Boots are a personal preference when it comes to the different brands.. You definitely get what you pay for though, I only use Professional's Choice VenTech Elite boots. They're expensive but worth it..If you buy cheap, you'll get cheap.

Mine are full slint boots even cover the over reach area like a bell boot not bulky at all and are perf choice they kinda remind me of memory foam material. If yur interested in what they look like I can take a picture for you

Like combo boots? The boot and the bell boot in one? I don't recommend those AT ALL, you can't ever get those things to fit right and they won't take the right shape of your horse's leg. I use the separate boot and bell boot to let the boots conform to their leg while still giving that protection. The bell boot part on the combo boot is usually soft and doesn't exactly do it's job well..The bell boots are meant to be tough for a reason..It's meant to protect the horse's front legs just above the hoof when a horse over reaches..just a soft piece there won't protect against that hard impact on the soft area there..It may prevent nics and cuts but that's about it..

That'd be awsome if you don't mind :)

This is NOT a phase. This is not a game, a hobby, or a recital. This is power, this is control, this is teamwork. This is something we LOVE to do. THIS is something we LIVE to do.

A full set of Elites and a full set of Legacy boots are about the same price when I buy from. For my horse's leg protection price isn't really an issue, but I've just heard Classic Equine is better than Professional's Choice lol

I'm not saying Classic Equnie Legacy boots aren't good boots.. I just perfer the new VenTech Elites, they fit better, are breathable, and don't let as much sand in as other boots.. I really love that they don't hold sand and heat on the leg that can cause more damage than good..it's still personal preference though.
