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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

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!

Use caution when using studs with SPORT Boots as the sole tread is thinner than Simple Boot. Studs may penetrate through when applying studs to used Sport boots with worn soles.

 

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

My horse had foundered and was unable to get around on minimal sole. We tried other boots with minimal success. But now with the comfort of SIMPLE Boots he is no longer stall bound and I'm able to turn him out. SIMPLE Boots made the difference... this is the best product!

Thank you for sending my new SIMPLE Hoof Boots in time for our Horse 'N Hound jumping performance at Horsefest this past weekend! My draft cross horse, Flying W Farms Tiara, is newly barefoot and is quite sore on gravel footing while her hoof transitions to its new barefoot state. Our performance was moved from a grassy field to a limestone gravel arena due to all of the rain we've had. If it weren't for these boots, we would not have been able to perform. I'm happy to say that they fit her beautifully and were quite easy to put on. Tiara was instantly comfortable in them and it showed! Several people came up to me before our performance to ask what they were and purposefully stayed to watch this ultimate SIMPLE Boot test ride over a jump course of 11 fences complete with many tight turns and rollbacks. I was nervous myself as I didn't have much of a chance to try them out before performing, but they worked marvelously! I I'm very impressed and my horse is a happy camper! Here is a picture of me and my horse, Flying W Farms Tiara, in our war horse/gladiator costume complete with our SIMPLE Boots!

P.S.: I took Tiara on another trail ride today on a gravel in her SIMPLE boots with the man who leases her in the saddle and he noticed a HUGE difference in her stride and comfort level as well! She was happy bouncing along the trail like she's never done before!
