Can you turn a horse out in hoof boots?
Well-Known Member. If you’re only using them to turn out in, most boots can be used, as long as the wear period is built up. Endurance riders using hoofboots will have them on the horse for much greater than a turnout period in some cases, with no adverse effects.
Does my horse need bell boots?
Bell boots provide protection from interference from the hind feet, which can overreach or clip the front feet during riding or turnout. If your horse tends to lose shoes in turnout, or finishes a ride with dirt marks, scrapes or bruises on his heels or pasterns, he may benefit from wearing bell boots.
How tight should tendon boots be?
The general rule is that boots should fit snug with enough room to press a finger between the horse’s leg and the boot. Too tight and you’ll pinch a tendon or restrict the blood flow that is essential during exercise. Too loose and dirt or footing material can sneak inside the boot and become an irritant.
