Interesting. Haven't heard that before, but haven't had a prob fitting gloves on a few horse's hinds. I actually felt it was the other way round, the Easycare boots all being slightly longer than they are wide, since the demise of the original OM, until the wide Gloves came out - now I should be able to get Gloves on my boy's wide front feet too! I think that Gloves are unsuitable for a lot of horses though, as they need to have pretty perfect hoof form to fit them, there being no fastening system.
We can event in hoof boots?? You've made my day! Dressage phase too or just the jumping stuff?
In Australia at least, you're not allowed to compete in dressage with boots - it's seen as an unfair advantage or something ridiculous. But it's great to hear Jumper4ever saying they're allowed in their area. But yeah, unfortunately agree that 'them boots aren't made for jumping'. They will usually do on smaller jumps tho. Mike, do you know if Easycare are working on any designs that will be better for jumping?
