    I just bought a pair of the no-turn bell boots today! I will let you know, but the girl that helped me said they are wonderful for horses that don't keep the regular rubber boots w/ velcro on.

    I got a large...my boy is 17.1 and she said they look small but fit different than traditional bell boots.

    Just becareful using the rubber no turn bell boots because those can cut up your horses legs. My old pony Kaspur wore bell boots and we got him the no turn rubber ones and he got a cut from them rubbing against his leg. To make a long story short the cut got infected even though it was covered and it took us 6 months to get him back into work. I like these ones that were posted earlier

    I use the lime green ones on my girl.

    All of my horses wear bell boots. They keep them from overreaching and loosing numerous shoes. I prefer the rubber ones that you can keep on all the time. They are very comfortable for the horse and they can also protect your horse in the field, as well as when you are riding. There are also a type with velcro, but they are only for while you ride, so that's no good for me. The rubber ones can be a pain to get off, but you mostly leave them on, unless you are showing hunters, then you need to take them off before you go in the show ring.

    Upnover,
    Sonny only oversteps when he's mad at me or when he's bored of being lunged. He'll do it when I'm lunging him for a while in one direction, or if I have a box of food (my food) and I refuse to give into him and give him one. Kinda weird, but other than that I haven't noticed him doing it. I'll use it all the time when I ride, but won't have it when he's turned out.

    I bought some rubber ones wil velcro on it at a local tack shop. The lady who was at the tack shop said they work good. Hopefully they'll fit. The lady said that a medium should fit a regular sized horse where as small was for pony and large was for a warmblood or draft.

    Going to try them out tomorrow. Cross your fingers and hope they work.
    I'm going to put them on right after I clean his feet so if he gets frightened of it, he can have his bucks while lunging and hopefully get used to them by the time I get on him

    bell boots ect

    Have your farrier check the trim anle on you horse I have a T.W.H. Mare that will clip when she is upset with me she is just showing her temper but in doing so she is over reaching on Duchess we have to trim her toes back a bit to stop the reaching over and hitting so she doesnt hurt herself and if I put shoes on her she will pull them off at times from the reach

    I would let your farrier know that your horse is clipping he might need to change how he is showing him. I use bell boots and protective boots on my horse when we are running barrels at a show but at home when I am just exercising him I just put his bell boots on just to be protective.
