Hoof boots for ROUND hoofs

Just want to hear the suggestions. I used Easyboot last year on her couple times, and while they were not nearly perfect they were still OK fit-wise. However I tried this week, and obviously because of her hoof shape they are not a way to go. She has round hoof. I'd even say more wide then long.

So any suggestions on what could fit her are very welcomed! :)

And Cavallo and Old Mac's don't work either - I tried them and they are too bulky. :(

Is there any particular reason why you need the boot? Is it just a precaution or are you transitioning her to barefoot? As for other options, the only one that I can think of is shoes. Sorry I couldn't be more help. ;)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Easyboot has come out with a new line/product.

Go to "boots"

I don't use boots everywhere, but some parks I ride are VERY rocky, so I always put boots there just in case. I don't want to go with shoes, because 90% time I don't need them anyway.

I got Epic last year. Doesn't work anymore (so I posted it on Sale page). It's GREAT for ovel hoofs, but not round - too loose on front.
