    Yep, open splint boots with bell boots, front and back. Also brush boots on the back are a good thing!

    wow! Thanks guys! I really don't know much b/c me and my horse are going to be learning how to jump together, so thanks!
    Goodluck!! that's great :)

    I'll probably use tendon boots too, since my horse bowed his tendon a while back (what is it w/ TBs and bowed tendons! Lol!) I found some bright blue bell boots too! I think i'll get leather tendon boots and bright blue bell boots

    Polos are ok, they protect the whole leg from scratches and it protects their tendons a bit, but I love these open fronts:

    The best way to go is probably Bell Boots and Open Front leather boots with sheepskin inside if he has sensitive legs. I have the sheepskin lining inside my leather boots. The leather on the outside is VERY supportive. The Leather boots are expensive but they will last you for years! You wont have to buy any more boots for a while. Hope that helps and Good Luck Jumping! It is quite fun:)

    I have a pair of open front jumping boots....i find that they are pretty good. I also have a pair of splint boots.

    I generally use my open front jumping boots for everyday riding....i was wondering if that was ok?

    Good luck with learning how to jump.....tell us about your first attempt

    Yer theres nothing wrong with using open fronts for everyday work, just note that they wont protect against bumps and bruising.

    yeah.....i do have my splints if we go somewhere 'rough' and I usually carry them with me in my 'pack' (splints, food, water, a carrot, my phone, a leadrope and a hoofpick in a little bag)
