Here at EasyCare, it's all about the horse and their human partners. Our business is manufacturing and distributing proven equine products that will enhance performance, provide protection, increase comfort for the horse and rider, and enrich the overall human-horse experience. Throughout five thousand years of domestication, the horse has had a more significant impact on human history than any other animal. Our goal is to help make the future of the horse/rider relationship as fulfilling and exciting as the past.
What began in 1970 with the invention of the first Easyboot by Dr. Neel Glass to help a beloved family horse suffering from navicular disease, has since evolved into an entire line of hoof boots that provide an excellent alternative to iron shoes. This is due in part to the dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. We're a company that cares deeply about horses and we will continue to develop products that provide comfort, support and performance for our equine partners. We are more committed than ever to continue to create innovative hoof boot designs with features and options that will allow horse owners to provide a natural hoofcare solution for their horses.
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.
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 togehter. 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.
