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. New straps are available.
