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.
