I got my vipers this afternoon, less than 48 hours after I placed my order. Not sure how they differ from the original design, but they look pretty neat and far superior than my old boa boots. I look forward to trying them out tomorrow. My horse is a very good communicator and I'm certain he will let me know what he thinks of them.

The vipers passed the initial test this afternoon. They were super easy to put on and adjust. I put them through a little walk/trot up and down the paved road until I felt they were fitting well. Then, up/down a decent hill on hard-packed dirt road and a little hacking in the hills off-road. In all, my horse moved freely and the boots did not move or appear to chafe. I was impressed and a little surprised with the traction of slick plastic bottoms. I'll need to do a little bit more tweaking to the fit tomorrow, but I believe these boots will be a good solution for my horse.

Oh wow i'd never heard of the renegades or vipers before. I've tried boas (so-so), easyboot epics (horse cantered right out of them even adjusted super tight), and all of the cavello models (worked well, but sometimes rubbed, especially on longer trails and if my horse's hoof shaped changed at all they also came off).

We trail ride a lot in the summer and my arab has pretty round feet. The renegades look and sound great - better than the other's i've tried. Oh I forgot we had tried old mac as well but they were just awful. Back to renegade vipers - where did you guys get yours? I don't see any option to order them yet on the site?

I called Renegade's number listed on their website and ordered the vipers that way.

Oh cool how much are they and what's the difference between them and the regular renegades?

Well I had to exchange for a smaller size on the Gloves, but I tried them on my mare today. I was able to get them on without a mallet (lol) but they seemed super snug. I'm pretty sure she thought I was trying to pull her hooves off, trying to remove the boots. :P Anyways, she seems to LOVE them. She had the most delightfully surprised look on her face when she hit the gravel. We'll take them for a ride this weekend. :)

Dang it! I ordered a new pair of Renegades back in August and asked about the Vipers. I was told they wouldn't be available for another few months and I hear you got them in September.

I would have waited another few weeks had I known...

Miss Lacy already had a pair of Renegades but with 500 miles on then they were starting to show some pretty good wear......So, just like when I was a kid, I'll get her a new pair every fall....

I'm under the impression that you can only get Vipers so far (pre-release) if they have your size and color in stock already. (Which is why they aren't officially released yet, I think) I got mine a while ago, and I know the availability was pretty hit or miss then. That might be why you couldn't get them in August.

I don't know if the vipers are regularly available yet, but I got the impression they were pretty well stocked when I ordered mine.

I absolutely LOVE my Renegades! Mind you, I don't do endurance riding so much as just mountain trail ride, but the have held up for 3 seasons over shale, bog, rivers and creeks, etc. I would definitely recommend them to anyone just based on my experience of them vs the easy boot!
