Boa and Gaitors
Horse Boots and Wraps
Model: Boa and Gaitors
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: Ordered from the easycare on internet. Not sure of the price i paid three years ago. But paid the full price it was offered at that time. My estimated guess would be at least $120.00
Likes: The ease of use and they have held up very well.
Dislikes: Gaitors are hard to keep straight and not be crooked when you use them. And would like it better if the caps were attached to boots so you would not have to worry about keeping up with them, when taking on and off. I have not lost them, yet, but can see how it would be easy to do so.
Quality: These boots have held up very well, have had no problems with them since I bought them 3 years ago and have used them on very rocky trails, through mud and water and they have stayed on and have had absolutely no problem with them at all, still look like new.
Summary: I needed a boot for my horse that had tenderfoot Quarter horse for trail riding. I had surgery and needed one that would be very easy to apply with little upper arm strength involved.
I ordered the gaitors as well, because had read where there has been some rubbing problems without the gaitors.
I have used the boot with and without the gaitors. And have had no problems with rubbing at all, they are very easy to put on and take off. Have stayed on horse through all kinds of terrain and never have had a problem. I ordered through the company over the internet and measured just as they had suggested on website and boots fit like a glove.
The gaitors and there ease of use, are the only complaint I would have. They are difficult to apply. I will get them in the boot and have them straight but by the time I get them on the horse, they are always crooked. Might be easier to just wrap some vet wrap around the hoof instead, which I have used and had no problem with rubbing. But then I tried them without gaitors and still had no problem with rubbing on my horse. I also like the fact that these boots are great to use for riding on pavement, do not have to worry about horse slipping and falling down. I bought the boots for front hooves only and allow her to be barefoot on the back and have had no problems at all this way. She had stayed sound for all the days I have trail ridden and when I did not have these boots she was very tender by the second day of riding. These boots have well paid for theirselves, since I would have had to have shoes put on her and then had them reset every 4 to 6 weeks otherwise.
I am very happy with these boots for what i purchased them for.
I gave them a 4 only because of the gaitors being a bit difficult.
