I am contemplating hoof boots for my gelding. He has relatively flat feet, and he doesn't like walking on rocks at all, but I think hoof boots might be a better option because we don't always go somewhere rocky, and a lot of times we are on the beach or sandy roads. However, when we DO go on rocky trails, I know he is uncomfortable!
If anyone owns hoof boots for trail riding, please help me by answering a few questions:
How often do you use hoof boots?
What brand do you use and do you like them?
Are they easy to put on?
Do you use them for 2 or 4 feet?
Do you need to trim hooves more often if you use boots so they fit, or do they expand?
