The old boy spent the bulk of his youth in gaited shoes, his toe was looong when we got him and we have finally gotten a more normal profile on his foot. He's a little ouchy still, with a flat foot in front, rather than go the shoe route, which is what the vet has suggested, I'd rather boot him.
The problem? I haven't seen a horse yet with a boot hereabouts and have no way to ask for recommendations, so I've been online here and elsewhere - by now I am sooo confused!
I like the look of the Renegade, the EZ boot edge (worm screw) not so much the Cavallo but it does look basic, but I'd like the ability to put in some interior padding and liking a boot because of the way it looks isn't really the way to go.
So given a 20ish somewhat arthritic flat footed five gaited horse, which would you recommend and why?

Reason: got proper name

I agree with Leather - I'm going to go with Gloves for my Paso as well.
