Easyboot Grips

  • Grips_07_031
    We rode today in the snow and mud using Easyboot Grips on both of the horses. They did so well in them, even going up and down steep hills they never slipped. It was such fun!

Just a couple thoughts.

1. Did you soak the Bares in hot water for a few minutes before you put them on?

2. Remember that different pads will change the fit and in fact move you up a size. I know that can happen with red pads and I imagine that on some horses that would happen with Domes pads.

3. Did you bevel the front of all boots to create a nice break over from 10:00-2:00? The Bares come with a modest bevel so I continue that around. It's very easy to do with a rasp.

I once fit a pair of boots that were a bit too big. In other words, they "rotated" a bit, when I fitted them to horse, no pads. I then put pads in and they didn't move, so I thought they were fine. But they were not. Once the pads were broken in a bit, by the end of the day for this foundered horse, the boots were again too loose. Having learned from this lesson, I moved the horse down a size and all went well. Except that after 10 days he didn't need them! LOL But that's another story. If only they could all rehab so nicely...

Nope hadn't tried the hot water trick. Good idea. Using the pads is what I did with my old ones to get them to fit better. And no I hadn't rasped off for a better breakover but I will. THANKS!! ALL GREAT ideas!!!

Hello, this is my first comment as Team Easyboot member, so be patient with me... :-)

Here in my neck of the woods (Brazil), it's great to know that it's not only my boots that do not always fit at first attempt!

Thanks very much for all the good tips for achieving better fit. I'll be thinking of them whenever I have future fitting problems.

Cheers,

Claudia
