    Are boots neccesary for jumping?

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I had a question though, about splint boots and if they are a good idea to use even if you are jumping smaller fences (under 2'6")? I mean, can they can't do any harm, can they? I just don't want to put them on my mare unless it's recomended, you know? Or is it a good idea to give her that protection just incase?

    Thanks!

    I think protection no matter what you're doing is a good idea! It wouldn't do any harm I don't think

    The only time it could do them harm is if you don't put them on properly. Personally I like woof boots for jumping. I don't use boots every time I jump though.

    Thanks guys. I just wanted to get someone else's opinion. I've tried looking it up online before but there are a bunch of mixed answers. And then the whole polos vs. boots, I figure boots are easier, quicker, more protection, and harder to mess up!!

    I use boots all around, even when I'm just flatting. Plus, my horse is a giant squirrel, so when he pulls one of his mini tantrum moments, I want him protected.

    I use either my open fronts, galloping boots, or if it's a long/hard ride, I want maximum tendon support, so then I'll use my Legacy smb's. :)
