Boa Boots for Horses

posted 6 years ago

We have a Thoroughbred that has tender feet every time he is trimmed. Because he was deemed unrideable, this was not much of a worry. He's on soft ground and only contends with hard surfaces when he comes into his stall to eat. Recently, our vet stated that he thought he would be rideable as long as we kept him on fairly level ground and didn't overwork him. His first ride off the property was uncomfortable on his feet so we opted to purchase boots. We've tried other variations in the past, but the Boa Boots have been the easiest to put on and take off. We liked them so much that we purchased a second pair for another one of our horses. Other than being a little pricey, we have no other complaints. It's certainly cheaper than shoeing and much better than driving nails into their hooves.

Pros: Easy on and easy off

Cons: Price

Not my choice

posted 5 years ago

I found they helped our horse somewhat, however they didnt fit as good as I had hoped. They were fitted by the farrier, and it rubbed the hair off above her hoof, it also got very stinky inside of the boots from the water getting in and the hoof not getting air. Our horse needed them in winter too and the snow would get in them and I found it very difficult to get the plastic cap back on ... my fingers were froze. I finally gave up and said it wasnt worth the hassle taking them off and on daily and trying to get the cap on and off.

Pros: Helps horse

Cons: doesnt work like I had hoped

Not as good as shoes but...

posted 5 years ago

Situation that I think these would be good for, we live in Florida where the ground is sand, so the horse could go barefoot...but the horse was going on a trail ride in NC mountains, and was tenderfooted so we put these on the horse and they worked well for a temporary fix, I would not advise for permanent though, call the farrier and put on shoes.

Pros: some

Cons: some

If the Boot Fits.....

posted 5 years ago

My friend has always used Boa Boots and loves them. I actually have another brand, but pretty much the same thing. They are expensive, but work well. I carry them with me in case my horse throws a shoe when on a long ride.

Pros: easy to put on

Cons: none

Saved our mare!

posted 5 years ago

We used these boots on our mare who foundered for over a year while her feet were being treated. They saved her feet, and she is now completely sound. These boots were a lifesaver!

Pros: easy to put on and off, easy to secure and stay secure

Cons: n/a

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
