Does he need boots? What kind?

My horse is very klutzy. He also has a very choppy sort of extended trot (think clumsy standardbred racehorse). I noticed after a ride that he must have struck the back of his front leg (sort of on the bulb area) and had a pretty good cut. I've never had to use boots for a horse before so I'm pretty clueless as to if I should get him boots and what kind to get. Any sugggestions/links would be helpful.

Did he hit his heel bulb or his fetlock?

this with make a difference as to what you may need to get.

if it's the fetlock then support boots or open front boots could work well.

if it's the heel bulb then a bell boot would be helpful.
