The Easyboot Epic is the ideal boot for tough, aggressive conditions or for a horse that is difficult to keep booted. The cable/buckle system helps secure the boot in extreme conditions such as mud, snow and water crossings. It also helps the boot stay snug to fit a variety of hoof shapes.
If you own a pair of Easyboot Epics and are looking to adjust the cable for a snugger or looser fit, follow these steps to change the cable.
