Boots for XC! Help!

Hey guys! I'm looking for boots for my mare to go xc with. What are your recommendations?

I've heard good things about the Eskadron cross country boots, but they're very pricey. After I buy my saddle I'll start saving up for a set of those. A cheaper option that a lot of people go for is Woof boots.

I really prefer boots that have some sort of hard covering for protection. Woofs are great for every day use, but lack the level of protection I like. I really love Nunn Finer cross country boots. They have carbon fiber tendon guards on the front boots and cannon guards on the hinds. HWI Dalmar boots are really nice as well and have the same sort of tendon guards and cannon guards as the Nunn Finers but they allow for more breathability.

i really love woof boots, they are inexpensive, good in water, easy to clean, and last a long time !

My horse wears these on his front legs (I got them for an absolute steal off tackoftheday.com a few months ago!) & Woof boots on his back legs for xc. I worked for an upper level eventer for a few months, & she had Woof boots on all 4 legs for xc.

I think Woof boots are the way to go. For the lower levels they are quick and easy - easy to keep clean, easy to put on and take off, and affordable. Barnsby makes a similar style to Woof and I love them just as much.

Nunn Finers are my number one choice. Woofs run a close second.
