Tubbease was developed in New Zealand by Cambridge farrier Erin Hampson-Tindale. Erin was trying to solve the problem of poulticing hooves without 'stewing' them, as happened with most regular 'sealed' boots he used. So Erin created this rubber-dipped sock which 'breathes' whilst still protecting and soaking the damaged hoof. This 'breathability' prevents the hoof going soft during the treatment period. A thick EVA sole pad relieves pain for the horse and extends the life of the Tubbease. Various remedies can be used under the sock for ailments such as abscess, thrush, seedy toe, thin sole, injuries, cracks and general deterioration. Dimension is maximum width of hoof that will fit in the Tubbease cup. Tubbease is a Registered Design, No NZ 417646. NB: Tubbease should always be secured with the Velcro strap supplied. A bandage is not suitable or adequate.
Tubbease is the ultimate aid for your equine veterinary kit. Equip your stable today to combat hoof problems before they get the better of you and your horse.

"I have used a number of the Tubbease now on everything from foot abscesses and bruising to laminitis and hoof wall injuries. They are easily applied and reduce the cost of bandaging while maintaining a clean hoof. The boots come in a nice variety of sizes and can be used either to keep the foot dry or clean-soaking in whatever salts or solutions are needed for treatment.
Clients have responded well to them and they are very reasonably priced. I’ll continue to use them well into the future."

"I was delighted to see they have come up with a great way to solve the age-old problem of tubbing a horse’s hoof. This job can be one of the most frustrating of all jobs for a horse owner. The Tubbease hoof sock is easy to apply and stays in place either with or without traditional dressings underneath. It’s simple and easy to use and not only saves time and frustration but is economical as well."
