Frequently Asked Questions

Materials:

To date, we are not aware of any boots with the same value of materials. All Equi-Fit materials and products are hand-crafted in the USA at Their manufacturing facility in Dedham, MA* allowing for quality assurance throughout the production process.

* with the exception of the Luxe™ line, manufactured in France

The Unique T-Boot Shape:

Most boots today are injection (or machine) molded with neoprene liners. By contrast, each T-Boot is hand-molded and lined with the highest quality T-Foam. Since the T-Foam insert actually does the contouring, T-Boots do not need the extreme contour of molded parts on other boots.

Fitting T-Boots:

T-Boots fit differently than standard neoprene horse boots. Reacting to body heat and pressure, T-Foam™ flows and molds to fit the exact anatomy of any horse’s legs, creating a custom fit boot, every time it’s worn. Contrary to traditional boots that are worn loosely, T-Boots must have a snug fit. This may make it seem like the boots are “too small,” but that is not the case. If you own a pair of T-Boots that are slipping or there is a space between the liner and the horse’s ankle, don’t hesitate to tighten them up to maintain proper fit and ensure that they are working properly.

T-Boot Fitting Tips

Overall Fit

    • Unlike standard neoprene boots, T-Boots are designed to fit snugly. 

    • Reacting to body heat and pressure, T-Foam softens and molds to fit the exact anatomy of any horse’s legs, creating a custom fit boot, every time it’s worn.

Elastic Straps & Closure Adjustability

    • For optimum elastic stretch when applying T-Boots, pull the elastic strap out and away from the leg before crossing it over the cannon bone.

Temperature and Boot Fit

    • T-Foam is temperature-sensitive and in cold conditions T-Foam liners may lose pliability.

    • If this occurs, warm liners indoors or by using body heat before applying to the leg.

    • As the T-Foam warms, it will soften - after a few minutes, check the T-Boots and re-adjust fit as needed.
