Buzz's new Gear :D

So I have recently gone on an ebay frenzy :P and Buzz now has 2 new rugs, jumping boots and a set of XC boots.
XC boots havnt arrived yet but I got some pictures of the boots and one of the rugs

Here is the rug





(Took me ages to figure out how it went on lol)
This one is a light mesh one for the flies, really got it a tad late as it's coming into winter lol but got it for $50 with another heavy duty winter rug

And here are the boots
I want some opinions on the boots please :)
Like if they are even suitable for jumping, because I want to compete in them

Um.. You don't have the boots on right... Do you have someone near you that can show you in person the correct way to apply them?

You have them basically right, but they look a little "twisted" and to high.

ETA that or they just don't fit correctly. Hard to tell over pictures on that one. If your going to use boots, you need to make sure they are fitting properly. Pluss I have never heard of that brand. *confused* Is that a brand that you guys mostly have in Australia?

haha yer they probably are twisted sort of just slapped them on to take pics :P
Pheww I was freaked out for a moment.
I will check tomorrow for a proper fit though, how would I tell

I'm not to sure either on the brand I bought them second hand on ebay, but after research (quick googling lol which I found that picture which happened to be the same brand) it looks like they are based on ebay Australia.
They do rugs and all sorts of stuff :)

I know that these are Pro Choice SMBs, but see how the fit and how they sit? I am guessing yours should be sitting and fitting pretty darn similar.



I see you added a pic. Lol Posting at the same time. :blush: They don't like they even fit the "model" really well either. I would be worried about causing more damage then what I was preventing with ill fitting boots.

The bottom velcro that goes around the fetlock, just needs to be pulled down and around a little more and then should fit better.

Buzz is a sexy man in that rug lol
