The original Swiss Horse Boot was invented in 1979 by Hubert Rohner and over the years it has been updated and improved.
They are designed to be very close fitting boots and are heated prior to the first application so that they mold to the individual hoof. Subsequent applications often require the use of a rubber mallet to seat the boot on the hoof.
STUDS: made of long-lasting Cobalt the studs are recommended for additional traction on slippery surfaces such as mud, ice and snow. Minimum of 2 studs per boot, but 4 per boot are recommended. On work horses, such as drafts, 6 studs are recommended.
INSERTS: the inserts will improve the fit of the boots if they are slightly too big for the hoof.
