Purchase: My friend purchased a pair of these for her mare and received a discount because the distributor was no longer going to carry them. I believe she paid $160. I am writing this review as her trimmer.

Likes: Her mare had not been booted before, and my friend has lower back troubles so ease of putting on and taking off was an important factor in her decision to try these. Her mare also clips her front feet with her hinds, and there is very little to "catch" on the back of these boots. For her mare, the fit was perfect, and they have stayed on through the toughest of trail conditions. In these respects the boots did what was claimed.

Dislikes: What these boots WON'T DO is PROTECT YOUR HORSE'S FEET! In the hoof trimming video with the designer, Dave, he talks about the importance of the sole and frog carrying the weight, not the hoof wall like a metal shoe. I agree with this. So why did he design a boot with no sole support? The bottom of this boot is a thick horseshoe (5mm), and it is so thin and flexible in the middle of the horseshoe tread that it can be pushed down to meet the ground with very little pressure from your fingers. Imagine what happens when your horses foot pounds into the ground. Yep, coffin bone rotation, the very thing we are trying to prevent by going barefoot.

Quality: This is a horseshoe made of some glossy malleable plastic, I can't speak to its longevity. If it doesn't fit the hoof exactly right there is no way to adjust it.

Summary: This is a "cute" boot that I cannot recommend for any purpose! I believe it will do more harm than good by giving you a false sense of security.
