Soft-Ride recommends the following products for Stabling:

Soft-Ride Comfort Boots

Be proactive and make our boots part of your daily routine to comfort your horse from today’s hard surfaced stables.

Professional riders use them on all four hooves to be soothe and be proactive for their animal’s health.

  • Soft-Ride Boots enable the hoof wall (shodded or unshodded) to sink into our deep gel orthotic which increases the sole contact areas providing support and comfort for the whole hoof.
  • The patented toe bumper protects the fabric of the boot which is especially important when horses have shoes on them.
  • All Soft-Ride Boots sizes 2-7 include a pair of standard turquoise orthotics, and sizes 8-10 include a pair of standard purple orthotics. Speciality pairs of orthotics can be purchased additionally.
  • Soft-Ride Deep Gel’s unique elastomeric properties help keep tendons, connective tissue, muscles, and ligaments healthy. They help shorten recovery time. The semi-rigid boot containerizes the gel when compressed by the hoof sole/ hoof wall. The deep gel is redirectionalized up into the sole. The gel pumps the sole of the hoof every time the horse weights and un-weights.
  • Rockered Outsole: eases the tension on the deep digital flexor tendon. The semi-rigid rockered sole move the break-over point back.
  • Breeding season brings a spike in sore footed broodmares. Mares with a history of laminitis or thin soles to and from the breeding shed can cause inflammation and pain. In some instances, this can trigger a severe episode of laminitis, causing the mare to be in acute pain. By applying the Soft-Ride boots, management may be able to reduce the soreness they are treating during the season.
  • Soft-Ride Gel Orthotic Inserts

    Soft-Ride specialty Deep Gel Orthotics have been proven to provide comfort for a horse and slide easily into the correlating sized Soft-Ride boots. All Soft-Ride gel orthotics conform to and support the sole of the hoof as well as the hoof wall and can be used on unshod or shod horses.

    Soft-Ride Orthotics

  • Soft-Ride orthotics are sold individually or in pairs.
  • Standard turquoise orthotic is included in each boot ordered.
  • Soft-Ride offers 6 varieties of interchangeable orthotic inserts allowing you to fine tune the boot for comfort or therapeutic needs. Consult with your veterinarian or equine podiatrist for suggested uses.
  • All of our insert pads are easily washed with soap and water.
  • Dual-density Specialty Orthotics

  • Firm sole support in the rear two-thirds of the foot.
  • Softest cushioning below tip of P3 (coffin bone).
  • Soft-Ride Ice Spa

    Soft-Ride knows how important your horse’s comfort and health is to you. Our easy-to-use, uniform cooling boot can be used as a preventative measure after a tough workout to soothe aching joints and muscles or aid in the healing of a lame horse.

    How Does the Boot Work?

    The Deep Gel Spa Boot fully covers knee to hoof and can be used on both front and hind legs. The bag envelops the leg in shaved ice for maximum cooling circulation around the hoof and the leg, reducing heat and alleviating signs of pain.

  • The easy-to-use system features a portable, lightweight cooling system combined with the highly effective Soft-Ride Deep Gel Comfort Boot. Using the Soft-Ride Deep Gel Spa Boot with Soft-Ride Orthotics lets your horse comfortably handle subtle weight shifts while supporting the hoof and enabling the horse to find the most comfortable hoof angle.
  • Why Cold Therapy?

    It also soothes aching joints and muscles, and shortens injury recovery time. The Soft-Ride Deep Gel Spa Boot is more effective and economical than dry cold packs or powered continuous-flow cold-water systems. And the boot is more horse-friendly than awkward soaking tubs or used IV bags.

    We recommend you order a Soft-Ride Comfort Boot and Orthotic for the opposite hoof when getting the Soft-Ride Spa Boot for the treated leg to provide balanced load for your horse.

