I hard pull ons and NOT cause they are a pain to pull on. If your horse has them 24/7 its easy for a horse to get rubs around their fetlocks. I've seen it happen to several lesson horses. Now we use velcro only. Plus they hold in a lot of moisture from mud and what not breaking down the coronary band. You shouldn't have a problem pulling shoes with properly fitted bells. The back should always touch the ground.

I use Davis over reach bell boots that velcro on. I've never used any other kind but they worked well from when I have used them.

hahaha - if I had to pull-on the regular ones I would have given up. I've given up before when I had bells on another horse and his feet aren't as large as my geldings. These easy stretch top ones though really do make a difference.

i've always wondered about that. I've never had a horse get a rub or have coronary band issues from wearing bell boots 24/7. I don't know if that's because of our climate or the horse's conformation or the type of boots I use or what.

If you keep on top of keeping an eye on things and making sure the hoof has time to 'breath' and dry. But its easy to loose track when your taking care of 20 horses.

My point is make sure the bells actully fit properly. You could have the best quality bells in the world but if they don't extend over the back of the hoof it won't work. I've never had a problem with professionals choice no turns, as long as they fit. I just buy cheap tuff rider bells with the fuzzy around the top. The rubber is thick, they are well made and they are cheap, like $18 a pair.

Have you talked to your farrier?

Our farrier is a doll and will fix 'flats' for free. When my mare tore off shoes 3 weeks in a row I told him I would pay for the fix. He said no. He needed to figure out how she was moving to prevent the shoe being ripped off. He ended up turning the ends so she couldn't over reach and grab them with her hind toes.
