[RC] Anyone use EasyCare comfort pads for arthritis? - Sharon Hahn

I see EasyCare has a relatively new product called the comfort pad which slips inside the Easyboot.  Both of my mares are ridden with Easyboots over bare feet and like their boots very much.  Both mares also have mild arthritis (one is simply getting old at 24, and the other has some arthritis in a rear fetlock joint due to a fracture a few years ago).  I was wondering if adding the comfort pad might help, particular with the younger mare.  Seems like it might mitigate the pounding as the hoof hits the ground - like a person wearing a good athletic shoe vs. trying to run in hard dress shoes.

Has anyone used these?  If so, I'd be interested in your experience.
