I got the Easy boots but didn't like them at all. They seemed hard wearing at first but cheaply made to me. I was going to stick with horse shoes but my wife insisted on trying the horse boots from Cavallo. They were more expensive but they are like putting sneakers on my horse! Never had a problem with them for 4 months now.

I think it really depends on the type of riding you do, how much you like to pamper your horse or if you are more budget conscious.

Cavallo Sport Boot Cavallo Horse And Rider (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Sports Medicine - Barefo

There's a new model of Cavallo boot called the Sport boot. It's not round like the simple boots. It more of an oval shape and fits much better than the simple boot. I don't use mine a lot, but I do like the fit, think they're easy to get on, and they don't come off.

Well, first off, my horse has really nice feet. They usually never chip, but with all the riding I do on asphalt and rocky areas her feet naturally wear down a lot. I toyed with the idea of putting shoes on, but that was going to be way too expensive and I wasn't to thrilled about the idea of having to adjust her back to barefoot for the winter. Several days before a trip to the mountains I decided to try Easyboots. They are identical to the epics, but do not have the gaiters.

I love them! At first we did not use the optional covers over the cleats because I wanted to make sure they would stay on. We went through belly deep rivers, mid-canon deep mud bogs, cantering up hills, and over large slick boulders. They definitely passed the test! I regret not putting the covers on though, because they did chew up their feet a little. They were not too difficult to use though, just carry a hoofpick and they come of well-enough. I like this though, because if they came off too easily, that means they would probably come off while riding as well.

I use them a couple of times a week trail riding, just so her feet don't wear down too much. I have had no problems up until two nights ago. I think she pulled one off with either an overstep or it may have been pulled off in one of the animal holes. I'm going back to look for it tomorrow, I wish they made them in colors so that they would be easier to find! Haha Either way, I will be buying gaiters to keep them on and will even buy another boot if I have to. I am definitely a huge fan of the Easycare products. The company is very helpful and the products are well-made.

I hope I was of some help! Good luck with whatever boot you choose.

I really like Cavallo sport boots... and have them for my boys (in Pink) LOL

I have also used in the past Old Mac, and liked them.

I don't like easy boot, cause the way they bit into the hoof wall, I don't think its healthy for a bare foot horse... How ever I have not looked into them recently.

Thanks for all your input! I ended up getting the Cavallo Simple Boots...I've had them for over a year now, and they've worked great! They fit both Sam and Buck, no turning issues or coming-off-while-riding-at-a-full-racehorse-gallop problems, either! Oh, and Sam looks so cute with his "shoes" on.
I am so far very pleased with how long the Simples have lasted.
Thanks again everyone!
