Looks like the new EasyCare Gives Back To AERC Campaign is going to be a big hit.  The 2010 $10,000 Hoof Boot Contest is already over 6,000 miles and riders are signing up to help support AERC daily.  The contest is exploding and the majority of people haven’t even started their endurance seasons yet.   It looks like 30,000 miles and $7,500 raised for AERC is very achievable.

Over 22 riders used EasyCare hoof boots during the 25 mile and 50 mile events.  The majority of the riders used Easyboot Gloves but Easyboot Epics, Old Mac’s, Original Easyboots and Easyboot Glue-Ons were all seen on horses.  Trails were either on hard packed roads or technical rock sections.  The rock sections were some of the most technical found in an endurance event.  “It was rocky and gave hoof boots a chance to really shine.  The grip was amazing and I felt safe.”

Amy Ford (My Mom) came out and did the 50 on my horse Inferno.  She hasn’t been on a horse for months but didn’t miss a beat.  Just like the early 80’s when I used to follow her down the trail as a kid.

Mom and Inferno are shown going through the technical section on the way back

Great to see so many riders in EasyCare hoof boots and supporting the AERC.  Make sure you tell your friends about this program and lets try to raise some real money for AERC!

Easyboot Gloves after 50 miles of tough trail.  No problem!
