Hoof boots?
Anybody here use hoof boots instead of shoes? I'm looking for reviews on the available boots out there. Which ones do you and your horse like best and why? Thanks!

I use Easy boot epics on one of my horses. I like them a lot. There are different boots for different purposes.

I used Epics (didn't like them much because of the wires), Bares, and Edge currently (improved version of Bares) by Easy Boots. I didn't like Old Macs and Cavallos at all.

If you decide on boots make sure the chosen brand will fit your horse's hoofs. :)

Has anybody tried the new Easy boot Trail?

Renegade hoof boots. Now that I've been turned on them, I won't use anything else. They are $$, but well worth every cent.

I haven't used the trail but it's basically an improved old mac g2. I have used the old mac g2 they are nice, but I think the best is the glove boot as long as they're a good fit.

^^ I agree with the glove one. Unfortunately it should be a perfect fit or it may come off (which was not a case for my horse).

I use the easy boot epics, they can be difficult to put on tho, takes some learning and patients from you and your horse the first few uses lol

^^ Heck, I have to video tape how I do it. I used Bares and Edges and it take me no time to put them on. I'm always wondering why people complain about it.

I recommend the Cavallo boots to anyone who is looking for hoof boots. I have tried almost all of the boots on the market and I find the Cavallos by far the easiest to put on and take off, the most secure, and the most comfortable for my horses. We ride through alot of mud and water and very rocky terrain and I have never had boot come off or rub my horse which is the biggest problem with other brands I have tried. There isn't anything I haven't done in these boots and I have at least one pair for all of my horses! If you are new to boots their customer service is extremely helpful so I would call or email them with your measurements and they can recommend the best boot for your horse.
