[RC] Ez boots or Old Macs??? - terry banister - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Ron Shaffer ron.shaffer@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am sorry but I must completely disagree with Ms. Banister.  I
have been using Old Macs for over two years now on 2 Arabs and a 
Qtr H and have had NO chafing problems whatsoever.  I will agree 
that it takes a little (very little) effort to put them on and
take them off but they have NEVER come off my horses under any 
conditions.  The same can not be said for the EZ Boots I have
tried.  Also I am not a fan of the metal shanks used to help
hold the EZ Boots on as they are designed to slightly penetrate
the hoof wall.

I have not used the new EZ Boots but in one of Ms. Banister's 
emails a while ago I believe she indicated that one of the
new EZ Boots she tried also came off during a ride.  I have
NEVER had an Old Mac boot come off, come loose, shift or cause
chaffing in my 2 + years of using these boots.  They do however 
wear out.  I get about 4 to 6 months use out of a pair.
Properly fitted and properly put on you will not have any 
problems with the Old Macs.

I gave away my EZ boots after I found Old Macs.
