I used Equi Flex shoes for about 12 years. On endurance horses, driving horses, gaited horses, and I loved them, as did my farrier. He was a basic kind of guy, did a consistently good job, no drama, and I miss him. I have dealt with countless prima dońa types who thought they knew everything, and everyone else knew nothing, but they did a crummy job.
Anyway, he could not believe how easy they were, and that sometimes I got 2 resets out of a set. They are easy on tools, and quickly roll to the horses stride. They support the bottom of the foot. They have great traction on the road. They are lightweight.
The farrier who put my last set on had never seen them, and loved them, also.
I now have everyone barefoot, doing hooves myself, so I use Renegades when I drive down the road, or ride on really Rocky trails.
