I would like to purchase some Easyboots for my 9-year-old trail horse. I’m wondering about the differences between the Easyboot Trail and the Easyboot Back Country. I ride in some rocky, rough terrain in Montana. I ride a Missouri Fox Trotter, and we typically cover a lot of miles. I’m curious about the Comfort Cup Gaiter that comes with the Easyboot Back Country. Thanks.
Both the Easyboot Back Country and the Easyboot Trail are good for trail riding. The Back Country was designed to be the next step up from the Trail. It’s a more rugged, more secure boot. The Back Country was designed to be used in rougher conditions and to cover more miles (roughly 50 per week, while the Trail is best for roughly 25 miles per week).
The Easyboot Back Country is designed to fit a little more snug than the Trail. The Comfort Gup Gaiter cups and protects the back of the pastern and helps make the boot more comfortable for more mileage.
The Back Country is very popular for our customers with gaited horses because it is such a secure fit that it can handle that extra action.
