I want to get a set of boots for my horse. He's 4 years old and has been barefoot his whole life. He's got really tough feet, but this summer we'll be trail riding a fair bit.
He's been going on short 1 hour trail rides, maybe once a fortnight for the last 2 months, but we've mostly been on the nature strip on grass and only gone over a bit of gravel/cement/asphalt. He's never limped or been sore after and I plan to keep him like that.
I'll be putting him back on Biotin this week due to our crazy weather. Off and on raining and flooded paddocks that only just get a chance to dry out and then it rains again It's not doing any of the horses feet any favours.
I want boots mostly for trail riding since all my competitions (gymkhanas and show jumping) are on grass arenas, but I'll probably use them when we start eventing next year since the terrain is so varied over a course.
I have no idea what I'm looking at but from what I can gather, either Cavallo Simple Boots or Old Mac Originals would be the choices?
If anyone has any input as to which boot is better, or what boot I should really be looking at, that would be fabulous
The area we have to trail ride is on roads, footpaths and nature strips on the side of the road. There's a little bit of actual trail we can go through but it only lasts a little while and it's got a bit of gravel through it. Basically any boots that would do well going over varied terrain.
I'm going to stop rambling and go catch up on some sleep..... Thanks to anyone that can help me!
