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!

First see if the boots were an older version that had cleats and a plastic cover. If so, remove the plastic cover and flatten the teeth down. Then apply duct tape over the sides of the boot. That helps it to go on and off, plus smooths everything out.

If you are talking about the front of the hoof wall and not the sides where the cleats could be, here is one possible explanation. When I have had people say the hoof wall dented in from any boot it is just that it was wet out or they rode through water and the periople swelled up above the boot, making it appear to have an indentation in the wall. The periople is a film that comes down from the coronary band covering the very top part of the hoof wall. If they aren't using pads and the top of the boot is sitting to close to the coronary band the rubber edge could wear into this periople. It's highly unlikely that rubber would wear into hoof wall.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE RESPONSE--ON THE BARES --THEY CAUSED A CREASE ON THE FRONT HOOF WALL--I CHECKED THIS OUT-SEEMS THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE THE HOOF DOWN INSIDE HEEL STRAP--FORCING THE HOOF IN DOWNWARD POSITION AND ALSO TIGHTENING THE BOOT TOO TIGHT FOR THE FIRST RIDE--ADDING A VERY WET RIDE ON TOP OF IT--THEY WERE FIRST TIMERS BUT THEY WILL LEARN
