I use boots like this for jumping.


Like with any gadget and accersory (SP) you don't want to become reliant on them, I am guessing you are going to be teaching him to jump, then a pair of boots on the front and back possibly could be a good idea untill he figures out what to do with his legs. Once he is used to jumping, you can probably take them off if he doesnt interfere with himself when he is jumping.

Open fronts are good with learning that way if they hit the jump with the front of their legs they will feel it and wont be too keen to knock the jump again

I would go with open front boots. I found these ones for only $25, which is an amazing price.

You can also get the same ones but with fleece lining for just a few bucks more.

I like splint boots or galloping boots for flatting and trailriding because it provides more protection. Here are some inexpensive ones I found...

Also, I would suggest not using polo wraps for jumping because they can easily unravel during your ride, which could cause bad things to happen.

Hope this helped!

I personally use open front boots from Greenhawk and would definitely recommend these over splint boots. I love them! They provide good support, stay on well and allow the leg to breathe. Good luck with finding your pair!

*Oh, and polos are good too, but once you get more into jumping, you'll probably want something with more support.

Polos or Open Front should be satisfactory..

Also if your polos are coming undone when you ride or jump then you are not doing them correctly. There is nothing wrong with polos and jumping.
