|Mud Strap Size Chart|
Note - as there are so many variables to the size of a horses upper hoof, you may find the Mud Straps are a size too small. If this is the situation, you can easily extend the length 10mm (3/8") which will be the length of the next size up. Do this by heat stretching.
If you have any queries about fit, please send us photos of the strap on the Scoot Boot to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
When you have the perfect fit - you will achieve maximum retention
If too big - if the Mud Strap can be pulled down to comfortably reach the coronet band, then your Mud Strap is a size too big and will pull off the hoof with minimum pressure
If too small - if you cannot slip a finger comfortably around the periphery of the Mud Strap, then the Mud Strap is a size too small and will likely cause rubbing
Saved my boy from a life of discomfort with shoes that never stayed on his feet as he is walls are so thin. He’s whole demeanour has changed and reactive behaviour under saddle has gone! Thanks to Scoot Boots!
I love the normal close straps (red one) because they are easy to close - but we always loose the shoes closed with it. So we tried the mud straps; perfect! (I still use the normal one for the optic) - The shoes don't fly away with it. Just the Sleeve (little black thing on the front) is too small to put the straps through it; it takes much time. If this would be a few mm wider it could be 5 stars.
Even though I have been very happy using the normal pattern straps on my scoot boots and have never had a boot come off, a month or so a go while riding with the trail riding group over some quite extreme tracks we encountered some very boggy black soil that all the horses found quite heavy going and surprisingly the pastern straps held the scoots on but the suction of the mud did turn them off centre but they didn't come off ! . This prompted me to get mud straps as an extra precaution for next time .Well because of the extreme weather we v been having i came across a very similar situation again this time with the mud straps on and I can happily say the boots stayed exactly in place even though the black soil/ mud was like glue .I am very happy that if I'm going out on an unknown trail I can just routinely use the mud straps just in case and be confident my horse's feet will be protected. I highly recommend having mud straps as part of your horses boot kit , they are straight forward to use and well made , a big thank you to Scoots
For my pony, Who has one tricky foot, this was the answer for keeping the scoot Boot secure
Great product, great service
