FlexPad EVA firm WIDE are ideal if you need the boot to fit tighter, the horse needs more protection and cushioning, or the sole or frog needs more stimulation to become stronger. Pads are useful if your horse needs extra protection on hard rocky ground, or you’re rehabilitating after laminitis, founder, abscess, white line disease, or thin sole.
The EVA pads are sold as a pair, are 5.5mm thick and have two firmness options: soft (yellow) and firm (red).
FlexPad EVA Firm WIDE (red) is ideal for:
- Heavier, larger horses.
- Long rides and more strenuous use.
The pad will mold into the sole and the inside of the Flex Boot. They stay on very well and help stimulate the sole, frog and back of the foot, therefore strengthening the hoof every step of the way. Flex pads also make the boots more durable and often the boot will stay on even better with pads.
Pads are not included in the standard Flex Boot set when you purchase a boot.
The soft and firm Flex pads are made of EVA foam, which is strong enough to provide protection yet soft enough to provide cushioning for the horse’s feet.
We recommend rinsing the pads after every use in warm water and drying them in a warm place; this helps retain their cushioning properties.
Flex Boots are designed, tested and manufactured in Finland.
