Soft Ride

Soft-Ride orthotics assist the natural blood circulation in horses’ hooves by supporting their subtle weight shifts as they stand in trailers or on concrete or asphalt stall floors.  When a horse is in pain, immediate comfort is always the first priority. Soft-Ride Equine Comfort Boots relieve suffering from a wide variety of hoof conditions and disorders.

  • Raised Gel for Proper Sole Support – Elevated heel to provide relief of static tensionon the deep flexor tendon during weight-bearing, which allows for easier lateral movement.
  • Urethane Sole – Provides aggressive traction in all environments.
  • Durability – U.S. Military Spec: Ballistic cloth
  • Easy On and Off – “The Soft-Ride boots stay on, yet, are easy to put on the horse’s foot. They make the horse more comfortable and do not rub the horses heels.”-Scott Morrison, DVM Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital

Why Use Soft Ride

Transporting

why-use-pic1

Soft-Ride gel orthotics absorb the shock and vibrations of long trailer trips. A less-stressful trip means the horse can perform better right out of the trailer.

  • Reflected heat from hot asphalt reaches horses’ hooves easily.
  • Soft-Ride boots provide soothing insulation to make the trip more bearable.
  • They also work as ‘hauling slippers’ with leg wraps or shipping boots.
  • And, their non-slip soles provide traction on loading ramps.

 

Stabling

The deep gel in our orthotics assists the natural blood circulation in horses’ hooves as they shift their weight.

  • Modern show-ground facilities are being converted to asphalt and concrete stall flooring.
  • Easy to clean, but tough on horses’ hooves.
  • Soft-Ride boots ease the discomfort of these hard concrete floors without the need for expensive floor mats.

 

Treat and Prevent Injuries

When a horse is in pain, immediate comfort is always the first priority. Soft-Ride Equine Comfort Boots relieve suffering from a wide variety of hoof conditions and disorders.

  • Protect, support and stabilize the foot in chronic laminitis or hoof injury.
  • Provide easy-to-remove bandage and dressing coverage for pre- and post-surgical care.
  • Cushion sore hooves recovering from chronic lameness.
  • With a disposable liner, they make great soaking boots to treat hoof abcesses, puncture wounds, white line disease and thrush.
  • Comfort stinging soles after a hard workout.
  • Create temporary support for horses with possible tendon or ligament strain.
  • Protect a hoof when a horse is unshod, or has thrown a shoe.

 

Which Orthotic?

Soft-Ride offers a variety of interchangable orthotic inserts.

Soft-Ride’s inserts are available in four specialty densities, plus a new dual-density insert. This allows you to fine-tune the boot for specific therapeutic needs.
