I was wondering if I should be using wraps or boots on my horse when we do flat work. I plan on taking jumping lessons in the near future and will definitely put boots on him for that (any suggestions? I'm totally new to jumping.) but I have read mixed things on using boots for the flat so I'm wondering what you guys think.
Tanner is pretty good with his feet but I'm going to start trotting some poles and we have been doing a lot more lateral work lately so I am kind of thinking I should have at least some sort of protection for the old man. I have some folks at the barn who can show me how to properly put them on him (I know polo wraps have to be done just so), but opinions vary widely as to when they should be used. Your thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated!
