Renegade Classic and Renegade Viper boots are ideal for many disciplines and one of the most high performance boots on the market. Once adjusted to suit the hoof it is one of the most easiest of boots to apply and takes no time at all. These boots can also be made to suit hooves that have a round shape. Uniquely, these boots have several adjustments, including a unique cable adjustment that make them flexible in their fitting. Once the cable is adjusted it is usually not needed to be done again. Boots are sold individually, allowing different sizes to be purchased for those horses with individual hooves
There is a left and right in the boots, simply by the way the straps do up, but they can easily be converted by simply taking the straps off, turning them upside down and re-threading through the other way. This is helpful in extending the life of the boot should there be uneven wear, but catch it early so as not to cause to much un-eveness to the horse.
The Viper boot has a deeper tread pattern, more flexible sole, is lighter and a little more ‘stream-lined’ than the original Renegade Classic Boot. The heel capsule is solid and the sizing is also different. See the size charts below. The Classic Boot is a little wider at the back allowing for wider heels and can be cut back by up to 10mm using nippers for strong scissors. Ideally a maximum of 7mm of boot sole should be past the heel buttress, more than this could allow for the toe of the rear hoof getting a purchase on the boot base, ripping it off and often destroying it.
The Renegade boots come in 8 different colours but the first 4 colours we try to keep in stock and can order the others in – Black Knight, Arizona Copper, Dragon Fire Red, Sport Orange, Yellow Gold, Metallic Jade, Burgundy Blitz and Chocco Latte.
The Viper boot comes in 5 different colours – Fluro Cosmic Orange, Fluro Emerald Green, Arizona Copper, Black Knight and Dragon Fire Red.

Renegade also make a glue-on shoe. These are ideal for endurance rides and marathons, or treks. They should be removed when not required. Learning to glue them on successfully takes a bit of practice, but when done right they stay on and work well.
Both Renegade boots are best suited to hooves that are low heel, short toe with a Brumby bevel and no or minimal flaring. While the boots are likely to perform well on hooves outside these guidelines reasonable caution must be taken by the purchaser.
Measure your horse a week or two after he has been trimmed and assess the amount of flaring, if any. It takes approximately 9 months for a new hoof wall to grow down, so if your horse suffers from ‘white line separation’ (flaring) then trim more regularly (every 2 – 3 weeks) using a Brumby bevel to take the leverage forces off the wall. You will notice the flare grow out down the hoof wall as the new growth comes down connected with the laminae to the coffin bone.
It’s important to apply a bevel from the quarters around the toe for an ideal boot fit as well.
