    Default Renegade hoof boots- who uses them with the traction studs

    So the farrier helped me measure my girl for renegades today and I was trying to decide whether I need the traction studs or not. I do ride a widely varied terrain- roads, grass fields, very rocky trails, some solid rock face, mud, etc. I normally have borium on her shoes.
    So would you think I should get the traction studs on the boots or do they give enough traction as is?

    I have found the studs to be slippery over solid rockface. Otherwise they are great. (But we stay away from solid rock surfaces. It just gave me too much of a scare on one ride.)

    My understanding was that the studs were slippery on rock and pavement, and I was worried that my horse would get "caught" on them and rotque a leg in other terrain. She has never had any problem with the regular Renegades.

    I only use the studs in snow. For everything else, the regular ones have decent traction. If you're in deep mud, I'd consider the studs, but they are slippery on rocks, asphalt, etc.
