My Arabian horse, Solito ,and I competed at our first ever competitive trail ride in May 2014 at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Co. We had only been together about 6 months so we were both nervous! The night before the ride it stormed very badly at camp with lightning and heavy rain and flash flooding in the area. The next morning we headed out with Solito wearing his Easyboot Epics not sure what to expect on the trail. We had multiple creek crossings ( see photo of first creek crossing with steep bank) with moving water and steep banks and challenging rocky ascents and descents as well as a very deep long muddy section with all horses struggling through hock deep sucky mud. Some horses at the event lost shoes and fell but Solito and the two friends horses I rode with did great! We rode about 16 miles the first day and about 15 miles on the second day of the event. No boots came off of our horses and my horse was sound and had high scores at all P/R and vet checks and his feet looked great! Solito won first in the novice lightweight division and I was amazed and proud! I have since bought him the Easyboot Gloves and they are easy to put on and take off and stay on great. He seems to like them.
Thank you EasyCare! Jill and Solito
