|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 email@example.com 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
For my pony, Who has one tricky foot, this was the answer for keeping the scoot Boot secure
I’m interested in your thoughts about using the mud strap WITH trail gaiters?
My horse is very athletic and agile off his hinds. He galloped out of his back boots on a trail ride and then I got trail gaiters . I have trouble keeping the Velcro done up so I’m going to try mud straps as well as the trail gaiters on the back.
My horse wears a size 3 boot, and it fits perfectly. The first mud straps I ordered of the recommended size for that boot were too small. I ordered the next size up (M), and they will work, but are very tight. I probably need to go up at least one more size. I love the boots, and would highly recommend them. I think the sizing on the mud straps might need to be worked on a little more.
I haven’t been able to use them. I tried 3 sizes of boots from Schneider’s and they didn’t work out. The 5 fit one hoof, but Schneider wouldn’t exchange the other 5 for a 4. Said they couldn’t break the set. I love the boots and would like to get a pair, but had trouble getting them fitted properly. So the mud strap has not been used!!
Great product, great service
