Looking for new boots... (horse boots, not riding boots)

I'm currently using Pro Choice SMB II boots and although I'm sure the protection aspect is great, I'm not impressed with their usability in sand and water. The arena at my barn has deep sand for reining, and the trails have a lot of water. Sand gets trapped inside of them and although it hasn't rubbed my horses, it can't be very comfortable for them. They soak up a LOT of water and become extremely heavy.

The SMB III boots and the VenTech Elite boots claim to keep dirt and sand out better, but what about water? Should I be looking at cross country boots?

Woof Boots do very well in water. They don't soak up alot, and they're lightweight to start with.

I use SMB's and I love them :)

My friend just got the brand new Ventech Elite SMB boots and she used them when we went schooling CC with a 3* Eventer, and she couldn't stop raving about them. They are specifically designed for Eventers, while still offering the protection.

I haven't tried them, but I would love to get my hands on a set :)

Thanks for the input! So does your friend not have a problem with the VenTech boots absorbing water?
