    Bell Boot Questions

    My horse has a huge chunk misssing from his hoof. If I put a bell boot on will it cause less pain on trails

    A bell boot, or an over reach boot, is used to PREVENT horses from catching the back of their front ankles. They are not support boots.

    So to answer your question, no, it will not prevent pain on the trails.


    Where is the chunk out of your horses hoof?

    I agree Velvet, and never heard of a horse losing a chunk of hoof from over reaching.... Catching and losing a shoe yes, but not that.

    Pics would be very helpful.

    What do you mean by "chunk missing"? Like chipped off? If so bell boot won't help much. If you are concerned about the bottom of the hoof you may want to look into riding boots (like Easyboot).
