I actually prefer the T-Boots to the Eskadrons.

You absolutely cannot use boots in hunter classes. Eq classes you can wear boots, but they should be leather. Jumper you can use whatever you want.

Hunter/Jumper is a broad subject there... Hunters you can't use anything. In Equitation you can use leather boots or polo wraps, but don't attempt to polo wrap your horse unless you know what you're doing. For Jumpers you can have whatever you want. I don't know about Eventing, I would assume though that for the cross country and show jumping stages you can use whatever you want and for dressage you need polo wraps, if anything.

Ok eventing- no boots at all in the Dressage ring. And XC the boots need to be closed. I will probably get leather open fronts for stadium. Any sugestions for good leather boots? At a reasonable price? If anything I will use my Woof brushing boots and wrap the blue straps with black duck tape! the wonders of duck tape never cese to amaze me!

You can get them at dover. I really like them because they are really light and easy to clean as well as being comfy and protective. They also are not lined with neoprene, which I like (my horse is allergic).

Bit of Britain does have really nice leather open front and ankle boots. They fasten with studs instead of buckles... they can really be a pain on antsy horses. They also come with 2 liners - neoprene and sheepskin.

Those are the ones MD has! I think I'll get those, cause I already know how to put them on!(Horse trail grooming pays off somehow!)
