The Easyboot Trail is the easiest hoof boot in the world to apply and remove - and one of the most affordable. This is a perfect hoof boot for the casual rider and it doubles as a therapy boot.

With a tough protective shield and padded neoprene band, it opens up completely to slip on and off over a variety of hoof shapes and sizes. The rear double hook and loop attachment protects the entire hoof wall, keeping the boot firmly in place.

The Trail hoof boots are the second generation trail hoof boots, and has been given a complete overhaul and significant improvements, many of which are shared by the New Mac (the updated version of the best selling Old Mac G2).

The trail has the Mac's unique high-tech performance out sole, incorporating the unique hoof suspension system. The sole of the hoof boot is constructed from a specially developed ThermoPlastic Urethane (TPU) compound, which absorbs shock and aids recovery from concussion related injuries, as well as helping to prevent them.

The trail features a more refined and improved upper, with a host of improvements over the original trail boot, making it far more secure and much more resilient to damage. These features include a snug strap included as standard, so the new trail is more suitable for faster work when used with this strap (but the New Mac is still recommended for tougher conditions or deeper going), this re-engineered back strap features high quality hook and loop instead of a buckle (on the old snug straps) making the strap much easier to use, especially with cold or stiff hands. This back strap is also removeable and replaceable, and can be reversed to make a boot fit a left or right hoof, so you can remove the strap to make the boot more similar to the old trail in terms of being simple to fit if required. The back flaps are now made with a superior hook and loop material, and give a thinner profile thus giving less room for debris to become trapped. The back now features the comfort cup of the back country boot, which not only gives a stronger back closure and thinner profile but also offers greater comfort and much reduced chance of rubbing when fitted correctly. 

The upper of the New Trail Hoof boot is painted from the underside, so they will stay looking good, and larger rivets and a more rigid front shield make this boot much tougher than ever before! The upper roll on the New Trail now features the double neoprene roll as seen in the Transition hoof boots, the inner roll is a close weave to help prevent burrs sticking and embedding into the fabric that will be in contact with the pastern.

The New Trail horse boots can be fastened whilst the hoof is on the ground, so are ideal for horses that dislike having a hoof up for any period of time. New Trail boots open right out to allow entry of the foot. The new Trails come with full fitting instructions, and are sold individually. Comfort pads are advised for use in any hoof boot for the most natural and beneficial experience for your horse. For general use a 12mm medium Old Macs comfort pad is recommended for New Trail hoof boots.

A good choice for horses with slightly longer than wide hooves, but also usually work well on round and long hooves (inserts are needed for excessively long hooves, see Parts and Accessories).

Please note that the aren't ideal for horses with wider than long hooves. They are not intended for long distance or endurance riding as recommended for up to 25 miles, but can often be used for much longer periods depending on fit and terrain etc. The boots are supplied as singles

Easyboot Trail - Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Can I use the Easyboot Trail for endurance?
A - The Easyboot Trail is designed specifically for light and medium mileage riders who ride up to 25 miles per week.

Q - Why only 25 miles per week?
A - It is impossible to determine a one-size-fits-all mileage threshold because every horse is different, and so is every trail. So the 25-mile designation is not a scientific one. But just as you would not run a marathon in hiking boots, it does not mean that the hiking boots will always hurt your feet. Their size, shape and weight are simply designed for a different purpose. This is also true with the Easyboot Trail, which is designed specifically for the pleasure and trail rider.

Q - Where can I ride with the Easyboot Trail?
A - The closure system keeps boots secure even in the toughest of trail conditions.

Q - Is the Easyboot Trail comfortable for my horse?
A - The sole shape is slightly longer than wide. This is an important feature allows more horses to wear the boots comfortably and securely.

Q - Are the Easyboot Trail boots left or right specific?
A - No, the Easyboot Trail fits on both the left and the right hoof.

Q - Do I need to gradually break my horse into the Easyboot Trail?
A - Give your horse time to adjust to wearing the Easyboot Trail boots. The first time you fit your horse with the Easyboot Trail, start by just walking out. Gradually increase the duration and distance of rides wearing Easyboot Trail boots. Too much too soon can lead to chafing.

