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.

I live in a very rocky dry area where ground temps get pretty hot. I do not trim the soles much on purpose to keep that "build up" there to protect my mare's feet from the heat and rocks. She can easily make it over rocky areas just fine...but I use boots to prevent wear.

I just got my new easyboot trails! Yey! So much easier to put on than the old macs. But, I think the old macs look "tougher" ... which isn't fair since the trails are for under 25 miles a week. I figure since the trails are relatively inexpensive, its a good way to test the "vecro-on" type boot. I couldn't wait, windy or not, so I took a short 3-4 mile ride over pretty rocky, gravely, steep terrain. That is always my concern...can they get the "feel" for the boot well enough to make it over rough, steep terrain w/o slipping, and will they stay fitted. Worked great!!!! And, there is no "handed" to them...so you don't have to look for L or R. They really are "easy". :)

Reneades ROCK!!!

These are great boots. Made in the USA (not China like most of the others) and they stay on. I have ridden through mud, streams and steep slop with them. They are so easy to put on. The company is fantastic to work with and are very responsive if you have any questions. I spent over an hour on the phone with the owner who patiently answered my questions. I highly recommend them! I don't have the studs, and have never needed them.

Also, if you don't mind the color orange. It stays much cooler on your horse's feet. Black gets really hot.

Im waiting to get my horses feet right, My farrier told me he wants to do another couple trims to adjust things before I order boots. She's going to be in renegades. I really didnt like easyboots. Didnt find them too easy.

The general consensus among the endurance crowd that arnt using glue ons are the easy boot gloves, or the renegades.
In my trail riding club, most who rarely trot the cavellos are pretty universally used. They seem to last quite some time

A friend of mine is using the Cavellos, she did not have problems loosing them or anything, but she doesn't go any faster than working trot..
They also looked really clunky and big to me, but they work for her horse, he's got really bad feet, also has low heal long toe, so he would not be a good candidate for the Renegades..
I don't have personal experience with Easyboots.. was tempted to try the Easyboot Glove / Epics..

Anybody have used them successfully?

Lots and lots of endurance riders use the gloves. Fit is critical and you need to be able to do your own touch up trims.

I see.. yes I have been wanting to try those.... my gelding will need a pair of boots too, so I am intrigued to try the Gloves, the only thing is that he's a little bit toed in on one of the feet, so the side of his foot doesn't wear evenly, I am not sure it that would be a problem.. matter of fact for him to hold any boot.

Gloves should be a perfect fit to stay on. You can order the Glove kit to see if it's a good choice for your horse.

P.S. Touch-up trims are not that big of a deal.
