Someone at the barn recently recommended that I get some boots for my horse for lunging/working. Not bell boots, but like splint/sports med/brushing boots that cover the tendons. My horse never hits himself anywhere while in motion so are they still necessary? I always thought they were just for external protection, not internal. But she told me that they provide support for the tendons...then I read somewhere on yahoo that they can actually damage the tendons. So anyway, I would love to keep my horse as supple and healthy as possible and if these boots really do help somehow by protecting the tendons, I would be willing to try them out.
What are your thoughts??
