The Vipers have arrived!

Got my Vipers! Bright green. I think the best improvement, to me at least, is they have kinda reshaped the heel captivater and it hugs the heels better and it's easier to get it down then before. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

I am looking forward to seeing them! I have 2 unused pairs of size 2 that I am going to try to exchange for 0's, because I think the 1's are too big for my stallion. No matter what I do, they twist on his feet. My hoof trimmer is going to use his Easyboot fitting kit to help me.

Im thinking your stallion just isnt a boot candidate. My big mare was same way. Its the way the foot lands not quite even. I could put her rengades on Bo who actually had smaller feet but landed square and they stay right where you put them.

Have you actually talked to the Renegade company? They are more than willing to help.

Not officially available no. But you can call up the company, I can give you the number, and you can order them. They only have certain colors and sizes.

Bright green! That's cool. Luka and I took his vipers out today and had some hill and trotting practice. These things are great!

I am impatiently waiting for the 125l x 130w to be in production. I really need those for the fronts. He's got 125 x 125 right now and they are a snug fit...fairly easy on but snug coming off lol. Perfect on his rears though

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.
