Although Flex Boots are suitable for many hoof models, in some cases there is a need to slightly modify the boots. This is possible with Flex Boots.
We offer custom-made boots for horses for which the basic model is not suitable. Such cases are for example horses with the very large heel buttress, (need for a larger TPU-gaiter), or very thin legs (need for a smaller TPU-gaiters).
Please note - custom boots are not eligible for return or exchange. Lead time is 2 - 3 weeks from date of order.
The size of the neoprene gaiter is determined by the size of the TPU gaiter.
TPU gaiter 120 and 130 / neoprene gaiter size S or M
TPU gaiter 140 / neoprene gaiter size M or L
The size shown in the product name indicates the size of the shell. For example, the product shown in the alternative 130/120 means that the shell is size 130, and the TPU gaiter is size 120, the neoprene gaiter could be size S or M.
Please consider your horse's bone structure when you order your gaiters. Measuring the circumference of the pastern is an easy way to double check.
As a general rule:
S gaiters are 9-1/2" long. They work with 130mm boots (very fine bone structures)
M gaiters are 11" long. They work with 130mm boots (standard boned horses) and 140 mm boots (finer bone structures)
L gaiters are 12-1/2" long. They work with 140 mm boots unless the horse is more fine boned.
Please note custom boots are special ordered from Finland so it will take one - two weeks for delivery.
