Woof makes a fantastic quality all around boot. They're great for horses that interfere but I don't love them for jumping, simply because they aren't open front. When a horse i ride (particularly a green one) hits a rail i like for them to feel it so they respect the pole and jump up a little more next time. Some horses don't care about hitting rails if their legs are too padded up. Just a thought. I prefer eskadrons or Tboots.

I LOVE woofs! And they do make a FABULUS open front boot, I honestly don't see a difference in them and the Eskadrons(except the price!) I use my woof's for Stadium and XC. I am getting the open fronts and the ankle boots for Stadium, they just look better and they let the horse feel the rail.

i love the Dover Pro ones .. i have 2 full sets (well had cause one my friends dog got a hold of the front boots so i have 1.5 sets) and they are great! Really easy to wash- just throw them in the washering machine and they are good as new again.

I jump in Eskadrons... basically because they are the only boot that fits my horse right. Dover makes a similar boot but Dover's boot as well as Hampa and other hard shell neoprene lined open front boots are slightly longer than the Eskadrons and therefore don't fit my horse. I like dressage sport boots for flatting but I know tons of people who jump in them as well.

I do like Woof boots for general protection whilst riding but I don't favour them specifically for jumping. Go for some hard-shelled tendon boots for added protection for easily damaged tendons and ligaments, they need support!
