I have used the Easy boot Epic on my mare forever!!! I love these boots, and have never had a problem with them:):) THey have never come off, and I I can't say enough great things about them. We ride all terrains from muddy to rocky, and everything in between.
My aunt has some of the Renegades for her TWH. THey had never come off before, but the last ride we took one came off 3 times.

So...I would say ask some folks in your area what they have had the best luck with in the terrain in your area, and weigh your options. And go from there:)

Renegades 4 Sure!

LOVE. MY. RENEGADES.

Hundreds of miles of sharp, slippery, rocky, near-vertical trails. They are still going. They are relatively easy to repair, and Renegade sells replacement parts. I go over mine and replace worn velcro and cables on occasion. They are easy to get on and off and my guys never even notice them.

I will say that your horse's feet will toughen over time. One thing you can do is to add a bed of pea gravel to an area where she stands frequently. This will help stimulate the sole to thicken and they also like to lay down on it as it conforms to their body shape. Also, the addition of a supplement high in biotin will help with hoof growth. If you can put her in a hard surfaced paddock for a while every day that may help too. My horses were SUPER tender when I moved them from Louisiana (Rocks? What are rocks?) to Arkansas (Holy cow mom! What are these big hard things sticking out of the ground?) I had to use boots EVERY time I rode. Now, they have rock crushers, just from living on the rocky, hard ground. I trim their hooves myself, and I rarely take any sole off. May have your farrier leave a bit more hoof on her too, not take so much sole off when she is trimmed.

I have been using Easyboot BackCountry boots since March. I am looking at moving to Renegades because of some issues I am having with the Backcountrys. I have experienced bruising of the outer hoof wall due to a piece of gravel being stuck in the treads and I have had consistent issues with the back of the boot holding gravel and plant material in the pastern area.

I don't have the ability to do inbetween trims and didn't realize that the boots have to be fit perfectly to work correctly. I'm hoping that the Renegades work better.
