WHAT KIND OF BOOTS?? Hellpppp

I would like to purchase woof boots for my 4 year old. But idk what model to buy for him? I want general boots. Like jumping, trails, riding in fields, or competing cross country. Which ones should I get? Like all purpose or brush or splint or galloping???? I'm totAlly lost on which ones to get!

Thanks:)

I have Woof A/P boots I'm using when riding in arena (I use all 4 when jump and just fronts when do flat). Dover Saddlery | Woof All-Purpose Horse Boots.

P.S. Don't use boots on trails if you going to cross the water.

^ Why not? If they're going to cross water on a XC course what difference does it make on the trail? Woof's are made to not hold alot of water in them for that reason.

Everyone on my eventing team has some sort of Woof boot. Either the double locking galloping or the regualr AP. I have the AP Brushing boot and it's MARVALOUS! :)

I'd think they should absorb (looking at the material they are made of). I never tried though (I just wipe them off to keep clean). Also when I go into the water on my qh (on trail, of course) she's stuck there for good 15 mins, playing, splashing it around and all, so I'm pretty positive they'll be full of water by the time she's done.

I gallop through water on XC and they don't get soaked. Yes, they're damp, but not wet wet.

The velcro can come off in the water (that's why you tape them for xc), if you don't spend a whole lot of time in though they should be okay :)
