EasyBoot Bare Boots
Tuesday, 29 January 2008

Have just started (October 2007) trialing these out with Tommy (I had used the Old Mac to transition Magpie.)  They are a not as easy to get on as the Old Macs but once on he seems quite comfortable and he's got smaller feet than Magpie being a thoroughbred.

Was only using them on the front feet  but he has developed lamesness on the back feet.

Below is some info on the Bare boot:    

Mimicking the Natural Hoof:

The Bare has been a huge success in 2006. Although it is a little harder to apply than the standard Easyboot Epic, the Bare provides a simple, close-fitting boot that constantly adjusts to the hoof. The boot is designed to stretch and flex, mimicking the movements of the naturally bare hoof. Check out the 2007 model with the lower profile comfort strap, thicker bungee and improved rivets.

Rising to the challenge, the Bare was used in 2006 by two horse and rider teams to successfully complete the 400KM Shazada endurance event in Australia. In addition, it has successfully completed several 100 mile and 250 mile endurance events in extreme conditions on barefoot horses. Not only did the Bare boots stay in place, they did not rub, twist or turn. The results are even more impressive considering many of the test miles were completed in deep, boot-sucking mud and snow.
