The Therapeutic Horse Hock Boots with Holes are a great choice for dealing with arthritic or capped hocks. The outer neoprene shell creates a breathable boot and our state-of-the-art Welltex material helps reflect your horse's own body warmth, creating a soothing far infrared effect. This boot can be used to help with injury prevention or recovery in muscles, joints, and tendons. The Therapeutic Horse Hock Boots with holes fasten around the hock but leave point of the hock uncovered. Straps allow you to adjust the boot's fit and keeping the straps loose while using them with standing wraps can prevent rubbing and keep them from sliding down. Do not use these horse hock boots for turnout.
