    Woofs do not get water logged, unlike SMB's. Which is why I do not use them. They are simply not used in my area

    That's your choice. Your horse, your money, your preference.

    I have used SMB's for years, thorughout Pony Club and up to today, and I've never had a problem with them. Even when I go through water. Never had leg issues, never had any horse I've used result in injuries due to them.

    Personal preference, use what you want.

    They are very popular around here.

    See, I had never seen an eventer use them until ou mentioned them Kim.

    I don't like Davis boots, they are too hard shelled for a
    XC boot for me

    I use these...Toklat Splint boots. I LOVE them, the only problem is when they get muddy and you throw them in the washer, the padding in the splint protector gets jumbled. But besides that they've been AWESOME!

    I just got a pair of these from Dover for my boys and they seem to be working great and not to bad a price

    For xc use whatever you like though I prefer something with under the ankle support esp for front legs. At the lower levels it doesn't make much of a difference, at the higher levels i'd want more protection.

    My jumper goes in veredus gel boots which I love. Amazing open front boots.
    My clyde-x is bigger and hard to fit and does both xc and stadium in open front roma gel boots. Right now he's doing xc only up to 2'7" but ideally i'd like a more full-coverage boot for him in the future (but $$ is tight right now).
    My arab trail gelding who will come camping with me (and would do endurance if he didn't have disc issues in his back) goes all around in tolkalat (or similar) splint boots for protection which I love - and only use on longer / brush filled trails. Locally or in the open he doesn't use any.

    I also am not a fan of using boots every time you ride or jump, but only in shows, out xc, and when working harder or in different/challenging footing. I believe (though there are studies that go both ways) that over using boots does not allow a horse to build up proper leg strength. Again just an opinion and personal preference since there are studies that show the amount of support a boot provides is negligible, though also studies to the contrary.

    If you really want to spring on some NICE boots that will last you forever, then get these: LEG PROTECTION I use them for XC on the front and absolutely love them.

    N.E.W.'s are also supposed to be nice.

    I also use the ones that VanillaBean posted for stadium.

    As you can see, I have a lot of boots

    See, if I worked without boots on my horse, he would be so hurt all the time. His back legs brush together, so they'd be SO sore, and he overreaches when we gallop or jump.... I never go out without some protection on his legs, ever.
