Favorite Splint/Brushing boots?

No idea what to look for in a pair of these - is it better to buy cheap and afford a few pairs, or buy a higher end pair that will last? What style fasteners does everyone prefer...what brand/shop brand is everyone's favorite? I am budgeting around $50 to spend on these, so anything priced over that is a no go for me at this time...

I'm beginning dressage, not sure how much that matters, but seems that dressage splint boots are quite spendy.

Also, what color do you think would look best on a white/ flea bitten TB?

I've always heard great things about the Dover DSBs, and I think they look very nice as well. If not the Woof splint boots hold up nicely, and the have all sorts of colored velcro closures.

I do beginning dressage on mine. I have Woof boots black color fronts only (I put all 4 if I do some jumping). BUT the no-name splint boots will do the trick too (the only reason I go with Woof I like velcros there).

Nunn Finers and Woofs are my favorites.

I've never seen Nunn Finers. Are they leather or neoprene?

Neoprene. I use them for XC and flatting. These are the ones I have: (of course Demi's are super small so she only has two straps! Lol.)

Thanks! I really like Nunn Finer products (but I think I'll stick with Woof on boots, because it's cheaper :) ).

Thanks so much everyone! I'll look into all of these brands - sounds like Woofs are a favorite and I do like easy velcro fasteners...

Any opinions on these? The Euro's are a little over my price range, but I do like the fleece on them...or should I just stick with neoprene?

Personally I'm not a fan of fleece lining. I think it adds the heat to the leg plus it looks dirty in no time. BUT it's a matter of taste (as with everything ).
