    same here. My horse is so clumsy. He would have cuts everwhere. He's still young so he does get occasionly spooked and like trips over himself. Or he gets excited and overeaches and possibly takes off a shoe....or a chuck of his leg. Or he decides to kick things with his front hoof to make sure it wont eat him. Or run into the mounting block.
    He's so wierd sometimes. But he's always fun. Never a dull moment. Lets just say with any other horse I feel boredd!!

    all boots offer some level of protection.
    Some boots offer varying levels of support and shock absorption.

    The key point here is riding without additional support all the time. In a situation such as your horse, it would make sense that he would always need some leg protection.

    Hope that clarifies things!

    What would you reccomend if I wanted support for just jumping? I Usually go bare for conditioning and dressage. I just like support for jumping because my horse is only 4

    I would work on getting his legs an not supporting them now. It will not allow the leg to condition up and become reliant on the boot to jump.

    So you would just put on protection boots?
