Oh ghee, now I am torn on the matter of getting boots. See, that's why I originally posted this thread because I wanted to make sure that I was protecting my girl. In the past she strained a ligament (nothing to do with jumping or riding) and I just want to make sure that I am doing everything I can to protect her. I've read many times about how the shock of pressure from hitting the ground on landings can do damage too.
I would love to read more opinions on what members think of the matter.
