Tevis 2014 Gluing Schedule

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 (new, unused and untouched 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.
