[RC] Revisiting boot issues for doing both Endurance and CTR - Sharon Levasseur

1. Those of you using boots for both Endurance and CTR, what are you using?
2. Anyone know when EB Cuffs will be released?

I do a handful of rides a year. There aren't enough endurance rides within reasonable distance of me, so I HAVE to do both Endurance and CTR.

Because of the CTR requirement of "nothing above the hairline", I've been shoeing my horse. I can't help thinking that it would be so much cheaper if I could just buy a set of boots... and that's not even getting into the discussion of which is healthier.

The original Easyboot doesn't seem to fit my horse well enough to stay on. Maybe with a duct-taped hoof and non-flattened teeth? Don't know, never tried, never wanted the hassle.

As far as I can tell, I'd need Glue-Ons for CTR competitions... but could use Gloves for training and endurance rides. I'd rather not buy two types of boots though, especially since the glue-ons only last a couple of uses. If I did that, then shoeing would probably be cheaper!

What I WISH is that I could use something WITHOUT glue and without a gaiter. WHEN IS THE CUFF BEING RELEASED????????????? Seems like that will do the trick. Maybe I should wait.

So dish... who's doing what?
