This is my 11 year old TB gelding Titan. He is 16.3h and had the worst hooves I had ever seen! We tried every known remedy, diet, and supplement we could get our hands on with no success. Then a new farrier moved to Alabama from Montana and told us about KOMBAT BOOTS. I was almost resolved to retire him as a pasture pet since he was unsound. His hooves were without a solid sole wall and his heels were flat on the ground. He could not have shoes nailed on since his hooves were so brittle there was nothing to keep the nails from ripping out and taking chunks of hoof with them. I googled Kombat Boots and emailed you and explained my situation to you.
You graciously sent me 2 free bags of KOMBAT BOOTS to help Titan “get back in the groove”.
We were AMAZED!! So many times we heard the same old saying “It’s a Thoroughbred, that’s just the way their hoofs are…etc. After 2 months of daily KOMBAT BOOTS Titan’s hooves had improved so much my farrier was stunned! He said we FINALLY found the solution for Titan!
I Thank God every day for KOMBAT BOOTS!
Titan is barefoot, sound, and his sole walls are thick and healthier than they have ever been. His heels are well off the ground and his frogs are deep! His cracks are healing and there is remarkable new growth (apparent from my pictures). All my pictures are original and unaltered. There is nothing better on the market! EVER!!
Thank you KOMBAT BOOTS!!!

3-4 months use of Kombat Boots
“Drifter is a 9 year old registered Quarter Horse. He has been plagued with white line disease but is now growing a lot of hoof thanks to the Kombat Boots. He has really come a long way!! My farrier Steve and I just can’t believe the amount of growth that Drifter has in the short period of time he has been on Kombat Boots. In probably another two or three shoeings he should be completely grown out. Thanks again for everything!!!!”

“This horse is proof that Kombat Boots works!! Nothing else did it for him. I really don’t know what I would have done without this product. I had already spent quite a bit of money trying to figure out what his problem was. Needless to say he will stay on Kombat Boots for as long as he stays on our farm. We have several other horses on our farm that are on KB for hoof issues. It really is working for hoof growth. It is making some of our not so desirable hooves very pliable, with a stronger wall. if I had stopped at the first month…well where would Bou be? It really does work all the time.”

This is Bonnie Serres. I am a neighbor to Patrick Gruninger, in Anthony Florida. When they are out of town I care for their horses. It was during the summer that I had an opportunity to see first hand some changes in a number of his horses.
I have an aged “halter mare” who has exhibited a number of the problems that go along with those typical horses. One problem that is not limited to any particular type is a non-sweater. Our mare was normal until about 12 years old, and after a foal. Since that time, she doesn’t sweat. This is a huge problem especially given our location. Patrick brought me a bag of KombatReady to add to her feed. We did start it late in the summer, and our weather is cooling now. So far, she has not changed in that area, although I did see two horses next door that responded dramatically. (We also added KombatBoots)
The huge change that I was not expecting was in her mobility. She has had arthritis and leg problems bad enough that it was difficult to raise her feet for the farrier. She has been lame for years and been xrayed with no real diagnosis. She is now moving and walking almost normally. We are able to lift both front feet for trimming and shoes without fear of injury to us or the horse. This is a milestone.
We won’t give up on the sweating. She’s a big girl, maybe she just needs a little longer for things to work.
Just wanted to share our story with you…………….
I was introduced to Kombat Boots summer of 2009. Dr. Kerry Ridgway actually told me about this product, as I had him examine my horse that has hoof/feet issues.
I tried everything prior to using Kombat Boots such as Biotin, special vitamins, hoof crèmes, you name it, I tried it, nothing was working & I needed my 5 year old QH gelding to grow hoof BAD!!!
This stuff works!!! As of today, (April 2010) my horse has lots of hoof to work with, it is actually hard and thick, not crumbling as it was before! My farrier and vet are both impressed on how they have been able to work with his feet. Previously we couldn’t do a thing with him because he would not grow hoof.
So I am grateful of course to Dr. Ridgway for turning me on to this product! Since then I have put my other 2 Quarter horses on it and their feet are great as well as their hair coats. One other thing I have noticed with this product is that I think it has helped my other gelding with colic issues. He usually has an episode of colic a couple times a year, and so far in the last 10 months he hasn’t had one bout! My horses are fed Kombat Boots daily along with hay and that is it.
I’m a believer!!

“It is a great product! My Arab mare finally has a mane and tail! After years of scratching it off every summer, this year it is growing and she isn’t scratching. She is also growing lots of foot in the front. She has very thin soles and has had several episodes of lameness due to this issue. But in the last few months she has had no problems and her feet really grow faster.”

“I started the farm’s two worst looking yearlings on the Kombat Boots a month and a half before Keeneland. By the start of the sale, they were the two best looking yearlings we had. The hoof growth, coat, weight, muscle tone and just everything in general was phenomenal. Everything they said to do, it did. We are very pleased with the product.”

