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+
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.
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.
