New Easyboot Trail Hoof Boots
Easycare inc. claim the new Easyboot Trail is the easiest hoof boot in the world. The Easyboot trail can be easily put on and removed by young or old hands. The variable attachment system assures the boot will fit a large variety of hoof sizes and shapes throughout the trim cycle. The boot opens up completely to easily slip on and off. The rear double Velcro attachment protects the entire hoof wall and keeps the boot firmly in place.
Set at an entry-level price point, the Easyboot Trail offers superb value for the money and is sold in singles to allow correct fit for each hoof. Price ranges from $60 to $75 per boot for the largest of the 11 sizes.
If you are a pleasure rider or trail rider, this is the boot for you. The Easyboot Trail is recommended for medium-distance riding of up to 25 miles per week (usually an average of 1 – 1 1/2 hours a day).
The Easyboot Trail also doubles as a therapy boot to help your horse recover from abscesses, hoof injuries, founder, navicular disease, punctures and sole bruises.
While it looks very similar to the Old Mac G2, the Easyboot Trail is built on the G2 chassis, but it easier to put on and remove because there is no internal webbing strap and no buckle on the outside. It is also lighter weight and will be sold in singles. It also has drainage holes in the sole and the boot fits both left and right hooves.
