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!

Thanks for the update Tami,

I have been working with the stockings as well during our conditioning rides (which are few and far between when it's 1000 degrees outside) anyway, seems to have been working fine. I'll check them when we're done and Fortune has no rubs. Will try them at our first ride back at the end of August and see how they work on a fifty. I would have to agree that doubling up would probably be wise and I do like the price. I can get 4 pairs for under a dollar at the dollar store. Compare that to $1.50+ for a roll of vet wrap. That's that much more I can spend on fuel getting to rides... LOL.

Safe Riding,
Todd

Thanks for the tip, can't wait to give it a try.

Dear Tami and Todd...I have shared your ingenious idea with an owner in Annapolis who has a gelding in Epics most of the day, rehabbing from "gosh my hoof is several feet in front of my leg-itis". TX

What type of stockings/socks are you using? I get rubs on my horse and would like to try this to help him!!!

Hi Jyl,

I was just using the cheap brand (10/$1) like Amy had told me. We used knee highs but I am now thinking that all those old hose in the drawer might have a new purpose in life.

Now that I have gone through all of the cheap ones I am upgrading to thicker/heavier brand name just so I have something to compare. Amy said she had great luck just doubling up and that will be my next trial. I will keep you posted on how it works.

It will be interesting to see now that it is getting hotter if there is any impact from heat.

Hi Tami!~ Great I'm glad they are working.. Yes mares are funny. I feel price wise to just use the cheap ones and double up as why pay more to just throw them away. I don't feel they would wash and dry well after the ride in the laundry...ha-ha
(Sorry I was late to comment.... my dial-up at home is not the best and work is keeping me buried!)
Hope to see ya at the next ride - Tour De Washoo, Washoe Valley, NV!
We'll give the hose a "run for the money" hee-hee.
I have a "newby" trying the hose and boots on a green endurance gelding. We'll see how it goes for her. She has no trouble using them on her gelding. She thinks it is a cool idea too. MUCH cheaper than vet wrap!
Amy :)
