Loosie - we did boots for a while, but she kept losing them. We tried several brands, but I think we will try Renegades when we go back to boots. We always take the shoes off in wintertime, so she goes barefoot for several months and her endurance shoes are light and usually just on her fronts ... but since she has the cracks we did all four and went for the rocker shoes to keep the pressure off, but we will most likely take off her shoes when the crack grows out (should be in several weeks), and then we will try the boots again in the spring. In winter we do a lot of training miles but we don't travel, and the trails we ride are sandy and easy on feet (unless there's a weird snow event and then it is mud). What boots do you use? We've used Cavallos, Epics and BOAs and lost them (actually, the Epics broke and were a pain pain pain to put on). My mare has a very very oval hoof, so we've had some fitting problems - she has a small, oval hoof. The Cavallo Sport boots were the best fit but they were still prone to coming off in the mud or the river (we lost one in the Chatooga and one in some deep mud somewhere). I wish we could do a trial on boots! For now she's going to go through this pair of rockers until the cracks grow out and we'll see if her white line is better. I would be interested to know what boots you use. I will be checking out Renegades, but they are so expensive and I am worried they won't fit her funny shaped hoof. We've had the best luck with shoeing the front with light shoes, but we would like to keep her bare if we could. Our other horse is bare, but he's not an endurance horse and doesn't do the miles. He has boots but they are an easy fit because he has a rather normal shaped hoof.