    Testimonials

    “I am a reining competitor who lives in northern Alberta, Canada. Needless to say winters pose unique problems for our reining horses here. Soft-Ride Comfort Boots allow my horse to move safely from the barn to the trailer and back again in all kinds of weather and questionable footing. Even more exciting is that my horse can actually enjoy fresh air romping in his paddock and I have the peace of mind knowing that he is not going to slip and fall in his sliders because he is wearing his winter boots, aka Soft-Ride Comfort Boots! Take that icy snowy Alberta winters!!!" -Susan. Alberta, Canada

    “I am a proud Soft-Ride customer. They have made a huge difference in my horse. For example, my horse and I are currently in Murfreesboro, TN at the Novice Championships. We arrived Sunday night and Monday morning I noticed my horse's legs were swollen due to standing on gravel underneath the shavings in his tent stall. I immediately put his Soft-Rides on and a few hours later the swelling had gone down completely. I was relieved to have Soft-Rides for my horse at the show. Needless to say my horse is wearing them everywhere at this show to prevent swelling and for comfort. I do not know what I would do without them. I not only use them for stalling I use them for transportation to the shows and they are used at home to help prevent my horse from getting thrush. I highly recommend Soft-Rides to any horse.” -Seonna

    “I love my Soft-Rides! And so do my horse Grumpy. Being 16 years young I decided he needed more comfort. He's always been a spooky type horse, so I thought putting these on him would be a struggle. But he never spooked nor hung back once, it's safe to say he was definitely jellin’ with his Soft-Rides!” -Cailee

    “I always borrowed a pair of Soft-Rides, and my mare, Holly, didn’t want to give them back! She tries to bite when we take them off, seems like Holly would love to have her own.” -Pam

    "Thanks again and keep up the great work! You are changing the lives of horses around the world..." -Miki

    "...He has worn Soft-Riders most of the time for about two years now, and trots and gallops around his pasture like a colt. He thanks me every day for his time with his pasture buddies and green grass..." -Lynne

    "We encourage clients to use Soft-Ride Boots for general transportation purposes, whether it is across the country to the Quarter Horse Congress or oversees to the World Equestrian Games. Just as you would use a standing support bandage to protect the limbs, we recommend using Soft-Rides to support and protect the feet." -Dr. Alan Donnell,DVM

    "When we make a long haul the horses need some time to recover. In the past they've been slightly sore, and not ready to go work right away. However, with the Soft-Ride Comfort Boots the horses stepped off the trailer fresher, with more energy. The difference the Soft-Ride Comfort Boots made was significant. I highly recommend them." -Brian Bell, 6-Time NRHA World Champion

    "“I borrowed a pair of your Soft-Ride comfort boots from a friend of mine and they helped my horses (two mares that qualified for World) all week on the concrete. I honestly believe the comfort boots helped us win TWO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP finalist buckles! I have my first Florida High School rodeo in Oct and I believe in my heart I have the winning horse and that she sure does deserve Soft-Rides for traveling!!! Thank you for paying it forward with these boots!!Thank you!!” -Olivia

    “Last November I purchased an off the track 3 yr old. I planned to fly to Texas where friends were already traveling with a horse trailer and travel from there to pick up my horse in Oklahoma. The night before my flight I was speaking with a rodeo colleague about my apprehensions of traveling so far with a horse I didn't know and with people that needed to hurry home. Straight through travel would be about 24 hours and I knew that would be rough on any horse. My friend suggested I use Soft-Ride boots and let me borrow hers. I had never heard of Soft-Ride and I got some funny looks as my backpack filled with 4 strange round objects went through airport security but I took them along. We arrived at 10 pm to check out the prospect I had only seen in pictures. Within 20 minutes I had sealed the deal and purchased my first off the track Appaloosa. We switched halters and put on the Soft-Ride boots before loading her up for the long ride home. The drive went on, state after state and fill up after fill up, my filly was traveling like a pro. At 23 hours we pulled into my driveway. I backed my filly off the trailer and did a close inspection. Not one scratch, not a bit of swelling, no heat what-so-ever, and no response to a soreness exam. My 3 yr old was home safe and SOUND and my journey to the 2015 barrel futurities could begin! I was impressed with the Soft-Ride boots and hope to have a set of my own before traveling the country for my first year of futurities and WPRA. Thanks for creating a great and much needed product!” -Katie, Florida

    “Soft-Ride boots have helped both my mares haul better and stand comfortably at the trailer for long days of barrel racing. They have also helped the one mare not paw so much since they are heavier duty!!! I love them and so do my horses” -Jamie, Montana

