I use open fronts on my showjumper and it really helps him
If your boy does have a problem with over reaching I suggest you put bell boots on him. .
With open fronts it protects them from the hard groung and hurting themselves but laso if they do hit a pole they know because they can still feel it
If you could try to get hard case one that the outside is got a hard covering wetherbeeta has gel ones that have a gel inside and a hard outside it just hasmore protection that's the reason I like them. . =]

when I jump my horse I use regular slint boots and rubber bell boots. The splint boots reduce tingling when the horse lands, the rubber bell boots protect the horses hoofs from geting hurt when it hit the jump!

what about crosscountry? I've been told that open fronts are no good for protection from knocks from the fences. So does that mean I should use the splint boots?
