Stay away from any neoprene or heat trapping materials when looking for a boot. The most breathable ones I've found are from companies like EcoGold, Pegasus, etc..
If your horse doesn't have an allergic reaction to sheepskin, it is another option, but synthetic sheepskin is just as bad for heat trapping as neoprene, so watch that its 100% natural.

Me and my paranoia with soft-tissue damage... I just got some Pro Choice dressage boots - do you have any thoughts on those? What do you (or would you) use on all 4's? Ro is big and young and klutzy and just learning lateral movements, so I'd like to have something on all fours for now.. Posted via Mobile Device
