Has anyone used the EasyBoot Bare? If so, how did you like them?
Thanks.

I have them and really like them. My mare has excellent hard hooves, but they can get worn down from to much rocky riding. I use the easy boots whenever we go on a very rocky trail or she gets to where shes getting to much wear. I have been through the old easy boots and never liked them. Tried swiss boots and don't have anything good to say about those either. If you do try the bare, get one or two extra gaiters. They will tear before the boots are worn out. My mare stepped on the back of her boot while playing in water and tore the gaiter. Wish I had an extra one on the trail so think of bringing one along. If she had soft hooves or bruised easily we would have been in trouble because the boots are hard to keep on without that gaiter. If your horse over reaches you may have to use bell boots also to save the gaiter from getting beaten up. I also got the tapers, but it is not necessary to get them. Just cut off the straps and file down the piece that holds the strap to the boot so it tapers off toward the back (that is all the tapers are) You will need to have them fit right and possibly file your horses hooves periodically between farrier visits to keep the boot from being to tight and hard to get on. Very easy to do. Just keep a file in your kit and have your farrier show you the right way if you are not familiar with doing it.

Thanks guys. My mare's back hooves are all beat up, in a very sorry state due to not being cared for for 5 years. ( I got -rescued- her a month ago) I put shoes on front but the back hooves need to grow and get strong before we attempt to put shoes on them. She's very ouchy on her back feet. I tried a set of EasyBoots, lost them within 2 rides (ouchy for me in the pocket!) Someone suggested Davis Boots but they just twisted, better for applying medication or soaking. Thats why I wondered if the EasyBoot Bare might be better suited for her.

I use Old Macs, also available from the Easy Boot company. I haven't had one fall off yet, and they don't seem to bother my mare.

I use The Simple Boot (http://www.simpleboot.com) by Cavallo, very similar to Old Macs. They work well when my horse is barefoot. My horse is flat footed and I need them when riding on rocky or gravel roads, when barefoot.
