The #WIWT Hoof Pick Belt

I posted this #WIWT picture on Red Clay Soul’s Instagram this morning, and got some questions about the belt:

This is a hoof pick belt from Tory Leather in Oak Bark color, with a nickel buckle.  You can find it here…you will be VERY happy with the price

    Was hesitant to buy because it says it was a ladies belt, however it looks great. How is sizing?

    I own 3 of these belts. I purchased my first one about 10 years ago from Orvis and paid $58.00 for it. It was most likely made for Orvis by Tory. I liked the belt so much I decided to start making them. The hook is available at Tack supply shops or Equestrian supply stores. The hooks retail for about $2.75. I purchased a Pelican hook from a Marina supply store for about $3.00 ,but never got around to making a belt.
    A hoof pick is used to clean out the frog area of a horses hoof. That can be a very rancid area. There is nothing feminine about it. The guys that actually wore these belts for utilitarian purposes are some of the most rugged guys you could ever meet.

    The sizing can be tricky. My initial belt is marked as large. I measure a 33 in the waist and would probably have done better with a medium because the belt stretched out over time. In a perfect scenario I would try it on and get the best fit.
