Purchase: The boots were purchased thru the web site www.easycareinc.com The boots were $140 and the gaiters were $18. Shipping was quick, and they stayed in contact with me when I had a question. The boots were purchased after having the horses hooves and pasterns x-rayed because of being short strided. X-rays showed bone deterioration on tip of one P3 and a spur on the tip of the other P3, plus being thin soled. Vet explained this was probably due to an injury at a young age, other than that, no explanation, just happens. I wanted to keep all the circulation in the hooves that is possible, so shoeing isn't an option because of the constriction it places on the hooves. So I'm trying the boots.
Likes: I hadn't had the opportunity to practice with any kind of horse boot before purchasing these, so I was a little apprehensive. It was unwarranted as the boots went on easily the first time I put them on the horse. Because of the price and wanting to get the size right the first time, I had my farrier help me measure his hooves right after he trimmed him, but I realized his help wasn't really necessary, but appreciated, it was so easy. I lunged the horse in the boots prior to tacking up and he was fine in them. I rode for about two hours the first time and he acted like he was born in them.
Dislikes: I think the gaiters should be sold with the boots, as I can't imagine using one without the other
Quality: Everything is good quality about this boot. I had done my homework before ordering these boots, and I'm not disappointed.
Summary: I am so happy with the boot, I have a horse who is not afraid to go into an extended trot because of pain now. We practice dressage and the boots work wonderfully with this discipline, as I would think they would with about any.
