TheEasyboot Back Countryand theEasyboot Glove Softare often compared because they have the same base. Both styles are built on theEasyboot Glue-On shell.

-Both boots have the same base, which means they have the same sizing chart and offer the same breakover.
-Both come in regular and wide sizing options to fit more oval or more round hooves.

-We typically recommend selecting the half size up from where your horse’s hoof measurements fall on the size chart for this style.
-This makes the boot easier to apply, and grants a little wiggle room to accommodate a longer trim cycle, roughly 6-7 weeks.
-The waythe Uppercovers and tightens around the hoof allows for some adjustability in fit.
-This boot is rated for 50 miles per week, on average.
-Debris could potentially get caught in this boot through the opening on top, even though it is pretty snug.
-This style needs a perfect fit, as there is no adjustability. It requires a 4-week (or less) trimming cycle.