“I have spoken and e-mailed you both over the past year about concerns over my 10 year old paint mare’s poor foot condition. Even though the results seen by other customers have not happened as quickly for me, I have to say that the farrier and I are thrilled with the changes in her feet. I would highly recommend your product (and do). I had tried every product under the sun before yours and have used Kombat Boots for a solid year and will never take this mare off this. Thanks again for your calls and e-mails, I found your company to be very customer friendly with a genuine concern of helping to improve the quality of a horse’s well being.”
“I gave both bags to a walking horse trainer to feed a horse that we had been having trouble with his feet. He don’t grow any foot at all and his walls are very thin for a walking horse. Every time we would reset his pads, he would be lame for 2-3 weeks. The lameness was not from close nails or sole pressure but just from terrible feet. No wall, no sole, shelly walls, etc.
They fed him both bags and I reset him 3 weeks ago and his feet had grown more than I had ever saw. I trimmed approx. 1/2 inch of wall and his soles weren’t bruised as normal. I was amazed. He did not go lame after being shod either.
I tried to get the trainer to call you and order more for this horse but I don’t think he did.
I will tell him again because I think you have a good product.”
“I think he has about 1/2 a bag or a little less left. Sorry, I didn’t take before and after pictures. I really didn’t expect to see this kind of difference. You know how it is, all these products on the market make all the claims to cure anything that can happen to a horse, so I really didn’t expect to see this much difference.”
“The bags I picked up at the clinic are almost gone – its a wonderful product. Can you send me a price list? I would like to keep it on hand as several horses here need it. One mare had most of her front hoof debrided due to white line. In several months its almost back to touching the shoe again. Another gelding came in recently with many leg/hoof problems and I think its helped him as well. His farrier mentioned that he’s not seen a heel come on as quickly as this one has.”
“Sorry I haven’t returned your calls but I have been busy. The first horse that I started on Kombat Boots is improving well. Almost all of his cracks are going away from the start. He use to loose shoes a lot but hasn’t lost one since starting Combat Boots. The owner has already ordered some more from you and is feeding it to another horse to help him put on some weight. The other horse started it about three weeks ago and I will be seeing him soon so I will see his progress.
This is the only supplement where the results are dramatic enough to see.”
“I am a skeptic about most farrier supplements because most don’t work but, so far this seems to be working. It has been 6 weeks since we started a donkey on kb, it had white line disease all the way to the coronary band. We have been treating with all kinds of white line products but it was unresponsive. Now that we are giving it kb it grew down new growth about a quarter of the way. I will let you know if it does continue to grow or if it was just coincidence.
Until the next 6 weeks.”
“Took me awhile to start using the two bags you were generous enough to let me try. I am about half way through the supply with daily doses to my two “unemployed” horses. I have noticed their feet have improved significantly. Chronic cracks in my quarter horse have diminished and the hooves on my thoroughbred appear to be holding their shape better than normal. These guys get trimmed every now and then. They have been over due for awhile, but their feet look strong. I have been talking to my clients about Kombat and have generated some interest.
If you plan to be in Cincinnati, I’ll see you there. If not, I’ll keep you posted on the continued progress.”
Best to you,
“Thanks for your inquiry concerning my mare. She is doing great, has back shoes off and front still has shoes.The front are growing out very well. I took pictures at beginning and am going to take more now.She can now go out into dry lot and she appears to feel great. She goes back to the clinic the 24 th of this month for trim.They are really surprised at her progress and well pleased with it. She was really in bad shape.
My farrier who comes to do horses at my home is trying the Kombat Boots on his horses. I had given him info when mine was on it for awhile.
I finished up what I had bought, so hope to be able to order more in about 3 weeks.
Again thanks so much for your e-mail.”
We have had such success with your product that we are starting a few more horses in the therapetic program on Kombat Boots…YAY!…..thank you for a winning product! I also should let you know that my equine acupuncturist and Eastern Medicine specialist was very pleased to hear my horses were both on Kombat Boots, especially my wee lil Icelandic who has chronic laminitis.

Kombat Boots are amazing! I adopted a horse from Peaceful Ridge Rescue in Davie, FL. When he arrived at rescue he was covered in rain rot and ended up losing most of his hair. Then a farrier cut his feet too short and he has had hoof problems because of that requiring shoes with lifts etc. I tried everything for 2 years. I finally tried Kombat Boots! The results are amazing. My horse is now barefoot in back and ujust has regular shoes in front –no more lifts. He is no longer skinny and has a beautiful coat. Thank you for making such a wonderful product that does more than I could ever hope for. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a horse. I am a trainer and this by far is the best supplement I have ever used.
