    The bares work the best for my horse as she as round tall hoofs...we've got the heel cut down quite a bit but she still has a slight cylinder look to them..not like a club foot but just really round. AppyT is right..the easyboot website is filled with information and what boots will fit your horse's hoof shape the best. I looked at that site before I decided and glad I did.

    I hadn't heard that about the cavallos, I almost went with them but my trimmer said the epics would be more secure for jumping. I have only had mine since the 13th and have used them about 6 times so I don't think i've used them enough for the cable to stretch, I do know they sell replacement cables if they break or something. The 3rd time I used them I went on a 2hourish trail ride and the left boot fell off 4 times, very annoying but I'm not 100% sure I had her foot all the way in because it's a very tight fit, I haven't had any problems the last 3 times I used them.

    My horses experience the same hoof sensitivity when on rocks and gravel. They have healthy bare hoofs and are fine in the nice soft pasture and riding arena but need a little extra protection on terrain they are not accustomed to. Boots are the best way I have found to keep them comfortable and protected on the trails and still natural and barefoot, its also alot less expensive then keeping your horse shod all the time when you really only need protection when riding. I have tried ALOT of boots on the market and the Cavallo boots have been the easiest to use, the most durable and the most secure. I have never lost a boot (a problem I have found with some of the other boots out there) and have never caused rubbing or soreness on any of my horses. They are always my recommendation when someone is considering hoof boots, I don't leave home without them!
