I live in the desert where it is rocky, sandy, dry and dusty. I want to get as much life out of all of my EasyCare boots, so after each ride, I give each boot a 'once-over'. A good hosing is the easiest way, in my opinion, to get the job done. There are many cracks and crevices rocks, hair and debris can hide.
I always clean the hook and loop areas as well. Grass, stickers and the like can ruin the 'stick', and dried mud can cause unwanted rubs.
Here is an Easyboot Trail with a sneaky little bugger trying to hitch a ride.
I like to put on clean socks and shoes so I'm sure my horses do too! How do you care for your boots?
