It's finally here! The world's easiest hoof boot; the Easyboot Trail became available through EasyCare at the end of April and the response has been nothing short of amazing. Feedback from our last full segment survey found riders still requesting a boot that is easy to apply. Say no more! Garrett Ford, President and CEO of EasyCare was quick to respond with the perfect answer.
The Easyboot Trail has many great attributes but one of its key features is the boot's ease of use. This hoof boot can be applied by virtually everyone. If you can lift a horses hoof you can apply this boot. The fastening system assures a nice fit for a broad range of hoof sizes and shapes allowing for variances throughout the trim cycle. The boot opens up completely to easily slip on and off. The double hook and loop attachment protects the entire hoof wall and keeps the boot firmly in place. Built around the Old Mac's G2 model, the Easyboot Trail can be used with the Old Mac's G2 accessories. Pastern wraps, gaiters, 6mm and 12mm comfort pads as well as the inserts all work with this boot.
The Easyboot Trail is the prefect boot for light trail riders who enjoy up to 25 miles of riding per week. It is also an ideal boot if you have hand strength issues or find it difficult to get under a horse to apply most other hoof boot styles. If you fit any of the this criteria, then you will want to take a good look at these boots.
EasyCare dealer and natural hoof care practitioner, Linda Cowles has this to say about the new Easyboot Trail:
"I just got back from selling my first pair of the Easy Care Trail boots and wanted to post a report. The mare I fit is an older Arab mare who needs occasional protection for easy trail rides. The 0 Glove was too narrow in the heel area, and the size 1 Glove just barely fit her heel immediately after a trim, but was almost 1/3 inch too long in the toe. We were going to wait for the Wide Glove, but when these Trail boots arrived, I decided to see if they would fit. We discussed other booting options out on the market but she wanted something less expensive as she doesn’t ride this mare a lot and we both suspect she’ll be fine on most trails barefoot. The size 3 Trail fit her perfectly. She’s three weeks into a trim and they fit as we’d want them to; snug but not so tight that they’ll be a problem on the next few weeks. The mare walked out great and the owner liked them too. The owner loves the Easyboot Gloves and uses them on her younger gelding but was very pleased with how easy the Trails are to get on and off as well as with the price. So we have another good booting option!"
