Easyboot Glove Application

  1. Pick up the horse’s leg and support the cannon bone between your knees so that you can use two hands when applying the boot.
  2. Fold the gaiter back to get it out of the way.
  3. Using technique rather than strength, place the boot over the horse’s toe and, using a slight back and forth twisting motion, slide the boot on the rest of the way. You can also put the foot down on the ground and allow the horse to put weight into it. Don’t use the gaiter to pull the boot on.
  4. Check for proper fit. Make sure all portions of the boot (with the exception of the gaiter) are below the hairline. The boot should be very snug and not twist on the hoof. Do not use the boot if it is loose or if the main part of the boot touches the coronary band.
  5. Fasten the Easyboot Glove Gaiter.
    1. Pull the top of the gaiter tight around the pastern.
    2. Fasten the hook and loop straps.
  6. The tighter the fit, the better the boot will perform. Overlap the hook and loop straps as much as needed to insure a tight fit and avoid rubbing issues. (See illustration below) Easyboot Fitting
  7. This overlapping does not compromise the integrity of the gaiter. When properly tightened, it should be difficult to fit a finger between the pastern and the top of the gaiter.
  8. Due to their great deal of elasticity, gaiter straps cannot be over tightened.

 

Removing the Easyboot Glove.

  1. Unfasten the gaiter straps.
  2. Slip the boot off the hoof.
