Question Can anyone recommend splint/ankle/bell boots?

So my new mare is an equipment nightmare. She came with bell boots (that didn't fit) and I soon realized she does clip her front feet with her back ones. She also hits her hind ankles together when she really extends her trot. She has a pair of ankle boots I am borrowing.

But I was hoping someone could recommend brands or styles? Also as soon as I start jumping her I do like my horses to wear splint boots, especially in the deep sandy indoor. But I don't know if I should get open front ones or just regular ones? The ones I have are open front but cob size for my old pony so they would never fit my horse.

Any ideas would be helpful! I just want to make the most of my money and keep my horse happy and comfortable.

I highly recommend Woof. I tried several brands Woof are my favourite by all means (I'm using a/p boots:

I hadn't heard of them either but I've been reading about them and I think I will give them a try. My trainer swears by Sports Medicine Boots but I personally will only use them on a horse that needs that amount of support because of an old injury or weakness.

My trainer likes the Woof boots. I picked up a pair today since they were 40% off at the yearly blow-out sale at a local tack shop and so far I really like them. I prefer a bit more support since my gelding has one wonky leg but his legs are so short I'm having to have his Equine Legacy boots custom-sized, so I needed something to use in the meantime.
