Agreed, definitely call Renegade directly if you haven't already.
One of my horses twists her hind hooves quite a bit at the walk, especially going up steep hills. This is exaggerated by the shape of her hooves (very round and needs the max cutback) I called Renegade and we exchanged multiple emails, I sent pics, etc... they sent me different parts for my specific problem (stiff captivators, cut lower) and lots of suggestions for adjustments and fitting. I have been successfully using Renegades on her hind hooves despite the twisting, not a single boot loss since that very first ride before I had them adjusted correctly. And I have ridden up and down some really
rough terrain, through deep mud, and at a full gallop. So yes, you can definitely use Renegades on horses that twist, it just might take some tweaking.
I have Vipers for the other horse's front hooves. LOVE them. They cup the heel more at the back of the shell, which I think will minimize twisting more. I plan to get some for the twisty horse at some point, but the Renegades are working just fine for now.
