How to Estimate Your Horse's Boot Size
Most boots come in small, medium and large sizes; a few manufacturers offer boots to fit ponies and extra-large horses. Generally, the height, weight and breed of your horse and leg circumference will provide an estimation of the appropriate boot size to try on your horse if a size chart is not available from a particular boot manufacturer.

If you have a small horse with refined bones, perhaps a large pony or Arabian that weighs less than 1,000 pounds, you'll probably need small-sized horse boots. Many horses require a smaller size boot on their front limbs and one size larger boot on their hind limbs.

Most Thoroughbreds of average bone and an average height of about 16 hands will require large boots, while Warmbloods and sport type horses may need large or even extra large boots. Horses that fall into the middle categories of medium-sized boots will be Quarter Horse and Morgan types standing anywhere from 15.1 to 15.3 hands, along with fine-boned and smaller Thoroughbreds.

How to Check the Fit of Horse Boots
With straps fastened snugly but not over-tightened, you should be able to slide one finger between the protective boot and the horse's leg. Your finger should feel snug between the two surfaces. If the boot is too big or too loose, dirt can get inside and cause abrasions. Or, the boot can slide down and disrupt your horse's movements. If the boot is too tight, it can damage your horse's tendons.

The length of a boot on your horse's front leg should not be so long that it rises to the back of your horse's knee and interferes with normal joint movement. On both front and hind legs, the boot should be long enough to cover most of the cannon bone area and the inside of the fetlock.
