Cavallo (4)

Sport

Cavallo Sport

The cavallo sport is very popular boot, due to it's ease of use, design, fit, and economical price. They are typically sold in pairs.

Pad Friendly
This boot can accomodate therapeutic pads so is also a great boot to use for rehab.

Good for:

  • Hacking on all surfaces
  • Use with pads for rehab
  • Easy to put on/take off due to simple velcro fastening
The Cavallo Sport is 5mm narrower than the Cavallo Simple boot. This may make it more suitable for hind feet.

Trek (Regular)

Cavallo Trek (Regular)

The latest boot from Cavallo, it has the original tread of the Sport and Simple, but with a redesigned upper which is lighter, softer, and machine washable.

Designed with versatility in mind, it can be used for general hacking over a variety of terrains. It will also accomodate therapeutic pads so is ideal for rehab. The Trek is also available individually, so is not left or right sided.

The velcro fastening on the front of the boot is now replaceable.

The Trek Regular Sole fits a hoof with a rounder shape; a foot with equal width and length.

Trek (Slim)

Cavallo Trek (Slim)

The latest boot from Cavallo, it has the original tread of the Sport and Simple, but with a redesigned upper which is lighter, softer, and machine washable.

Designed with versatility in mind, it can be used for general hacking over a variety of terrains. It will also accomodate therapeutic pads so is ideal for rehab. The Trek is also available individually, so is not left or right sided.

The velcro fastening on the front of the boot is now replaceable.

The Trek Slim Sole fits a hoof with an oval hoof shape, or that is longer than wider.

Simple

Cavallo Simple

The first boot to be released by Cavallo, the Simple proved to be immediately popular.

The boot opens from the front and the foot is placed inside, with the two sides sealing back around the front. Two thin straps then secure the velcro in place.

Ideal as a general hacking boot, a good tread design means that it grips well on all terrains.

The Simple also accomodates therapeutic pads so is great for rehab.

Designed for near-round feet (feet with equal width and length). Feet that are slightly longer than they are wide might find a better fit with the Cavallo Sport.

EasyBoot (14)

Transition

EasyBoot Transition

The newest boot from Easycare, the sole of the transition is designed like those found in athletic shoes. It consists of 3 flexible layers, which keep the sole close to the ground whilst offering protection and flexibility to the terrain.

The upper of the boot comes quite high up the pastern so is cushioned and padded well. There is no seam between the sole and upper part of the boot.

The tread is also very good offering grip on all surfaces.

The Transition is designed to be used as both a general hacking boot, and as a rehab boot for therapeutic pads, or turnout whilst poulticed. It can accomodate a variety of hoof shapes making it very versatile, especially for horses that are just coming out of shoes and need the protection of boots but whose feet are likely to change shape in the near future.

These are perfect boots for light riding up to 25 miles per week. Not really suited for endurance or long distance rides.

Glove

EasyBoot Glove

A very popular boot for long distance and endurance riders, the Glove is a seamless boot with no external buckles or fixings. Instead a very tight fit is obtained (and sometimes malleted on, or heat-fit), with the material of the boot itself having a touch of elasticity. An optional "power strap" can be fixed to the front and will help getting the correct fit. A snug and tight fit is essential for the success of this boot, so accurate measurements are needed. The Glove comes in over 20 different sizes.

Easyboot Glove Powerstrap

The Powerstrap gives a tighter fit and prevents tearing

Perfect for an already healthy hoof that needs some protection during long distance rides.

It is incredibly lightweight, which makes it well suited to high performance activities.

Ideal for slightly wider than longer feet.

Note! This boot does not have the space to accomodate a therapeutic pad so is not ideally suited for rehabbing pathological or deformed feet.

For feet that are slightly longer than wide, see the standard Easyboot Glove.

Back Country

EasyBoot Back Country

The BackCountry takes the best element from the Glove and the Trail and combines them into a single boot. You have the chassis of the glove, and the velcro strap of the Trail.

The principles of a tight, correct fit as with the Glove remain, but with the Back Country there is the added velcro gaiter that secures around the toe holding the glove shell in position. The velcro strap also acts as the "power strap" that was an optional extra for the standard Glove.

It is also modular in design, being made from 3 main pieces. This means if any part of it breaks, you can replace the broken part and not buy a whole boot.

The Back Country can only accomodate pads no higher than 6mm so is not ideal for larger horses requiring therapeutic pads.