    “I bought my first set of Soft-Rides about 10 months ago for my barrel horse that kicked in the trailer. Didn't matter what kind of trailer he was in stock or slant he kicked the whole way and would be sore by the time I got to a barrel race. Just one time of using Soft-Rides on all four feet he quit kicking in the trailer. He traveled and stalled better and was much more relaxed and not sore at all when I unloaded him. I'm a FIRM believer in the Soft-Rides and how shock absorbent they are!” -Monica

    Two years ago I moved from the IL/WI border to the great state of Texas! I wanted to give my horse the most comfortable accommodations possible so I chose Soft-Ride boots, I knew without a doubt this is going to be the best option. After a 20 hour drive, stopping every 5 hours, only taking them off to clean out & put back on, my horse was happy, content, unfatigued, and not phased he'd just been moved 1,000 miles! I recommend them to everyone, these boots have me a believer. After all, wouldn't you want to be taken care of too.” -Megan. Decatur, TX

    As both an avid barrel racer and 4th year veterinary student I have seen the benefits of Soft-Ride boots first hand in all three categories of transportation, stabling and injury/prevention. I keep my barrel horse barefoot and she never hauls anywhere without her Soft-Rides. The saying is ‘no foot, no horse’ and I truly believe that her Soft-Rides keep her feeling good traveling down the road competing. As a veterinary student I’ve also had the chance to see many cases come through the hospital that have in some way benefited from Soft-Rides: from keeping an already foundered horse comfortable to preventing a horse at risk from foundering. Through all of my experiences as both a competitor and veterinary professional I have found Soft-Rides to be a very useful product in many aspects of horse care and I absolutely recommend them!” -Stefani Ratcliffe

    “Soft-Ride boots have made all the difference in the world in traveling with them. These boots allow my barrel horses to travel comfortable and relieve the soreness that their feet encounter while being in the trailer for long periods. They are performing better and feel better while competing thanks to these boots...all of my horses now have a full set on all feet!!!!!” -Christy

    “We never leave home without Soft-Rides on our horses. My barrel horse never travels without Soft-Rides on all four feet. By using Soft-Rides we know we are giving our horses a comfortable ride while on the road. Maintaining your show horses on the road can be strenuous. Soft-Rides are the best drug free, easy application as well as cleaning, and most durable premier product on the market today. Soft-Ride is a family owned and operated company they are easy to reach and ready to help your horses to be the best they can be! We love Soft-Ride and your horse will too.” -Marty Barry and Eight Alarm 2013 AQHA High Point Barrels
    Jon Barry Training Stables

    “Since buying my Soft-Rides I've seen major improvements in my two main barrel horses, Tango and Moon. The boots really help relieve some the stress of hauling in a trailer 2+ hours to a rodeo or barrel race, and then getting out of the trailer to perform within a couple hours. Both of my horses have performed better after traveling with their boots on. The first time Moon used them he was in the top 10 at a big rodeo with over 80 girls, and ran the second fastest time of the night we entered. The first time Tango used them to haul to a barrel race he finished 2nd in the 1D of the adult class and 2nd in the 1d of the open class, this was only his 3rd show since a 2 year hiatus for him, he will not travel without his Soft-Rides! At the end of this month I will be competing in the NBHA world show in Perry GA. The stalls are concrete floors, and I'm happy to know that my horse Tango will be as comfortable as ever with his Soft-Rides on. Thank you for creating a great product!” -Amanda

