Ice Boot How to Use
“Hi, I’m Julie and I’m here with Simon and we’re at Sutters Run Farm, the base of Ariel an upper level event rider and we’re here to show you the Soft Ride Ice boots that we’ve had for about a year and absolutely love. They’re worth every penny.
So I’m just here to show you how easy they are and why we love them so much! So to start with, this is the boot, and this is the cuff that goes around the pastern and then Velcro’s into the boot, so I will show you how to do that.
So the cuff has three tabs, two angled that will go on either side toward the front, and then one straight tab that goes in the back towards the heel. Then theres the velcro that attaches, double sided in the front and it goes on just like so - with your two angled tabs up front and your flat tab behind.
So once the cuff is on the horse’s leg, and you are ready to put it in the boot, there are three velcro tabs - be sure they are velcro-ed back so they’re out of the way and they’re easily accessible when you go to actually attaching it to the cuff. Pull the back velcro, right by the heel so you can grab the boot. So you put the toe in first, let the heel rock back and press the velcro and then let the horse step down.
So the back velcro got attached when he stepped down, you want to now pull this down by the loop and velcro it to the front tab, and do the same on the other side. The more velcro, the more secure you can get the velcro, the better it will be if the horse decides to dance around or step out of it.
