Description

Features

  • Revolutionary new boot combining the best of the two top selling hoof boots, the Easyboot trail and the Easyboot Glove.
  • Slim, anatomical fit for ultimate comfort and style keeps this (correctly fitting) hoof boot on in even the deepest mud, water or sand
  • Tough cordura and neoprene upper with a soft heel cup to help prevent rubbing and keep debris out of the boot
  • Made from 3 components allowing the parts to be replaced instead of a whole new boot
  • Close fitting double Velcro front wraps securely around the top of the hoof holding the glove shell in place, ideal for horses with a wide or large heel that previously found gloves would pop off under stress

Available in 18 sizes, available in ½ sizes (00 - 4 regular, 0-3 wide) • Sold Individually

Suitable for: Horses with most hoof shapes including wider than long hooves through to longer than wide hooves. Designed for leisure riding, but already proving suitable on some horses (where a good fit is achieved and the horse not prone to rubbing) for longer distances such as endurance or all day rides but equally suitable for any horse whose measurements fit the size chart correctly for day to day riding, schooling and competition (where permitted). A brilliant all round boot offering the lightness of the glove but the security of a boot fitting over the whole hoof.

Not suitable for: Horses with excessively long hooves or horses requiring thick pads for conditioning or rehabilitation as the back country can only be used with 6mm pads.

 

 

 

 

 

The Easyboot Glove Back Country is the ground breaking new boot that takes the very best from the top selling hoof boots; Easyboot Trail and Easyboot Glove to make a 'super hoof boot' in the form of the Easyboot Backcountry. The Easyboot Back Country is made in 3 parts, which can all be replaced individually if required making the Back Country hoof boot great value too as you never need replace the whole boot! The foot part of this new Easycare hoof boot is a glove shell which gives the form fitting, quick breakover and superb traction of the ever popular Easyboot glove. The upper of the back country consists of two pieces, the neoprene heel cup which is very soft and protects the heels area and back of the pastern from any rubbing and the front cordura covered neoprene portion that wraps around the top of the hoof to hold the boot securely in place. The end result is a very sleek boot with all the competitive advantages of the form fitting glove, but the security of the Easyboot trail.

Sizing of the Easyboot Glove Back Country:

The size you need depends on your trimming regime, we advise a regular 2-4 week trim for the best performance. Barefoot horses trimmed regularly (every 2-4 weeks or self wear) If you are already using the Easyboot gloves with a power strap in place, you should find the same size Easyboot Back Country will fit. If you use Easyboot gloves without a powerstrap and find them a very tight fit, you may find you need to go up 1/2 a size as the front of the boot is as if there is a power strap fitted. If you have never used Gloves before, we recommend ideally trying the glove fitkit to determine size, or if working from measurements alone as long as they fall within the same size they are usually true to size for the measurements (unlike gloves where you usually go down 1/2 size). The fitkit will however allow you to see if the shell shape is right for your horses hoof angle etc so if in doubt hire a fitkit first! Horses trimmed every 6 weeks: Often need to go up 1/2 size Horses trimmed every 8 weeks: Often need to go up 1 size but may be better suited to an Easyboot Trail.

The Easyboot Glove Backcoutry should fit heels that are bulkier as the cordura is longer than on the Easyboot Trail/ Old Mac G2 hoof boots.

How to fit the Easyboot Back Coutry Hoof Boots: These are a very quick and easy hoof boot that can be fitted in seconds, you may be best to use a rubber mallet if you find them tight to tap them on at the toe- this is still far less concussion that a farrier nailing a shoe on or a horse taking a step at speed on a hard surface so don't worry! 1. Open the hook and loop in back and cross into a 'V' in the front. 2. Fold the Comfort Cup back until it's flush with the rear of the boot. 3. Insert hoof (may have to use a rubber mallet) 4. When the boot is on: Pull comfort cup heel up making sure that all the material is clear of the inside of the boot. 5. Unfold Cordura upper and fasten at the back, making sure the double side of the velcro is the first side to be folded across.

* Please note that the use of any hoof boot over metal shoes will invalidate the warranty.
