Fully open the Cordura® cover ensuring that no Velcro® areas are touching and that the cover is pulled completely forward.
Fold the Comfort Cup Gaiter flat with the boot shell.
Facing the rear of your horse, pick up the hoof and slip it, toe first, into the boot. Place the sole of the hoof firmly down into the Easyboot Glove Back Country and pull the Comfort Cup Gaiter over the heel bulb. Place the hoof on the ground to a weight-bearing position. Lift an opposite leg to assure the hoof is fully weight bearing.
Starting at the front, push both side flaps against the hoof wall in a downward direction. The collar of the boot should be snug around the pastern bone. Secure the cover at the rear by pulling both ends firmly around the heel, overlapping the double Velcro® flaps evenly.
The Easyboot Glove Back Country is now securely in place. Confirm that the Back Country patch on the front of the boot is aligned through the center line of the hoof and pastern bone.
Easyboot Glove Back Country Fitting Tips
» Easyboot Back Country boots fit on both the left and the right hoof: they are not left/right specific.
» After the cover has been secured, ensure Velcro® flap ends are overlapped in the correct position.
» Working your horse in incorrectly sized Easyboot Back Country boots can lead to chafing. Correct size selection will ensure maximum performance and hoof boot durability.
» Give your horse time to adjust to wearing Easyboot Back Country boots. The first time you fit your horse with Easyboot Back Country boots, start by just walking out.
» Gradually increase the duration and distance of rides wearing Easyboot Back Country boots to ensure your horse becomes accustomed to the new hoofwear. Too much too soon can lead to chafing.
