Red face Brushing boot straps

Ok this is really basic but I have only had to consider it since getting Alli on loan last week but, which way do the straps go on brushing boots? Does the velcro strap end up pointing forward or backward?

The straps should point backward.

I don't think that having the straps pointing forward will do any harm, as long as the boots are just on the wrong legs and not inside out or upside down or something... Having them pointing back just makes them less likely to snag on things and unhook unexpectedly.

The straps point backwards. This way you are pulling on the front of the leg and not the tendon when you put them on. Never have them facing forward!

^^ What they said, but If you have double velcro then they would point forward. I have double velcro galloping boots, and the underlying straps I take to the back and the overlaying straps would face forward. And if you worry about them snagging on something (I've never had a problem with this) you can tape the straps down

Here's a video that shows how to correctly put one with double velcro on
