My question is- are shipping boots really that bad to use? The reason I'm asking is because I got my horse when in Germany and all they really ever used over there were shipping boots when trailering. I brought my horse to the states and the man who delivered her to me came up to me and bascially told me that I was stupid (he was not the nicest person in the world lol) for using shipping boots. He said I should use wraps instead and that he did not use the shipping boots because they were too dangerous. I never had a problem when using the boots before, I understand accidents can happen but I didn't realize boots were considered dangerous when shipping.
I'm just curious about the answer because I will be trailering my horse soon and don't want to use something that could be "dangerous" to my horse.
