Fitting Instructions

Equessential Shin/Fetlock Boots are sized in, small, medium, large and extra large and are designed to fit both front and hind legs.

Please read the section below for detailed information on selecting the correct size Equessential Boots for your horse.

It is important to choose the correct size for your horse to get the optimum benefits from your Boots.

When sizing, the height of the horse and the heaviness of the bone should be taken into account, but these should not be the only determining factors when choosing an appropriately sized boot for your horse.

To choose the correct size, view the table below. If you are still unsure which size to get, you can measure the circumference of your horse’s legs for a more specific idea of size (see 2nd table), then choose the boot size that is the closest size to your measurements.

The circumference measurement of the boot is more critical than the height as the boot should be fitted to overlap 2 to 4cms to be effective.

In the chart below there are circumference and height measurements.
