    OP, I have 4 for sale that were hardly used, pm me if you want to check out pics, they're at least $20 per pair cheaper than you would pay for them brand new and I think I used them a total of 3 times. They are size small though so they only fit a select group ;)

    With borth my horses I use the Thinline Cobra Support Boots for most schooling flatwork and the Thinline Sport Boots for jumping and galloping. The Cobra ones are similar to SMBs. I also use bell boots (Professional Choice) on my TB since he tends to overreach. I love the Thinline brand because they mold to my horse's legs, don't absorb water or dirt, don't slip (even in rainy NC), and are super easy to clean.

    I don't like using polo wraps very much for riding, due to the fact they can come undone and that can turn into a total nightmare. I usually use polos for trailering short distances. Also because riding in an arena or in a pasture with polos is an invitation for dirt and things to get in between the polo and their skin. And lastly, it's easy to either wrap polos either to tightly (and cut off circulation) or too loosely (and have them slip or come off). Hope this helps!
