And you should only use porters if you can wrap perfectly. Think professional level. You can really injure the horse's legs very easily if you wrap those incorrectly.

Best boot for xc in my opinion is the Nunn Finer American Style. Fantastic stuff. But, at the lower levels you don't really need that much boot. Never hurts though.

Find the lining that works best for your horse. Fleece/sheepskin is normally avoided on xc because it soaks up the water, but some horses need boots lined with this because they're allergic to neoprene or other liner materials.

Thanks guys, I will be doing beginner but I want the best boots. Even if we look like total idiots in top level boots, we are both new to it. So he will think they knock like polls, but he is a very smart horsie!

I was thinking, even if you wrap, wouldn't you want something to school in at home? I definatly wouldn't want to use all that money on wrapping all the time!

Well sometime soon I will be investing in:

Some Event Boots
Some Brush Boots
Some Splint Boots

Because I can get a good deal, on them and I would like to try them all out, now to decide colours.

I would get black, then you can wrap different color tape around them for XC, and black looks nice in stadium

I remember when I was doing BN, water was optional. Never a jump in, but you can canter through it if you choose, if not - you can bypass it. Water was never manditory at any event I rode when I was doing BN - until you got to N, then you had to do water.

Man, wish that was the case when I was at BN! We would have been saved from the big E many times!

Maybe Michigan is different? Rated courses here, the lowest level is Novice. Another BN rule here is no oxers. I remember even reading it in the rule book for course designers - no oxers. Interesting.
