I use Easyboots (bares, now edge) for several years. It takes me couple min to put the boot on (actually from day 1, so I'm always wonder WHY it takes so long from other peopel). MUCH easier than Old Macs. Cavallos didn't even stay on my paint (returned them back right away).

Henia, in my experience Easyboots designed more towards oval boot. You can order fit kit before ordering actual boot: EasyCare Fit Kit | Glue-On & Glove Fitting Tool | EasyCare Inc. or measure the hoof with template: http://www.easycareinc.com/App_Syste...t-template.pdf

I am surprised so many people hate the Epics. I really like them! I have to occasionally patch a gaiter because after a while they can tear, but as far as staying on, I have had zero problems. I ride in the mountains, up and down hills, in the rocks, etc. Never lost a one! I only boot the fronts. I even use the same set of boots on two different horses and have had no problems.

If they could make the gaiters a tad more durable, I would be 100% pleased!

we've been using easy boot epics, easy boot gloves, cavallo simple boots and a few years ago old macs. ALL the school horses are booted and while the epics are a major pain to get on (especially when you have to put on 6 pairs because the kids don't have the strength) We've had boots come off twice once was a cavallo while I was galloping up a grassy hill, the other was a glove that was the wrong size, even then it stayed on for weeks.

Now I'm forced to buy boots if I want to ride my horse :( I recently found this:
Boa® Horse Boot | Advanced Hoof Protection | EasyCare Inc
Looks nice, and seems very easy to put on, I like this lacing. Has anyone tried it?

Has anyone checked the Renegades? They come in bright colors as well as black which would make a dropped boot easier to find. A friend who rides in the mountains a lot found these to be the best for her horse. Unfortunately they are not made for a more oval hoof.

I have the cavello simple boots and have gone on trail with them and even galloped and jumped and they never came off. However, when they're breaking in they sometimes rub so you have to watch for that.

The only negative is the velcro started to not stick as well on one of mine although there's so much of it that the outer strap came loose while we were running and the boot STILL stayed on! So I like them
