Well... We do it together sometime.... Other than that no advice except pulling harder.

BTW, I usually turn them inner side up, put on from the wide end and then pull the other (narrow side) in opposite directions making it wider while moving the whole thing on hoof.

Soaking in warm/hot water will help.

Lol, I know! I hhaaaatte pull on bell boots so much!

I grew to like the velcro on boots, but unfortunately Nelson destroys those during turn out, so I had to go back to the dreded pull on ones. I do what Kitten stated, turn the boots inside out, and start with the wide end first and stretch the opening as much as you can while pulling with all your might. Lol.

This is how I put them on.

If it is cold where you are you might find they will go on easier if they are warm. Leaving them near the heat in the car all the way to the barn and put them inside your coat and put them on quickly then.

But they will be slippery so that might make them even more difficult to apply.

I read somewhere that spraying WD-40 on the part that's next to the hoof helps. I haven't tried it yet though (:
