Does your horse suffer from bed sores or pressure sores caused from lying on hard surfaces such has hard ground in the paddock or the stable.


If a horse has a hock injury or bed sore, repeated lying down can aggravate it and prevent healing. Some sores just become larger and/or deeper.


The healing process cannot take place unless a protective layer is placed between the ground and the skin.


The Hock Shield is a custom fit hock protector designed to STAY IN PLACE to prevent and heal hock sores.


The Hock Shield comes in two adjustable sizes for a perfect fit:

13” up to 15.9″= Regular Horse
16” up to 20″= XL/Draft


The Hock Shield Ultra available in four sizes:

13″ – 13.9″ = S
14″ – 14.9″ = M
15″ – 15.9″ = L
16″ – 16.9″ = XL


Fetlock Shield: 
= One size fits ALL


This light weight, non-restrictive boot is made of ultra-thin neoprene to provide that constant barrier your horse needs.

Please note: Most horses will only require the standard HockShield. HockShield Ultra is needed in cases where pressure sores also occur on the front of the legs.
