    Booting Advice

    Ok, I'm the type of person that would rather invest in preventative/protection things than possibly pay for not using them later down the line.

    Many people use protective boots when working with their horses, I have in the past myself used them and liked them.

    My question is; If I wanted to get protective boots for my yearling what would be the best kind?

    We havenít started anything yet; but will be fairly soon. We will be doing very little lunging but Iím not against some minor lunging when done for a short period of time (walk/jog), and are we looking at mostly ponying him from another horse and working on showmanship/ground stuff with limited circle work.

    All will be done for a short period of time, building as he gets fitter and older until I start riding him; which will depend on how he looks and matures over time.

    What type of boots should I be looking at? What boots do you like/dislike and why?

    Hmmm, this might get moved to Tack/Equipment lol

    I'm not sure I would bother with the boots. If all your going to be doing is walk and trot and some ponying then your horse should be able to do it without injuring himself.

    I like plain neoprene splint boots, especially when I'm trail riding. They seem to be less of a pain to size correctly than SMB-type boots. I do have a pair of TSC's version of an SMB, but I don't use them as often as the splints, mainly only if I'm doing a gymkhana type event and I expect to be doing tighter turns or dealing with obstacles.

    Being that he is 1 I wouldn't worry about it right now- like Kevin said- as long as you aren't doing to much. He is still young and growing so you shouldn't be pushing him to far anyways :)

    When he is older I LOVE my SMB Elite's
