Goodbye Metal Shoes and Nails

After ten years of competing in eventing and show jumping, my 20 year old Thoroughbred refused to be retired, but needed a lighter workload. I'd never tried him barefoot before because of the amount of jumping we constantly did. Once we started trail riding, I decided to try it out with boots for the transition phase. My farrier recommended the EasyBoot Glove Back Country and I could not have been more pleased.

My horse will literally hesitate at the gate if I try to start him down the trail without his boots. Just try and stop him. In the nine months I have had him trimmed naturally, his hooves have grown a size so I am ready to order another pair of Glove Back Country boots.

They've stayed on through water, rocks, pavement, galloping, uphill and downhill, about five to ten miles per ride, three or four times per week. I love the tread on the pavement too.