Glove (Wide)

EasyBoot Glove (Wide)

The same as the normal Easyboot Glove, the Wide as the name implies comes in a size range that accomodates a slightly wider / rounder hoof.

A very popular boot for long distance and endurance riders, the Glove is a seamless boot with no external buckles or fixings. Instead a very tight fit is obtained (and sometimes malleted on, or heat-fit), with the material of the boot itself having a touch of elasticity. An optional "power strap" can be fixed to the front and will help getting the correct fit.

The Back Country can only accomodate pads no higher than 6mm so is not ideal for larger horses requiring therapeutic pads.

Epic

EasyBoot Epic

Released back in 2005/2006, this was the first redesign of the Easyboot. The reinforced velcro gaiter encourages a tight fit.

A popular choice amongst endurance riders until the Glove was released, it is still used by some high performance riders whose horses feet cannot fit into the Glove.

This boot will not accomodate therapeutic pads, so is not ideal for rehab.

A precise fit is required, so flared or pathological feet are not a good match for the Epic.

Bare

EasyBoot Bare

An improvement on the Epic, the Bare has an improved tread, which is unfortunately still does not provide a lot of traction in slippery conditions. Another criticism of the Epic was that undergrowth can get caught in the wire on the front of the boot. The Bare solves this by replacing the wire with a bungee system that can be adjusted to the correct tightness.

They are designed to be used for endurance rides. Due to their lack of depth they will not accomodate a therapeutic pad so are not advised as boots for rehabilitation.

The Bare has replaceable parts that can be bought separately.

Harder to fit and put on than other boots in the Easyboot range, its production has been discontinued since 2014.

Trail

EasyBoot Trail

The Trail is advertised as the easiest boot to put on and take off - it consists of just a large velcro attachment that wraps around the back of the foot.

There have been some issues with mud and debris getting into the velcro at the back and loosening the velcro, so it may be best suited to dry conditions or perfect for hacking with lots of roadwork.

This boot is pad friendly, and accomodate therapeutic pads up to 12mm thick, making it ideal for rehab or restricted turnout. It is ideally suited for light hacking (up to 25 miles per week) but not suited for high performance, long distance or endurance riding.

Old Mac G2

EasyBoot Old Mac G2

Significantly improved from the original Old Mac, the G2 is a favourite due to it's versatility.

Ideal as a general hacking boot, the agressive tread provides excellent grip across all surfaces.

The G2 will hold a therapeutic pad so is ideal for rehabilitating, or for horses that have just transitioned from being shod and whose foot shape is likely to change in the near future. One of the best boots for transitioning, it will accomodate a range of hoof shapes without compromising on fit.

Old Mac G2 Inserts

Old Mac G2 inserts can adjust the size of the boot

Pastern wraps can be purchased seperately that will help prevent rubbing for long distance rides. Another really innovative idea is the option to buy wedges that velcro into the boot and adjust the size and degree of fit - ideal for horses who are between sizes, feet that  change shape during rehab, or feet that are excessively long.

The pointy "nose" that was on the original Old Mac has been removed to allow for a more natural breakover, and the boot is made from a hi-tech material that reduces concussion, great for horses requiring movement whilst recovering from concussion related injuries.

Old Mac

EasyBoot Old Mac

When this was first released it proved a very popular and versatile boot. Ideal for hacking across all terrains, with a great tread providing really good grip. Very durable, the hoof is held in the boot by velcro tongues that reaches across the back to the side, and a strap inside the boot. This means it is a little more fiddly to put on, but once on will stay on.

It can also accomodate therapeutic pads, so is ideal for rehab, for horses with deformed feet, and for horses transitioning from being shod whose foot shape is likely to change in the near future. Not suited for endurance or long distance riding, but longer rides can be achieved if used with pastern wraps.

One of the few boots that can truly cater for the wider rather than longer hoof (the Easyboot Glove Wide is also good for wider than longer hooves, but will not hold a therapeutic pad, so is suited for healthy feet only).

The pointy nose at the front of the boot can bring breakover too far forward; ask your hoofcare professional to rasp this back (although doing so will invalidate your warranty).

Production of this boot has been discontinued in favour of its superior successor, the Old Mac G2.

RX

EasyBoot RX

Although this boot is not suitable for riding, it is ideal for rehabilitating pathological feet or for horses on box rest.

With a built-in therapeutic pad, the RX is lightweight and very easy to put on, easily accomodating a bandaged or poulticed foot.

This boot is not designed for riding in!

