I ordered Glove kit to see if it'll fit my horse and unfortunately it didn't. I used Bare for 2 years and Edge last year (basically they are the same as Glove, just with the extra tightening system on "hoof part"). NEVER had a rub, and never lost one in mud (and I used to trail ride a lot in all different parks in all different conditions).

No rubs yet..our farrier suggested using powder in bottoms before you put their hoof in it and also after the boot is on the put some powder in between the gator and the back of where it wraps around. No sure but maybe is can help prevent a rub??

I love my Cavallos! I struggled with boots for years before finally trying the Cavallo Simple boots on both my horses and they were the only boots that stayed on and didnt cause any rubs! The Easyboots were so difficult to use and expensive that I almost went back to shoes out of frustration. I'm happy I didn't, the Cavallo boots are easy to fit, are the most secure, the most durable and by far the easiest to put on. My young daughter can even put them on her pony by herself without any problems. If you are new to boots just talk to their customer service and they will help you find the right size info@cavallo-inc.com.

I havent found the easy boots easy at all. Seem to be extremely hard to get on. Cavelos go right on, they last, bit can rub. They are find for casual trail riding and stay on at a walk. I believe the renegades will be what I try next. I think fit is the most important thing.

True, and yeah I was eyeing the Renegades but my farrier insists putting easy gloves on Sky.

We'll just see what happens. May order another pair as backups or something.

Then you don't do it correct way. It takes me a min to put a boot on - either Edge or Bare (Edge is even faster because it's more loose in beginning), and another min to tighten the gator.

Obviously not, like I said they aint to easy. Not sure if they are on or not. Don't some of them require a mallet to get on ? People seem to fight with the easy boots quite a bit to get them on. If the design is such that it is hard to figure out the "right way" to get them on not doing alot of good. Maybe it has to do with the shape of my horses foot. The one time I got them on one came off on a canter. I know some people like them but I'm not one of them. The renegades look to be a far superior design.

^^ I'm telling myself all the time I have to make a video of how I do it, and I always forget. May be one day...

P.S. I'm not using any extra strap or mallet or whatever to put them on. Just a bare boot.
