Jump Boot Help Please!

So, I currently jump the horse I ride in Davis splint boots, and they do their job. I also use them for cross country. I am looking into some Roma Open front boots though, as an investment. Nothing fancy, just the plastic ones with sheepskin. Heres the link:

Roma Sheepskin Lined Open Front Boot Horse Protection Horse Equipment Stable HorseLoverZ.com

My question is, will I have to buy 2 of them? Like, in "quantity". I believe tey come in pairs, so if I'll need 4, I'd have to enter "2" into the "quantity" bar.
OR
Do I even use them as hind boots? I don't own a horse, so I'm not that educated in boots. Will I have to buy ankle boots as hind boots to match this style?

If someone could give me an explanation, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

if you want to get boots for all four legs you get open front boots for the fronts and ankle boots for the backs.

Right, you would need to to enter a "2" in the quantity bar to buy 4 boots.

But, most people use ankle boots on the hind legs if they're using open fronts on the fronts. There are open front boots specifically designed for hinds, though - they are generally a bit taller than open fronts designed for front legs.

Perfect! Thanks for the responses.

My Beau- that's what I wanted to hear, I was hoping to sue ankle boots on the back. Only problem is I can't seem to find the matching pair of ankle boots to this pair of open front boots- is that a problem? Or can I use 2 completely different brands? And are the ankle boots supposed to be sheepskinned lined as well? I feel like it would look weird if they weren't...

Thanks so much!

they don't have to be the same brand if you can't find it. You can get ankle boots that are sheepskin lined, there are also a lot that are neoprene lined.

Yah I would definitely get open front of the front and ankles on the back. Don't use open fronts our cross country though!!!!!!! I would recomond Nunn Finner with the carbon plate in it for cross country, regular nun finners, or porter boots.
