Purchase: I was first introduced to Old Mac's boots at a booth in the Georgia Horse Fair in Perry, Georgia (USA). I originally purchased Old Mac's boots from an equine catalog for $145.00 three years ago. I needed them for my appaloosa gelding who had suffered from EPM, been treated and was recovering.
Likes: I absolutely believe in these boots! They are easy to get on and off yet I have used them for trail riding and never had a problem with them staying on or being uncomfortable for the horse. They are great in mud (lots of traction), creeks and water because of the drainage system they have. If the boots are fitted correctly they do not allow foreign objects such as stones or gravel to get into the boot. These boots have been very durable also. The same pair that I purchased for my EPM gelding fortunately fit my buckskin at two and three years old. Though we only get to ride about 5-6 times a month usually, this one pair of boots has performed wonderfully for three years now. I am not only about to purchase another pair (we only use them on the front) for my buckskin gelding but my husband is now going to leave the shoes off of his appaloosa and use the Old Mac's too.
Dislikes: I have not found anything that I don't like about the Old Mac's boots.
Quality: The Old Mac's boots are well constructed with durable materials and are very easy to use.
Summary: I highly recommend the Old Mac's Horse Boots for those who either need to or prefer to leave the shoes off their horses (which I believe is healthier for the horse). I realize that because we are limited in our riding time these boots have lasted a much longer period of time than they would more avid riders. However, due to the convenience, health of the horse, and the cost of having horses shod, I still believe that anyone, in any discipline of riding, could benefit from these boots. One very important note: YOU MUST KEEP YOUR HORSE'S HOOVES WELL CARED FOR AND TRIMMED CORRECTLY. The use of these boots (or any others) is not intended as a substitute for regular hoof maintennance or farrier care.
