Our History

Founded in 1970, EasyCare pioneered the first hoof boot marketed to the equine industry. To help reduce pain for a beloved family horse suffering from navicular disease, Dr. Neel Glass designed a comfortable, padded shoe as an alternative to iron shoes. That first “Easyboot” launched a new category in the industry known as the “hoof boot,” with EasyCare setting the pace through an innovative array of products that has expanded into hoof boots and urethane horse shoes for every situation.

 

Our Mission, Vision and Values

The mission of our team is to improve the well-being of horses by providing the equestrian community with superior service, education and innovative equine products.

Our vision is to lead the way - through relationships and innovative behavior - to an equine industry revolution in hoof care practice.

Our values: Relationships are the life blood of our business. We approach each interaction with empathy and respect. We act as a corporate family that takes ownership of our life together. Education for our customers and selves empowers our community. We build our culture of integrity through honesty, doing what we say and consistency in our actions. Having the courage to be innovative moves the needle in our personal and professional lives. Life is short - have fun! We cultivate an intense culture but fight against a tense culture.

 

Our Commitment

Now, almost 50 years later, our commitment to innovation is stronger than ever. As a company made up of horsemen and horsewomen, we care deeply about our horses and believe in the importance of flexible hoof care solutions that promote the health of a barefoot hoof and the optimum function of the 5 Hearts. It is important to us that we do our part in helping our horses enjoy longer athletic careers.

 

Our Product Development

To provide the ultimate comfort and reliable performance in hoof protection, we strive to continually develop products that use the best materials we can find, leverage the latest technology and meet the highest level of manufacturing standards.

With a stable of roughly 70 horses, we personally conduct our research and development on real hooves under real conditions. It is not uncommon for our team to test out a boot by heading out for a long weekend ride up in the Colorado mountains or down to one of our favorite arroyos in New Mexico.

When you put an EasyCare boot or shoe on your horse, you can trust that the design has been thoroughly field-tested on difficult terrain, during challenging weather conditions, and at worldwide endurance events and flat track racing.

 

Our Guarantee

We believe in our hoof boots and shoes and want you to believe in them, too. That is why we back our products with the best guarantee in the industry - the EasyCare Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with your product for any reason, we will gladly credit back the purchase price (excluding shipping and handling) within 45 days of purchase.
