How to: Easy Hot/Cold Soaking Hooves

Hi –

You know me….I’m Pamela of Giddyap Girls®.  I invented the Original Giddyap SoakingBoot®.  A smarter – and easier – way to soak your horse’s hooves for abscesses. Safer than a bucket….it won’t spill and make a messy work area. American Made of super heavy duty denier nylon….this is quality.

First:
Assemble your stuff….and make sure to use a hoof pick and clean out your horse’s hooves. Treats are always a good thing to have handy….to keep your horse “happy”.

Easy open and my Comfort Disk™ for stability and well-being.

My Giddyap Girls SoakingBoot® is an oversized ‘boot’ with a waterproof interior, and velcrow closures for easy on and easy off. Included is a Comfort Disk™ which aids in stability….and actually gives ‘comfort’ to your horse while soaking. The Comfort Disk™ is easily removable for wash up.

Pour in your Epsom Salts…

Fill the Boot with Water. This boot holds a great deal of water….to soak higher up on the leg….for better healing. Heat the water if doing a warm soak. Ice it for cold. Add your Epsom Salts and Drop in my Oxi-CleanTabs™ The Tablets work as a “Soaking Booster”….making the soak more effective. How…you ask ? Apple Cider Vinegar and Tea Tree Oil work as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agents….and the Fizz Action of the tablets gets these healing ingredients into the nooks & crannies of the hoof infected area. { see our video with Trainer Denny Ekins on how he uses Oxi-CleanTabs™ on his race horses }

Giddyap Girls® SoakingBoot® is easy to work with because of the double sided velcro….you can’t make a mistake !

Closure up the boot with my two sided, double wide velcro. Double sided to make it easy…so you can’t do it wrong. Double wide….to make it easy….so it can’t go wrong !!

Now… adjust the boot to the leg…and wrap the top velcro closure around the boot. It’s that easy !

Stay with your horse during Soaking. It’s not safe to leave your horse unattended. Use our Control Strap™ on the boot to keep the boot level with your horse’s hoof, as they may lift their leg to see what is wrapped around it.  Holding the strap…move the boot with the leg…allowing your horse to be more at ease.    Talk to your horse during the process, bond, give them some Giddyap Girls® Premium Horse Treats….there is No Sugar and No Wheat….so you can’t ‘over-treat’.

After you finish your soak. Let it dry out and if you are packing with any type of poultices…apply now. The Giddyap Girls SoakingBoot® can be turned inside out to clean and dry…and it folds flat for easy storage.

One Smart Boot !

Hoof Abscesses and Puncture Wounds

Hoof Abscesses and Puncture Wounds.  By Janice Posnikoff, DMV.

Informative piece on abscesses…..and note the ‘side-bar’ that  recommends  Giddyap Girls® Original SoakingBoot® to treat abscesses.

I designed the Giddyap Girls® Original SoakingBoot® for ‘easy on & easy off’.   I had a cast on my broken ankle ( another story )….and My horse Cheyenne got an abscess.  I struggled so hard to get that “other” brand boot on her…then off….   I think I used a few ‘choice’ words that day.    I said to myself….”there has to be a better way”.   I designed and tested a bunch of versions of the Boot…..and finally came upon what many feel is the best in the marketplace.    I guarantee it.    PamelaGiddyapGirlsSoakingBoot_aGiddyapGirlsSoakingBoot_b
