Update on the Powerstraps
Well, I finally managed to get the straps on and go out for a ride. I was very careful to put the straps on according to instruction. I even tried one boot first and put it on the horse before I did the other boot. So results were: not good. One boot came off after only a short trot. 50 feet in long grass, uneven ground.
I'm not a happy camper. There has been a decent amount of money put out now - between getting the right size (3 boots), shipping twice and now the power straps.
According to everything I am told by the website and the very highly recommended store that sold me the boots, these boots do fit my horse. Hrumph. Ya? Well, then why do they fall off. In desperation, the next time I get time to try again, I will try the athletic tape suggested solution. Honestly though, I'm not impressed that I have to fiddle to get the dang things to work.
If the tape doesn't work then I just put out a few hundred bucks for naught. These things must work for somebody or the company wouldn't be sellilng them, right? <sigh>
I will post the results of the next test hopefully in a few days.
