Re: [RC] [RC] EASY BOOT BARES - Terry Banister

>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.

Hi Marta,
I am not sure where you heard that the heel strap is supposed to be "up over" the heel bulbs, but that is incorrect. They should NOT be above the heel bulbs. Below are the instructions:


A properly applied boot: The INSIDE BACK STRAP is designed to fit snugly, LOW AROUND THE QUARTERS, BELOW THE HAIRLINE, AND BELOW THE HEEL BULBS. You can pull it into position with the included nylon pull-strap, then slide the strap out once the back strap is in proper position. If the horse has a very low heel, make sure the strap is not pulled out of its position, or in any way allowed to abrade a low heel. Horses with low heels may require the inside strap to be cut down a notch or two to avoid chafing near the heel bulbs. Do not use the boot if any portion of the plastic is above the hairline or touching sensitive skin. You will need to slide your finger in the back of the boot to make sure the backstrap is not touching sensitive skin.
