I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about the ease of use of the Easyboot Glue-Ons – particularly about how easy they are to remove. So here is a real-time video of me removing one of the boots last week so you can see for yourself what is required.

These boots were glued on my horse, Redford, on February 26, 2010. He rode a 50-mile race in very sandy conditions at the Scosttdale Dynamite Dash and then he rode a second 50 one week later at the old Pueblo ride near Sonoita, AZ. They were on his feet for ten days.

There was a lot of rain in the week between the two events, and it rained constantly for two days after the second 50.

The boots were applied using Goober Glue on the sole and Vettec Adhere on the shell walls and around the top of the boot. You can see there was no debris in the boot when it came off, and his feet were in very good condition under there. The secret weapon is a medium sized flathead screwdriver.

There is no bruising and the hoof remained solid and strong.

  1. Now would/could you use those again? I use only Goober Glue and am not doing the high mileage you do (Just completed my first LD) but have used the same boots now for 3 NATRC rides, plus the Bar H LD ride over last weekend. Just wondering how well the Adhere cleans up to leave the boot usable again?

  2. That does look easier than I thought it could be. Barefoot is great, EB Gloves are great, next challenge for me will be trying the Glue-Ons. Thanks for the video. Your horse is very patient.
