How to choose the correct size boot for your horse.
The easiest way to work out the correct size boot is to measure the circumference of your hoses fetlock. It is more important to have the circumference correct than the height of the boot. There must be an overlap of 2cm – 4cm for the boot to be fitting correctly, therefore distributing the hot cold cell evenly around the whole cannon bone, down to the fetlock joint.
Example: If you measure your horses front fetlock joint at the widest part and it is 31cm and the hind fetlock is 37cm then you should select size – Medium for the front and Large for the hinds. (Most horses will be a size larger on the hinds.)
