SMB's are used for Eventing, Stadium, Dressage, Endurance and the list goes on.

I am an Eventer and I use them all the time. I see them quite often.

They are the only boot on the market proven to absorb shock. Support - is very minimal in the studdies I've read.

StormyBlues - I would love to see pictures of you and your Eventing Team :)

Woof Single Lock Brushing Boots - Dover Saddlery...

The best boots and only boots I will use. These are the more expensive ones. They have ones identical but with 2 straps (small medium and large size) for about $40. Also on dover. And you can get either in almost any color. I LOVE these boots. I event and everyone I know uses them. Almost 1 out of every 3 horses I see at events have on woof boots. I personally don't reallly like SMBs. I don't see that many people use them for jumping (not saying they aren't good for that just don't see it often). If your just going to be jumping stadium jumps, open fronts are fine but if you plan on doing any cross country or solid jumps I wouldn't get open fronts.

yea, SMBs in Competition must be a northern Yankee thing. I have NEVER seen them in compotition before. Everyone around her uses Woofs, davis splint boots, or something else of that type of boot. I Would recomend Woof Open Front and Hock boots. My friend Spencer uses them all the time on Shadow and they are great boots!

Open fronts and Splint Boots/Brushing boots are fine for stadium jumping - because you are in a nicely conditioned environment with nice deep sand that is grommed and even.

So when you are doing stadium - there's your answer :)

CC - one should want more protection for their horses joints because the grond is harder, the terrain is uneven and our horses take much more doing that, than they would stadium.

I'm not saying SMBs are the be all and end all, they are all I know though because I've used them for such a long time and they've done their job as they were created to do.

BUT what one should look for in a good, protective sport boot while doing CC is something that ABSORBS THE SHOCK our horses joints take - and brushing boots/splint boots do not do this.

Now, Woof makes great Eventing Boots. They are lined with Neoprene, which is what abosorbs the shock, while protecting and allowing air flow.

Woof Cross Country Boots - Dover Saddlery.

Eskradon makes boots that are meant for Eventing as well:

Same with these neat one's:

Tri-Zone Cross Country Front Horse Boots - Dover Saddlery.


Those are the type of boots made specifically for eventing - to meet the needs of our horses joints.

I wouldn't put basic woof's on my horses legs for eventing - they don't abosorb the shock.

I like the looks of those Tri Zone boots.

I only do hunter/jumper with the occasional stadium round here and there so I don't need a major support boot.

I just got a $25 off coupon for thinline so I think I'm going to go with their open fronts because it would be impossible to find them that cheap again.

I've looked at tons of reviews and all of them have been great so I think I've made my decision.

Thanks everyone for your help!
