    Boots? Advice, tips needed please

    My new horse is clipping on her left front just above the bulb. Currently we are working with a farrier that we trust to get her back to the right angles maybe this will help some of the problem but while we are in this process I have been told to get her some boots. I have never had a horse that needs boots, I am starting her on barrels and trail ride her extensively? Any suggestion on what will be the best boot?

    Over-reach boots will protect her. Look for some wth a kind of rough patch on the back of them so they will be more durable. Like this:

    I had a horse that would over reach regularely, but he was also hitting the bottom of his pastern. The best solution we found was heavy duty bell boots and polo wraps- on the polos we made sure the "v" was correct and in the middle so that it came properly down far enough to protect the area. Make sure you get bell boots with the heavy double velcro, or, if your horse rips those off, pull ons are a great option, even though they are a pain.
    I have seen a lot of barrel racers use the combo boots that are smb's with attached bell boots, but those just seem like they would inhibit movement, they aren't very flexible around the joint.

    Good Luck!
