Boots for jumping?

What boots do you use for jumping purposes? My horse has kinda sensitive legs and I want to get him something before I jump. Are polos okay?

Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

Polos don't give the right type of support. You want to look at an open-front splint boot :)

polos don't give much support but they can give protection. I use open fronts for show jumping, but for work at home or out in the field (like x-country) I use woof all purpose boots. I think they are wonderful.

These are what I use for show jumping

These are what I use for home

Hope this helps

I also use open front jumping boots. I have a pair of black Eskadron ones for schooling and a pair of leather ones for showing.

I have a pair of open fronts (that are horse sizes and I ride a pony with tiny legs...this was when I had my mare).
Polos probaly won't give the support you need (and if you EVER try to use them, make SURE you know how to put them on correctly).

You can never be safer then sorry with jumping, that's why I suggest boots on all horses; no matter the "shape" (of coruse, for example), size, or level of jumping.
Although it reminds me that I need to buy the pony-kins some boots.
