I used SMB boots which work nicely. I also like Professional Choice sport boots. :)

I use polo wraps most of the time and occasionally classic equine boots :)

Professional's Choice Elite Ven-Tech boots..LOVE THEM. I've never had any problem with Professional's Choice boots. I have them in brown, pink, turquoise, and giraffe..but I will swear the best bell boots are the Justin ones..they are great and last forever.

I have had good luck with the Bar F Wraps. They seem to keep the dirt out better then the SMB II. They are also easier to clean, you can just hose them off, as where the SMB II you have to put them in the wash.

If you think about it..how much support can a piece of neoprene and velcro offer a 1100 animal?

So I go for what will hold up the best and offers the most protection. IMO Classic Equine legacys are the best boot on the market.

My open horse turns extremely hard

...and he rips the suspensory straps off of PC boots. So in my experience, CE gives you a higher quality boot....so far no tears in the pair I purchased 5 years ago. My PC boots are ripping after 5 uses.

I love my Pro Choice SMB Elites. Pricey, but worth the investment. I use mine for cross country, jumping, barrels, etc.

Here's my problem....how do you know your horse is getting the support it needs???? Like Red Horse said..it's just neoprene and velcro. What offers the best support and how can you tell?

I use and love Classic Equine Boots to me they are not too thick or too thin they are not too shaped and they hug in the right places I have used both Professionals Choice Elite and Professionals Choise SMB III and I like SMB 3 better but Classic Equine are my first pick now and they run at about the same prices
