Go with the classic equine legacy boots, I've used proffesionals choice and they aren't very durable. Also, too many people use polo wraps that shouldn't, they need to be wrapped carefully or else you could end up doing what you are trying to avoid, leg damage. You probably don't need hind boots, my horses never Nick their back legs and yes I did once do barrels and I even rein, but bell boots are great. Hope it helps s little:)

I use the Classic Equine legacy boots too because my horse is really hard on her boots and the Professionals choice ones only last me about a year. The Legacy boots are really tough and they last a long time.

I use Legacy boots on Duke. Both front and rear work great! They fit him nicely and hes a hard horse to fit. They are good quality and all that stuff! And come in lots of cool colors! Heres the front! And for bell boots, i use Classic Equine. They have this pad on the back so i know hes super protected! :p

Personally, Im not a fan of polo wraps.. They just dont seem to protect as much. My barrel trainer told me to wrap a polo wrap around my shin and put a boot on the other.. She tapped my shin with a hammer (lightly of course, but with enough that i could feel the difference) and asked me which hurt less. It was definitely the boot (: Nothing against people who use polo wraps, its just my opinion!

All leads up to the time they make, with every step that wild horse takes.. It's a gamble , she can handle, 'cause he's her leap of faith.'

I use SMB boots and bell boots on the front legs only.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia
