Model: BOA Horse Boots
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: I bought these boots online after measuring my horse's foot carefully. I got them for about 135.00, which is fairly reasonable in my opinion. There's a sizing chart here: http://www.easycareinc.com/Our_Boots/Boa_Horse_Boot/boaboot_sizing.aspx

Likes: I loooooove these boots. My horse has bad feet in general, so we couldn't put shoes on him or turn him out without shoes. It was a catch 22. My trainer mentioned that I should look into these boots as an alternative to shoes. They are amazing. The very first time I put them on, my horse was sound again. They have the coolest dial-twisty to get them tightened down, and they look like little Nike sneakers. They give my horse enough traction to actually jump in (although I probably wouldn't go higher than 2'6" in them), and even though my horse has shoes now, I still use them for trail rides.

Dislikes: Well, I haven't had a lot of problems with them even though I kept them on my horse 24/7 - even when he was in the pasture. One of the biggest things is that sometimes he'd pull them off and I'd have to spend hours walking up and down a field looking for them. For this reason, I spray painted them neon orange. As ghetto as it sounds, I highly recommend you do so if your horse is getting turned out with them. And also, the dial got stuck with sand once, but we sent the boot back to Easycare, and they replaced it free of charge. Lastly, I had to come out twice a day to pick my horse's feet and dry out the boots. Although they claim it has great drainage, those tiny holes in the bottom don't do much.

Quality: The quality is phenomenal. They're actually made partly of leather. I oiled and waterproofed the leather parts before putting them on my horse, and they've held up great. The bottom rubber part still looks practically new. The only thing that detracts from the appearance is the fact that they're neon orange, but that was just my choice :-D.

Summary: If your horse has tender feet, I would definitely go with these boots. Despite the cost (but hey, what isn't expensive in the horse world, especially since I'm a teenager), they are worth it. The only thing stopping me from awarding a five is the small drainage problem. That might also be my fault, though, as they're probably not meant to be on 24/7.
