I love Gina! She helped me a ton to get boots for my mare. She put a size 00 heel captivator on a size 0 boot shell and all sorts of crazy stuff. Unfortunately, I think my mare just might not be a boot horse. The way her foot lands twists the boot right off at the most random times. My Arabian can hold them on fine, even though they are a little small on her.

(By the way... Barely used size 0 burgundy renegades for sale... )

I'm sure they've already suggested this if it is the right thing to do, but have you tried putting them on tighter? I know you aren't supposed to have the straps on tight in Renegades, but my twisty horse needs hers a bit more snug than normally recommended, and then has no problems. I had to adjust the cables and the velcro shorter so I could put them on tighter (plus she's max cutback so needed them a bit shorter anyway).

My favorite thing about Renegades is the amazing customer service and their dedication to making the boots work for you, including custom parts or tweaking fitting. I was doubting whether my twisty horse was a boot candidate at all, but they figured it out after several different ideas, and now she's barefoot and happy!

Sorry it took so long to post, had to get to a computer. Here they are.
And the link is to a video of Rikki trying them out. The quality sucks cause I was filming it with my iphone and it was getting dark. He's wearing the vipers in the front and the old pair of renegades in the back.

I got mine yesterday and used Renegades in the front (didn't have time to adjust the wire to make the new front Vipers smaller) and vipers in the back on a 19 mile endurance practice today. Love them!

No twisting and my girl gaited more than usual...won't gait in boas and I had four pair of boas break in 3 weeks!

I'm exchanging the renegades but tried them now for over 60 miles in last 2 weeks. Only one flew off in a gallop and one twisted first ride...still way better track record than boa!
