Innovative hoof boot from Finland for barefoot running horses. Thanks to the many adjustment options, the FLEX Boot fits many hoof shapes.
FLEX Boots are sold individually and supplied as a complete set of boot, gaiter and strap.
You can also buy all parts separately if you need to replace any of the components.
Please specify alternative colours in the order process if the 1st colour choice you require (neoprene gaiter / backstraps) is not currently in stock.
The FLEX Boots are the softest hoof boots on the market. They are durable and easy to put on and take off. They have been carefully designed with the horse's well-being as the top priority.
FLEX Boots are light and slim, they are comfortable for the horse.
FLEX Hoof Boots are ﬂexible, supple and durable barefoot hoof boots that provide protection without compromising the function of the hoof mechanism.
The FLEX boot has a unique sole. It is laterally and medially ﬂexible. It takes the hardest pressure off the footing but allows the horse to really feel the ground.
|For unrestricted pleasure with the hoof boot, horse owners should round the horse's hooves approx. weekly:|
Any sharp and pointed edges; hooves that come up toe first because they are too long; undershot heels; high heels or a hoof wall that mainly carries the weight alone; all this damages the shoe. A good trim based on anatomy is not only beneficial for the horse, but also for the function of the boot. That is why Flex Boot is a "holistic" hoof boot.
For young horses, the Flex Boot is a perfect way to protect the feet from excessive wear and tear, and not make the feet numb. It is like a barefoot shoe for humans.
The Flex Boot has a unique sole that allows you to add 10 to 12 studs per hoof boot.
Flex Boots fit many different hoof shapes and sizes.
-However, if the hoof width is more than 10 mm greater than the length, the FLEX Boots are not ideal for your horse.
-If the hooves are very narrow and the horse has a habit of twisting the legs a lot, FLEX Boots may not be suitable for your horse either.
