I love my boots. The only problems that I have had keeping the boots on was that the velcro strap on one of the boots no longer stayed stuck and needed to be replaced. After I replaced it, I had not problems at all. The second time I lost the boot was on a trail ride. After two 2 years of having these boots, the cables broke. Luckly another rider found the piece I lost.
I just sent them in for repair and I am ordering another set. I love these boots for my mare as she has flat soles and cannot travel on gravel or rocks. I have been in and out of the Lake, ponds, creeks, mud, and scaled mountains with these boots and never had a problem with them.
