A Quick Guide To Horse Brushing Boots For The Winter Season

It’s that time of year again when horses start to get those winter coats and their boots need to be brushed too! In this quick guide, we’ll show you the basics of horse brushing boots and how to do it properly so that your horse’s coat stays healthy and shiny all winter long!

What are horse brushing boots?

These are specially designed shoes that are meant to be put on your horse’s feet before you brush them. They help to keep the horse’s coat clean and free from dirt, mud, and other debris. There are a few different types of Horse Riding Clothing  brush boots on the market. The most common are those with rubber soles that help to grip the ground as you brush. Others have bristles on the bottom that help to remove dirt and debris from the horse’s skin. Before you buy a pair of horse brushing boots, it is important to understand what they are meant for. Most boots should only be used on horses that have been groomed recently. If your horse has a thick coat, it may not be necessary to buy a pair of boots. Instead, you can use a brush or sponge to get the job done. If you are unsure whether or not your horse needs a pair of boots, it is best to consult with your veterinarian or groomer. 

How to put on a horse brushing boot

If you are like most horse owners, you probably have a few pairs of boots in your barn. One pair is for brushing and the other is for horseshoeing. The boots that you wear to brush your horse should be the same type of boot that you wear to shoe your horse. You will need to put them on in the same way that you would put on any other type of boot. Use your hands to unlace the boot. Gently pull the boot off your foot. Line up the toe of the boot with the front edge of the Horse Riding Clothing shoe, making sure to line up the heel of the boot with the back edge of the shoe.  Fasten the strap around your ankle by pulling it through one hole and pushing it through the opposite hole. The strap should be tight but not too tight. Put your foot back into the boot and lace it up tight. Make sure that there is enough room in front of the horseshoeing shoe so that when you place your foot on top of the shoe, it touches both sides evenly. 

Types of horse brushing boots

There are a few different types of horse brushing boots, and each has its own benefits. The American Hoofcare Association (AHA) recommends using a “wet and dry” brush boot for horses that live in colder climates. This type of boot is made of vinyl or rubber and fits over the hoof completely, with a waterproof outer layer. The wet and dry brush boot is best for horses that have mud, snow, or ice on their hooves. It also helps keep the horse’s hooves clean and healthy by removing built-up debris and bacteria. The AHA also recommends using a “wet” brush boot for horses that live in warm climates or during the summertime.
