- Takes the guesswork out of fitting!
The Easyboot Glove, Easyboot Glue-On and Easyboot Glove Back Country horse boots represent a revolution in hoof boot design. They are lightweight, simple and fit the hoof like a second skin. As the Glove and Glue-on do not have any hardware or fastenings, achieving a good close fit is more important than ever. Each shell has only 4mm of width difference between the next shell size. This tight gap between sizes helps ensure a snug fit, but it also means that there is little room for error in measuring and determining the proper size of boot. The Back Country is more flexible with it’s sizing, due to it’s easy to fasten upper which fits above the hairline and helps secure the boot. However, a correct fit is still important for the Back Country to perform successfully.
The Easyboot Glove/Back Country Fit Kit is the ideal way to quickly and easily determine which size Glove, Glue-On or Back Country is the best fit. The Fit Kit allows you to size your horses’ feet correctly before ordering your hoof boots, to ensure a perfect fit first time and preventing wasted time and money trying many different sizes.
The shell used for the Easyboot Glove, Glue-On and Back Country is flexible and has a great deal of stretch, but the boot should be a close fit and it is very useful to be able to try one size down (or up) from the measured size to ensure the best size for the hoof. It may also be useful to try a mix of wide and standard sized boots, if your horses’ measurements are between sizes or if each hoof has different measurements. Although taking the measurements is a good start to check if the shape and size of a horses hoof should fit one of these boots, the Fit Kit is the only way to properly determine the correct size.
If your horse has high heels, a particularly large heel bulb, or lots of bone, you may find that although the shell may have fitted well, the gaiter is too short for your horse. If the latter case applies, a gaiter extension should solve the problem. In the first two cases, the Glove isn't going to be the right boot for your horse, although the Back Country should fit as the upper is longer than the Glove gaiter.