    “My daughter has a 14 yr old Appendix QH mare, Rosie, that she primarily trains & shows Dressage and Western Dressage. Several years ago Rosie sustained an injury to her right hind hoof - a nail pierced her sole and the sheath of the deep digital flexor tendon. While Rosie was able to recover and continue training and showing, she still favors her right hind leg by cocking it forward to relieve weight when she has had a good workout or a long show day. This past summer, my daughter had an opportunity to be a demo rider for a Horse Judging Camp at A&M University in college station. We drove almost four hours to get to the camp. They warmed up & rode for about an hour and then we drove almost four hours to get home. We were almost home when smoke started pouring out from my truck's engine. We wound up sitting in the parking lot of a gas station for almost two hours waiting for a friend to come and take Rosie home in my trailer so I could have my truck towed. The incredible part about this story is that Rosie used to paw a bit in the trailer if it wasn't moving. But, since we got Soft-Ride boots for Rosie, she doesn't paw anymore. During the entire time Rosie was in the trailer on this trip - roughly 10 hours! - she never pawed!!! As I watched her stand in the trailer while we were waiting, I never saw her rest her right hind leg, either! Thanks to Soft Ride-Boots, Rosie is travelling much more comfortably. Thanks for helping us help our star player!” -Stacie

    • "My team roping “head” horse is 19 years old and has ringbone. In the past I have kept him on Bute or something similar. At the end of January his kidneys failed. after getting him well enough to ride I had another problem. I was not able to give him any more Bute. I was going to Oklahoma City to the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo and the stalls are on concrete. A friend of mine loaned me a pair of Soft-Ride boots. he told me that they would keep my horse sound and they did just that. I was there for five days and he (my horse) never felt better. When it was over we were the DNCFR champs. My horse feels better with the boots than the Bute." - R.L.

    Cold therapy helps keep tendons, connective tissue, muscles, ligaments healthy and shortens injury recovery time. The Soft-Ride Deep Gel Spa Boot is more effective and economical than dry cold packs or powered continuous-flow cold-water systems. And the boot is more horse-friendly than awkward soaking tubs or used IV bags.

    How Does the Boot Work?

    The Deep Gel Spa Boot fully covers knee to hoof and can be used on both front and hind legs. The bag envelops the leg in crushed ice for maximum cooling circulation around the hoof and the leg, reducing heat and alleviating clinical signs of pain.

    We recommend you order a Soft-Ride Comfort Boot and Orthotic for the opposite hoof when getting the Soft-Ride Spa Boot for the treated hoof to provide a balanced load and reduce the possibility of counter limb laminitis.

    Deep Gel Spa Boot Features

  • Rigid foam collar and removable vertical fiberglass battens provide non-irritating yet stable support that prevent the Spa Boot from sagging. Four brass grommets in the collar grant access for suspenders if needed.
  • Urethane fabric construction enables the flexible waterproof boot to fold down making it easy to put on a sore hoof.
  • Two waterproof zippers make it simple to remove and replace the boot allowing you to inspect the horse’s leg and hoof. Tube of zipper lubricant/sealer is included.
  • Deep gel pumping orthotic adds cushioned comfort while channeling cold water to the bottom interior of the hoof.
  • Convenient draining system furnishes different levels for self draining, making it easy to release and change water without removing the boot. The drain is raised above the hoof preventing you from letting out too much cold water when adding more ice.
  • Hoof retention collar holds the foot centered in the boot while eliminating the problem of a horse raising itself out of the bag, but still allows the convalescing horse freedom of movement. Two different sized retention collars are supplied to ensure the best fit for your horse.
  • Top retention collar is made of strong yet soft material that allows for long duration therapy without water escaping when a horse needs to lay down in such cases as acute laminitis.

    Soft-Ride Cast Rocker

    Soft-Ride Cast Rocker Base Available only through or prescribed by veterinarians.

    The Cast Rocker Base is an innovative podiatric device that fits on the bottom of a leg cast to provide a rocker bottom allowing the horse to find a naturally comfortable position. It also helps protect the cast bottom from abrasions, dirt and water.

    Casting provides rigid support allowing the horse to stand and use a limb during convalescence. It can also add external reinforcement for internal fixation devices such as plates or screws used in fracture repair.

    Equine leg casts are used to immobilize limbs suffering from: - Bone fractures - Tendon and ligament injuries - Wounds - Abnormal growth and development Increasingly, veterinarians are casting the hoofs of laminitic horses to stabilize the limb to prevent further injury from the disease. To help prevent counter limb laminitis, many practitioners will pair a Soft-Ride Comfort Boot with Deep Gel Orthotics to protect the “good” foot.

