Editor's Notes

October 22, 2019:

Horse boots are used for a variety of different reasons, so we included the best options for some of the most common.

If you've made the choice to let your horse go barefoot (without metal shoes), then they'll most likely need protection when they go out for a ride. The Cavallo Simple has a flexible, protective sole, plus the top of the boot covers just like a bell boot, so it performs double duty if you have a horse with a tendency to overreach.

The Easy Boot Glove is preferred by some riders for its more open feel and the molded neoprene that will feel natural for the horse. At the same time, the more rugged tread performs better on more challenging terrain.

We included a selection of therapeutic boots the Tough 1 Hoof Saver that can provide continuous access to medication while not being as limiting as a wrap. It's easy to soak your horse's foot with this boot on as well.

Special Honors

Renegade Viper The Viper is the next generation of the brand's Classic boot. It sports a robust tread while being 15% lighter. Their offered in eye-catching colors. Renegade is known for being on the leading edge of horse boot technology, the high cost and precise fit means you'll have to be on a fairly short trim cycle so they don't need to be replaced.

Scoot Boots Scoot Boots are constructed from a very strong plastic urethane that makes them incredibly lightweight while rugged enough for all types of terrain. Their excellent in wet conditions as they won't get soggy, there are large drainage and ventilation holes, plus there's no dealing with Velcro that often loses traction when caked with mud.
