Like others have said, they can pull them off.

Every time I have to search a pasture or paddock for a bell boot I am thankful the bell boot was there to be pulled off, instead of the shoe!

It you go too much smaller (not touching the ground) like was suggested you will not be providing as much protection to your shoe.

I suggest you keep a spare set around to be able to replace the bell boot when the missing boot is hiding out there some where. They really can fly pretty far if they come off during very active horse fun.

wild spot,

You're funny. I'm guessing you don't use them much, because
The petals ..., and they sound cool too :]

I hate the sound of petal bell boots. I would cringe in the schooling area when I'd hear a horse come up behind me in them!

^ditto! SOOOOO anoying!!!

To the OP. Davis makes a wrighted bell boot that is Velcro locked. All you have to do is take out the lead weights and you have a double layer, can't be pulled off bell boot! I use them for turnout on my boy and love it!

Lol! I actually did use the petals for a while about 5 years ago on Wildey - I liked the sound and it made me chuckle when we would be in the ring at a gymkhana and it would freak out the other horses - Horrible I know! He he.

Amen! You just gave me a great big smile, because this reminds me of my favorite Houdini horse. So, thank you!
