Many horse lovers today are opting for drafts and draft cross breeds to satisfy their need for owning a gentle giant. These horses are being used very successfully in many different disciplines. Even for just plain pleasure trail riding they make a great mount. Mounted police units use them for street patrol and crowd control scenarios. They are the perfect match with their great temperament and size to make any unruly person move back and step out of their way. The ever popular carriage or wagon ride would not be the same without the massive pulling machine leading the way!
EasyCare has the perfect solution for your hoof booting needs with our popular Easyboot Epic and Easyboot. This line of boots will accommodate some really large hooves. We even have the Easyboot Rx therapy boot and EasySoaker boots to take care of the larger, heavy horse. We recently had some Phoenix horse owners come to visit our office in Tucson, Arizona to fit their beautiful black Percheron, Samson. We fitted Samson in our Easyboot Epic boots and they worked out perfect for him.
