When you buy Flex Hoof Boots, you get protective neoprene gaiter with it. The gaiter is nice soft neoprene that protects the horses foot from possible rubbing.
FlexGaiter comes with 8 different colors:
- royal blue
- neon green
- neon yellow
It is advisable to was the gaiters regularly either by hand with a mild soap or in a washing machine. Neoprene dries out quick at room temperature.
When replacing neoprene gaiters, you may want to remove the back strap for easier replacement.
When installing back strap, note that the strap is not totally straight, arch of the strap should face up. This will offers a best fit for your horse.
If a horse has very thick legs and the gaiter that comes with the boot does not cover all around the leg, use bigger gaiter (see the picture)
