Manufacturer: Renegade
Model: Hoof Boots
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: I researched all of the available hoof boots on the market before deciding on the Renegades. I fired my traditional farrier after he lamed my horse 3 consecutive times after trimming. I then extensively researched the natural trimmers in the area. My meeting with him included asking him about the Renegades. He just so happened to be a dealer and he measured my horse and sold me a pair of 2wides for 160.00.

Likes: The Renegades are very user friendly and durable. They allow a MORE CUSTOM FIT compared to the Boa and Old Mac style. My TB horse has rather large wide feet and this factor made it difficult to find a boot that would work for him. Most of the boots on the market require a foot that is more narrow (ovoid as opposed to round). If the width of the hoof is greater than (or equal to) the length of the hoof then the Boa and Easy Boots will not fit. The Renegades were first donned by my hoof trimmer. I immediately removed them so I could don them myself with his stand-by assistance. It was very easy and quick. I was delighted because I can be a bit technologically challenged and these were super easy. I decided to don them again the following day for my dressage lesson in the arena. The manufacturer recommends them to be applied for short periods of time initially so that the horse can acclimate and the owner can evaluate the fit. He walked on as if nothing foreign was on him. My rather traditional dressage trainer was very delighted that the horse trotted with lovely movement in them. I planned to remove them 20 minutes into the ride but it just did not seem necessary. The canter was just as uneventful. I decided to take my horse over a small cross-rail and again, NO PROBLEM.

Dislikes: I cannot identify a negative quality in these boots. One may complain about the cost but the advantage to barefoot horses are numerous. Why put steel shoes on a horse when most of the time he is ridden in the arena? The cost of my barefoot trim is 40 dollars. The cost of shoes is at least 65 dollars for front shoes. This cost is recovered in a few short months. Cost is not the reason that I chose barefoot. Think about the simple physics equation: Pressure equals force over area. Steel shoes magnify the impact of every step the horse takes and resonates this force up the legs which stresses the ligaments, tendons, and bones. Another way one can understand this concept is if you imagine walking outside on your lawn after a rain shower with a pair of 3 inch stilettos. Your skinny heel will sink into the ground and become buried due to the extreme pressure exerted. Now try this with a pair of riding boots. Your heel mark will barely imprint because the load is distributed throughout the larger surface area.

Quality: The construction and quality is top-notch. My horse ran through a creek in these and they did not rotate, rub, or fall off. I also jumped a few logs and ran on some dewy grass and my horse never slipped. At the end of the ride, my horse stood quietly while they were removed.

Summary: I am very happy to have these boots for rough terrain. I would not hesitate to recommend these boots.
