    Description

    An innovative breathable boot which seals the leg from the knee to the base of the heel to prevent mud getting onto your horse’s legs, enabling freedom of turnout whatever the conditions.

    Featuring a waterproof and breathable fabric around the cannon bone to prevent overheating and a close fitting hoof capsule with Kevlar reinforced heel protection, these innovative boots will keep legs clean and dry. A shaped PU strike pad also offers brushing protection for your horse’s legs. 

    The Mud Fever Turnout boot is designed as a preventative aid, but, with veterinary guidance, this boot can be used with horses who have developed mild mud fever to help stop it from getting any worse. 

    Providing you carry out daily checks, the boots can be worn indefinitely. The boots should be removed daily, and legs inspected. Make sure all the hook and loop fastenings are clean and free of debris, and if all is well, pop them back on again. If the fastenings are not clean, they will be unable to stick and therefore won’t keep the boot secure.

    Some useful tips to remember when dealing with mud fever:

    • Never scratch the scabs, this can lead to further infection  
    • Use a mild anti-bacterial shampoo for cleansing and then ensure the leg is as dry as possible before applying any appropriate creams for healing over night
    • Clean your grooming brushes regularly as they can harbour bacteria if not kept clean
    • Don’t use dirty horse boots it can cause unnecessary and totally avoidable rubs 
    • Don’t share horse boots, this is to help prevent the spread of any bacteria or other nasties
    • Wash your own hands after cleaning any mud fever infected area, we recommend using gloves where possible

    Technology

    Submarine Hoof Capsule

    Most turnout boots end above the bulbs of the heel allowing mud to easily seep up the leg. The Submarine hoof capsule is articulated and ‘dives deep’ underneath the bulbs of the heel to prevent the boot riding upwards preventing mud ingress.

    Breathable Fabric
     
    The loose fitting waterproof and breathable fabric allows air to circulate around the leg creating a micro-climate which prevents the warm, damp conditions mud fever loves. 
     

    Fitting

    1. Open boot completely

    2. Put it around the leg and do up the top strap securely ensuring the vertical hook and loop section is located down the front of the leg

    3. Adjust the neoprene around the hoof to ensure the bulbs of the heel are covered. Pull tightly and overlap the hook and loop on the neoprene. When satisfied with the fit, smooth over the top securing straps. Then close the hook and loop strip down the front of the cannon bone

    4. Lastly, adjust the middle strap so that the material is gathered neatly but not tight against the leg. The purpose of this strap is to hold the excess material close to the leg, it is not a support strap for the boot.

    NOTE: It is important that the neoprene around the hoof overlaps fully so the hook and loop fixture is locked in place over a large surface area. If this is not the case we recommend going up a size.
