    Some of us got the vipers already. I did hear from a friend this week, that they arent selling them right now as they are making a modification.. I didnt call to verify though. I just know that I really can't wait until they make the other size I need!

    Hoof boots

    I've only used Renegade boots. My last horse had a very high heel and the boots would not stay on. I hated them! But so many of my friends used them and thought they were great. My newer horse, Romeo, has been barefoot for several years and has a naturally low heel. The Renegades stay on him much better. I also know people who love Easy boot gloves and the new Easy boot back country. I really think it depends on the size and shape of your horse's hoof. Try to find someone to borrow from, so you can see what works best for your horse. Good luck!

    Thanks everyone! I'm leaning towards Gloves + power straps right now mainly due to price. The farrier is coming out next week so I'll see if he has any he could try on. I'm pretty sure my mare is 0.5W on fronts, I haven't measured her hinds. It looks like I could get a pair and straps for $110 on Riding Warehouse. Whee!

    I thought I'd chime in to say I just ordered a pair of vipers this afternoon, so they are available for sale to the public. Gena (Renegade rep) said they'd ship out today and I'd get them by the weekend. I am so excited!!!

    If you go Easy Boots, get the Fit Kit first. That will ensure you get the right boot and save a headache. I use the Easy Boot Glue Ons. There are virtually no rocks where we train, so no point in anything but a bare hoof except if I am traveling to somewhere rocky.

    I got the Gloves and power straps. The boots are a bit large for my mare (measured before the trim instead of afterwards...duh) but I will simply exchange them for the next size down. I can't wait to ride with them! Do I need to get my horse used to them at all before we go for an easy trail ride? She's pretty tolerant of stuff on her feet and ankles.

    I let renegades send me the wrong size, sent em back after messign with them a few minutes. HAd EB gloves on the way. I misread chart and ordered wrong size, I am just completely over it. Cold hard steel and be done with it. No more gadgets for me . Tried it, got the tshirt, (returned the tshirt) now lets ride, really ride.

    I think you'll like the Gloves, they are still my favorite. They have to be really tight when you put them on. With the power straps, I never lost any in 4 years. I had rubs with the older gaiter, not with the new model. I still put Chamois cream on the pastern when I go for longer rides to prevent rubs.

    I have the Epic: more forgiving in terms of fit, but not as easy to put on.
    I like my Renegades, but they're bigger, heavier and prone to cable breaking. But they're the best fit on one of my boys. So it also dépends on hoof conformation.

    What are the vipers? I've never heard about that (but i'm in Europe)

    Otherwise, I love Renegades: they are very easy to use, very strong and you can replace the pieces if something breaks

    Vipers, new product from renegade. Same basic design. Harder thinner plastic. And for some reason the heal captivator just isnt right. Maybe was the size.
