Jocelyn Dean of Stafford, England, sent in some great pictures and a testimonial about using the EasyCare Glove horse boots on her Standardbred mare.
Jocelyn writes: I own a 13 year old standardbred mare (Kristal) who, up until eleven months ago was shod and I never thought anything of it. Horses wear metal shoes, right? Wrong!
She developed a strange twist in one of her hind hooves which made me start to question what was going on. To cut a long story short, I changed farriers and did lots of research which ended up in my decision to remove my horse’s shoes and go barefoot.
Kristal in her EasyCare Gloves
Well, I bought four Easyboot Gloves in the hope they would help and help they did. We never had to give up riding. I live next to a place called Cannock Chase which is fabulous riding, if a little stoney, and my horse’s feet kept improving beyond all recognition. Her twisted back foot untwisted and all four hooves have become feet to be proud of. We couldn’t have done it without the Easyboot Gloves. We now compete in Endurance up to 25 miles (and win) and always use our Gloves to compete in. I never have to worry as I know my horses feet are protected, functioning naturally and my boots stay put!

We have also competed cross country/hunter trials with our Gloves on with no problems at all. Great results with jumping in well fitted Glove boots.
EasyCare Office Manager
As the office manager, I make sure the general operations of the organization run smoothly and seamlessly from A to Z. I have been on the EasyCare team since 2001 and have first hand product knowledge as my horses are barefoot and booted.
