Have you tried our newest Easyboot? The Easyboot Glove 50 has a lot of the same features as the Easyboot Glove Soft, along with a whole new closure system. Instead of the neoprene gaiter, the Glove 50 comes equipped with a urethane heel sling covered in neoprene.
Here are the steps you can follow when you’re ready to apply the Glove 50.
The first step in fitting any Easyboot Glove style is trying an EasyCare Fit Kit, if possible. We tried a size 1 Fit Kit on this horse and determined that a size 1 shell works best for him. Once you determine your horse’s size, you are ready to fit your Easyboot Glove 50!
Step One: Unfasten the hook-and-loop pastern strap.
Step Two: Unfasten the front strap. The front strap has buttons on each side of the boot, so be sure to unbutton both sides. Slide the straps down so that the boot is fully open.
Step Three: You are ready to apply the boot! When sliding the boot on the hoof, you should have a nice, snug fit. We recommend using the front of your body to brace the horse’s leg while you put the boot on the hoof.
Step Four: Once the boot is on the hoof, you are ready to fasten the straps. First, fasten both sides of the front strap. The buttons are snug to ensure a secure fit, so they will need to be wiggled on.
Step Five: Lastly, you will need to fasten the hook-and-loop pastern strap. This strap does not need to be extremely tight. We recommend leaving enough space so that one finger can fit between the strap and the pastern.
Now you are ready to ride! Let us know if you’ve tried the Glove 50, and how it’s worked for your horse!
