Boots boots boots!

I have a few questions on boots:

1) Which brand of boots do you prefer?
2) What do you put on front legs & hooves VS hind legs & hooves?
3) Mind sharing pics of the ones you use or a link?

And I ride with prochoice bell boots on charlies front everytime I ride because he overreaches alot

For roping and barrel racing, I have pro's choice SMB splint boots and bell boots on the front. Nothing on the back... yet.

Professional's Choice VenTech Elites are the only boots I'll use.. They're expensive but SO worth it. When it comes to boots you definitely get what you pay for. I like the VenTech because they're breathable and don't hold heat on the leg which can cause more damage than good. They also don't let in a lot of sand..I have three or four pair.

More info here -
VenTECH Elite Sports Medicine Boot

They also come in many different colors and "looks"


They are sold in pairs but they can also be found in a four set combo pack that are cheaper than buying a set of the front and a set of the back. I really, really like that it's not just "one style fits all", the boots are specifically fitted to each leg, front and back. They comes in different sizes that are better suited to your horse..

When it comes to bell boots I only use Justin bell boots.. They have recently been discontinued and I don't even know what to do with myself. I'm looking for a few pair so I can buy them all. They are awesome.

I only use Pro Equines they are cheaper priced then the other brands on the market but they are not cheaper made boots. They have held up longer then any of my CEs or PCs. They are fitted to the legs and are good thick material.

Bellboots I only use Pro Equines on my open gelding because they are the only brand that doesn't rub him. I have some CE Bellboots that I use on my other guys but prefer the PEs.

And on the backs I use Polo Wraps.

I use both Legacy boots and Pro Choice VenTech Elites. But honestly I prefer the Legacy boots. They have held up a lot better to the abuse of my horses (particularly Ruger, he can dig his butt down and slide really hard, like a calf roping horse almost)

I use them front and hind. I put classic equine DLS bells on the front because they are hard and take the hits, I do not like soft bells on a horse that actually overreaches.

I'm on my iPod so links is a pain. I will do pictures later.

I use pro choice ventech elites in the front legs because there light and fit better than orhers in my opinion , classic equine bell boots because I like the patterns they come in simply and the back legs I just wrap with polos.

I use the Pro Choice VenTech Elites. (Front and back) I also use the no turn bell boots. (I think they are also Pro Choice...) I don't have any good pictures of them... mine are zebra.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
