Our Hock Boots with Holes give you another choice for dealing with arthritic or capped hocks. Consisting of a neoprene exterior, we infused the interior of the boot with our state-of-the-art Welltex fabric containing ceramic powder which reflects your horse’s natural body warmth and creates a soothing far infrared thermal warmth. This is a well-recognized method used to help relieve and heal injured muscles, joints, and tendons. The boot fastens around the hock but leaves the hock point uncovered. Attached Velcro™ straps allow you to adjust the boots’ fit. When you use these boots it helps to use standing wraps to prevent them from sliding down.
Our Hock Boots with Holes are ideal to use for injury prevention or recovery. Do not use our Hock Boots without Holes for turnout.
