Our horses are currently shoe-less because we didn't plan on riding while it is so hot anyway. Now, we are considering leaving them that way and purchasing hoof boots to use when we do want to ride.
I am interested in any feedback and recommendations on what brands/types you feel are best.
I did,maybe needs adjustment
I have a pair of the Edge's and the Cavello's. I love the Edges but my horses hooves are too wide so the Cavello Simple boot works amazing for my Gelding. we can to through mud and everything and they never have come off.
Renegades or the Gloves would be what I suggest you check into. Easycare also has a new boot called the Trail something or 'nother that is getting positive reviews. A correct trim is the most important thing to consider, balanced to the sole and coronary band, beveled walls and no sole removal.
Good luck and let us know what you decide on.
Thanks to all of you for the great feedback. Definitely helps to hear from those who have experienced them.
I'm kind of new to this site so I do not know many people on it. My horses are all barefoot but are on moderately soft pasture so they need boots, front and back, if I ride where it is rocky. I have four pairs of easy boots with the gaiters and they are good. But I have had problems with the gaiters tearing and the buckles breaking. So I bought some Renegades. Much better boot and easier to put on and take off. I have used them on more than ten rides and you can hardly tell they have been used. My farrier, Jim Apple, carries samples with him to fit the horse with the correct size and whether the back edge needs to be trimmed on the front boots. Either is a good choice but the Renegades are the best.
