Hiring Boots - Terms & Conditions
_____

Flex Boots are flexible, durable and easy to use hoof boots that are ideal for all equestrian activities including trail riding, schooling, jumping and driving. They function similarly to human barefoot shoes, providing the horse flexible, effective support whilst allowing the hoof to function in the correct way without restrictions or any discomfort for the horse. Flex Boots are ideal for first time users and seasoned barefoot horses.

Always periodically check the tightness of the Ball Rivets on your boots to make sure they are secure.

Let your horse feel the difference:

  • Superior sole design with correct break over point supports healthy hoof function on every step your horse takes
  • Exceptional traction on all surfaces and suitable for all disciplines.
  • Smart fastening system allows for adjustments to give your horse an ideal, comfortable fit without rubbing.
  • No Velcro or cables that can easily break or get dirty.
  • Flex Boots are incredibly easy and quick to put on and take off. Even kids can do it!
  • Amazing drainage and easy to clean.
  • Designed to support a holistic approach to hoof and horse care.
  • So comfortable, they can be used for 24/7 turnout too!

Thanks to the careful design and advanced technology used to make these boots, they are suitable for use in any weather and terrain; with great drainage and water-repellent materials, you can use them in snow, mud, very dry conditions and anywhere in between. The all-terrain sole gives superb grip, and the boots have pre-drilled holes that allow for easy application of ice studs if this is required.

Flex Pads can be used in the boots to offer additional cushioning and protection for horses that need this, for example if they have thin soles or are recovering from laminitis.

Flex Boots are designed with the horse’s welfare as the main priority. This is why they work so well and are fast becoming the most popular hoof boot all around the world. Flex Boots work best when hooves are maintained in their anatomically correct shape with frequent maintenance trims. Since the boot sole is essentially a cushioned airpad, long toes, high walls or sharp edges can damage the product.

Flex Hoof Boots are available in 15 sizes, from miniature ponies to horses. They are sold individually; to purchase a pair, add two boots to your basket.

Each boot is supplied as a complete set that includes the boot shell with rivets, a TPU gaiter, neoprene gaiter and a back strap.

Below you will find details of which boots have which sized parts...

  • 80/85 - XS Neoprene Gaiter + XS Back Strap
  • 90/95/100 - XS Neoprene Gaiter + S Back Strap
  • 105/110 - S Neoprene Gaiter + S Back Strap

Sizing

Flex Hoof Boots are available in 15 sizes suitable from miniature ponies to horses. FlexPony boots are sizes 80-105, and FlexHorse boots are sizes 110-150.

FlexBoot_size_chart

Flex Boots fit hooves that are +/- 5mm of the listed width measurements, and no longer than the listed length measurement. Hoof measurements should be taken after a fresh trim. Flex Boots fit a variety of different hoof shapes provided the hoof is maintained in its anatomically correct shape. This generally means small maintenance trims at 1-2 week intervals. Flex Boots recommend that the owner should learn how to maintain their horse’s feet between professional visits. By doing so, you can ensure that the horse moves comfortably at all times with correct and well-functioning hooves, and your horse can enjoy these barefoot shoes of the horse world for as long as possible. Flex Boots have created an online course to teach owners how to carry out the maintenance trim, details can be found here: https://www.holistichoofcareforhorseowners.com/

Flex Boots are also available in custom sizes. For horses with thinner or thicker legs, the Flex Custom Boots come with one size smaller or larger TPU gaiters and neoprene gaiters. Please purchase custom size boots here.

Materials

The boot shell, TPU gaiter and back strap are made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), a material that is often called a hybrid between plastic and rubber. TPU offers the flexibility of rubber, but with the strength and durability of plastic.

Neoprene gaiters are made of 5mm thick neoprene with laminated fabric on both sides.

Rivets are made of steel.

Care instructions

Flex Boots are easy to clean and maintain. Simply rinse off any dirt and hang the boots to dry in a well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight. Do not store the boots in a closed space such as a box or in your car. Boot shell, TPU gaiter and back straps can be brushed clean and washed with water. Do not use cleaning products. Neoprene gaiter can be rinsed with water or washed in a washing machine in a cold cycle. Air dry only, do not tumble dry.

    Flex boots

    Published by Alison on 4th Aug 2022

    I have an elderly mare with EMS and she is just recovering from a bout of low grade laminitis. Initially I was using her Cloud boots with thick pads for her limited turnout, then moved on to some Equine Fusions, but they began to rub her heel bulbs. on recommendation from Liz, I purchased a Fit Kit with 8 shells to try, both with and without pads. I took loads of photos and sent them to Liz and we finally decided to try Flex boots, as Liz suggested. They needed a thinner pad than I had been using, but , having used them daily for some portion of turnout and in hand exercise, for the past week, they have not rubbed her heels at all and she is comfortable walking and trotting in them. I highly recommend these boots, so easy to put on, take off and adjust. Lightweight, with more breathability than most boots, they are just exactly what we needed. A huge thanks to Liz, who has been incredibly patient and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and I felt she really cared about my horses comfort above all. A million thanks.

    Brilliant boots

    Published by Emma G on 7th Mar 2022

    Have really put these boots to the test on all sorts of terrain and they’ve not budged! First time hoof boot user and Flex just looked the best in terms of design and functionality - used a fit kit and found horse was slightly between sizes, advised the boots can still work well even when not a perfect fit. This was very much the case, very happy and would buy again.

    Teddys Flex boots!

    Published by Claire on 23rd Feb 2022

    Teddy has had no rubbing at all in his boots and they have stayed on. The main plus is how much better he is going. Not just more comfortable on his actual feet on stoney ground, but he is stepping out with a longer stride and therefore softening to a better outline. It took him a few hacks to realise he could do this and he has had the occasional trip but I am looking forward to him improving all the time thanks to the boots.

    He has always had a choppy, short stride but I had not realised how much better it could be. The ease of putting on and taking off the boots is fantastic, when I think of how we struggled with the Back country boots. It must be much more pleasant for Teddy also. I pop them on, do up the two straps and we are off. I also love how easy they are to clean and quick to dry.

    My daughter came back from uni last weekend as we had a lorry booked for a trip to the beach. We did not need his boots as the initial stones were very large and rounded and then it was very fine sand. He behaved like a five year old. She then hacked him out in the boots a couple of days later and could not believe the difference in his going. She said it was so nice not to have to nurse him over every stoney bit of ground. We could also trot in so many more places.

    Your service has been amazing!

    Flex Boots

    Published by Anna on 15th Nov 2021

    Having struggled with previous brands due to my horse having shiver like symptoms in the right hind I contacted Liz @HoofBootique for advice.
    I needed a boot which was quick and easy to put on and remove, without having to wrestle over the heel bulbs. These were recommended and they most certainly fit the bill.
    They are light, pliable and fit like a glove. My horse is super confident in these and strides out well on all terrains, esp the stoney forestry paths! They stayed on perfectly for fast work and through muddy areas.
    The fitting and adjustment of these boots is super easy. So glad I purchased the Flex boots, fitting them is no longer a chore!!
