Re: [RC] [RC] Putting on Easy Boots!!! - Karen Sullivan

I have seen other people have trouble with the pull strap.
VERY IMPORTANT: they come wrapped aroung the backstrap SO THEY WON'T  COME
OFF. This is important because if the boot is taken out of the box those
straps got lost.

*Note on the epics....I just cut out the heel strap; remove clear covers,
mash down the metal prongs and cover with a couple layers of Duct tape..been
using the epice since Nov. 05 with very good results.  Of course, there is a
wealth of info on Karen Chaton's easyboot pages..she has really tested out
the epics (as well as Terry Bannister).

Some problems can arise if the boots are sort of an inbetween size...we are
using mesh inserts we cut out of an ULTI pad (National Bridle Shop) and
Easycare also sells a foam insert....

A Karen Chaton trick that helps to get them on is to wet the gaiter the
night before and fold back to dry; so they are out of the way when you put
them on...my trick is to put the boots in the sun for maybe 10 minutes; they
go on much better when warm. I also still like to tap them on with a hammer
instead of twisting or pulling....
