Easyboot Edge Frequently Asked Questions
Q How do I measure?
A Click here for measuring information.
Q If my horse wears a size 1 Easyboot, Epic, Bare or Grip what is the comparable size?
A The sizing for the Edge is the same as the boots above. It is always a good idea to remeasure before buying new boots.
Q In comparison to other boots in your line, how easy is this boot to get on and off?
A We believe this is one of the easiest boots in our line to apply and remove. The worm clamp allows the boot to open wider, and it is easy to adjust. Click here for application videos and instructions.
Q Can I use these boots for both short and long distances?
A Yes. This boot has been tested over various terrain for both short distances and endurance rides.
Q Can the worm clamp be replaced if something happens to it?
A Yes, we have replacement parts available. Click here for Edge Accessories.
Q What if I loose the key? Is there something else I can use?
A Yes, you can use a penny or flat head screwdriver to tighten the worm clamp. We do not recommend the use of a power tool as the boot could be easily over-tightened. You can also purchase a replacement EasyKey here.
Q How tight should the boot be?
A Using the EasyKey or a manual screwdriver, you should not be able to over-tighten the boot by hand. The boot should be very snug and you should not be able to insert a hoof pick between it and the hoof. The tongue of the boot is padded for extra comfort when the boot is applied.
Q What types of feet do not fit well into the boot?
A Hooves that have excessive flare, are clubbed or that have abnormalities in the hoof wall do not fit well into this boot.
Q How should the gaiter fit?
A The gaiter should fit low and tight around the pastern. The gaiters are made out of a four-way stretch material and it is hard to get them too tight. A tight gaiter will not move around on the pastern and will not chafe.
