I have Woofs (front for flat, all 4 for jumping). I really like them (those velcro system is very nice), but like with all neoprene boots they look already pretty wear out (I use them for couple years already). I've heard Nunn Finer ones are very nice too (but they are more pricey).

I like both Woof & Nunn Finer, but Nunn Finer is a little higher quality, in my experience.

I've had Woofs that rip & fray over time, and none of my Nunn Finer have done anything remotely close to that. Worth the money!

I would avoid the fleece just because they get so dirty so easily and hold a lot of water/take a while to dry.

^ Yes, I second "no fleece". It also adds up heat to the legs, which is not healthy IMO.

I wonder how good the leather boots are. I've never tried those.

I have those. They are great. I used to use them for everyday use, but then got a cheaper pair that I could use so that those don't go to waste. They're great! My horse events at Novice level and she runs XC in those in front and behind!

:) Sweet!

I've found a pair for around $50 so I think I might go for it! Better than being bare as he's still figuring out his feet under saddle :P
