The Ultra Jogging Shoe is a very versatile equine hoof boot that can be used for all types of riding and driving as well as rehab. Made by Equine Fusion who have developed a whole range of rubber boots for horses instead of shoes.
When looking for hoof boots for barefoot horses the Equine Fusion jogging shoes for horses are the perfect choice.
They are one of the lightest hoof boots on the market; are breathable and can be washed in the washing machine which makes them perfect as hoof boots for turnout as well as for all types of riding. They are a great choice when choosing equine boots for horses with laminitis or if you want the best trail riding boots for horses. They can also be used for jumping, dressage, competitive trail, paved-road riding or driving.
These Fusion jogging boots have a unique flexible sole which provides great horse hoof protection without inhibiting the natural function of the hoof and ensures that the weightbearing is evenly distributed across the bottom of the horse foot. The sole is made of a flexible rubber material that provides cushioning, shock absorption and traction. It is fully flexible but has a slightly thicker outer ring which provides extra stability for laminitic, sensitive or transitioning hooves. The tread pattern gives good grip without being too aggressive and preventing the natural slide of the hoof as it contacts the ground.
The video below shows why the Equine Fusion Jogging Shoes are the best horse boots. It demonstrates how the flexible sole benefits the horse compared to metal horse shoes or rigid-soled hoof boots (ones made of thick plastic that cannot conform with the hoof).
The Ultra barefoot horse boots’ upper material is very soft and flexible so does not impede the motion of fetlock and pastern joints and is lined with neoprene covered foam to prevent rubbing.
The fastening system consists of internal velcro plus two external straps which makes them easy to put on and provide a secure and snug fit around the pastern.
The hoof shoes come in a choice of two colors: red or black and have reflective detailing to make them visible in low light conditions. They are available in sizes 10-15 which fits hooves from 9.5cm - 15.4cm long and 9.5 - 14.5cm wide. If you are looking for hoof boots for ponies or miniature hoof boots then click here to see the Equine Fusion Ultimate hoof boots as they come in smaller sizes suitable as mini hoof boots. The Ultimate hoof boots or shoes are also a good choice of hoof boots for hind feet as they are available in Slim sizes that better fit narrow hooves.

Measuring for hoof boots for horses
Please contact us if you need help with choosing the correct size or measuring your horse’s foot - we are more than happy to help.
Please provide a photo of each hoof with a ruler in place - see example to left. Be sure to get the whole hoof in the shot keeping fingers away from the sole surface of the hoof.
The Dampening Pad is an equine hoof pad that is specifically designed for use with the equine fusion jogging boots.
The Felt Pads are great for situations where you need to wick moisture away from the hoof whilst adding extra cushioning. They are also helpful in stabilizing the boot when the fit is not quite perfect.
Velcro Cleaning Brush
Helps you to easily remove debris from your velcro fastenings to keep it in perfect condition and prolong the life of your boots. See how it works in the video below:
The Stud Kit can be installed on the fusion hoof boots to give additional traction on slippery surfaces such as slick grass or mud and snow/ice.
Below is a video showing how to install the Stud Kit:

Very good grip in the snow...the Ultra have the best grip we ever had with hoofshoes and because of the flexible sole the snow can't build up underneath.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
The video was wonderful, and I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into answering my questions. Once I got on YouTube, I found several more videos of the Fusion, and now yours is included there, too! VERY helpful!
I really look forward to my ride tomorrow. Though there never is a bad day riding, some are better knowing that my horse will be comfortable and I will have an EASY time putting on those boots!
I have a friend who will be VERY interested in these, too; she's been searching for a long time for a solution for her horse. I'm betting Fusions are the answer.
Thank you AGAIN!!
My horse absolutely loves them!
Just received my equine jogging shoes last night and all I can say is.... WOW! I absolutely LOVE them! When I put them on my horse and took her out in the ring to ride, she was at first a little skeptical that the hard ground wasnt going to hurt when I asked her to move out, but once she realized her Equine Jogging Shoes would protect her feet, she was back to being herself.
My trainer couldn't believe the difference the shoes made, and how well they were constructed!
I will highly recommend these to every horse person I know. What a great product! Normally we would be riding indoors this time of year but we have had an unusual season so far, in that we have had no snow but the ground is frozen. Once the ground froze I couldnt ride her outside any longer, then the Equine Jogging Shoes came and I am so happy I can ride my horse outside again!
Thank you so much for all your help and for such a great product!

I am so happy I gave this boot a try.
I got a chance to try my friends cavallos this weekend as I was also putting the jogging boots thorough their official test run. With the cavallos Venus simply refused to move much and kept picking her feet up and couldn't settle even at a stand still... plus with her medial to lateral imbalance the boot didn't fit very well even though it was the correct size.
With the jogging boots she acted like she had nothing on and they formed to her! This is a very sensitive and opinionated horse and she didn't bat an eye at the equine fusions. She was able to walk comfortably on the concrete, go on to arena surface and play on line in the deep snow with no issue. She also gave me lovely heel first landings and showed she was quite comfortable to perform in these boots.
I like that the boot flexes and has that natural concave shape to promote her hoof function.. THIS IS THE WHOLE POINT! and why she is in a hoof rehab in the first place to get back those natural mechanics. I do like the look of the boot and that it is forgiving on the fit compared to most very hard material boots. I'd say I wouldn't put a foot bigger than hers in this boot... a bit bigger and she wouldn't fit, but after looking and looking it really seemed she fit in them pretty perfect.
The boot closes up nice and had no rubbing or anything after 2 hours of some riding and ground work this weekend.
I play in fields, do arena demos or am in a paddock on varying arena surfaces and get onto some concrete getting place to place. I also do some jumping and loads of natural horsemanship and natural dressage so I think for our needs these boots fit the bill on the performance! Again the flexibility in the boot is really great for the high level maneuvers that she is capable of.
Thanks for your patience and offering this product and on the trial basis. I would not have been confident enough to purchase the boots outright due to their price tag, the trial was perfect!

I am very pleased with the jogging shoes: I put them on my foundered mare everyday for turnout as her sole is very flat. They are easy to take off and put on, no rubbing and lightweight. They wash up very nicely in the washing machine. They have helped my mare be so much more comfortable. I recommend to anyone in the market for a pair of boots for their horse. Both my farrier and vet think they are great. Thanks

I love my EFs
I have 2 pairs now one for each horse. I used them on my mare for 1 year of hoof rehab. The great thing about the boot is that it is so light-weight and breathable so I can leave it on 24/7. Because it is so flexible I can add all types of pads and that feature really does make a huge difference to me. The boots still fit perfectly, even if I add a 1 cm thick pad. So far the only small damage to the shoes my mare has done herself, by biting a small hole on the top. This could easily be fixed and did not affect the shoe. I am a big fan of the EFs and I recommend them to anyone...
