Alternating color splint boots?

Wondering if anyone knows if there is a way (without to much headache) I could get a set of 4 splint boots in alternating colors? Hot pink and purple to be exact?

My issue is, I need a one purple hind and one pink front, one pink hind and one purple front.

And I'm kind of at a loss for how to go about this.

Buy a couple of sets would be my guess. A set of pink and a set of purple. That is going to be about your best bet.

If you want to do alternating colours like that, you'll probably have to get two sets of four splints (eight individual boots) in two different colours and mix them. Unless of course you can find boots that can go front AND back like these in the colours you want.

Personally, if you're just going for colour and not interested in much protection or expensive, you're better off buying polos. Just make sure you learn to wrap them properly.

Yepper, buy two sets of each size, one in each color. (Assume fronts are a smaller size than hinds.)

This will give you another whole set of contrasting color boots once you wear out the first bunch.

I'm getting a color-coordinating polos for schooling, but unfortunately the splints I will need for XC as we will be doing eventing soon.

I was avoiding buying two full sets, but its looking like my only option. Poop!

Why not buy one color for the fronts and one color for the hinds and get your contrast that way?

The boots in my link can go on the back OR front legs. You could get two sets of that type, but that particular brand (shires) doesn't have many colours.

Many brands/styles of boots can go on the front or the back. Usually a horse requires a different size on the front than they do on the back.

Yes, and I doubt I will be so lucky as to have her measure out to be the same size f/h. LOL.

I kind of stray from the idea of doing the front one color, back another, because it looks 'uneven' to me. I know that sounds silly being that I want to alternate colors around the legs...but meh.

After much hunting on the internet, I'm wondering if I'd come out cheaper just to buy the boots in one color, and call it a day, and coordinate it with a striped helmet cover or something.

I almost considered buying a 4 pack of white SMBs, since we won't be going high enough for a while to be bothered by water crosses anyway, and then just dying them accordingly.

Right. I've never used the exact same brand on font and back so I didn't realise any of my horses had different sizes.


Your horse might get irritated from the dye, Dressage, and I'm not sure what it'll do to neoprene either. You could go black and white alternated with SMBs though. XD
