I don't know if you should be skimping on horse boots as they are things that you will always need. I love the brand Eskradon, but here are some boots that may be good

I honestly don't think these give much support, but they do provide protection

These are pretty expensive but I used them on my first horse and they worked pretty well. It also seems like you like the wrap around kind so....

My friend uses these to jump in. They are pretty nice boots.
These ones don't have a price so you would have to go through that Tell Me More button.

Hope this helps

Here is an excellent post on boots, I always preferred the professionals choice boots, but Bex really explains in depth about most types of boots.

What do you guys think about these boots? I liked them and there cheap since im on a budget. I was thinking of getting a Medium for my TB mares front legs and Larges for her back legs but I have know idea if they can even be used on her back legs.

Does your horse interfere? (hit the inside of her legs with her opposing leg) These boots are the best for protecting against that. And that's about it. They don't offer any support. I've seen horses do well in these but make sure what you get is doing all you want out of them otherwise they'll just be a waste of money.

I actually have those for Vega. I only use them when jumping to protect her if she clips the rail or her rear legs hit her front legs.

I do believe they can be used both front and back, but i'm not sure.
I would also measure her to make sure you get the proper size.

well my horse has skinny legs and is still a tad underweight and dosent have too much muscle so I was looking for boots so that if she accidentally slips she wont break anything and because we want to start working her more and more and eventually jumping in the spring so what boots would I need for that? Im on a budget of $50

Hmmm, well honestly I'm not sure if there are any boots that will prevent a break. However, I haven't personally seen a horse break anything from slipping while working (not saying that it doesn't happen) but pulling or ripping tendons/ligaments are much more likely. In that case I would be more concerned about ligament support. I'd look for something that wraps around your horse's legs entirely and has that extra strap that goes underneath the fetlock like the "Sports Medicine Boot" type, like the kind that Professionals Choice makes. The problem is they tend to be a little above your price range. :) I'm sure the knock off brands work but I don't know which ones are quality. My advice then would be to look on ebay and see if you can get some good ones at a better deal. Or start off with front boots and get hind boots later. As far as jumping goes there's more of a chance of injury with front legs rather then hind (they take the brunt of the landing). But starting off with Ebay may be your best bet. I found had a pair of Professionals Choice boots somewhere.... where did I put them? :roll: If I can find them I will sell them to you if you're interested. Let me know and I'll start the hunt! :)

I always like the Woof Wear boots for situations like this, because they make a nice all purpose boot. Dover Saddlery sells them for $34.90 a pair.
