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.

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 13 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.

Sizing

Flex Hoof Boots are available in 13 sizes suitable from miniature ponies to horses. FlexPony boots are sizes 80-105, and FlexHorse boots are sizes 110-150.

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 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!!

    Flex Hoof Boots

    Published by Katherine on 30th Oct 2021

    Absolutely thrilled with the flex hoof boots. Super easy to put on and off and to make small adjustments to achieve a great fit. My horse is much more forward going in them, even on the stoniest of tracks. Highly recommend.

    Flex boots

    Following Lizs advice, I bought Flex boots for my thoroughbred mare. She loved them straight away. So far there have been no rubs and they appear to wear well, even on our very stony ground. I have now bought another set for my reired New Forest, who regularly walks out in hand. She also loves them.

    Brilliant all-rounder

    Published by Elena Blanco on 15th Sep 2021

    I have been using hoofboots on various horses for around ten years and Flex boots have become my new favourite boot by far. They are easy to put on, fairly easy to look after and clean (not as easy as Scoots but better than most others), and I think they perform really well on all sorts of terrain. The only negative is that they wear quickly as the material is so soft, but the flip side of that is that they have great grip and the horses are clearly very comfortable in them. It is worth spending time setting them up properly but after that they are easy-peasy!

    These boots are easy to put on and take off. They are great on stony surfaces and my pony appears to find them comfortable. They look super cute too!

    Getting the fit kit is a definite plus. Lots and lots of info to go through but totally worth it once you have chosen your boot and it fits perfectly. Great service from start to finish.

    Flex boots

    Published by Jane Charlton on 16th Aug 2021

    Really impressed with Flex boots. Truly flexible boot with a decent break over - no rubbing or twisting and stayed put! Bought fronts and backs for my young horse and his stride improved. I tried a pair on my recovering laminitic and he LOVED them - I struggled to keep up with his trot! Best boots ever!

    Flex boots

    Published by Bridget Payne on 10th Aug 2021

    Easy to fit once I had adjusted them the first time. Did not twist even though my horse is due a trim. Only tried in the school but walked trotted and cantered with no problems. In fact I think he actually liked them! Have bought some inserts to try too. Early days and need to build my confidence that I can hack with no problems as this is what I bought them for.

    Easy to put on but need to take time to get fit right. Pads give flexibility between trims as foot grows or changes shape. Do not seem to turn on foot.
