I'm going to bump this thread back into life, as there is good information here and the topic line makes it searchable.
I'm shopping to buy boots for a long distance ride through varied terrain...Mexico to Canada through AZ, UT, ID, Wy, and MT. I would rather not shoe my horses, as I am a believer in barefoot hoof health. I hope to be able to use the boots when necessary and go barefoot the rest of the time. I'm looking for ease of application and removal, durability, and especially comfort of the horse, including the ability to keep debris out of the boot.
I'm specifically looking at the Renegade and the Easyboot Epic or Easyboot Edge. I would like to hear from those who use those specific models.
Joe, I would particularly like to hear from you, since it appears you have experience with both Epic and Renegade.
PS. I also posted this request on the Tack and Equipment forum, but don't seem to be getting any responses.
