Cool Overreach boots on all fours?? Whaaaaat???

I saw a picture of Laura Bechtolsheimer in one of the most recent Horse&Rider magazines and the horse in question had overreach boots on all fours...

She was either competing/just leaving the arena of a competitiion.

So- why might you have overreach boots on all fours??

^ This....

I did meet some people who thought the boots were specifically support boots. Perhaps that's what she thought they were too.

I've seen this a few times in XC. I think some people do this if they have a horse with a sloppy hind end. I would imagine it helps to protect their corinet band from splitting on impact.

I just looked up Laura Bechtolsheimer on Google. I didn't realize she was a dressage rider, oops

In this case, maybe she is protecting a fungal infection or an injury of some sort... or maybe she IS just ignorant.

Some horse back feet will step on each other maybe that is what she was protecting

Yeah that could be the case, but usually from what I've seen, Dressage riders will put rubber rings around their ankles to deter this action.

I could see them puting foot protection on all fours during schooling, but not during or after competition.

I have seen some dressage horses step on themselves as they are sidepassing. Or whatever fancy name they use for the horses doing that move.
