jumping boots

I'm just starting my horse in hunter, and I'm curious as to what you think is the best type and brand of boots to use for jumping. I have seen open front boots, galloping boots, and once I saw just polo wraps. I also know there are so many different brands out there, I'd like to have some recommendations of what I should buy for my horse-hopefully something that's reasonably priced.

Any boot will work - it just depends on your "wants/needs".

Open Front Boots are meant for horses who have lazy legs over fences. So if they are to knock a pole, they'll feel it and hopefully decide to not let their legs hang over the next fence.

If your horse is a clean jumper, then I wouldn't worry about open fronts, and I would look to a nice splint/brushing boot.

Like these:

Etc, etc.

I have always used eskadron on my horsies, easy to put on, easy to clean.

I don't use boots for arena jumping. As long as you properly condition your horse, don't over jump, don't just obstables too big for your horse, and only jump on good footing, you won't need boots for protection. If your horse interferes normally (knocks the legs and/or feet together), then you will need boots to protect for that, but you may want to re-think jumping altogether...

If you're riding cross contry, simple galloping boots are plenty to protect accidental knocks over solid fences. Some bells or overreach boots can be beneficial if you'll be riding on ground that is slick or churned up. I like Woof boots as far as brand goes. They're very sturdy and long-wearing.
