Boots when ridding?

Just wondering who used boots on there horses when they rode and what brand. I use Professionals choice Elite boots. I love them! My POA's front leg would pop every time she took a step and as soon as I put the Elite boots on they quite! I tried the SMB 2 boots before that and her leg still poped every now and then. But now with the Elites they never pop.

If God brings it to you-God can bring you through it.

I use these:RenegadeŽ Hoof Boots, The Real Leader in Hoof Boot Technology! Horse Boots

I've had bad luck with every other kind of boot except these...

I use SMB Elites on all four. I also have a pair of SMB IIs for backup.

On Diesel I use SMBs or splint boots on the front. (Only when he needs them)

I have a variety of boots. I mostly use Eskadrons (I have front and back sets) but I also have dressage sport boots and Pegasus boots. The first two boots I mentioned (Eskadron and DSBs) are geared towards the English disciplines, but the Pegasus boots are very versatile and very much like SMBs except I find they have more support...

I don't have any as yet, so I am keeping eyes on different brands lol, and what people say about them.

Chances are if a horses leg pops you horse has a joint problem. You should be looking at the cause, not bandaiding it with boots.

I'm just trail and pleasure riding and have never put boots on my horses. Why do you use boots? Is it something I should be looking at?
