The hardest thing on any hoof boot design is staying in place at high speed when the horse is traveling uphill. The torque and force applied to the rear boots is huge. Although the Easyboot Glove has been our best uphill boot yet, we can make it better.
I've been working on some support straps that go over the gaiter. The straps help absorb the force and really make boots stick, even in extreme uphill gallops. Jeremy Reynolds was one of the first to help test the straps and he was thrilled with the results.
One of EasyCare's early 2000 patent applications had a similar strap that attached and pivoted in the same way. This concept is still in the R&D stages but looking very good!
