I, personally, am against the SMB support boot. I have heard great things about them, and horrible things about them.
Pros- they support
They provide a little more protection than the standard boot
Cons- They get waterlogged(or so I have heard)
Some horses need the support on their joints(IE- ones that have had problems in the past, upper level horses) but some also become dependent on the boot and could potentially get hurt if the boot is not used in a workout.
I personally use Woof Boots. I LOVE them and are GREAT for every jumping phase.
Jumping a horse = Getting wings!
