Has anyone used these for horses with Laminitis?
My vet had said to try them.
Please don't post anything really bad about them just email me instead.
thank you

I have used them. I like them better than the softrides because the softrides are clunkier, more expensive (with no guarantee) and the pad in the softride is way too much of a wedge, elevating the heels like in "old school" treatment. The Clouds are slightly wedged but compress to flat.
However my horse did not like them and was tearing them apart (he normally doesn't rip at anything on him).
Not sure if it was too much heat, or the bottom of the boot being too firm. We got a full refund from easyboot which was great!
What worked for us was a thick black foam pad put I sped an equine slipper (with the leather bottoms) to keep it on.
He was pretty sound in that set up and could be in a restricted in and out situation comfortably.

My horse lived in them for years. He was not laminitic however just severe arthritis and foot sore. It made a huge difference for him.

They are phenomenal boots for horses who need them for therapeutic use. They are NOT good if your horse wants to do anything athletic! They are superb for laminitis.
I carry them at The Trainer's Loft, and do give one week trials for hoof boots so that you can buy with confidence, knowing you can return them if they are not the right size.

I think I saw some in the SmartPak attic on Friday. You could call to see if they are still there.
