ProShell Brushing Boots
A new generation of brushing boot from LeMieux with greater all-round protection. Moulded PU outer shell offers superior support and shields against strikes, whilst remaining very flexible. These boots are strong enough to deflect an impact but not restrictive and rigid in any way. Unlike a regular brushing boot which relies on a single inside padded area, the ProShell boot offers 360 degree protection. Strategically placed vents ensure the release of excess heat and the soft perforated inner lining encourages the movement of air and is soft and kind to the horse’s leg. These boots are extremely versatile, tough enough to be used for turn out but smart enough to use at shows.
ProShell brushing boots could not be easier to use and care for. They have minimal up-take of water making them ideal all year round boots. Convenient to machine wash and quick to dry

Need help on Sizing?
Note: Please bear in mind that every horse is different and this table is a guide only. We have many different styles to suit all shapes and sizes. New Zealand & Euro sizes are measured from the top of the horse. (Withers to tail. C-D) UK, USA & Australian sizes are measured at the bottom of the horse. (From the centre of the chest to the rear. A-B)
How to Choose The Right Fit
The fit of your rug is very important to ensure the optimal comfort and ease of movement for your horse. Since horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take careful measurements of your horse to choose the right size rug.
Using a soft tape measuring tape, measure from (A) t the centre point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) the rear of the hind legs where you would like the rug to finish.
How do I know that I have the right fit
A well fitting rug will not move or rub your horse.
- Place the rug forward and in front of the wither. The chest buckle should be fastened on the first or second hole, leaving a small gap. Further back than this the horse may need a larger size.
- The neck line should sit well up on the neck clear of the shoulder with the shoulder gussets correctly positioned on the point of the shoulder.
- The rug should finish at the top of the tail for most horses (the tail flap will then cover the rest)
- Leg straps are looped through each other loose enough to prevent chaffing but not loose enough to hang any where near the horses hocks.
- Leg strap clips should face inwards to the horse to reduce the chance of catching on fences or other hazards.
