This is why boots don't work for a large number of people. Unless you can keep up on the trimming weekly, yes your horse will outgrow his boots within a few weeks. Some boots have more play than others, but I am very glad to be back to shoes. The whole nonsense of keeping the boots fitting properly, trying to find ones that stay on if you do anything more than walk, and spending half your ride trying to find a boot you lost, and not worth the hassle. I'm finding this whole boot industry to be marketing hooey. Either your horse is comfortable barefoot or it's not.
