A boot jack is a tool used in the removal of boots. The boot heel is placed in the U-shaped opening of the boot jack, while the other foot is standing on the flat end of the boot jack, and then with a pull the foot is freed from the boot. Boot jacks help prevent stooping and struggling when removing tall riding boots that have been worn all day. And for sanitary purposes, they can keep hands clean of mud and manure while dirty riding boots are being removed. (U.S. Air Force photo)
