Sizing Instructions

We recommend these guidelines when measuring your horse and using Soft-Ride boots:

  1. Step 1

    Step 1

    Place the hoof squarely on a sturdy piece of paper or cardboard (such as a manila folder).

  2. Step 2

    Step 2

    It's important to keep your horses hooves trimmed. This will help ensure continued proper fitment and help prevent damage to the boot. 

  3. Step 3

    Step 3

    Measure each hoof to check for discrepancies in hoof size. You may find it necessary to order a different size boot for each foot.

  4. Step 4

    Step 4

    Hold the gel orthotic up to the bottom of the hoof. The gel should overlap the hoof by up to a quarter inch on all sides. This allows for some growth before the hoof is trimmed again. If the foot overlaps the Gel Orthotic in length or width, then the boot is too small.
