Young Riders

EasyCare has enhanced its participation at the Western States Trail Ride for 2013. Easyboot is the official hoof boot of Tevis 2013, and EasyCare is proud to sponsor the 2013 Junior Rider Program.

EasyCare will pay the entry fee for up to ten junior riders who sign up for Tevis. If you're between the ages of 13 and 18 and you've been dreaming of riding Tevis, EasyCare has you covered.

Gluing Hoof Boots

If you're riding Tevis and you would like complimentary gluing or boot fitting support from an EasyCare representative, our gluing schedule for ride week is listed below. Easyboot Glue-Ons cleaned up at Tevis in 2012:

  1. Six of the top ten horses at Tevis used Easyboots.
  2. 34% of the finishing horses were in Easyboots.The Tevis Cup (first place) was won by Garrett Ford and The Fury in a completion time of 14:50.
  3. The Haggin Cup (Best Condition) was won by Rusty Toth and Stoner in a completion time of 15:05.
  4. The first four horses in the top ten were in Easyboots.
  5. Easybooted horses boasted a 69% completion rate, compared to a 41% non-Easybooted horse completion rate.
  6. This is the second year in a row for the first place Tevis horse to be wearing Easyboots.
  7. This is the third year in a row for the Haggin Cup horse to be wearing Easyboots.
  8. 23% of the starting horses were in Easyboots.

To book an appointment, please call any of our Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-447-8836.

Please note the following five items:

  1. Location - there are two different locations, depending on the day. When setting up your appointment, please be sure clarify the location with the CSR.
  2. There will be no gluing whatsoever on Friday because it is too close to the race day, and the risk of losing boots increases significantly.
  3. EasyCare representatives will provide the gluing services at no cost. However, each rider is required to provide the boots and materials needed (unused Easyboot Glue-On shells; 1 tube of Adhere; Adhere Tips; 1 tube of Sikaflex).
  4. Please bring a horse that has been trimmed within the previous five days. Any horses that need a trim will be subject to trimming fees assessed by a professional hoof care practitioner.
  5. We request that all riders should have successfully completed at least one race in Easyboot Glue-Ons before attempting Tevis in Glue-Ons.

I am responsible for the marketing and branding of the EasyCare product line. I believe there is a great deal to be gained from the strategy of using booted protection for horses, no matter what the job you have for your equine partner.
