Ok so I agree with your friend those boots are a little bulky especially for what you want to do.

Well here are the boots that I saw that I liked

Also I forgot to add I need a pair for her front feet and back feet that match. Those also look alittle bulky.

Eskadron and Shedrow are very good brands. I wouldn't skimp money-wise on boots - they are a very imprtant part of jumping equipment! :)
These match:

Here is another matching pair:

Can you guys tell yet that I love Greenhawk?
As always, they are very prompt shippers, and are fair-priced :) I'm a very internet-wary buyer, but even I don't worry about placing an order with Greenhawk.


Ps. I didn't find anything I liked as far as boots go on Horse.com... are you dead-set on buying from there, if so, may I ask why?

I would like to buy from horse.com becuase im also buying a nice fleece saddle pad from there. I found boots I liked but im not too sure if they can be used on both the front and back legs, what do you think?

I am going to move this thread to the Tack and Equipment thread. That way your topic doesn't get lost amongst training talk. :) :)

Personally, I don't particularily like them. They don't look to offer much support, sorry.

Edit:

No those same boots can't be used both for front and hind legs. You would have to find hind boots.

Not a problem - I was just thinking it might get buried quicker in the other forum. :) :)

Someone told me at a barrel racing clinic a few years ago that almost no boots on the market off much in terms of support. Many boots out there are good for leg protection, but to offer good support, you need to learn to properly wrap a leg, and use polo or exercise wraps. It is more time consuming, but they are cheaper.

I don't think boots are the best place to skimp. Training and jumping puts a tremendous amount of strain on a young horse's legs and the more protection/support the better. How about these?

I've used SMB boots in the past and they're better then a lot of the boots out there. They offer both the protection and support necessary. Eskadrons are my favorite, but if you end up splurging and getting them, get the kind with flexi-soft! They're more expensive but the regular kind have been known to cause major tendon damage.
