Do you mean one of each? Or are you referring to some new product or something? Many of us with reiners use leg boots as well as bell boots-other disciplines do too. I am not really sure what you are asking.

I use SMB II Medicine Boots & Bell Boots on my young mare. She has a tendency to spaz out & throw her legs all over the place - I'd prefer she not catch herself while doing it. I'll also barrel race my gelding in splint boots + bell boots (or polos).

Are you considering using them for a certain reason? They're not really necessary if you're just every day riding or not doing anything extremely stressful.

No, they're a combination of both. It's only one piece of tack. I too have never heard of it before this weekend.

They look like this:

I feel like that since they are cheap they are going to reflect their cheapness too...

I'll stick to my Legacy/SMBs and my DLS/Protech bells.

Don't do it! I had a pair given to me and I absolutely hate them. They rub, they fit awkward, they slide....sure they are cheaper, but not in the long run.

Bleck. They just look cheap. Also don't look like they would fit correctly. If you're going to get something like that just spend the extra $$ to get separate items. You can get them separate for less than that.

Wintec Splint Boots $20 (surprisingly they've survived 3+yrs) + Davis No Turn Bell Boots $10 (clearanced at STL) = cheaper & better deal.

I was just asking because I picked up a pair for $5 at a fundraiser, I thought I might as well. I could always use a pair that I'm not afraid to get dirty.

And I'm not sure the brand, but they're not the same as the pic. I was just giving an example of the style.

Those suck..I had a pair of the Professional's Choice combo boots and hated them. They don't fit right, let a TON of dirt in, the bell boot part is soft like the boot and they shift a lot.
