I often wonder how many people actually buy another pair of the same boot?
I've tried lots of different ones and never had much success with any of them, they either rub somewhere, fall off, make the horse feel 'stumbley' or give me so much backache getting them on I don't feel like I want to ride by then
All I need is some sort of a strong but light rubber pad that can be fixed onto the sole of the hoof somehow to protect it from sharps stones and wear & tear on hard or rough ground. All that boot around the hoof is way too bulky and cumbersome & I've had a few too many near miss accidents when they've fallen off to feel confident in using them again
Can someone not come up with an invention to give me what I want?
Until then I will also have to stick with shoes for the time of year I need them

Thenrie, a gal who rides in the mountains uses Renegades but had someone switch out the velcro straps for leather with a buckle. Much better.

If I bring my horse out to the station with me next year I'll be buying two mor pairs of the gloves, so that I have enough for all
Four feet plus a spare pair. It will be interesting to see how they go here with all the sharp rocks.

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.

Interesting reading about the gloves - I've been using easyboots for years and years, and switched to epics as soon as they came out and haven't looked back since. I did switch all of my clips on the front to upclips (the regular ones always kept popping open) and haven't had any problems.

I've been curious about the gloves so this is interesting reading.

The gloves fitted about the same asthe epics I had. I just didn't like how bulky the epics were.

I am in communication with Easycare now. I just sent them a whack of pics. Maybe they will see something I don't. I'll let everyone know what they say.

We have the Easyboot Glove for our horses as well and we also have had problems like the straps becoming unattached to the boot itself. Before these we had the Easyboot Edge and we had more problems with those than the glove. With the edge the metal strips can ben and be very hard to feed through and with my horse if I tightened the boot too much he would become sore. Easyboot has come out with a new boot called the Easyboot trail and it slips on just like the glove does but the straps are around the boot itself. We are getting a pair for one of our horses and seeing how well it works. I will let you know how the Trail boots work out!

Easyboots response so far...

The first reply was that my horse is long in the toe. I don't believe it. My trimmer who checks up on my work says I can't go any shorter or I will lame her and any other horse couldn't tolerate what I do now. I go as short as I do because otherwise forward growth gets away on her. She was on the track with terribly long toes and contracted heels for 4 years before I rescued her. She will never have "perfect" hooves, but my trimmer says that I am doing an awesome job. Here are a few of the pics I sent Easycare. Do you guys see long toes? These are about 10 days post-trim.
