I am glad I found this thread. I started a thread sometime asking if anyone had ever tried old macs and Back Country Easyboots...no response. :(
I like old macs, a lot...and the trails I ride on are a lot rougher than I wish they were...they change drastically from all potato size rocks, to dirt, to pea sized gravel, to large rock, etc., and put wear on a shoe. Old Macs hold up to it - well. BUT, they are a bear to put on - I mean, shwew!!! And, you have to train each horse to the macs on rocky terrain. Some just get it "right off", and adjust having "tennis shoes" on whilst going downhill on gravel, but some...not so much and will get ahead of themselves and slide. I imagine this is also true of the easyboots ??
So, has anyone tried the Back country ones? I love the idea they are easier to get on!!!!!
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
