We are working with a horse that has some issues of founder. We worry about trying to protect the ligaments and legs while riding and want to reduce soreness after long rides. The horse is in a great training and hoof care program. We had a couple of people suggest the boots, but I am not sure if they are worth the investment. If it really can protect the ligaminets that come up the back of the legs then it may be worth it.
What I need to know is how does these boots work, are they worth it, and what are your experiences with the different brands. I also need to know how to properly fit these boots so that I don't end up purchasing an extra pair because I bought the wrong size. The horse is a normal size quarter type horse that weighs about 1200 lbs.
