Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: I purchased these multipurpose boots because my horse's soles bruise easily when riding on gravel or rough terrain. I bought them from Jeffers Equine catalog (www.JeffersEquine.com) for $145 pair
Likes: I love the way the G2's have the breakover at the toe. The orig. Old Macs don't. My horse steps out nicely and hasn't had any bruising problems since I started using them. They stay on snugly even on very wet or muddy trails. I have really put them to the test! The criss cross velcro straps that fit under the fetlock insure the will not slip off. The fit snugly and do not rub. I do recommend using the pastern wraps which come w/ the boots. They have a hole(s) for water to drain out so the boot doesn't get water logged.
Dislikes: They take a little more time to put on than some of the others but the little extra work is worth it. The velcro and buckles help to keep the boots on snugly.
Quality: They are well made with a hard rubber protector on the front. The HEAVY duty nylon type material has held up wonderfully. The soles have good traction and is made of a heavy duty rubber.
Summary: I would highly recommend them! My horse can wear the boots when riding conditions necessitate and go barefoot the rest of the time. The cost and benefits of these boots are much better than shoeing. Plus they don't compromise the hoof wall like nailing on a shoe can.