Edge

EasyBoot Edge

The Easyboot Edge was an improvement over the Easyboot Bare, although they are essentially very similar boots. The main difference being a different fastening system, the Edge uses a jubilee-style "worm" clip to tighten the shel around the hoof. This allows much finer control over the tightness of the fit.

The design of the tread was improved to allow greater grip, and padded tongues and gaiters make the inside of the boot smooth (previous easyboot models had horrible metal cleats that would stick into the hoof wall).

Good for an already healthy hoof requiring protection for long distance or endurance rides. Due to the lack of depth it will not accomodate a therapeutic pad so is not ideal for rehab, or flared or deformed feet.

Since it was introduced in 2009 it was popular with endurance riders, although it's production has been discontinued since 2014. The successor to the Edge was the Glove.

New Mac

EasyBoot New Mac

A 2015 update on the excellent Old Mac G2, the New Mac has been redesigned.

The front and upper of the boot has been redevloped with a stronger flexible plastic shield. The rear of the boot opens wide, and still has the original cross-over strap system of the G2, but the rear outer strap has been improved with the same kind that appears on the Transition. Ideal for hacking (less than 25 miles per week), the New Mac also accomodates a thick therapeutic pad, so is ideal for rehab.

Sold in pairs.

New Trail

EasyBoot New Trail

A 2015 update on the original Trail, like the New Mac the New Trail features a "shielded" flexible plastic upper/front of boot.

Still advertised as the easiest boot to take on and remove, the velcro flaps are secured with only a single strap across the back of the boot, similar to that of the Transition.

This boot will accomodate a therapeutic pad, so is suited for rehabilitation as well as general riding.

Boa (1)

Boa

Boa Boa

One of the original boot designs, the Boa uses a unique dial that tightens a lace around the top of the foot. This makes it very adjustable but also very easy to over-tighten, so it is recommended to use the Boa with the supplied gaiters.

Although used as a general hacking boot, the design of the tread does not offer the best grip. The Boa is not really suited for endurance or long distance riding.

It will accomodate a therapeutic pad so is useful to have as a spare rehab boot, or when restricted turn out in boots and pads is required.

The production of this boot has been discontinued from 2014.

Renegade (2)

Classic

Renegade Classic

A very popular boot with endurance riders. This boot has a modular design, meaning that nearly all the parts on it are replaceable and independant. The heel "captivator" accomodates lower leg movement, greatly reducing the risk of rubbing.

Boots are typically sold individually. They may require some fine-adjustments once purchased to give them a complete fit, but this is not very complicated to do.

These boots are ideal for feet that area already healthy and need some extra protection for long-distance rides. Once a good fit is achieved, they are known for staying on over all terrains without rubbing.

These boots will not accomodate therapeutic pads, and are not ideal for flared or pathological feet.

Things to consider:

  • vey popular with endurance riders
  • ideal for high performance activities
  • all parts on this boot are replaceable
  • may require fine adjustments after purchase
  • not ideal for rehab

Viper

Renegade Viper

Highly popular with endurance riders, the Viper is an improvement on the Renegade Classic. It is lighter, made of a stronger material and has a more aggressive tread providing better grip.

The Viper has the heel "captivator" design of the Renegade Classic, so lower leg movements are accomodated and pastern rubbing is virtually eliminated.

These boots are ideal for already healthy feet that need some extra protection. They are not ideal for rehabiliation due to the lack of space for therapeutic pads, or feet that are flared or pathological.

The Vipers have a different shape and different measurement guide than the Renegade Classic.

Points to consider:

  • Improvement in materials and design over the Renegade Classic
  • Ideally suited for high performance / long distance riding
  • May require fine tuning after purchase to achieve a complete fit
  • Not ideal for rehab
  • typically sold in pairs

Equine Fusion (4)

Performance Jogging Shoes

Equine Fusion Performance Jogging Shoes

The unique feature of the Jogging Shoe is that the sole is not rigid - it is a soft structure that moves and conforms to the surface of the ground. This makes it suitable as both a riding boot and a pad-friendly rehab boot, although it may not be durable enough for long distance endurance riding.

As the boot is so flexible it can accomodate a variety of hoof shapes, as long as the width is less than the length of the foot.

It is also machine washable!

Ultimate

Equine Fusion Ultimate

The Ultimate is the latest boot from Equine Fusion, and unlike the Ultra and Performance Jogging Shoe, has no external straps or fastenings, increasing the streamline look of the boot whilst retaining a good fit.

Instead a new velcro system is used, which provides a slimmer fit, and makes it the easiest Equine Fusion boot to put on or take off.

