My farrier applied my new Cavallo which is similar to the Easyboot Trail, and, well, for my horse no way. This is with my horse and maybe not others. The heel bulbs were too high. The boot was way too wide, overall didn't even begin to fit.

I seriously wore my first Old Macs out. 3000 trail miles logged. LOVED them. Then they came out with the G2s, which didn't fit the shape of my horse's feet AT ALL. Went to the renegades and never looked back. All wearable parts are replaceable.

Whatever you get, the bottom of the boot should be the same shape as the bottom of your horse's foot.

I would NOT get the cavallos. They are bulky and they can rub. I would stay with the easy boots....the cavallos do have "socks" to help prevent rubbing.

I have easyboot bares. I like them. I just don't use them anymore because my horse needed shoes.

I used Bares for couple years, and switched to (more advanced) Edge last year. Edge is easier to get on/off and have the tightening system (so fits wider range of hoofs). I've heard Gloves are VERY nice, but the fit must be perfect.

Tried Cavallo and hated it. I agree with Gidget: bulky and rubs. Old Macs are very bulky too (comparable to Edge or Renegades).

What about rocky parks? And horses with tender feet? I usually ride an hour at the most (as I don't have much interest in trail riding or endurance), but as long as footing is too hard I ALWAYS put boots on.

No matter how short the ride is, Sunny needs them. I can't ride her anywhere but on grass or in the arena or she limps and stumbles like she broke a leg. She is VERY tender-footed.

Imho, tender feet should be a temporary condition. I would be looking at my horse's nutrition if I could not toughen up it's feet with gradual exposure... or at the trim my farrier was employing. Certain techniques are required to successfully enable a horse to live barefoot. Even my tender QH mare was able to walk the gravel roads barefoot after a year of boots. It did take her that long to grow enough sole and callus. Until my most recent gelding (FjordX), I've always kept boots handy for trails with particularly harsh terrain, but for gravel roads I was able to toughen up their feet over time. Maximus is a stone crusher. Man, is it AWESOME to not worry about feet!

According to my farrier, Sun has great hooves. She's just tender.

She does fine on flat surfaces, but anything uneven hurts her.

Of course, if they are to toughen up, it will be a while down the road. We've only been on the trails for a little over a month, as she's just turned 4.

There is a big difference between the gravel roads and rocky terrain (with sometime rather sharp or rather big stones). I don't have issues with the 1st, but do with 2nd. My friends put boots on all 4 feet when they go for the week trail riding trip to the mountains. Like with everything it's better to be over-concerned than sorry.
