I do prefer the Renegades for my horses.

Where I live, the only place to ride long distance is on graveled logging roads. So I have to boot every time I ride, unless I'm doing just a mile or two. If I rode on moderate terrain and only needed front boots for running into an occasional stony patch to prevent bruises, I might use Easyboots. Especially if the one mare who gets rubs did not have very thin and sensitive skin.

The design of Renegades is a little less sturdy so I don't let them sit around muddy but make sure to hose them off. Easyboots can be thrown in a corner for a few weeks, covered in mud.

I'm sure there are some horses that keep Easyboots on better than Renegades. I just haven't met one yet. My friends who are casual riders prefer Renegades too because they are so easy to put on and keep on without having to be able to trim their own hooves.

For the casual person I recommend Renegades. For the serious person who can do some hoof maintenance and wants a little tougher boot, it might be worth the extra fiddling to get Easyboots with an exact fit that will stay on.

I guess you have to decide whether you prefer to spend more time initially making sure the boots fit right, and then taking boots off and on, or if you prefer to spend less time with all that and more time maintaining boots after rides by keeping them hosed off.
