  • Article from CoH regarding "hoof wraps" legal

    An article popped up in my Fb saying that "hoof wraps", below the hairline would be legal in competition. I searched thru the rule changes but couldn't find it and the rule book itself still has the old wording of no easy boots. Any judges or TDs here that can clarify?? I really want easy boots to be legal...logically they should be, they protect the foot no more than a steel shoe with a pad.

    Is this the article you are referring to?

    It lists hoof wraps under the Eventing section. I would assume the rule change was for eventing only if you don't see it listed in the rule book. Perhaps a similar rule change could be submitted coping the wording that Eventing used.

      It was a different article but that makes sense that it was in eventing, explains why I couldn't find it. I will look into submitting it (again, I tried in the 90's).

        DR 121.7 includes this....Shoes (with or without cuffs) that are attached with nails or glue, or wraps that do not extend past the hair line of the hoof are permitted.

          The meaning of the rule is that the shoe, wrap etc must be attached with either nails or glue eg cannot be temporary.

            Interesting, as given the age I would have thought the wording was to make it clear that glue-ons are ok, when it used to be assumed only nail-ons were.

              Iirc, it was modified because a lot of glue on shoes started to use fiberglass wraps to help keep the shoe on, and under the old wording they were illegal not because of the glue but because wraps of any kind were not permitted. I vaguely remember the glue on conversation but that was a long time ago.

                Eventer here - for the eventing rule it means the shoes with nails or glue AND boots that don't use nails or glue are now legal in eventing dressage. The Dressage wording I cannot verify, but I helped the guy write the eventing rule suggestion.

                The rule was suggested by someone who wanted to be able to keep his horse barefoot but found that sometimes he wanted shoes. Hoof boots were legal in the jumping phases but not explicitly in dressage. Now they are. So if you get to a show with your barefoot horse and the footing is rough? You can use boots. Horse pulls a shoe in warmup and you can't get to the farrier in time? Hoof boots to the rescue.

                One rationale for passing it was that glue on shoes are kinda like permanent hoof boots. the "not above the hairline' was meant to keep people from interpreting that the could use any kind of leg wraps.

                  Its too bad they couldn't just adopt this for all dressage - the hoof boot option is really nice for the horse that pulls a shoe at the show!

                    I would also love for hoof boots to be legal--my horse is generally barefoot but will occasionally be ouchy in prolonged dry weather, so I'd rather do hoof boots for a couple weeks than shoes and pads for multiple months, like I had to do this year.

                      I'd love that option SO much. My big mare is fine barefoot except for fast work and jumping. 1400lbs and jumping is hard on the wall edges.

                      I'd so much rather throw the boots on her for those spots and leave her barefoot the rest of the time

                        All disciplines allow the general public to submit rule suggestions. I don't know the meeting/schedule of the dressage world, and it's probably too late for 2019, this not being an emergency sort of change, but go ahead and submit it. If you want the whole wording that eventually was passed for eventing let me know. I think it should be allowed in dressage as well.
