Yearling
After 5 years of being barefoot, I put shoes back on my horses last week, with the intention of leaving them on for the balance of the summer hard rides. I'll leave them on for a second reset and then return the horses to barefoot for the remaining 9-10 months of the year. I do use the Easyboot Glove if they need boots.

I just got tired of messing with the boots each ride. Torn gaiters, lost boots, broken buckles and cables on the older epics.

My horses can go anywhere for a day ride, But they often can't do 2-3-4 days of straight riding barefoot.

Have used all three of these boots. The Easy Boots are not easy at all and tore my horses hoof wall up. My money is on the Cavallo Boots, but make sure you get the fetlock wraps to go with them, they help the boot fit a bit better and also keep rubbing injury to a minimum. If you are very rocky ground they also have a padding to go in the sole, I think they are about 7 dollars a pair. My horses are all barefoot and have good feet but I use the boots often as we ride a lot of roads and the boots absorb a lot of shock to the horses legs. The boots I have have lasted for about 5 years so far. Well pleased.

What boot works for you really depends more on the shape of the particular horse's hooves than anything else.

Some hoof shapes do not work for some boots.

I had the exact opposite experience with them. Even had my farrier measure to make sure I bought the right size. They would not stay on even for quiet turn out.

My horse tripped a lot when I tried Easyboots.

I have a pair of Easyboot Gloves and Easyboot Trails. I absolutely love them both. I bought the Trails simply because I can't get the Gloves on after a few weeks into her trim cycle. Both are great boots in my opinion, but if you want something that will fit for the whole trim cycle, the Trails are the way to go! We love them and they're so easy to put on. And they stay on too. I was very impressed with the fit.

Are the Trails pretty durable? Are they fairly bulky? I have never seen them in person, but they scared me away because they look like the Old Macs, and I didn't have the best of luck with them. But if they are made out of the same material as the Easyboots, I could see them being a very good boot!

I am still hesitant to get a boot that could rub above the hairline though.

That is probably very, very true- that hoof shape determines how well the boots fit.

My Mustang doesn't particularly have the best shape for the Epics. He really squares off his toes. That's why the Gloves didn't work for him. But it seems like with the Epics we could fake it.

I was worried about the clunkiness as well. My mare is 13.1hh with tiny hooves and takes the size 00 in the gloves. I have size 0 trails for her, and honestly, I don't think they look too bulky at all (wish I had pictures to show, maybe tomorrow...) There are a few images people have uploaded to the internet if you search "easyboot trail" on google...maybe have a look there for some examples.

The sole of the boot is very similar to their other boots with the hard rubber. The nylon and velcro seems extremely sturdy. I walked, trotted, cantered, took steep hills, and rode through both grass and gravel and the boots didn't budge. I'm very impressed with them so far! And rubs were not a problem for me. The rolled leather at the top of the boot is nice and soft, and as long as you don't allow debris to build up inside, I think it should be ok.
