Application & Uses
The Medium Hoofjack® will accommodate a pony up to a small draft or draft cross (hooves up to a size 7). The Medium Hoofjack® consists of one medium base with two magnets, one medium cradle, and one straight post with standard rubber cap.
Note: If your horse is unshod and you are uncertain of it's shoe size, measure across the widest part of the hoof. If the hoof is less than 7 3/4" in width you will need to order the Standard or Medium Hoofjack®.
The Medium Hoofjack® base is three inches shorter than the Standard Hoofjack® base. While the Medium Hoofjack®can be used in place of the Standard Hoofjack® it is ideal for:
The Medium Hoofjack® came about as a response to calls we've received over the years from people saying they were having difficulty keeping their heel on the ground when using the cradle on the front hoof. We finally realized that this was because the standard Hoofjack®base was too tall for someone under 5'10" when using the cradle on the front hoof. The medium base is made of linear polyethylene, is 12" in height and has a base diameter of 18". Overall height adjustment is 14" - 22". Two strong 90 lb pull magnets are included. The base material comes with a three year warranty against horse breakage. NOTE: For those under 5' 10" and intend on using the cradle on the front feet please see our Medium Hoofjack® The Medium Hoofjack® base is three inches shorter than the Standard base. To substitute the Medium base call 1-208-278-5283 to place your order or be sure to fill out the Special Instructions box on the order form to indicate your wish to substitute the Medium base for the Standard.
