I bought some this summer after everyone suggested them and they are miserable to keep on. They are so stiff and if you don't make them so tight that they cut off circulation then they slide down! I have to get my coach to look at them.. maybe I was just putting them on wrong.

Opinions everyone?
I wanna get a pair for the horse I'm leasing but I'm unsure if they are good or not? I don't wanna fork out the money and then realise they were not worth it.

I would definitely invest in some.

I bought a pair of SMB II's for my mare last year and absolutely LOVE them! Wenever I go for a long, rough ride, I use them... they're the best! I'm currently saving up to buy a pair for my gelding because his leather protective boots are old and he's outgrowing them...

I would do some research into them ;) preferably independent studies..forums such as COTH have good information about SMBs on them..but of course Professional's Choice funded research is for them...

I may get some for jumping in future. However I'd never use them for long time or on trails. They create the pressure on leg, which is not all that healthy in long run.

Ffs they don't cause problems in futer!!! Get your facts right....more people like them than the ones that don't.. at end of day ANY ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY boots even cheap sw ones can cause injuries so not just smb. Funny hoe some people are just so quick to judge without knowing full facts etc.

I love them and wouldnt change it!! Been using it on my horse for past 3 years with no probs...been eventing, sj, hacking, beach rides etc with no probs at all...dont slip down after go thru waters etc etc. my friends uses them too & her horse had tendon injury, has been using it for like 5 years with no probs too!!! So yehhh

In my experience, the fit is the important thing...not the brand. Depending on the shape/size of your horse's foot, some brands fit much better than others. If they don't fit well, you'll always have problems.
