What is the purpose of the Mud Strap
The Scoot Mud Strap is the ultimate riding accessory for those who like it extreme. The perfect accompaniment to your Scoot Boots, the mud strap provides unparalleled security in deep mud and when riding over rough terrain. It can also help prevent losing a boot in the instance a horse overreaches. Made from extremely robust thermoplastic urethane (TPU), the Scoot Mud Strap is designed to stretch when placed under load and, if secured correctly, won’t affect the horse’s pasterns.
What is included in the Mud Strap
– 2 Mud Straps
– 2 Mud Strap Collars
– 4 Mud Strap Sleeves (to be used to improve the fit or if your horse has sensitive skin/rubbing issues)

|Mud Strap Size Chart|
Note – as there are so many variables to the size of a horses upper hoof, you may find the Mud Straps are a size too small. If this is the situation, you can easily extend the length 10mm (3/8″) which will be the length of the next size up. Do this by heat stretching.
When you have the perfect fit – you will achieve maximum retention
If too big – if the Mud Strap can be pulled down to comfortably reach the coronet band, then your Mud Strap is a size too big and will pull off the hoof with minimum pressure
If too small – if you cannot slip a finger comfortably around the periphery of the Mud Strap, then the Mud Strap is a size too small and will likely cause rubbing
