The Soaking Boot by Giddyap Girls, Inc.
Finally, a clean, safe, efficient, veterinarian-approved alternative to treating the #1 cause of lameness in horses.
You love your horse. He’s a friend like no other. You would do anything for him. When he sets
his soft brown eyes on you, nickering as you enter the barn, you know that the feeling is mutual. So when your horse develops a painful hoof abscess, you need to find the safest, most
comfortable way to treat it.
An abscess is a defined as ‘a localized collection of pus surrounded by inflamed tissue’, caused
by a bacterial infection. In the case of a hoof abscess, the bacteria usually enter through the bottom of the hoof and migrate underneath the hard protective lamina. Once inside the warm,
nutrient-rich environment, the bacteria grow, releasing toxins that eat away at healthy tissue, allowing room for more bacteria to grow. At the same time, the body is producing white blood
cells to fight the infection. This mixture of dead and dying tissue, decomposing body cells, and white blood cells causes pressure to sensitive tissues and forms the inflammation and pus known
as an abscess. Abscesses can form along the coronary band, heels and soles, or on the tip of the frog.
Signs of an abscess
are sudden lameness, pounding pulse at the fetlock, and an unusually warm hoof. Common causes of the infection that leads to an abscess are:
1)Foreign matter, such as gravel, entering the hoof through the sole wall and migrating to the lamina
2)Bruises (pockets of blood that develop when blood vessels are broken) due to an impact that could become infected at a later stage
3)A crack in the hoof wall
4)Penetration of the sole or frog by a sharp object
Now, Giddyap Girls, Inc. has developed the Soaking Boot, the latest in the Smart Soaking
System. No more mess and inconvenience of the soaking bucket. What makes the Giddyap Girl Soaking Boot the perfect healing solution for your horse and you?
It’s the answer to the mess and inconvenience of the soaking bucket. With a waterproof seal, you
won’t need to worry about leaks and spillage. The Velcro closure and front-entry design make it easy to put on and take off, and the boot collapses down for easy storage.
This sturdy American-made boot, made of durable Ballistic nylon, stands upright while your horse’s hoof soaks. A Comfort Disc at the bottom enhances stability
The ergonomic design moves with your horse, so he can eat blissfully from his feed bin while
soaking in comfort. There is ample opening for multiple-sized hooves.
How do I use it?
Simply prepare the hoof according to your veterinarian’s instructions, mix the soaking solution, fill
the Soaking Boot with the solution, insert the hoof, and soak! The boot can be used for a warm soak or a cold soak, adding crushed ice and cold water. A high water level ensures coverage up
to the coronary band, a common “explosion site” for an abcess.
“The Soaking Boot is the horseman’s answer to warm water or ice therapy soaking needs. The ease of use is perfect for those of us who must work alone when soaking and healing are

“The Soaking Boot is one of the best new products that has come out for the horse owner in the
past few years. I recently had the opportunity to treat my own horse that had a hoof abscess, and boy did the Soaking Boot make it a lot easier than before. No more standing there with my
horse’s foot in a bucket. I also got one for a friend whose horse had a hoof puncture and the foot
needed to be soaked twice a day. The Soaking Boot worked again making the job clean, simple, and easy. Every horse owner should have the Soaking Boot on hand”.