Q - Can I purchase gaiters for the Easyboot Trail boot?
A - EasyCare gaiters are sold separately as an accessory.

Q - Can I turn my horse out wearing the Easyboot Trail?
A - Yes, you can turn your horse out in the Easyboot Trail either to get him used to wearing or breaking in the boots or to provide protection.

Q - Can I ride my horse with the Easyboot Trail over metal shoes?
A - Yes. If you intend to use the Easyboot Trail over metal shoes, take the hoof measurements after the horse is newly shod to ensure a correct size. Using them over metal shoes voids the EasyCare Guarantee.

Q - Are the Easyboot Trail boots worn on all four feet?
A - That is really personal preference. It depends on distance covered and type of terrain.

Q - Do I require the same size Easyboot Trail on the front and rears?
A - Not necessarily. Always take hoof measurements as soon as possible after a fresh trim and measure each hoof separately. Correct size selection and proper fitting are very important and will ensure maximum performance from Easyboot Trail hoof boots.

Q - Can the Easyboot Trail boot get waterlogged?
A - No, there are drainage holes built into the sole of the boot.

Q - Does the Easyboot Trail offer good traction?
A - The Easyboot Trail offers superb traction on all surfaces including aggressive mountain terrain, creek beds, asphalt and loose gravel where horses can lose their footing.

Q - What's the difference between the Old Mac's G2 and the Easyboot Trail?
A - The Easyboot Trail is built on the G2 chassis, but it's 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 is sold in singles.

Q - How much does the Easyboot Trail weigh?
A - The Easyboot Trail weighs approximately 14 to 26 ounces depending on the boot size.

Q - How does the Easyboot Trail make contact with the horse's leg?
A - The boot makes contact with the pastern in a more concentrated area than a gaitered boot does.

    Easyboot New Trail

    Published by Ruth Hill on 9th Jun 2021

    This boot seems well made and fits my horse well. It is lovely and soft around the heel and pastern and it appears as though it will be secure although it hasnt been put to the test yet. When I got it out of the box it looked massive compared to the other boot that I had ordered for him to try. However, this one fit him so much better and seemed so much comfier that I decided that this was the one to keep. It was a lot dearer than the other one though hence why I have given it a 4 rather than a 5.

    Good durability but slightly clumpy and fiddly design

    Published by Ellen Klaveness on 27th May 2021

    New Trail are a great improvement on its predecessor, but the mechanism is time-consuming and fiddly to put on. The boot itself is quite big around the hoof. Lack of adjustability in heel height also means they fit a limited range of hoof types. In this price range there are other brands and models that I would prefer. Hi Ellen, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We find the Easyboot Trail can be really useful for a horse who has just come out of shoes, as the base is quite deep and so will take a thick pad, and they also have a really comfortable and padded heel area, are fairly forgiving in how they fit and also have good traction. They are also sized slightly differently to other similar boots, so sometimes the Trail sizing works out best for the horse. The Hoof Bootique Team

    Service from Hoof Bootique would be 5 star, so helpful and friendly. 1 major issue with the boots. When they arrive they always look far to nice to use and get muddy :) 1 minor issue is that they have unattached keepers on the straps. I think I will soon loose these but its a very minor issue and they could even be packaging and I have just thought they were part of the boot. These boots fit my elderly gelding very well and he has improved immensely in them even with out pads (he has PPID and had sore feet) Very happy thank you.

    Great service from HB and Boots seem the business

    Published by Jacky Davies on 5th Nov 2020

    I am a first-time boot owner, and I asked Hoof Boutique for a whole bundle of advice to help me choose. I am really pleased with these as they are easy to put on to my stiff little pony. The process of slipping them on, then doing up the strap with his foot on the ground is really sensible. Also, they make him look like Emperor Dalek pony, which is a big bonus.

    Easyboot Trail

    Published by Marika Connor on 2nd Mar 2020

    First purchase of this model, good fit for my Percheron, very happy as she has big feet and big joints, usually she has Old Macs, but the pastern strap on size 11 is too short for her ( back feet). Size 12 for front feet, pastern strap is 4 cm longer.
