A common question we get is: How do I find the proper horseshoes size?
A lot of times the horse owner is ordering the shoes so that the shoes are available and ready for application at time of their scheduled farrier appointment.
The HOOF-it Natural Flex composite plastic horseshoe is made from a high-tech composite material. Since this material cannot be heated and shaped, as a steel shoe, these shoes come in a wide web pattern so you are able to trim the excess shoe off to customize to your horse's hoof.
- When measuring, take into consideration when your horse was last trimmed or shod.
- If in doubt, go up a shoe size.
- Always measure to a bulb, not strait back. This will ensure that you have enough shoes to support the horse.
The video below shows you a simple way to measure your horse's hooves and find the proper size.
