I think it depends on the terrain as well as the horse. So far I don't boot the hinds. Normally the fronts are the ones that bear the most weight.

I kind of assumed that for average riding you would only boot the fronts. Thanks!

Front only for me. However friend of mine who rides in mountains put all 4. If I go to the park with minimal rocks (and no river crossing) I don't put any.

I gave up waiting on the easyboot edge boots and took look at the renagade hoof boot.. Glad I did so far.. very easy to put on and seem to work great. Maureen and I went four miles of gravel the first day and almost eight miles of gravel on day two. So here is Fras in her new Boots... Just like a girl showing off her new shoes.

Interesting. I wish I could find renegade around, so I could try them at least. I'm really surprised Edges didn't come in. I never had an issue ordering easyboots.

OH WOW, those look great! So, you like them a lot eh? Did they take much adjustment, fitting time. Did you order them via our trimmer? I've heard that's how they sell them but didn't know if she was fitting for them.

Very easy to adjust the cable system, SOOOO easy to put on. We ordered them right from the web site and used the sizing method discribed on the web site. I did call to confrim the sizing just because Fras has one giant WIDE right foot. I tried to load some better pics of them but they wouldnt take at the house so I'll try from here.. Amber hadnt tried these yet but did like the way they looked. The lady from the web site did want Amber's email so I gave it to her. We now will see how they hold up. But for temp. Use they are so much easier to put on than the epics. And the cable system is much easier to adjust.

Good news all the way around. I like the lower profile of those over the Boa kinda clunky look. I really want those Easyboot Gloves if they aren't too hard to get on and off. But, I know my Boas are going to last forever. ;) Thanks for the pics and info.. I'm off to check out the Renegade site.
