“ I just wanted to write and let you know how much of a fan I am of the easy boot product now. My husband, friend and I took a week long horseback riding trip to Colorado this summer. We brought lots of supplies, but purchased an easy boot for each horse in case of a lost shoe.
Sure enough, my mare lost a hind shoe 2 days into our riding. We left on the third day for an overnight trip in the wilderness. Not being very familiar with applying an easy boot, it took me a few tries to get it right but once I did it stayed on up to 11,000 feet of rough terrain.
Well, long story short, we our horses ended up breaking out of hobbles and running off into the wilderness for an extended vacation. They were recovered 24 days later and my mare still had the easy boot on! The wire was broken and one of the screws that holds the wire in place was gone, but the boot stayed on and protected her foot. She lost a couple other shoes along the way too, but not the easy boot.
I just wanted to share as I have never heard of one staying on this long, especially in the country they were in. I may not repair mine, I might just put it out at our equine facility to show owners what this product can do."
