Purchase: Two years ago during a snowy winter day my horse slipped on the snow and fell on me pinning my leg under him. Since then I have been reluctant to ride in the winter. Living in Michigan, "winter" is about 5 months, which is a LONG time to not ride. So, in order to keep my winter riding up, I decided to purchase hoof boots with the ice studs. After extensive research I started with the Gloves, which were just "OK". Then I ordered the Epics and after 1 1/2 hrs of trying to get them on the horse I knew I would not use them. Back they went. So, I ordered the Renegade's. I ordered them direct from the company, and had them in 6 days. Yes they are a little pricey: $338.00 set of 4, plus $49.90 extra for the studs. (Which came installed on the boots) Total $387.90. Right out of the box I knew I would like them.
Likes: SUPER EASY TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF! Very well made, stayed on even through 1 1/2 foot of crusty snow. My mare never even acted like she had anything on her feet. This tells me they were comfortable for her. NO SLIPPING on snow covered icy roads. I put all four boots on my mare the first time in about 15-20 minutes. Removed them in minutes.
Quality: Boots are made very well. Great padding everywhere there needs to be. Both horse friendly and human friendly. Lots of colors to choose from.
Summary: Customer service is FANTASTIC. As far as being pricey - Well, I guess my safety is worth it. If my horse slips and falls on me and I'm unable to work - suddenly $387 doesn't seem so much. Peace of mind and rider safety is so worth it! I'm back to enjoying riding my mare through the long Michigan winters.
