I tend to never buy the first iteration of anything… I prefer them to work out the kinks and then I’ll purchase. But I might reconsider with this Soft Ride ice boot.
Have you tried them yet? If so, please let me know your thoughts.
You see, Mama Tess has hot feet whenever she is brewing an abscess. I’m thinking it would be nice for her if I had this boot. From the looks of it, there is an inner boot to stop ice chaffing. I wonder how difficult it is to get on and off? How do you fill it? Is it better to use chipped ice?
In any case, I wish I had one right now to try on MT.
For me, I love that it has an inner boot. I’m not sure how you fill it, but I do see that it has a drain tube to get rid of the melted ice before repacking.
And, knowing that the inner is just like her Soft Ride boot, I don’t have to worry about cushion or sizing the boot. I already know there is ample cushioning – and I know her size since she wears the Soft Ride boots daily.
I also like the durability factor and that she can move around with the boot on, without worrying about it coming off. So, she wouldn”t have to be tied which would allow me to feel comfortable enough to leave her in her stall to eat or whatever.
I like the waterproof zippers. It does come with extra lubricant to reseal those zippers. I wonder about that… and how often they might leak. To me, I’d think they would make it out of scuba materials – but I also know a horse is much harder on things than a scuba diver…
ANYBODY OWN A SOFT RIDE SPA THERAPY BOOT? Or has anyone done a comparison?
If so, please give us the deets!
