Hi - looking for hoof boots for my mare, who is retired, but enjoys standing in a nearby river (good for her arthritis.) She will go in and stand for 10 to 20 minutes.
The trail to get there has some sharp stones, and the river has mostly rounded rocks and a little sand in some places. She transitioned to barefoot really well, but recent experience shows she will appreciate some padding, sole protection if ridden and/or led on rough trails.
The only boots I’ve had her in are Easyboot Clouds, after a recent trim that was too short. The size 1 fit her well just after she was trimmed but became a bit snug as her hooves grew out.
She is also very fine boned, so something that is adjustable at the top might help.
