    I'd go with pro choice SMBs every time for the suspensory (sp?) support. That horse is really going to be digging in to get around those barrels so you want as much support as possible.

    Just remember folks: The "support" any of these companies claim to have in their sports boots is usually going to be less than 10% suspensory shock absorption. Yes, I agree that every little bit helps, but keep that in mind.

    No brace or boot will ever take 100% of the shock. Is there a boot that can offer more in the way of leg and suspending support? I'd rather have the added coverage, even if it only 10%.

    Actually when you think about it lets say you have horse who is 1000 pounds, while running in boots he only adds the stress of 900 pound horse to his legs. Then think of what your horse would look like minus 100 pounds. Most would say that's a significant weight loss. Idk if it makes any sense to anyone else, but it does in my twisted head.