    The casting process can create difficulties when the procedure fixes the leg in an awkward position. For example, when casting a horse lying down in a non-weight bearing state, the hoof may inadvertently be set in an unnatural position with little or no tension on the ligaments and tendons.

    How Soft-Ride Cast Rocker works

  • Cast Rocker helps protect and stabilize a horse’s leg cast by providing more secure and natural footing.
  • Accommodative rocker bottom allows the horse to find their most comfortable position by providing rotation (self adjusting 5-30 degree) to enable reduction of torque on the hoof and bone column.
  • Cast Rocker greatly reduces the ground contact area for a horse. For example, a typical cast bottom would be about 8 inches x 8 inches or 64 square inches. A suitable rocker attachment would be about 4 inches x 5 inches or 20 square inches (about 30% of the surface of the cast bottom); thereby, reducing the force applied to the top of the cast. Smaller rockers will reduce the ground contact even further.
  • Fiberglass casting material is well suited for use with the Soft-Ride Cast Rocker. The conventional method of leg casting includes placing a fabric stocking on the leg and then overlay with casting tape. As the casting tape is applied, the stainless straps of the Cast Rocker may be incorporated into the last layer of casting tape.
  • Cast Rocker protects the cast bottom from water, dirt and abrasions.
  • Soft-Ride Cast Rocker

  • Sold as a single unit.
  • Available in 6 sizes.
  • Soft-Ride Super Rocker

    Soft-Ride Super Rocker Kit Available only through or prescribed by veterinarians.

    The Super Rocker is a non-invasive podiatric device that attaches to the bottom of a Soft-Ride Comfort Boot allowing the horse to find a comfortable natural position to relieve stress on a sore, injured or diseased hoof while reducing tension on tendons and ligaments. Our easy-to-install system enables a sore, lame horse to be more comfortable and remain active with the least amount of trauma to the hoof capsule.

    Soft-Ride Deep Gel Comfort Boot combined with a Super Rocker reduces painful and damaging torque on the lamina interface with the hoof wall, bone column and ligaments/tendons. The support of the deep gel orthotic inside the Soft-Ride Comfort Boot combined with the mechanics of the Super Rocker provides cost effective treatment while the horse is in an acute (unstable) phase and can replace or postpone aggressive hoof treatments and surgeries.

    A practitioner can quickly and easily attach a Super Rocker on a Soft-Ride Boot for enhanced break over without traumatizing the hoof. This is especially critical while the hoof is in the ever changing acute phase of many injuries and diseases.

    How Soft-Ride Super Rocker works

  • Super Rocker reduces vertical, lateral and rotational torque on the hoof wall interface to the bone column.
  • The accommodative (self adjusting by 5-30 degree) rocker bottom allows the horse to find their own most comfortable hoof angle. A neutral resting position is designed in the back section of the Super Rocker.
  • The interchangeability of the Super Rocker enables the practitioner to confidently and cost effectively prescribe the most appropriate sized Super Rocker thru studying the horse’s movement and dialing in the best break over position by evaluating if the horse is comfortable with more or less stability.
  • Using x-rays through the boot, a veterinarian can temporarily tape the Super Rocker on the sole of a Soft-Ride Boot to determine the proper rocker alignment to the position of the coffin bone relative to the ground. Taping allows for easy positioning adjustments of the Super Rocker prior to attachment to the boot.
  • Positioning of the Super Rocker on the base of the boot sole is also left up to a veterinarian depending on the x-rays results. The usual recommended position is the back of the Super Rocker aligned with the back sole of the Soft-Ride Boot.
  • Soft-Ride Super Rocker Kit

  • Soft-Ride Super Rocker Kit is available in 6 sizes and it coordinates with the same sized Soft-Ride Boot. Sizing recommendations are a starting point depending on a veterinarian's treatment plan.
  • The mounting kit consists of a set of semi-rigid dual-density polymer Super Rockers, 8 stainless fasteners, nut driver and drill bit. Standardized mounting hole patterns allow easy switching between various sized Super Rockers.
  • Super Rockers can be customized by using a rasp or knife.
  • Note: If a horse is in a cast, we recommended you add a Soft-Ride Comfort Boot with a Super Rocker on the opposing limb to counter limb length disparity.

    Testimonials

    “Last year about we were at the point we were going to have to make a decision about having our beautiful rescue horse, Sampson, down as he was dealing with horrible laminitis issues that were from before we rescued him. We had dealt with issues for over a year and he was getting worse, and had bad rotation going on. We finally ordered him some Soft-Rides and from day one he was way more comfortable. He lived in them 24/7 with us taking off at night long enough to check for anything in boots or any rubbing. We did this for a couple months before we found the perfect horseshoer to help him. After one shoeing we had out super riding horse back! The couple months in Soft-Rides gave us hope until we could get proper shoes. Unfortunately, this past April Sampson ate a poisonous weed in a pasture he normally wasn't in and we lost him. I wish his boots fit my other horse we own as we became quite the believers. If we get another horse that we rope or run barrels on we will be ordering a set for that horse to wear while hauling.” -Laura

    “We owe a lot to Soft-Ride and their product. Our old gal has badly foundered feet and the difference these boots with the orthotics have made in her comfort level is only reason that we are able to keep her at her age of almost twenty seven. They are durable and have been through evening a Canadian climate can throw at them.” -Harriet. Ontario, Canada

    “When I got my horse in July 2013 he had a quarter crack and lots of other hoof issues. For starters, he was low on the heels and long on the toes. Just a sad hoof. A few months ago, I decided to try going barefoot to see if it would help some of my problems. I've been using my Soft-Rides 24/7 since then and the results are amazing. His heels are less contracted and his hoof growth is through the roof. My farrier said that he has never seen anything so effective. He asked me to write it down so he could give it to his clients with foundered horses and laminitis. I tried lunging him without the boots and I couldn't, so I put the boots back on and send him off to the pasture... Well, he was running around like he was stepping on clouds. Soft-Ride Boots are something that everyone should have is their tack box. At the barn it's becoming a routine check list item...
    Do I have fly spray?
    Do I have polo wraps?
    Do I have feed?
    Do I have my Soft-Ride Boots?...
    I only wish I had known about this boots 1 year ago when I got my horse. Thanks Soft Rides for Providing comfort and stability for my trusted steed.”
    -Fernando

    "I purchased a pair of boots from you in 2010 that basically saved my mare's life. Not to mention the foal she went on to have. Fibi was a grade A showjumper and was featured in a BBC programme a few years ago called "Only Fools on Horses". We love Fibi very much and with treatment and your boots, we got her sound and well. I always recommend the boots as I hope other horses over here get the chance to benefit from them. Now there is a another life on the way... perhaps I should call the foal "Soft Ride"!" -Yvonne

    "Thank you for your wonderful product. Your Soft Ride boots saved the day when my IR/Metabolic American Shetland suffered a "perfect storm" and had a major laminitic episode. I really feel that I would not have been able to bring him back without your wonderful boots. He could not tolerate shoeing, even on meds, the pain was too great and I refused to sedate him so that further invasive hammering procedures to be forced on him and I could not find anyone to apply a reverse shoe as a glue on. While it was still tough to watch him trying to get around, the Soft Ride boots were exactly what we needed to get him through the nasty acute phase. As much as he has worn them they wash up great and show no signs of wear. Bless you for providing so much comfort while my pony is healing. He's gradually weaning away from needing boots but we will make sure to keep them at the ready and use them for trailering and whenever Dash needs a little extra help with concussion." -Sherry

    “I just want to take a moment to share what Soft-Ride boots have done for my beloved rodeo horse, Jet. Several years ago, he began having soundness issues and was diagnosed with a fairly severe case of Navicular. A friend told me about Soft-Rides. I was skeptical, but it was heartbreaking to see my horse in pain. I decided that if there was a slight chance they'd help my best friend, I'd give them a try. My horse, who was obviously in pain, came alive the first time he wore his Soft-Rides. In that moment, I knew that they were worth every penny! Jet's Soft-Ride boots played a huge role in his soundness and return to competition. He is now retired but I truly believe that he was able to run competitively because of this wonderful product. The extra years that I got to run him are priceless memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. The quality and durability of these boots are like nothing else on the market. I know that I can depend on this great product to keep my horses happy and healthy! All of my competition horses wear Soft-Rides.” -Hilary

