Hooves don't compress much.... So a tight boot wouldn't bother a horse much, I don't think - if it did, it would hinder natural movement. We don't want prancy horses.
Sorry, but I think I'm going to have to make like a Mythbuster and call this one busted.

I have nearly caught up on all the episodes on Netflix now with this whole stupid surgery recovery. I love that show!
Anyways..! There certainly are practices in dressage I don't agree with and I wish didn't happen. But this one is a little nonsensical - hooves are rigid, and if poking nails through the wall won't hurt the hoof, I really fail to see how a boot could be applied then tightened enough to compress the wall to cause discomfort.
I could be wrong, but I've personally never ever heard of this practice.

Wouldn't those darn metal clips with teeth that easyboots have cause the same pain then? They bite into the hoof wall.

hooves are rigid?? Really?? I thought they were squishy
No, I was refering to boots like brushing boots and medicine/trail boots. That's what supposedly causes the lift/knee action and the high raise.

Have you missed the point that has been posted by more than one person that dressage people do not want knee action?

We don't want our horses to look like Saddlebreds with knees snapping up every stride, every gait. We need them to come in and out of "higher knee action" movements easily, and we don't want them flinging their legs about at the canter. I can't see how soring would enhance a dressage horse's gait, especially since soring is something that has to be done consistently to get results.
No leg, no dressage horse.
In addition, one can't compete with wraps on - I'm relatively sure that's been a rule for a long time, so it can't have been used in the ring. Beyond that.... what sort of wrap intensifies pressure (without blowing tendons) and releases when the leg is off the ground?

That's why I thought it was cruel. And, I do believe I mentioned in a previous post something about most of it being illegal in the ring anyway??? However, I do respect your argument about not wanting the horses to resemble gaited horses. I wasn't arguing- I was simply mentioning a technique that I thought was unecessary reguardless of when, how, and by whom it was used. Now, I am also going to mention that this subject is completely off topic of the thread at hand. So, if we are done with this, I suggest we get back on subject.

Meh personally I'm glad to clear up any misconceptions when they're presented so that the misinformation isn't spread further.
