As a rule, the purpose is to adjust the back strap on the inside of the foot so that there is a maximum one hole below the rivets. The strap will remain closed the best if there is no extra hole below the rivets.
- a horse has narrow gait and the ball rivets hit the leg next to it, rivets can also break the back strap in time
- back strap opens easily from the inside even if adjusted with no extra holes below the rivets
- we recommend installing the flat rivets to the boots inside of the foot. The installation instructions for flat rivets can be found here
- after you have adjusted the flat rivets, there is no need/possibility to reopen the rivets in every use and the strap remains close in every condition
