Jumping Boots Or Riding Boots~ Please Replie Soon!

Hey,

I was wondering if I should buy my horse Chinga jumping boots or normal riding boots. At my old riding school we used to ride the horses in normal riding boots and jump in them as well at my new riding school the horses don't wear any boots.

Please let me know what you think soon.

When I jump, I use SMB's on my horses fronts.

I read a studdy - cannot recall what magazine it was - but it was an article written by an Equine Vet who specializes in leg injuries. He was writing about how much strain and stress and shock our horses joints take with extreme sports, and jumping is one of them.

Think of how much our horse have to take whenever they land, or take off - so we want to aid our horses by protecting them the best we can.

Not only through proper conditioning and flat work, but leg protection.

I personally like SMB's because they aborb and studdies have shown through University Tests that they aborb the shock dispursed into our horses ankles, better than any other boot on the market.

I like to use them to prevent and preserve my horses legs.

I don't use them when I do flat work, nor when I hack. I only use them when I do Stadium or CC.
