Best Protective Boots - Your Opinions!

I'm looking for both open-front jumping boots + Hind boots, as well as front and hind splint boots.

In YOUR opinion, which brand is your favorite and why? If possible, leave a link to the boots as well.

I'm getting a new horse and want nice boots to go along with him/her.

Boots are proven to trap heat and on horses who don't interfere, actually cause more soft tissue damage than they typically protect from.
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.

Good luck!

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..

In general I don't like professionals choice. Their Dressage boots are fleece and leather - both fabrics that hold heat in.
If you still want protection, what I use for my Ro is eskadron climatex under polos (make sure they are jump tek, or another similar "thin" brand of polo), or if I really want to use boots I have EcoGolds.
Basically, look at the boot and ask, if that was an outfit would I wear it in 90-100 degree weather?

What about something like this? Lami-Cell Pro AIR Horse Boots- set of 4 It has neoprene, but it says it has 'vents' to keep the leg cool.
I kind of like these, too: Eskadron Flexisoft Air Protection Boots Front Tendon & Hind Fetlock in 4 Colours | eBay

I know polo wraps can be a pain to put on your horse and take them off but I did real well in the show ring with plain white polo wraps.
White Polo Wraps:

Boots are much easier to put on you horse and they do protect you horse alot.
Hunter jumper boots:

Eventing Boots:
Dressage Boots:
