The Old Mac's multipurpose horse boot is a versatile and highly durable hoof boot. The Original Old Mac's Multipurpose Horse Boots have a patented hi-tech performance outsole, incorporating the unique hoof suspension system. The specially developed Thermo Plastic Urethane (TPU) compound minimises concussion related injuries and helps to speed up recovery when used on horses with existing conditions.
Old Mac's are an ideal short distance riding boot (less than 25 miles per week), offering excellent traction on roads and tracks. The original version of the Old Mac's hoof boot is the only boot that caters for the wider than long hoof, often seen in Thoroughbred and Draught types in particular. Old Mac's are also ideal if the horse suffers from arthritis, pedal bone fractures, jarred shins, navicular, ringbone, knee fractures or laminitis (founder), bruised soles or hoof walls. Aimed at improving your horses soundness, well-being and performance, these boots can help extend the horses working life by offering protection and relief. A pair of pastern wraps are supplied with the boots, which can be useful when first using new boots, or when going on a longer than usual ride (the same way you would wear socks with new shoes to prevent rubs). If a horse has thin skin or less bone than average, they can also be used to take up the gap and help prevent rubbing.
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.
* Please note that the use of any hoof boot over metal shoes will invalidate the warranty.
