Well..I'm exhausting all options before putting shoes on my mare. I don't trust farriers around here and I don't want to have to settle for one because I can't shoe myself (I can trim).
So..next step is easyboots for any riding outside of the arena.
I was looking at their site and figured the Grips would be best for the mud/gravel/pavement/water I trail/road ride on..but I'm not sure if it's too much traction? O.o Can we have too mumuch traction? Lol
Soo..any opinions on these as a "replacement" for shoes? I'd rather spend $200 on these as opposed to $80-120 for shoes every cycle. The only issue she actually has with her feet (that haven't been fault to a poor trim) is that she bruises on rocks/gravel. I'd rather stop it now before it decides to abcess instead of just hoping it stays with bruising and no more. She's sound in the indoor arena sand (about 5-6" deep), just not in the outdoor (only about 1" deep) or out on the trails. :/
