What would be the best leg protection for me to use on my horse.i only trail ride but would still like to use something to protect his legs there are just so many diffrent styles and don't want to hurt him by using the wrong type and also how do you get your horse use to wearing them?And if this matters I don't know but I don't use shoes he gets barefoot trimmings.
I was looking for exactly the same thing, you know for trail riding and stuff. Check out the Sports Medicine Boots that Pro Choice has. Their really great.
To get you're horse used to them, well he may not need to get used to them, my horse did just fine. But, if you need to put them on and turn him out with them on for a little while. Keep an eye on him though. Lounging works as well. Its great to have boots on the trail, and these can even be used for trailering!!
I use Prof. Choice SMB ELITES!! This is different from just their SMB....This is their newest attempt and they are wonderful. They are not bulky and are very easy to put on. I would get your horse use to them through lunging though.
My horse is barefoot as well and kept tripping on the trail. This helped and he is doing less and less of it.
They are PRICEY!! So, it's an investment. For boots all around I paid $140. The reviews I read before purchase sayd they last for a couple of years if not longer....
