EasyCare, Inc. is telling customers to Get a Grip!
an Easyboot Grip that is! EasyCare recently held a contest to come up with a name for their new hoof boot design. More than 900 name suggestions were submitted. The winner of the Name the Boot Contest is Helen Elsner who will receive a $100 gift certificate from EasyCare and a set of four Easyboot Grip boots.
The new Easyboot Grip hoof boot will have a more aggressive tread and is suited for use in wet conditions where a more aggressive tread pattern may be warranted including rain, mud, snow and wet grass.
The boot received a thorough test recently at the Grand Canyon XP ride where the footing became slick and unpredictable very quickly. On the first day of this five day multi-day ride it poured rain so hard that horses, riders, and the ground beneath them became completely saturated. Extreme conditions continued when later in the week it began to snow and temperatures dropped well below freezing. Endurance riders using the boots reported a solid ride and said their horses strode out confidently with the Easyboot Grips in the mud, snow, puddles, and wet grass.
The new boot is expected to be available at the beginning of 2007. EasyCare cautions that the Easyboot Grip was designed for use in wet conditions and is more likely to wear faster if used in dry or hard surface conditions. While this boot will provide better traction in wet conditions than some other types of hoof protection, it will not keep horses from slipping in some situations and riders should use extreme caution when riding on those kinds of surfaces.
EasyCare, Inc. has been a leader in the hoof boot industry for years, beginning with the invention of the Easyboot back in the early 70ís. Since then, the need for boots has grown tremendously as more and more horse owners see the healthy advantages of pulling shoes and switching to natural hoof care. EasyCare is excited about being part of this growing trend.
