Today was my horse’s first real experience with road riding. Lil Bit of Magic was booted 4X4 with her Easyboot Gloves. I had some trepidation about this training session in general. First, my horse has had minimal experience on the road, second the pavement was wet having just thawed from a deep freeze the past two weeks, and last I was worried about traction and safety with the boots. Another endurance rider led the way, and I was very pleased with our nine mile journey down the highway, paved, and graveled county roads. We galloped fast down a gravel road and my horse’s boots were hanging with it fine. We did not slip or slide at all. I was extremely pleased with the performance of her hoof boots. No rubs! Today was another landmark as well, we have logged 1000 training miles, mostly with a bare hoof, with Easyboot Gloves as backup, for when the rubber meets the road.
