I leave my four horses barefoot in the winter unless I plan to compete
in that shoeing cycle. If I'm doing heavy training on hard dry trails,
I'll often shoe the fronts and leave the backs bare, but they often are

I use easy boots on when I expect to ride in rocks, if their feet are
getting worn, if they are barefoot and I want to compete them, over
shoes in place of pads.... in other words, when I need to use them. All
four of my horses are very comfortable barefoot behind. Easy boots
provide protection in case I need it.

I shoe horses for convenience, when I don't want to "bother" with easy

are the cables and snap assemblies, and they can be repaired or
replaced. They are a great product... love them!
