Actually neither of them interfere much, I just want a "peace of mind" to have protection on (especially since my paint has an old splint she came to me with). I'll check what they have (so far I only looked at dressage boots there).

BTW, I have Ecogold pad (but for jumping, not dressage). Nice quality, and I really liked the service there (it was made to order because of the blue color).

I use polos if I don't have splints boots or open front boots for jumping. And for dressage work.
However in the summer in GA or rainy days I never use them because of the extra weight that makes them sink down.

I'm an addict. I think I actually need rehab hahaha I love their stuff so much!
Their service is awesome - I had a pad split at the seams, shipped it to them they fixed it and shipped it back no problem. I imagine if their boots don't hold up you could send them back and get them fixed/replaced at no cost.

It's probably easier if you live in Canada (since they are Canadian-based), but from what I recall they didn't charge me to ship to US either. Hopefully they'll hold up! Exchanging stuff is something I'd rather avoid. Haha!
