Description

Hoof boot studs provide your horse better traction in slippery conditions such as ice, mud and snow.

Things to keep in mind about hoof boot studs:

  • Make sure your boots fit well and your horse is acclimated to wearing them before you apply studs
  • Always apply studs to both boots for proper balance
  • Do not turn horses out wearing studded boots. A frolicking horse can injure himself and others with studded boots.
  • When drilling, make sure the stud does not extend past the sole of the foot. This can especially be a problem on older boots with worn soles.
  • Always use your best judgment when going out for a ride in slippery conditions. Hoof boots provide extra traction, but they do have their limits!

  • Use caution when using studs with Sport Boots, as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boots. Studs may penetrate through older Sport Boots with worn soles.

Installation is easy!

Pre-drill 1/8 inch locator holes with a 3/16 inch drill bit. Lock stud into position on the end of the NEW AND IMPROVED tool. Position end of the stud tread over the drilled hole and slowly drill the stud into the sole tread until the base of the stud head touches the sole. IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

 

Inherent with ice, snow and mud are any variety of slippery conditions. When riding, please use your cautionary judgement regarding safety for you, your horse, and others around you. You should know how your horse will react to being ridden in these types of conditions. Always be cautious when making the decision to go for a snowy ride to ensure everyone gets through the winter safely without injury and can look forward to enjoying the warm sunny rides in the months ahead.

Be sure your boots fit well, before trying them with studs.  Legs, hoofs, pasterns and coronets can be destroyed by the use of studs. Be diligent. Be careful. Do not use studs on one boot and not the other. Horses need balance. Do not turn horses out with studded boots on. Playing around can tear up their legs.  And keep yourself out of the way too. Getting stepped on by a studded hoof is not pleasant. If you are drilling into older boots, please ensure that the stud tread does not extend past the sole of the boot. Boots that are worn down may have a thinner sole and the placement of studs becomes very important. Please use your own thoughtfulness and best judgement.  Always be aware that you have studs in the boots and do not ride in them when they aren’t needed.

Testimonials

I want to thank you for inventing the SIMPLE Boot. I have a 17 year old Hanovarian-Thoroughbred who has arthritis in his hocks. He tends to overreach especially as he gets more tired. I go on 10 to 20 mile trail rides with him but it was getting more and more difficult to keep front shoes on him as he would eventually pull them off. With a 2 week trip to Vermont this past August, I was getting more worried that I might not even be able to ride much for fear of losing a shoe. Well, I started using your Simple Boot this past July and I will never go back to regular shoes again. Even with my horse overreaching there are no pulled shoes so I don't have to travel with an extra boot. Your boot is so easy and fast to put on that I have my husband doing it at times! Mud and rocks are no match for your hoof boot. I never worry about losing a shoe in deep mud anymore. It's such a great feeling! Your boot even works well when it's too big! My horse's front hoofs had to be trimmed back due to a problem and therefore were smaller than before. That wasn't a problem with the Simple Boot. Even though my current pair are probably one size too big for my horse, I can gallop, jump and do everything that I did before without any problems. So thanks so much for the Simple Boot.

Thank you for such a great boot. Two more of the rehab horses are now able to be used! SIMPLE Hoof Boots are wonderful for my rehabilitation program. Many of the boots that are on the market today rub, are not flat on the bottom of the inside or do not stay on the horse. BEFORE I purchased the SIMPLE Boot, I had taken a horse out to the state park to ride. Halfway out on the trail, one hour from the trailer, another brand of boot had rubbed a bloody sore on the horse’s foot.

SIMPLE Boots fit my horses’ hooves like a glove and never rub. I do not worry now when I am out riding far from home with SIMPLE Boots; they stay in place, do not cause harm and are a well made product.
