Best fit for Click Hock Shield

  • Make sure the leg is straight under and the hoof is flat on the ground.
  • You should be able to put two fingers between the horse’s leg and the band.
  • DO NOT pull the elastic strap too tight so as to restrict circulation or create pressure sores. It is better to go too loose than too tight.
  • With a little experimentation, you will find the perfect fit.
