Eskadron is every day out here, and no where near that expensive!!

Eskadron Gamaschen - Reitzubehör, Reitbekleidung, Reitsportartikel - Reitsport Shop Horsestar GmbH

This is one of the websites I use.. however I quite like the PFIFF range, lasted FOREVER on my dad's mare, still got them, we bought them 7yrs ago!!

Pferd, Gamaschen/Streichkappen, Gamaschen - Reitsport-Exclusiv

The AWAtech are also very very good. The shop for the above website does Eskadron in house and the boots are about €30!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but usually boots are not used in hunters. If you want some all purpose boots that are exactly like eskadrons you could go with shedrow boots. They're the same thing, they do the same job and they don't cost 100+

Shedrow Open Front Boots [BOE0031]

Shedrow Open Front Ankle Boots [BOE0032]


I have two pairs of these and they've totally held up through everything! One pair I've had for over 2 years is still in great condition.

Thanks for the input, I'll look into those as well. I should have clarified, I guess. I would not wear them in hunter shows (I wear them to warm up at these shows but not in judged classes), but in our hunter o/f classes at county fair. The arena is not the greatest, and most of the horses are backyard pleasure mounts, so the judges are looking for basics: No refusals, correct leads, no obvious disobedience. Proper turnout is actually not even required, and there have been horses placed whose riders are not dressed appropiately. For fair and local 4-H shows, they encourage safety and leg protection to the hilt.

Okay, then you're good. It's USEF sanctioned shows that prohibit showing hunters in boots.

I use Eskadron leg protectors (sorry for my horrible english), very happy with them. I have never tried boots but there is a new popular kind here in Norway that are used in dressage, show jumping, eventing +++

Basically jogging shoes for horses :) Not the typical boot.

Thanks Becca! We actually have boots like that in the U.S. as well, but I was looking for more of a pastern/cannon/fetlock protector.

Nunn Finer has boots that I use on XC that are black on black... good for the hunter ring too.
