Nothing a plastic bag can't fix! Seriously as much as he likes these boots, I really cannot consider anything else. With other boots, he gives me hard time about putting them on and then he picks his hind feet up like a cat trying to shake off water. We had our second ride ever in them yesterday. He saw me pick them up and offered a hind leg for me to put them on. He then proceeded to trot around the ring in the floatiest (is that a word?) trot he's ever done. He's got 6 months before this gravel thing even becomes an issue. It's just good to know I have another option than putting shoes back on.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I use Easy Boot Gloves and have had good luck with them. My riding buddies and I were going on a ride to a very rocky place and we all ordered EBG's. We were riding a Quarter Horse size 1.5, a Quarab size 1.5, an Arabian size 1 and a Tennessee Walker size 1.

We rode them for two days with only one incident. The Arabian came out of one hoof boot once but it was quickly put back on.

I used my boots all summer long after my horse chipped a hoof and I was trying to get his feet in good shape as I hadn't had him long. They saved a ride for my husband one day on his QH...and recently another ride for my cousin's husband. They were 100 miles away and his horse was tender after having been trimmed. My hubby had mine in the trailer and they plopped them on Reagan and off they went.

We all went to central Texas again recently and the horses were in Easy Boot Gloves and some in Epics. My horse lost his boot once going down a hill/up a hill at a gallop (hit a gallop in 2 strides woo hoo...) I stopped him and put the boot back on and off we went.

The EBG work wonderfully for me on Biscuit. I do his feet myself and he has a mustang roll. The EBG made a kinda plopping sound on hubby's gelding but I don't do Sarge's feet - a farrier does most of the time. I need to put the little tags on the front - can't remember what they are called but I think it would make Sarge's fit better.
