Leg protectors

I would like to get some good things to put on Sonny's legs to protect them and to help prevent any injuries. I'm going to get Gingerrr's polo wraps and use those for the back legs but I wanted some better ones for his front.

What do you all suggest? I don't do jumping or anything too ruff with him, but we do tight circles when he runs through the bit (which he's been doing alot lately) and occasionally some fast stops

I like the SMBs as well. They offer good support in the right places and last forever. I've been using mine for over 5 years and they are still in great shape.

I would go with SMB...I SMB Elite (the newer model) and it works great on the front and back. They have used and abused but show little wear. I don't like messing with polo wraps, if you don't have them on well they can start to unroll on ya (but totally my view).

For what you want to do I think SMBs would be a good option. I don't know what regular english style leg wear is going to be enough, unless you have the 300-400 dollars to spend on a good quality set of front boots.

I agree, love SMBs.

Although those can be slightly pricey, I have just used regular brushing boots w/ bell boots with the same results.
