Shipping boots

Any suggestions? Did anyone buy those from Dover? I want to buy, but I'm afraid horse may step on boot while in trailer, pull part off and freak out (I bought very cheap ones while while back and run into this issue - stepping on).

I have a set from Dover... they work very well. Never had any problems with slipping. I purchased the set with a LOT of straps - I wouldn't do that again, but would spring the extra money for the set with 3 straps. It's tough to get all the straps on/off in a proper and timely fashion if your horse is dancing around at a show.

Don't get the Dover ones!! Crap! Very hard to put on and take off since the velcro sticks to everything except what you want it to stick to. I recently got the Amigo boots and am very happy with them. Nice soft fleece lining, only 3 velcro things on each boot, very easy to put on and take off. Note- the red ones are really pink.

Actually, no I don't. MB said she has. I going to go to Dover hopefully this week. I don't care about the velcro (I'm pretty good about it, I use cashel wraps at the moment with bunch of velcros on them), just if they going to slip off or not. That cheap junk from horse.com I got several years back was what it was - junk.

BTW, I'm thinking about non-fleece ones for easier clean up. :)

I've always used the SMB boots by Professional choice. They're a little more costly but I've had them for over 12 years now. BTW, I don't trailer with boots - ever.

iride, I had accident just last week. While I keep wraps on fronts when trailer it was lesson learned. So I want all 4 now.

Thanks, MIE! I hope they have all different ones in store so I could try them.

I splurged and bought the woof trailering boots a while ago. They are the large and I don't find the hind boots to be tall enough, I wrap my horses back legs with 14" no bows so its not like he's super leggy. But otherwise they are quite nice if they fit your horse. I only use them for short distance trips as I prefer wrapping for anything over an hour or so (which around here is pretty much everything). I would be tempted to try the horseware boots first before the woof boots.
Good luck!
