It does take a little to get the hang of putting them on, but, once you figure it out, get ready for a noticeable difference in your ride and your horses comfort level.
Thank you Boa Boots.
I have, however, had to change both of the front cables since one frayed badly and one broke during a ride; thankfully not too far from the barn. The cables are not terribly difficult to change but doubtful it can be done on the trail. Small amounts of grit can slow down the process tremendously. I would recommend carrying a spare boot instead of depending on changing a cable. Make sure you order spare laces right away after purchasing the boots.
For one thing, they were always damp inside. Yes, we are having a lot of rain and it's SC, but even on sunny days his hooves stayed damp. Even with removing and drying the boots daily, his feet got a bit smelly, probably thrush. Since he prefers the outdoors, when it rained they were really wet. It was a pain to take them off, scrub, and dry, then clean his feet all over again to replace the boots.
I will say the mechanism was easy enough to use, though getting them on and off was a challenge. I bought mine used and saved a bundle, and they came with gaiters. It was tricky getting the gaiters on and tight while keeping the base of the gaiter flat under his hoof. My guy is pretty patient but managing a boot and gaiter while holding his hoof up was awkward. Once on, they were easy to tighten up and get snug, and the caps helped keep the spinner from loosening. He did get used to them quickly and stopped tripping after a day or 2, though he was always cautious where he put his feet while wearing them.
Again, they were easy to take off, and they cleaned up well with soap though they took forever to dry. They seem very sturdy and well-made and I expect in use they will last a long time.
I began to suspect soft soles from all the wet rather than founder after a week or so, so I started Venice Turpentine on the soles which has helped more than anything else IMO. The constant damp environment inside the boots was counter-productive to keeping his feet dry so I stopped using them. At least barefoot he will have some dry days.
Overall probably a great product for keeping meds on feet, and for issues other than mine. They are well made and should provide years of use. I don't understand why the company that makes them no longer makes anything bigger than a 2; my horse isn't that big and he wears a 3. So if you need a bigger size buy now while they are available!!