    “My daughter has a reining horse and we have struggled the past two years trying to keep him sound. He has a very thin sole on one front foot and gets sore very easy. I was told about the Soft-Ride boots by a friend. I decided to give them a try. Wow, they have been a miracle for him. He usually gets sore at shows and we just took him to Las Vegas for 12 days and he did not take one lame step the whole time we was there..... I am a true believer in Soft-Ride boots..... They are definitely worth the investment!!! Our horse has never been so happy!!! Thanks!!!!” -Stacey

    “There’s no doubt in my mind Soft-Ride boots saved my horse during a terrible ordeal last August. Calvin was bit by a brown recluse spider. The venom went septic in his left hock joint and he almost died- twice. He had to have arthroscopic surgery and was not able to lie down for 14 days. He already has marginal front feet from a bad past farrier and half of his right sole depth is missing- so to stand on mats for 14 days straight would have been a death sentence. We put him in Soft-Rides with the purple cushion at the vet’s and he was able to withstand the pressure. We know beyond a doubt the Soft-Rides saved him as the other hind leg that was not protected with a Soft-Ride boot abscessed out the sole when all was said and done. Not only is my horse here a year later but he just qualified for the AQHA World Show… Thanks to my talented surgeon and Soft=Ride Boots!!! Not only does he now wear Soft-Rides on every trailer trip we use them after every hard work out and he is comfortable and happy. Thank you!” -Karma

    “My thirteen year old Arabian mare, Snuggle Bunny, was diagnosed with Laminitis in March, 2013, The vet tried various things to make her more comfortable, but nothing helped. She continued to become more and more sore. I was working with Dr. Reilly at Equine Medical Surgical and started giving her HEIRO. Dr. Reilly suggested that I purchase some Soft-Ride Comfort boots for her because it would make her more comfortable. As soon as the boots arrived, I put them on Snuggle. After a few tentative steps, she walked out of her stall into the paddock and stood there for a few minutes. Then, she walked out further, and started to trot. That was the first time in two months that she had even attempted to trot. She had always been a high energy mare who trotted everywhere before the laminitis started. Each day she seemed more and more comfortable and more like her old self. The Soft-Ride boots did so much to make her more comfortable. In a week, she was trotting all over the pasture and then took off running! She tossed her head as if to say that she was fine and felt like she did before. I ordered two more sets of Soft Ride boots so that I could rotate them. In September, another spell of laminitis came back and she was much worse than before. I kept the boots on her to the end. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on October 2 and she died with her boots on. Thank you for making a product that gave her so much comfort for eight months.” -Rachel

    “Our 20 year old Quarter Horse gelding, Jack, has suffered from a variety of hoof ailments for almost the entire 5 years we have owned him. He has suffered from navicular syndrome, severe hoof bruising that covered the entire bottom of his hooves, white line disease, abscesses, severe thrush, etc. Over the years, he has had times where he was pasture sound and other times where he couldn't stand. He would get up and lie down repeatedly because the pain was so great. Sometimes he would just lay down and groan, not eat, and shiver in the winter. Our vet was talking about different shoeing options, but wasn't entirely satisfied with anything we were all discussing. Then she mentioned Soft-Ride boots. We decided to give them a try and the first step he took in them was sound! He has not had a lame day since we put them on him! He wears them 24/7 and is very comfortable. He comes out and rolls every morning, and feels good enough to run and buck, when he decides to exert the energy! He is our baby boy and will stay retired, even though he is feeling good now. He spends his days in his pasture, napping in the sun, getting groomed and doted on, and hanging out with his "frenemy," miniature horse.” -Melinda

    “If you haven't yet you must check out Soft-Ride Boots now. They are doing wonders to Jack's feet and everyone should own a pair. I have had issues with Jack's feet for years now and I have had him on this for about 8 weeks now and his hoof has gotten so much better. You do not have to take the shoes off to use them but I did. Every farrier I have had always said how my horse does not grow heel. well, look at him now.” -Odnan

