Whinny Warmers® and Summer Whinnys® are designed to fit horses. We've included .pdf files for your review so that you can see the best way to put on and take off both designs.
I have put socks on many top equine competitors in a number of disciplines of equine competition. The only requirement is that the horse has respect for the people working with their feet. If you aren't trained to safely handle your horse's feet, or if your horse isn't trained to stand still and be respectful of you around its feet, our socks are not for you. We recommend you contact a reliable trainer in your area and for your sake and the sake of your horse, teach your horse to allow its legs to be safely handled and respectfully stand still while you are doing so. It is one of the best investments in your horse's well being and your well being that you will make.
Put one sock on your horse first just to see how it reacts to wearing socks. Leave that single sock on the horse for an hour or so and if the horse is fine with it, add the second sock. Not one of our horses reacted to wearing socks and we've heard from many customers that their horses didn't have any problems with them either, but that doesn’t mean that your horse will immediately like them particularly if your horse has never worn boots or wraps on its legs before.
