Re: [RC] EASY BOOT BARES - Jo Ann Knight

My trimmer cut the heel strap out right away.  My mare didn't seem
confortable with it.  This gal is a bare foot trimmer and fitted my Bares
for me and will check them in 4 weeks.  In the mean time she showed me and
the trainer how to do the adjustments.  I figure with my luck i will take
awhile getting used to that operation!

They go on nicely and will, once broke in be tightened a bit but with the
gaiters, I don't worry about them falling off!

So far the horse likes them and that is the most important part for me.

I do appreciate any information I can get though.  I still wonder if each
boot should stay with one foot, not be interchanging them around.  For me
that means marking them R , L etc..

despite of all the instructions out there, i wasn't able to get the heel
strap up over my mare's heel bulbs when using the bares. even when i thought
i did, i didn't. and forget getting them adjusted. if adjusted i didn't
stand a chance w/ the heel strap. 
so on my trimmer's advice i cut the heel straps out like i used to in epics.
haven't tried them yet while riding but i can get the boots adjusted much
my trimmer was surprised to hear that cutting of the heel strap is no longer
recommended in bares. her clients use epics (and so does she) and they all
cut the heel straps out. we were wondering what makes bares different than
bares w/ re to straps. i know you karen did not cut the straps out on your
bares, right?
