The Old Mac's G2 is a sleeker, more fine tuned version of the popular Old Mac’s original hoof boot. Still retaining many of the innovative features of the original boot but with some important improvements, the G2 has already become one of the most popular hoof boots in the UK. The Old Mac’s G2 feature the TPU patented hi-tech performance outsole incorporating the unique hoof suspension system, but with a redesigned sole to provide aggressive, yet slightly more sympathetic traction. The boot has been rounded to allow a more natural breakover, and there is a reinforced front plate on the boot for added protection and wear resistance. One of the most important features is the shape of the boot which allows the G2 to fit a far wider range of hoof shapes successfully. This boot is ideally suited to a hoof that is slightly longer than wide, but also works well on a variety of hoof shapes. The G2 is often the only solution (when used with inserts) to cater for horses with excessively long hooves (often the result of illness or injury), as well as the rounder shape of some horses front feet.
Old Mac's can also be used during transport over metal shoes* to help protect the horse from bulb and tendon damage as well as hoof wall and sole bruising. The exceptional traction helps improve the horses confidence when loading.
Old Mac's G2's are supplied with a pair of neoprene gaiters, ideal for use on thin skinned horses prone to being rubbed, or with thin pasterns. The optional gaiters are also very useful when first using new boots, or on a longer than usual ride (the same way you would wear socks with new shoes to prevent rubs).
* Please note that the use of any hoof boot over metal shoes will invalidate the warranty.
