Have you tried the studded easy boots as well? Any comparisons?I have a full set of four with studs. I bought them for winter and wet weather riding because my horse is barefoot and has no traction in those conditions. They are pretty awesome boots!

She contacted the company and they sent her a new pair of the Vipers to try. She's found those ones cut open/rubbed the heels enough to cause them to bleed. At first she thought it was just her one horse who's still growing out a good hoof, but she tried them on her other horse who has great feet and the same thing happened
Rubbing happens if boots arent fitted right they dont rub if they fit right. Easyboot Epics dont hold up to hard riding i trashed a pair in 3 weeks this summer.
I know someone who uses renegades and loves them theyv had their boots for 3 years now, no problems with them.
IME they do 'hold up' very well generally. I know of many egs where they're very 'well used', including by heavy duty(miles as well as terrain-wise) trail riders & endurance riders, and are indeed strong boots that stand up to a lot. I think they're about the best in this regard.Easyboot Epics dont hold up to hard riding i trashed a pair in 3 weeks this summer.
I can actually believe it is possible to trash Easyboot Epics in 3 weeks. I have had some Easyboots that I wonder if they changed the recipe of the plastic or something....like a few hard rides and I have small chunks missing from boots. Some will wear for years and years and years, and some have chunks missing after a few rides......chunks that go all the way through the toe of the boot. Either the trails were exceptionally horrible or the plastic on those particular boots was softer for some reason.IME they do 'hold up' very well generally.

That's interesting because I usually have to rasp all the time with Easyboots to keep them fitting. Sigh! I like using hoof boots but none it seems are the "perfect" boot.I have been using Easyboots on one of our horses for the last six months or so. We got the Epics and they have worked out great. We bought them all used to keep the cost down and since we don't do any hard riding them have been perfect.
I was originally looking into Renegades but a friend that sells them actually steered me away from them. She said that to get the best performance from them you have to trim about every two weeks. I wasn't about to do that so I went for the Easyboots. We trim every 8-10 weeks with them and it isn't a problem.
