    She was wearing a pair of Easyboot gloves because the day before I felt she was backing off from the stones around (and maybe in ) the water and I wanted her to be totally comfortable. Too much grass has made her a bit footie.

    She looks great!

    You have the same BP as me, they are brill!

    I have been toying with the idea of getting C some of those hoofboots, they look to be quite lightweight?. Ive tryed Old Mac G2's but C's very fine boned and they looked gigantic on her diddi legs and they weighed quite a lot IMO. Either these or Renegades...........

    I have used Renegades on Belle and the grip is rubbish compared to Gloves, with the Gloves you forget you have them on and the sound like bare hooves, but with Renegades you get a slight clatter with them. I wouldn't use renegades on grass.

    ummmm. Well i am impressed with how the Gloves look, so it may be worth a go.

    Im considering moving to an area with amazing off-road hacking, but it's mainly unclassified country roads which are very stoney. Ive only just broken C in, so she's only used to tarmac, verges and the super surface layed on the dismantled railways (I am spoilt round here!!).

    I dont want her to lose confidence and lose the happy willing little horse she is being so far, so I am going down the 'boot route'
    I hope to take her cubbing, so definately wont be looking into those Renegades then-thanks for that honest opinion!.

    I have hunted Hattie with the Bloodhounds for 4 hrs in the Gloves with no rubs whatsoever , the going was quite dry though. All my tracks are stoney but we have some great hacking around a local estate on thee headlands

    Sounds great fun

    The rubbing issue is something that I am a bit worried about. But I was planning on doing some hacking work on good surfaces without them and save the boots for the not so nice surfaces, so she is not always wearing them.

    Hopefully if we do move, I will definately be looking for somewhere that offers stabling. Being on grass livery and not being able to restrict her grass intake very easily is part of the reason why she has stop being so rock crunching this summer

    Im not sure C will be too impressed with hoof boots though!. She already wears knee boots, brushing boots and over reach boots out hacking! We may have to do some de-accessorizing lol!.
