WOOF BOOTS ARE AMAZING! They are the best boots, they offer alot of protection, and they are extremly easy to clean! Just dip them in a bucket of water, rub the dirt off with your hands and set them in the sun to dry. Everyone uses them at my eventing barn, and alot of Olympians use them, so you know they have to be good!

I consider Eskadons as the very best.

Easy to clean and wash and afford way more protection especially around the fetlock. Should the horse overstep they offer much better protection. Woof boots offer none from what I see.

Although this is a UK site they are easily available in around the world.

Yes, but they are also extremly expensive, and are usless if they are ever considering XC. And Woof Boots offer full protection.

First they are not EXTREMELY expensive and second they do have XC ones.

The thing is WHY have a horse unless you are willing to protect it in what you make it do.

I have purchased Eskadon front boots for the $85.00 to $100.00 range new. I have also found them at tack swaps etc for the $25.00 to $40.00 range and just as good.

Maybe I CARE for the safety and protection of my horse and will pay what I need to to keep him safe. It is called good horse husbantry.

Um I DO CARE about my horses, thanks. I CARE about my horse and that is why I got the best boots for her. They offer some of the best protection boots can offer. Price doesn't matter. Oh and now half the olympians don't care about their horses, and I don't care about my horses, and my trainer doesn't care about her horses, and my friends don't care about their horses, and practically all eventers don't care about their horses!
