It was me that gave up on the Renegades. I tried every different size option, trimming strategy and wire tension and my horse gets them off every time with ease. My friend who also has a TB has no issues with them staying on whatsoever. I just got my pair of easyboot trails. I won't be able to try them on until Saturday. If they look like keepers, I'll post back with results.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Puck, Did you ever try riding using bell boots with the renegades? I just cant help but imagine your horse is stepping on them or has a very strange movement to his gait to cause such issues. I have never seen a horse have that kind of issues before. Twisting, yes...fixable tho. Boggles my mind trying to wrap my mind around what exactly is going on. (BTW did you sell all your rennies? Im looking) My colt wore a set that were not cut back and stepped on the backs of them a good bit but they still stayed on.

Hi NM, just came here from other Easyboot thread, can't recall if I commented on this one before & only looked at 1st page of thread...

Yes, unfortunately the Gloves, having no fastening system are a very 'finicky' fit and not suitable for hooves which are flared or oddly shaped. I think they're a great boot actually - & many endurance riders will agree these days too, but while there are heaps of 'pros', your problem is a major 'con'.... obviously! I am interested how & by whom they were fit? An Easycare accredited fitter, or otherwise? I would think it fair & reasonable that if it was an actual boot fitter & they told you they were a perfect fit, that Easycare should offer an exchange or such if size is the issue. If it was anyone else calling themselves a boot fitter, it be their responsibility to 'keep the customer happy'.

Loosie, there aren't even any Easyboot suppliers in my area, much less a fitter. :( But I did take careful measurements and contacted Easycare in Arizona to verify that I was getting the right size.

Their latest email says that, "oh... guess what... we just don't have a boot that fits that shape of a hoof. If it fits the length, it doesn't fit the width and vice versa." Interesting that NOW they say this, but two months ago they were only too happy to find a suitable size for me. I am NOT impressed. And they are not going to take them back. I'm stuck with them.

I have rode Biscuit at a walk, jog, trot - extended trot and a canter in his Easy Boot Gloves. I used them this weekend and went up a steep (like SCARY STEEP) hill and then back down the side of it and his boots stayed on just fine thank God.

Biscuit has tender feet and the ride yesterday on rocks was too much for him. I put the boots on and was glad that I had them.

Trinity, that's very cool. In light of the other thread where we have been discussing this mare's toes, I will try them ONE MORE TIME and see how it goes. Barring that, up for sale. I have a pair of 1.5s with powerstraps and a single 2.0.
