The Easyboot Edge is ready to rock! I did a ride tonight in the Edge and Glove. The Edge has had a couple last tweaks and it is now ready for release.
I really like the Edge and especially like the fact that we have eliminated cables and buckles in this hoof boot design. In the last year of testing the Edge, I have yet to have the worm clamp at the front of the Edge fail. The improved tongue system has new materials and excellent shock absorption qualities.
I've had many questions in the last couple weeks regarding what boot to choose. "EasyCare has several great looking new boots. Why would I choose an Epic or Edge over a Glove?" "Why would I use the Glue-On instead of the Glove?" These are great questions and ones that I'll answer below.
I believe the Easyboot Glove is our best boot for several reasons. It's close fitting, lightweight, low profile and the sleekest non glue-on hoof boot available. In addition it's our easiest boot to apply and remove. Best of all it has an affordable MSRP of $56.00. If your horse has a foot that fits into the Glove these are the boots I recommend. Your first step should be to order an EasyCare Fit Kit. If you have success with the Fit Kit order the Easyboot Glove.
If your horse is not a candidate for the Easyboot Glove based on the results of the Fit Kit I would recommend either the Epic, Edge, or Bare. The Epic, Edge, and Bare are more adjustable than the Glove and can accommodate feet with more challenging hoof shapes and angles. The Epic is our most tested product and has tens of thousands of successful miles. The Epic has been and will continue to be one of best selling products because it works so well. The Bare is also tested but a boot suited to more advanced users. The Edge is probably the easiest to apply and I believe will have similar results to the Epic.
The Easyboot Glue-On is a great boot for the multi-day endurance riders and 100 mile events. It's also great for people who want to put boots on for many days at a time and not mess with daily application and removal. Great for back country pack trips. In addition the Easyboot Glue-On has many therapy applications and can be used with impression material for extended periods. Because it's very difficult to see if a horse is even wearing the Easyboot Glue-On it's perfect for competive trail organizations with rules that prohibit boots that extend above the hairline. Worried about doing dressage in boots, you can't even see these boots and your horse will never move better.
