    Super inexpensive idea in use at my barn: wrap 2 or 3 rounds of duct tape around the hoof/shoe. Don't put tape on fur or flesh, obviously, so angle correctly around the heel. Top with a pull on...

    I didn't buy/get custom boots and I'm ok with that. Zippers have made the need obsolete.

    1) if you need to, do a one-time deep clean using a glug of ammonia is about half bucket of warm water, or castile soap. If you end up with suds, rinse your sponge and wipe off. I consider these...

    I'm half leasing out my horse. The match was made by my trainer. Trainer also makes sure that horse's work is appropriate: only 2 jumping lessons per week, 1 day off, flatted the remaining days. We...
