    Wink Soft-Ride Boots

    I am wanting to buy Soft-Ride boots and wondering what everyone's opinions are on them. I've been looking for a used pair but am wondering how well they hold up and what people's thoughts are on them?

    Love them! They hold up very well and do not turn or getters jammed up with shavings etc... My pony wore them post hospital visit and I would highly recommend them again!

    Awesome! I love them. They seem to hold up well. Very much worth the $.

    My friend's mare wore them for six months straight and they have since been donated to our trimmer to loan out to her clients while they wait for their own boots. They're $$$ but well worth the money and are an absolute miracle for laminitic/foundered horses.

    Another vote for Soft-Rides. They were a great comfort for Willie in both his severe laminitic episodes. Not inexpensive, but do hold up well, as long as you are just using them in the stall. I would not suggest using them for turn-out.

    They are not just for laminitis. My barefoot hunter wears them trailering and at shows when the stall flooring is hard. And anytime at shows if he has to walk on gravel. Take them off ringside.

    Wonderful, wonderful boots! My laminitic mare could wear them 24/7 out in pasture (dry lot) for at least 4 months before they needed replacement.
