Mine are really old but I bought the weatherbeeta ones and I still have them probably 10 or 15 years later.

Looks like the price has gone down since I got them...

Those Weatherbeeta one's are quite nice as well. A friend has a few pair of those for her horses, and before I got my boots, she allowed me to borrow hers. Very nice, easy to get on, easy to get off, very protective IMO.

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!

Thanks, anebel! I use cushing wrap (?) from Cashel on front legs at the moment (also from Dover). Never heard Woof makes those boots (and since my horses are smaller I don't think I have sizing problem). I believe Dover doesn't carry them, but then who knows. I'll try all they have down there!

FP, how do you clean them?? I mean fleece should be dirty in no time (at least my wraps are - after just one ride). Plus my paint manages to mess them all in poop.

Just an update... Got shipping boots today (the Pro ones, not cheapey). Failed... Happened what I was afraid going to happen - she managed to step on them doesn't matter how tight/high I placed them. So will be returning and going back to wraps (I going to buy longer ones for back legs in addition to those I use on front)...
