Did you know?
More than a quarter of a million horses require bell boots for turnout. They last, on average, fewer than 100 days.
Bell boot failure points are generally:
1) the Stitching
2) the Velcro
3) the soft bell material.
We redesigned the equine bell boot to protect horses, the environment & pocketbooks.
GatorBootz has a unique fastener designed to open and close without the need for Velcro. Additionally, it latches at the hoof, not the ankle, meaning fewer rubs. Finally, the boot is made from a high tear strength polymer, it is designed to last.
Our research has revealed many horse owners achieve fewer than 2 months from regular bell boots. It is our opinion the industry at large has conditioned consumers to purchase cheaper and cheaper bell boots so they may be considered “disposable”. In an effort to care about the environment and your pocketbook we created GatorBootz.
When riders add up how much they spend annually on bell boots they can discover perhaps it is not best for either their pocketbook or the environment to be tossing so much material into the dumpster, no to mention, when the boot fails, the horses are without protection.
