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.
It all depends on the shape of your horse's hooves. When you put the boots on they should not move at all if you try to twist them. My horses could not wear the Renegades even though I like how they look. I have a pair of gloves, Gen 2, and Epics for my guys. I have been using the Epics more lately. When I put them on I use a little mallet to tap them in real good.
Sharon is RIGHT! It all depends on the shape of your horse's hooves so read reviews on what feet they fit best. You can't really go wrong with any of the boots if they fit! Oh and I have Easycare Edges for my two guys and they work WONDERFUL for me! Never had them come off, even in deep mud! Fit is everything!
Thanks again everyone for all your input. This will really help!
