I was looking into getting some hoof boots for my gelding- he's barefoot right now. I really wanted to get something that would prevent his hooves from cracking and chipping, and I'm not really interested in shoeing him since his hooves are fine when he's on pasture.
I've spent quite some time looking at reviews for both the cavallo simple and easyboot trail, but I'm honestly too indecisive to make a decision ;) I really don't have a fortune to invest in a pair of boots right now, especially since I'll only be using them for 1-2 hours (or less) on trails in the summer.
I would really like to know how these hold up with loping and galloping, on dirt roads, and in water. Did any of you have any problems with rubbing or fit? I know that I should get him measured after his hooves are trimmed- I'll get my farrier to help me with this next time he comes. This will be my first pair of boots (and my horse's too!) so I'm pretty clueless! :P Also, Im not sure if this will make a difference or not, but my boy's hooves grow very quick! The description for the Trail's said they were good for horses through all stages in the hoof cycle?
Any help or advice you have will be much appreciated!
