What Are Over Reach Boots?
Over Reach Boots are used to protect the sensitive heels of a horse's front hooves. Young horses that are not too steady with their balance, or horses with long strides can easily kick their hind legs against their front hooves, leading to injury and expensive farrier and vet visits. A shod horse can cause itself even more damage or even kick off front shoes. Over Reach Boots, when correctly fitted, can help to prevent damage and the loss of shoes.
What Are Over Reach Boots Made Of?
Over Reach Boots can be made of leather, nylon, neoprene, synthetic leather or rubber. Upper edges can be lined with sheepskin or synthetic fur to prevent discomfort and chafing.
How Are Over Reach Boots Attached?
It is very important that Over Reach Boots are fitted correctly. Too tight and they will cause chafing, too loose and they will affect the horse's movement. The most popular fitting method is a velcro fastener which can be adjusted easily.
