Best english protective boot?

Hey there...
Just curious, what is the best all around protective boot for English? My mare has sports medicine boots, but those are more western. We do lots of hacks, and small gymnastics. I appreciate any advice!

I have recently switched to Polos. They are essentially the same as a medicine boots, they have a nicer look to them, but they are a pain to put on if your just learning how to do it. I have also used plain old hard open front hard boots and bell boots, they don't really give you any support, but they protect the leg from interference.

I thought polos don't provide much of support (as well as brush boots and all). I kinda remember the discussion here. But I'm not positive (as I don't use them and never researched).

You are correct Kitten. Polo's offer 0% support, no boot out there "supports".

Any boot that covers the leg ie: Brushing Boots, Splint Boots, do a good job at protecting the leg. They help to protect against nicks, knocks, bonks and bangs. Any brand will do from Roma, Davis, Woof, Professional Choice, Classic Equine and the list goes on and on and on.

I use Professional's Choice SMBs on my dressage horse so SMBs certainly aren't just western. I do however use fleece lined brushing boots and polos depending on my mood and what my horse and I are doing that day.
