Many of you will use a set of brushing boots to protect your horse's lower legs each time you ride.
However, these boots will only do the job you’ve bought them for if they fit well.
Correctly fitting brushing boots will help to protect key vulnerable areas on your horse’s lower legs.
If they’re too big they can slip down and could cause your horse to trip. Dirt and grit could also get inside the boots resulting in rubs and discomfort.
Equally, if the boots you use are too small, they won’t protect the areas of your horse’s legs.
To check your horse’s boots fit him follow our simple step-by-step video guide.
