What are you finding hard?

I had been looking at those as an upgrade from my current epics.. but I don't need to buy something that is a PITA to put on, since I already have more than enough fun with the epics.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

They have to fit snug in the base and you have to seat them good. Then you've also got to make sure the base in the back is sitting right and didnt get folded down when you seated the toe and let them put their hoof down to get it into the base. I'm sure it takes practice but I'm not real happy with them. They are soft on his bulbs and pastern joint...i'm ordering some renegades and I'm going to see how they fit before i make a decision. Luckily they both have a good return policy with the people i'm buying from.

ive seen people with rubber malets trying to get easy boots on, way to much work for me. Renegades are a much better mousetrap,

That's what I like about them. I'm calling today to get them ordered. I'm super excited about getting a pair in. So is the lady that sold me the easyboot gloves as she wants to see how they go on. I told her they looked way easier to get on. I just wish they came in royal blue :)

I know, me too. My boy's colors are blue as well. I saw a pair of the vipers, and they are blue but it's not royal blue :(

Thumbs up Vipers

I think the Vipers will be out soon...

... and they are AMAZING! I was already a fan of the Renegades, but the Vipers are even better. I tested them out on the most rugged trail in this area (some call it suicide hill, many refuse to ride it... great boot test!) last weekend and was VERY impressed, absolutely zero problems at all gaits and on all terrain. They are very similar to Renegades, but with minor changes that make them even better. It is like the PERFECT boot.

I just bought the vipers. I called Renegade about sizing and she told me to try the vipers. I got the 135mmx135mm Stinking round foot horse. I'm trying them out tomorrow and I'll report back!

They don't have all sizes and colors in Vipers yet and they don't really have a time line for getting them. I called today because I may be needing the next size up (crazy TB with huge feet!) and they don't have the Vipers in the next size. Which really bums me out because they seem fantastic and now I hate to go back to the older style. I wasn't aware they were going to be doing blue. Let me know how you like it if you can get your hands on one.
