Easyboot Trail Hoof Boots
We haven't carried a hoof boot in many years,
but Easyboot has developed a new boot that
meets many of our "must haves" in a hoof boot:
* Super easy to put on and take off
* No mallets or excessive arm strength required
* Attaches with velcro -- no buckles or cables
* Fits well throughout the trim cycle
* Fits a wide variety of shapes and sizes
* Easy to modify for a custom fit
* Stays on through different types of trail
conditions - mud, water, rocks, brush
* Drainage holes built into the sole
* Strike plate on front for added durability
* Sold individually
We really like the flexibility and versatility of
the Easyboot Trail. In addition to trail riding, the
boot can be used in the barn or paddock with
horses that need hoof protection due to
tenderfootedness for any reason. The boots are
also a great asset during barefoot conditioning (as
your horse transitions into barefootedness) and
can easily be taken along on a trail ride and used
as necessary if your horse is showing any signs of
No hoof boot does all things for all situations,
though, and the Easyboot Trail Hoof Boot is
best used for trail riding at distances of up to
25 miles per week (or approximately 1 to 1 1/2
hours/day) in mild to moderate trail conditions.
It is not recommended for endurance, long
distance riding, or aggressive competitive riding.
And like any shoe, some boots work better for
certain hooves and certain horses. Horse owners
who have tried a variety of boots will testify to
Other issues that can occur with the boots:
* The velcro becomes dirty and won't attach
securely -- this is always a problem with velcro.
If the velcro is dirty, the boots must be cleaned
after use by soaking or rinsing with a hose. We
also sell a velcro cleaning brush which is very
effective (see Boot Accessories) Of course, it is
also the velcro which makes the boot so easy to
secure around the hoof!
* Horses that overstride or overreach-- a few
customers have reported instances when a horse
overstrode and caught the back of the front boot
with his rear hoof. So if your horse is prone to
overstriding or overreaching, this may not be the
best boot choice.
These boots are backed by a 30 day money back
guarantee and a 90 day warranty against defects.
