I'm with Eventerdrew 100% - regardless.
What would you prefer? To have a horse that respects the fences, but has splints or chips or bruising that impedes their progress. Or a horse that is protected by having boots and bells on, that sometimes hits the fence here and there?
I personally, would rather have a protected horse - and I have been reamed by Olympic Level Eventers just as Drew has, for clincing with them without protection on my horses legs.
These boots are designed for a reason, to protect. I for one, would rather have my horse protected, to aid in their longevity.
