Tendon boot sizing

Hi there!

I won a pair of Pfiff neoprine tendon boots (Jay! ), but they only have it in full and pony sizes whereas my Star wears a cob size (he's 15.2 hh maximum and not really stocky). They sent me the full as they said it's not that big, but I fetched them from the post office and they are huge (they look like Warmblood size to me). Do any of you know the Pfiff tendon boots and whether the pony may fit him? I am considering to ask them if they could send me the pony (I'll cover all postage and packaging both ways) and then I'll send the full size back to them.

I would appreciate any insight, thank you!

They are the PFIFF Tendon boots, bicoloured (Article number: 101410). Not sure whether I may post the link or not. :)

I've attached a photo of the two of us as reference (and who can resist posting photos of their horses, teehee). I am 1.72 m (5' 7.7" or something like that).

I've taken some photos today and tried my best to make sure the boot and his leg is the same distance from the camera so it's as accurate as possible. To me it looks like it will go too high at the back of his leg approaching his knee. I don't want to fit it on him as I am still hoping that I may exchange them. Any thoughts?

I measured his leg and I think the boot should between those two orange lines (or thereabouts). That's 23 cm. And the boot is 26 cm. So I just want to make sure, did I put the orange lines in the right place? Even if it's one cm off, it doesn't look like they will fit. :/
