The New Trail hoof boot is the very latest generation of Trail hoof boots and a complete upgrade!
GOOD CHOICE FOR: Horses with slightly longer than wide hooves, but also usually work well on round and long hooves (inserts are needed for excessively long hooves, see Parts and Accessories).
PLEASE NOTE: The New Trail aren't ideal for horses with wider than long hooves. They are not intended for long distance or endurance riding as recommended for up to 25 miles, but can often be used for much longer periods depending on fit and terrain etc. The boots are supplied as singles
The New Trail multipurpose horse boots are the second generation Trail hoof boots, and have been given a complete overhaul and significant improvements, many of which are shared by the New Mac (the updated version of the best selling Old Mac G2). The New Trail has the Mac's unique high-tech performance out sole, incorporating the unique hoof suspension system. The sole of the hoof boot is constructed from a specially developed ThermoPlastic Urethane (TPU) compound, which absorbs shock and aids recovery from concussion related injuries, as well as helping to prevent them.
The New Trail features a more refined and improved upper, with a host of improvements over the original Trail boot, making it far more secure and much more resilient to damage. These features include a snug strap included as standard, so the new Trail is more suitable for faster work when used with this strap (but the New Mac is still recommended for tougher conditions or deeper going). This re-engineered back strap features high quality hook and loop instead of a buckle (on the old snug straps) making the strap much easier to use, especially with cold or stiff hands. This back strap is also removeable and replaceable, and can be reversed to make a boot fit a left or right hoof, so you can remove the strap to make the boot more similar to the old Trail in terms of being simple to fit if required. The back flaps are now made with a superior hook and loop material, and give a thinner profile thus giving less room for debris to become trapped. The back now features the comfort cup of the Back Country boot, which not only gives a stronger back closure and thinner profile but also offers greater comfort and much reduced chance of rubbing when fitted correctly.
The upper of the New Trail hoof boot is painted from the underside, so they will stay looking good, and larger rivets and a more rigid front shield make this boot much tougher than ever before! The upper roll on the New Trail now features the double neoprene roll as seen in the Transition hoof boots. The inner roll is a close weave to help prevent burrs sticking and embedding into the fabric that will be in contact with the pastern.
The New Trail horse boots can be fastened whilst the hoof is on the ground, so are ideal for horses that dislike having a hoof up for any period of time. New Trail boots open right out to allow entry of the foot. The New Trails come with full fitting instructions, and are sold individually. Comfort pads are advised for use in any hoof boot for the most natural and beneficial experience for your horse. For general use a 12mm medium Old Macs/Trail comfort pad is recommended for New Trail hoof boots.
