I like convenience, and I have easy boot trail boots and several pairs of old macs. The old macs literally never wear out, the trail boots do - but they are also less expensive than "others" - and they are super easy to put on...the macs are a huge pita to get on which is probably why they stopped making them. I am going to get the back country gloves next. As far as traction, the trial boots do amazingly well in rocky and hard terrain so the company obviously has "grip" down.
But, as other posters have mentioned, your horses "foot shape" might be a limiting factor w respect to which boots are best. Do the size kit..it's worth it.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
