down, little things like the Soft Ride boots help. We can deal with less-than-ideal footing for them to stand tied to the trailer with those boots on...Traveling as many miles as we do, that really helps your horse's health.

Veterinarian using Soft-Ride Boots while taking hoof xrays

Clinics all over the the world are discovering new & exciting uses for Soft-Ride Boots!

The latest is to aid in horse stability while taking xrays. Previously the horse was made to stand on a block during the xray. Alternatively, you can elevate the horse hoof just using a Soft Ride Boot, even if the hoof is shod.

Soft Ride Patented Gel Orthotic & Equine Comfort Boots, manufactures patented equine comfort boots and deep-gel orthotics. The semi-rigid, rocker bottom boot-sole reduces the break-over point, combined with the volume and type of gel enables the barefoot or shod horse to find his most comfortable hoof angulation. The deep-gel under the hoof-wall, reduces pressure on the hoof-wall allowing horses the beneficial mechanics of natural sole support.

Laminitis 911 from the Animal Health Foundationís Donald M. Walsh, DVM

Your horse is lame. Very lame. It's time to call the vet. What happens next?ouíve been watching your horse closely. At first you werenít sure; maybe he was just stiff. But this morning you know something more than that is wrong. You had to pull him out of his stall. He didnít want to turn around to be clipped into the cross-ties. Heís shifting his weight. When he does walk, he looks like heís leaning back on his heels.

When the other horses buck and play in the pasture, heís standing by the gate. You touch his feet and theyíre warm. You can feel a strong, bounding pulse at the back of his pastern. He wonít let you pick up a foot.

This is it. Youíre calling the vet. You describe the symptoms and yes! this is a medical emergency.

The vet will be there today.
