EcoGold boots question

I wonder if anyone is using those... I'm about to order EcoGold dressage boots (basically splint boots), but I'm confused with sizes.

I'm using M on fronts, L on hinds at the moment (2 different brands - Woof and no-name), however Ecogold boots seem to be running bigger in sizes. I contacted them as well, and they say my M = their S, and my L = their M (I sent measurements). I'm just wondering why their sizing is so different from everything else (I also checked ProChoice, and they seem to be in-line with Woof size-wise).

Those boots are not cheap, so I don't want to end up with the wrong size (even though I believe they allow returns).

They'll let you send them back for sure, they are a great company to deal with in that regard.
The reason they are bigger is so that for the WBs (the majority of their clientele) they will actually fit without having to make an XXXL. Most companies design boots for tiny QH legs and I can't even find boots to fit my smaller WB!

I use a M on the fronts and a L on the rears. For the horses I ride this seems to be quite standard. I can measure the leg circumference if that would help you. I find them actually to be similar in sizing to Woof.

Thanks, Anebel! If you use M on your horse, mine most probably will need S (your horse is bigger for sure ).

I was surprised it's somewhat different from locally-sold brands, so just wanted to make sure I'm not making a mistake ordering S.
