MPB - I did not get the fit kit.There is no local supplier AT ALL here. I don't think it would have helped me anyway because they description of the fit from the manufacturer and supplier was not, IMO, very good. There are no bubbles or warps on the boots when they are on, but there is a gap at the toe about 1/2 up. It's not alot, and is not at the top, but I think it is enough to cause the trouble for me.
Wild spot and Trailhorse -- the gloves and the epics do not fit the same. Just because one works doesn't mean the other will. Actually the gloves are a very unique fit according to what I was told.
QOS - lucky you! I wish mine worked. My horse definitely does not have high heels, and the Easycare people make it clear that they won't work for high heels. So that is not the trouble in this case. Where do you ride? What gaits? I can keep them on at a walk, but at a trot it's dicey and a canter - forget it! I ride trail, road and "off trail" ie. straight through the bush!
jaydee -- there are glue on gloves available. It's the same as the regular gloves but without the gaiter and you literally glue them on. If you can invent some way to stick just the rubber sole on a hoof and make it stay - you need to go on "Dragon's Den" and get it happening!
Someone posted that the renegades didn't work for them... Honestly, that's the first time I've heard that. When I get enough $ together, I will be buying renegades. But I will be MUCH more careful about the fit and will be sending lots of pics and communications to the company at the time I'm ready to order.
