The Hoof Wrap Bandage was specifically designed for comfort and convenience. They are ideal for common hoof problems including abscesses, thrush or stone bruises. They can also be used for temporary protection in the event of loosing a shoe.
Made with four layers of 1600 denier ballistic nylon, reinforced with industrial stitching and includes an extreme grip fastening system to make it very durable, even for turnout.
They are user-friendly and very easy to apply as they have a step by step numbering system printed directly on the bandage (see below). They come with a 1/2" thick EVA foam pad for additional comfort.
The manufacturer also produces gel pads which are very unique as they are infused with Jojoba and Tea Tree oils making them naturally antibacterial. This helps sooth sore feet whilst keeping bacterial infections at bay. The gel pad is 3/8" thick and is extremely cushy. They come in one size (5 3/4" diameter) and can be cut to fit most hoof sizes. They are $17 US per pair.
They are a professional grade, multiple use bandage. The average lifespan of 7 - 12 days will vary depending on the horse and conditions of use. This is a guideline that has often been surpassed by actual field results. They are machine washable which enables them to be quickly removed, cleaned and reapplied.
This product is extremely lightweight (4.7 oz) so easy to carry with you for emergency use on trail rides, so you never have to worry about being stranded if you should loose a shoe!
They were reviewed and recommended by the Horse Journal and awarded Editor's Choice in 2009 and have many great testimonials on their website.
They are not size specific and will fit most hoof sizes. The unique design allows the bandage to fit 80% of horses with a hoof diameter between 4" to 5.5".
$20 (US) each. The manufacturer offers a 100% Money Back Guarantee and will exchange or refund your money if for any reason you are not satisfied with the product.
