I have tried several boot types, but this is the one that lasts the longest and doesn't twist. The new Trail boot twists and is less durable. Pay the extra 50 bucks per pair to get boots that have lasted me 3 years so far. I am an occasional rider, but I ride some tough trails--through creeks and up mountains. Very rocky.

I find these boots to be awesome in dry and snowy weather. Even in occasional mud they always hold on. My only complaint is when one is consistently riding in muddy and wet conditions the canvas starts to stretch out of shape and once that starts happening the boot does not stay on as well.
Right now I use mine for snow riding as they have awesome cleats (a pain to put on and even more of a pain to take off) If you use these to ride in the snow you MUST also use the gaiters otherwise the snow will accumulate behiond the pastern and turn to ice and then causing frictin burns and cuts...
This will be the third winter I use these boots :)

I put these boots on my horse and went on a 3 mile trail ride, up hills, through mud, peagravel. They worked great! stayed on, no slip, and no rubs on the horse at all. Good traction. They look like a pain to put on but theyr're really easy actually and fit nice! I'm thinking of getting a pair for the back feet.

My horse had foundered in the past and was having a horrible time on the ice and hard dirt area in the pasture. We knew they boots weren't designed for pasture use but her feet were too damaged for shoeing so we thought we would test these boots out for turnout. Each morning we would put a thin layer of vet wrap over her heel bulbs to ensure they didn't get rubs. We made a small slit in the front of the vet wrap to ensure that the vet wrap wouldn't get tight and cut off circulation. She would wear the boots for 12 to 14 hours per day. We watched closely for rubs that she NEVER got. My mare loves her boots. They have held up. We don't have to use the boots very often anymore because her feet have strengthened however on bad days we still use them. They are a great quality and easy to put on. They clean easily. We don't use them when they are really muddy. She walks very well and thinks she can walk on any hard rocky surface.

I wanted to save money on horseshoeing, and purchasing these boots was my solution. The problem was that I initially purchased Easy Boot Epic with the lever type closure system. They were awful--the closure kept coming open and they were so diffucult to put on that I found I did not ride! I sold all four for 100 dollars, and put that toward the Old Macs. One more try.... they are easy to put on and very durable. One of my horses gets a rubbed spot on the same foot each time I ride, but it is not bad. I recommend these boots. I also tried to fit the new Easy Boot Gloves, but they are geared to very specific hoof shapes. Glad I didn't waste money on those!

Fit great, but kind of difficult to buckle tight.

Several of my riding friends and I use these all year around. My horses hooves are healthier per my vet and the horses accept them readily. Weve used them trails, streams, all seasons. The maker is very responsive to questions. They come with excellent directions.
