Pre­vent Hock Sores

Trail Rider - - SADDLEBAG SAVVY -

My horse, Q, loves to lie down at night, even when stay­ing some­where new where the ground may not be cush­ioned. As he gets up and lies down, he tends to rub the out­side of his hocks on the ground, which can cre­ate hock sores. To pro­tect Q’s legs no mat­ter where he lies down, I out­fit him with Hock Shields (www.hock­shield.com). These light­weight pads stay on well and keep him from chaf­ing his legs. I rec­om­mend them when stay­ing overnight in a new area where shav­ings might not be avail­able. TTR

Out­fit your horse with pro­tec­tive hock wear to help him stay com­fort­able and sore-free when you overnight at a new lo­cale.
