I have been a barefoot fan for a long as I owned horses (25 years), but shod under duress because I thought that was the only way to ride in endurance. My double Khemosabi grandson, Khemali’i (12 yrs old) has never had shoes and only this past year we have been conditioning religiously in the Easyboot Gloves w/Gators.
This last weekend we finished our first 50 mile multi-day ride at Washoe Valley with the Glue-Ons. My boyfriend Tony glued them on Thursday and we weren’t sure how they would stay on. Tony did a great job and after the first 25 mile loop I never worried about them again. Our goal is Tevis this year, so if we make it, we will be in line to have Ali’i’s boots glued on by Garrett.
Thank you EasyCare for your innovation and giving the barefoot horses a fantastic alternative for hoof protection. Life is good.
