I'm going to report again on my vipers. This weekend I did an intro ride on Sat and Sun in Dripping Springs with vipers on the front feet. VERY rocky! Luka did get a bit sore in the rear feet (no boots), but was fine in front. Had a longer 15 miler the next day and found a pair of regular renegades to borrow for his rears. We got a fast heavy storm early Sunday morning. Mucky sticky mud! Did my best to clean his hooves good, strapped the boots on tight and headed out. I had some twisting on a front and rear boot and one popped off (he was spinning around when that happened lol). I spent the first mile just walking out with light trotting when conditions werent too muddy. I only had to readjust 3 times at first, when I realized it wasnt the boots themselves (since mine never twist and i've gotten them wet and in muddy conditions before, but his ft are normally dry when I put them on). Thanks to having rear boots we were able to ride quicker that day and he was comfy :) . So try to keep their feet as clean as you can to put them on then you should be fairly good to go!
Oh and I very much prefer the vipers. Lower profile, better tread, the captivator on the vipers stays much cleaner between the heal bulbs and neoprene. Posted via Mobile Device