    “John Boy was surrendered to Animal Control and subsequently turned over to United States Equine Rescue League. He was thirteen years old, and severely underweight. Due to the lack of daily foot care and medical treatment, John Boy foundered in his left foot so severely that the coffin bone rotated 22 degrees. When rescued we rescued he was so severely lame he barely made it to the rehabilitation barn. John Boy abscessed in his right front foot, and an x-ray showed an infection running along the coffin bone. The vet at the time, stated that nothing could be done and he should be euthanized. We elected to get a second opinion, and John Boy had two surgeries to remove the infection. In 2008, Dr. Stevens introduced John Boy to the Soft Ride Equine Boots. The boots served two purposes. First, it offered him the extra support and cushion he needed due to the rotation of the coffin bone and the lack of sole depth. The boot also prevented debris getting into the foot. Soft- Ride Equine Boots have served as a life saver to John Boy. The boots keep his feet clean and provided the all important cushion and stability his foot needed to be a somewhat normal horse. He is so use to the boots that he is able to walk, trot and be somewhat mischievous with his boots. John must wear his boots at all time and these prolong his life every single day. Soft-Ride Equine Boots are truly life savers!” -Kim, Virginia

    "Well, we just can't seem to keep quiet about Smoke's amazing recovering from his coffin bone rotation a few years ago. The door opened and I updated and submitted our story to the on-line equine publication entitled, The Horse's Hoof. Anyway, I just wanted to share it with you because you were part of his care, healing and support team! "Thank you" could never be enough! Thanks for having the goal to save horses through knowledge, support, and the best care available!" -Jen

    “I am a Spanish veterinarian and owner of two horses. This year I went to Lexington to do an internship in equine internal medicine in Hagyard equine medical center. When I came back to Spain I found that my 27 year old gelding Goliat hadn't been shod, was having a sub-acute phase of laminitis and also had abscesses in his front hooves. He was very lame, so I did X- Rays and found that his sole was really thin in addition to joint degeneration that he had already. Because of my time in Lexington I knew about Soft-Ride boots so a friend of mine who was in Lexington and was coming back to Spain those days bought these boots. With the anti-inflammatory treatment and a month of wearing the boots now he is much better, he can be turned out with his best friend, my other horse, and his sole is much thicker.” -Elena Solano Agustin, LV Col. 7477

    “Our equine practice loves Soft-Ride Boots! We see mostly performance horses, and Dr. Barrow prescribes them for many of her rehab cases. She has used them on everything from founder to pedal osteitis, and from contracted heels to navicular disease. We always keep a few pairs around to loan to our rehab cases, and many times we end up ordering them a pair of their own for future comfort when traveling or being stalled on harder surfaces. Dr. Barrow believes in Soft Rides so strongly that her own horse, (AQHA Superior Trail and Western Riding) Sterling Assets, never travels without them!” -Barrow Veterinary Services

    I cannot thank the Soft-Ride enough! My mare, Jessie, was diagnosed with laminitis in early July, and was severely lame, in pain, and clearly miserable when the vet came out - it was an extremely sudden and severe onset. The vet wrapped digital support cushions around both fronts, and we iced her around the clock for a few days. The vet recommended Soft-Ride boots so we ordered them right away. Jessie wore her Soft-Ride boots from the day they arrived, through July while she was on stall rest, then also before we felt comfortable putting shoes back on her, but while she was able to have limited paddock access. They never created rubs, they never twisted, and they fit like they were tailored just for her. I would clean them and allow them to air out for about an hour a day, and she would breathe a sigh of relief when I put them back on. Last week (mid September), she just got shoes put back on and is doing fantastic. She had no rotation and is on her way to getting back to right where she was before the incident. I cleaned the boots up and they look practically new again; they will certainly remain in my tack room for future use, be it for lost shoes, laminitic attacks, or trailering. I cannot praise enough, not only the product, but the company itself. I am convinced my mare's fast and uncomplicated recovery are attributed to Soft-Ride boots. They were certainly one less thing I had to worry about, compared to having to wrap the hooves with pads, having them shift, retain moisture in the wrap, etc. Thank you so, so much, and Jessie and I look forward to using her Soft-Rides for much more than just sore hooves!” -Haily
