Comfort Pad Craziness - A Dealer's Dilemma

It has been brought to my attention by some EasyCare dealers that there is some confusion as to which Comfort Pads need to be stocked.

Let me break the Comfort Pads down and, hopefully, this will help you with filling your shelves:

  • 1) There are only two sizes that you can choose from in Comfort Pads: Small or Large. These sizes correspond to boot sizes. For sizes Pony through size 2, order Small. All other sizes, order size Large. When in doubt, order size Large because your customer can always cut them down.
  • 2) We offer 6mm (1/4 inch) or 12mm (1/2 inch) Comfort Pads. For the Easyboot Glove and Glove Back Country, you can only use 6mm Comfort Pads because Comfort Pads do affect the fit of the boot. All other boots accept 12mm Comfort Pads.
  • 3) You have a choice of three densities: Firm (Red), Medium (Black) and Soft (Green). We find that the Medium Density Comfort Pads are the best sellers.

Of course there is always an exception. For the Old Mac G2 and the Easyboot Trail boots, use the Old Mac Comfort Pads. Because these boots are generously sized, your customer can easily use the 12mm Comfort Pads. Sizes 0 through 6 will need a size small Old Mac Comfort Pad. All other sizes require a Large. Medium density Old Mac Comfort Pads are the most popular.

I have developed a chart to help with our Item Codes for Comfort Pads when placing your order. Please email me at dreiter@easycareinc.com for the chart. If you are not carrying Comfort Pads in your store, you should. Comfort Pads are a necessity for most horses and a great after sale item.
