Splint Boots and Duct Tape??

Hey guys,
So I'm an eventer and want to add a little fun to my cross-country colors. I recently bought some tye-dye duct tape that I thought would be great to put on my splint boots, as I've heard a lot of people do this. However, I'm not exactly sure the proper way to do this. Do you have to use new duct tape with each use? Where exactly do you put the tape? Should it be tight, loose, etc.? Please help! Thanks.

Yep, new duct tape each time. You tape around the straps to ensure they stay put through water complexes, mainly. It's not tight but not loose, just enough to keep the straps secure... if that makes sense.

I don't use them, but I'd imagine they'd be just as tight as your boots. The tape is to keep them secure, not strangle the leg.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
