Exclamation Help! Woof Double Lock Brushing Boots

Lately I've been working Frida in a pair of Davis Splint Boots. She's been wearing them on her front legs only. I just got a pair of Woof Wear Double Lock Brushing Boots. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to put them on properly, I'm only used to one piece of velcro that I wrap to the back. In the video below, those are the same pair I have, except I have three straps of velcro, not two. (What's the difference?) In the video, she wraps the velcro to the back and then the second coordinating strap (with the logo) to the front. This would mean it would appear that the boot is on incorrectly at the end, with straps facing forward. Is this right? I'm plenty nervous about making sure I fit them correctly. She's also never worn hind boots before. Is the concept still the same? Not to high or low to affect any of the joints?

The concept applies to both front and hind. As well, the boots may look incorrect because of the way they Velcro on these particular boots. The Velcro looks to be much like the Velcro on my mare's fly mask. It ensures that there is no way it can come undone accidently.

I'm confused.

I have a full set of the Woof Splint Boots, with 2 straps. Mine are slightly different from the one's in the video, we both have two straps, but I do not have the metal rings to slide the velcro strap through which then creates the end of the strap foliding over like you see in this video.

Mine just secure to the velcro and voila, I am done.

See how the velcro just wraps around and sticks to the velcro? No looping back on these one's unlike the one's you see in the video.

The video is correct :)

When you put on normal boots you pull the straps across the cannon bone, not the tendons. Since the woofs are double-locking, you pull the first strap across the cannon bone, then just fold the "locking" strap over - you don't really pull that one.

If you put them on so the outside strap was facing the back, then the first strap would be pulled across the tendons, which is no good.

MIEventer - these boots don't have metal rings. Just 2 velcro flaps. Like this:

The straps on the left get put on first, towards the back. Then the "locking" straps on the right go on and point towards the front. :)
So, this boot would be for a right leg.

Oh, alright, makes perfect sense now. Thanks. But what's the difference between boots with two straps and boots with three straps?
    03-11-2010, 08:26 PM
Different sizes. The 2 straps are probably small or medium and the 3 straps are large or x-large.

That's how my woofs are - 2 strap mediums and 3 strap larges.

I have a pair of larges that are two strap & I think my xtralarges are two strap too but I could be wrong.....

Yeah, I was going to say the same thing -

I have large and xtra large. The large go on Nelson's front and the xtra larges go on Nelson's back legs and they are boots with 2 straps.

I was just at a tack store today where they sell 3 strapped boots, and they only had a pair of Mediums in the color I wanted.

So the # of straps determining the size of the boots - is incorrect.


These boots are geared more towards Eventers, least that is what the tack store lady told me. The more straps, the more secure the boot is to the leg.

So I wanted a pair in white, but they only had mediums, and I need larges and xtra larges.

The more straps, the more secure the boot is.

I have yet to see a pair of Woof Boots with the metal rings where you put the velcro strap through and loop it back.

I think if they are single strap they add a strap for the bigger ones though, but not the double lock unless they are enormous !

Ok - I have the Dover Catalogue opened up on my lap.

They have the set I have - the basic Woof ALl Purpose Boots *the one's with the 2 straps in the fun colors* they come in S, M, L, XL.

Then they have the Woof Double-Lock Brushing Boots, these come in only white or black. They have the sizes M (2 straps) (L, XL) 3 straps.

Then they have Woof Single-Lock Brushing Boots in lots of fun colors in sizes S (3 straps), M (4 Straps), L (5 straps)

So yep, My Beau was right, the more straps, the large the boot is - depending on the make/model of the boot.

Mine are these one's:

In the sizes I already stated - but that's because of the type of boot they are. Doesn't matter what size you go, the 2 straps remain - but if you go to the other two models/styles....the straps vary on the size.
