Dealers: What Hoof Boot Style for Your Customer?

During a recent training session with an EasyCare Dealer, I found out that she had some customers that weren't keen on the Easyboot Trail. I asked what kind of riding they did and she proceeded to tell me that they ride to the hunt.

In all of our EasyCare literature, it specifically says that the Easyboot Trail is designed for the casual rider, someone that rides less than 25 miles per week.

That very same day, I had a conversation with Tami Rougeau of Three R’s Ranch (May 2014 Dealer of the Month) and she said, “I guess it’s in the rider’s perspective.” Tami brings up a very good point. To Tami, a very experienced endurance rider, riding 25 miles is a casual ride. It’s just a jaunt.

To someone like me, a Sunday afternoon, mosey on down the trail kinda person, 25 miles in one ride is a lot.

When selecting boots with your customer, it’s very important to ask questions and keep asking to determine which boot style is going to the best for their horse and their riding discipline. Do you know what style hoof boot to put on what horse for what riding discipline?

Dealer training sessions are administered by phone and usually take no longer than about 20 minutes. Please call 800-447-8836 ext 2226 if you would like to schedule an appointment.
