Back on Track® Hock Boots Heel Open
The Hock Boot may be used in the treatment of various different problems associated with inflammation in the hock joints.
The Hock Boot may be used for injury prevention in order to minimise inflammation of the joints. It has three velcro straps and is available for both left and right legs. The hock boot with an opening for the heel has a firmer fit than the closed boot.
The interior is 50% cotton and 50% polyester fabric infused with ceramic particles, whist the exterior shell is made of neoprene.
In order to minimise the risk of the boot sliding down, we recommend that you make a resting bandage below the hock brace. The bandage stops the protective boot from sliding down which means that the boot’s velcro strap does not need to be pulled so hard. This minimises any risk for stasis when the horse is lying down and bends the hock.
Manufactured using the unique Welltex™ ceramic infused cotton/polyester fabric in a neoprene shell and secured with 3 Velcro straps. Available in 2 styles (1 which covers the whole area & 1 with an opening for the hock) for either left & right legs
It is recommended only to use this product during rest periods, stabling, turnout or light hacking, not during strenuous physical exercise and, preferably, the horse should be in an upright position & not allowed to roll or lie down while wearing the Hock Boots
Sizing guidelines: Measure the circumference of the horse’s leg, roughly 5” (125cm) above and below the centre of the joint, but the Velcro straps do offer some +/- adjustability.