The sole has also been redesigned, taking the best elements from the Ultra and Performance Jogging Shoe, and providing the best grip yet on an Equine Fusion boot.

It is also available in wider range of sizes.

As with other Equine Fusion boots, it can be used both for rehab or for general hacking.

Ultra

Equine Fusion Ultra

The Ultra retains the flexible sole that is characteristic of Equine Fusion boots, with the biggest difference being the improved design of the sole.

Made from an improved rubber to provide greater resistance to wear, the outer rim of the sole is also thicker to increase ground dampening.

As the Ultra is made of flexbile material it can be used as boot to rehabilitate pathological conditions, whilst also doubling as a general hacking boot. It is not ideally suited for long distance / endurance riding.

Typically sold in pairs. Machine washable.

All Terrain

Equine Fusion All Terrain

Like the other Jogging Shoes by Equine Fusion, the All Terrain is soft and flexible. Whilst the upper of the boot is the same as the ultimate, the All Terrain has an improved sole design.

Not only is the sole thicker and made from wear resitant rubber, the tread pattern has changed, providing better grip on all surfaces.

The toe of the boot is also slightly bevelled, to allow for a more natural breakover, and increase durability.

There are no straps or external fastenings on this boot - the front of the boot is a large velcro strap that wraps around the foot to the sides of the boot, meaning you can move a foot in and out of it very quickly. The velcro is so secure with it's "locking technology" that it is now patented.

 

Jumptec (2)

Easyfit

Jumptec Easyfit

A European boot that is solely distributed by Cannock Chase Equine, the JumpTec comes in two varieties: a lace-up version, and the Easy-Fit, which has an elastic-based toothed tightening system to secure the boot.

Lace-up front with Velcro flap with elastic and hook fastening. The fit can be adjusted at the rear of the boot through a belt and double adjustable buckles with loops.

Specially designed for use on asphalt roads and gravel roads. The sole is perforated to allow water to escape by riding through puddles and streams.

Outer material made of waterproof, quick-drying nubuck cowhide with finish, fitted with elastic neoprene inserts. Rubbing is minimised by a padding lined with neoprene.

Floating Boots (2)

Trainer Boot (Front)

Floating Boots Trainer Boot (Front)

New to the UK market is the Floating Boot Trainer, which is the only boot that has different shapes for front and hind feet. Designed in conjunction with a vet, this boot is aimed directly at endurance riders. As such it is very lightweight (300 grams!) and durable. An interesting feature of the sole is a triangular recess with small openings, positioned where the frog would be. This allows the heels of the boot to move independantly, whilst still reducing concussion by 80% (compared to horse shoes).

Floating Boot Trainer front/hind shape difference

Difference in shape between front and hind boot shape

As with most high performance boots, a good fit is key to their success. Although the trainer may fit your horses foot out of the box, it is made of a thermoplastic material that can be molded to your horses foot shape. To get a specific fit, these boots can be heat-fit with a warm-air gun. The gaiter is required to be worn, snugly fitting the hoof and pastern, and virtually eliminates the chance of rubbing.

These boots are not designed to be used in rehabilitation of feet and will not contain a therapeutic pad. They will not accomodate flared feet or feet that change shape, so are not aimed at transitioning.

Note! The measurements provided are based on the outer size of the boot, so are larger than the amount of room inside the boot: you may get a better fit by going up a size.

The front/hind boots are not exclusively for the front or hind feet; a pair of front boots may fit your horses hind feet better, and vice versa. Fit is everything!

At the moment, these only appear to be available from The Saddlery Shop. A Fit Kit is available to determine the required size.

Scoot Boot (1)

Scoot Boot

Scoot Boot Scoot Boot

New for 2015 is the much anticipated Scoot Boot.

This boot is made from an innovative thermoplastic urethane, meaning that it is durable, flexible, and incredibly lightweight. With no buckles or velcro, this boot weights only 250grams!

Designed to be used over any surface, the boot is an open design with the heel bulbs sticking out of the back of the boot, so these will drain well and not clog up with mud or sand.

These boots do not turn on the hoof and will provide a snug fit throughout a typical 6 week trim cycle.

Similar to the Renegade and the Easyboot Glove, these are low profile boots and will not accomodate a therapeutic pad. They are suited for feet that are not likely to change shape during a transition, or recovery from illness such as lamintis.

Note: If the hoof length exceeds the hoof width by more than 10mm then the Scoot Boot is not suitable for your horse
