Several years ago I decided to focus on results and skip fluffy marketing. I wanted EasyCare's focus to be on 100 mile races like the 100 Tevis Cup and the Virginia City 100. Difficult, rocky, abrasive races where you can't fake success.
In the last couple months EasyCare hoof protection products have once again shined at the 100 Mile Tevis Cup and the rocky Virginia City 100. Yes, we have boots that are easy to apply for a leisurely trail ride. But our true focus is on hoof boots and EasyShoe designs for aggressive riding in extreme conditions.

Last weekend was the 51th anniversary of the Virginia City 100. The event was started in 1968 and the footing is often described as "Rocky", "Abrasive" and "Unforgiving." This is the type of 100 miles that eats a set of iron shoes in one event.
Best Condition. Christoph Schork and VA Blizzard of Oz in Easyboot Glue-Ons.
1st Place. Jacob Cukjati and Melika Kamaaj in Easyboot Glue-Ons.
2nd Place. Christoph Schork and VA Blizzard of Oz in Easyboot Glue-Ons.
3rd Place. Suzanne Huff and SD Expressa In EasyShoe Flex
4th Place. Carla Lakenbrink and GE Danex in Easyboot Glue-Ons

"Show me, don't tell me" is a motto I learned from a great friend and one that we try to emulate at EasyCare. Best Condition awards at the 2018 Tevis Cup and the Virginia City 100 go to riders in EasyShoes or Easyboots. Both events have more than 5 riders in the top ten places.

The 2018 Virginia City once again shows EasyCare results at a very difficult 100 mile event. Congrats to all riders, horses and connections. Thank you for believing in EasyCare hoof boots and EasyShoes.
