Eskadrons

I've been saving up for a good pair of jumping boots that I can use for hunters and eventing. I'd like to be able to use them in water on the cross country course and not have to have a separate pair just for XC. A lot of people reccomend Eskadrons, but there are so many kinds. Which do you suggest?

I really love woof boots. They are neoprene so they wont hold water. They last a good long time, I've had my current ones for 5yrs and they still look great. You can get them from dover for about 30-some dollars.

As always, I'll suggest the Dalmar Eventing boots. I have a pair of hind ones and just love them.

I've never tried Eskadrons, but I've heard they are nice. Pricey though (at least those I've seen in Dover). Like gypsy I use Woof on my mares.

Neoprene will probably be your best option - waterproof, sturdy and easy to clean.

Thanks for the input. Woofs are nice, but I would rather have more huntery tones for use in the hunter ring. Here's a few options from Dover:

Obviously I would buy the rear boots as well for whichever I chose.

I thought boots were frowned upon in the hunter ring.

Personally I think $100+ for neoprene-lined boots is way too much, but it's just me. If you are totally set on Eskadrons then I'd go with the leather ones myself. Neoprene ones don't look new/very nice after couple months of every day use (at least in my experience).
