Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between the SPORT and ENDURANCE models?
The endurance sole is suitable for dry ground, while the sport sole is specially designed for wet and muddy.
How do I measure the hoof to determine the size
You must measure the width and length of the unshod hooves a few days after they have been cut. If you have any doubts about how to do this, consult our “taking measurements” section.
I already have the measurements, what size does my horse need?
The size chart shows a range of measurements for each size. These measurements correspond to the width and length of the hoof. Find the size that fits using these measurements.
What happens if I receive the boots and they are not the correct size for my horse?
You can change them if they’re not the right size. To ensure they are not damaged in any way, they cannot be changed if they are, you can put the hoof in a thin plastic bag like a sock when you first try them, placing a piece of cardboard or carpet under the sole. If you need to change the size, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is this boot suitable for irregular-shaped hooves, underrun heels, contracted or asymmetric hooves?
Yes, the Trainer 2019 offers you the possibility of adjustment through heat application, so it can be specially adapted to fit any hoof shape.
What colours are available?
The Trainer model comes in all black. Personalisation is possible through easily interchangeable spare parts in other colours.
Are all parts of the boot replaceable?
Yes, all parts are replaceable. You can find out how to order new parts in the Trainer 2019 instruction guide.
Can I use a P size (rear-fitting) for my horse’s front hooves?
Yes, P size generally fits rear hooves better due to their typically more elongated shape, however, there are some horses where this is also true of the front hooves./p>
How long do the boots last?
Floating Boots soles are manufactured from polyurethane and high-resistance natural rubber, with a lifetime of up to around 1000km. As always, this is dependent on a number of factors, such as the horse’s weight, the type of ground being ridden on, etc…
Correct measurement of your horse's hooves is one of the most important steps to take to get a good fit and optimum performance. Surely none of us would jog in a pair of trainers that were too big or too small, so do not expect our horses to do it !!
We explain below how to take the required measurements step by step:
Remember that to take a correct measurement you must do it with the hoof unshod and after its last natural cut. The hoof should have, at least, balanced heels and a good Mustang roll.
For a correct measurement you will need only a rigid retractable measuring tape that measures in mm and a clean hoof.
References for taking the measurements
References to take into account when taking the correct measurements of the hooves:
- Width:blue line (maximum hoof width).
- Length:red line (distance between heel buttress and toe).
Hoof width measurement
To take the correct measurement, measure the hoof at its widest point.
Remember that the maximum width will not always be at the same point in all hooves, as this depends on the particular shape of the hoof.
Be sure to place the tape measure as straight as possible from one side to the other, as a diagonal position of the tape will give incorrect measurements.
Hoof length measurement
This is the measurement from the toe to the heel butresses. To take this measurement correctly you must locate both heel buttresses, which is where the wall of the hoof ends, draw an imaginary straight line between them and take the measurement from this line to the toe of the hoof passing through the centre of the frog.
Remember that the length of the hoof does not include the heel bulbs as they will be contained in the heel of the boot and not in the sole.
Using a straight ruler or a rasp to mark the line that joins both heel buttresses can help when taking the hoof length measurement.
Special cases; hooves with unbalanced heels
It is possible that in drawing the line between the two heel buttresses you find that this line is not straight but diagonal, this means that the heels are unbalanced. In this case also take the measurement from the toe to the heel butress that is furthest away, but it is advisable to consult with your podiatrist so they can be correctly balanced.
