In very wet weather (be it snow or rain), to be on the safe side we do not recommend using the boots 24/7 for very long periods of time. Moisture will make its way into the boot from the back and may cause issues, so it’s important you keep a close eye on your horse’s hoof health and take action if necessary.

Can you turn out in hoof boots?
