Down here we go by USEA rules at every comp. Oxers are alowed at every level, even the 2' division I was in! And the water crossing was manditiory. Geof doesn't bat an eye at the water though, and I've done N water questions, so cantering through it really isn't that big a deal.

WOOF BOOTS. Great for both phases and affordable. Their the only boots I use. Tried different (much more expensive) brands before and they didn't stay in place like woof's do. Also easy to clean

Um- from an Aussie competitive perspective- ( I assume ur doing PC level or newcomers/intro )

A set of open front jump boots for showjumping ie. For $99 - once got a set for $55!!! Best buy ever- are roma competitors- great looking- and for those low levels they will be suitable for XC- and hard wearing I have a set that have lasted 7 yrs.


But if you want something flashier- McAllister open fronts are leather and cheap (sheepskin lined) bout 50 bucks a pair

I use- roma air vent series- the hoolograms on the back were a major draw for me!!! Haha i'm a sucker




As for XC-

Bandages are versatile- and they're cheap so you can get a few sets and change colours- you must get pads that wont rub though and be taught to put them on properly, they must be stitched and taped.

As for velcro/buckle boots my picks are:
Dalmar Eventer Boots


Prolite Event Boots


Roma Event Boots




Hope that's helpful- those event boots are in order of price too- roma being the cheapest

T-BOOTS! BY EQUIFIT! They are undoubtedly the BEST boots out there, and trust me, I've tried EVERYTHING! Here is their website: EquiFit, inc.. Their products are pricey but worth it.

If they are too pricey for you, I recommend Eskadron. They are my second choice. And my third is SMB Elite, although I wouldn't recommend those for cross country because they can be rather heavy when wet. I order my boots through Dover Saddlery.

Good luck!

Do not EVER use Open Fronts for CC. They are not acceptable what-so-ever out on a CC course with those solid fences. There is no reason, at all, to use Open Fronts.

For Stadium, fine - those fences fall down when knocked.

I still do not understand the "Fad" of the Open Front era in the Hunter/Jumper world. All they are - are glorified Splint Boots.

EVERYONE uses them, even when they don't need them - because they're a "Fad". I just don't get them *shrugs shoulders*. I understand that they are open in the front to "teach the horse" to tuck more, but beyond that, what's the deal?

If your horse respects the fences as it is and tucks as it is - what's the point of spending that much money on a boot, that is just a splint boot?

I personally use Sabre boots on the front and Woof single lock boots on back

Here are some Sabres.
LEG PROTECTION
Imported from England and a bit pricey but if you can find something similar it would be awesome. I've use them on horses from 15hh to 17hh and they've worked perfectly

The Sabres were somewhere around $125 for a whole set. Not unlike those new fangled N.E.W's The front ones are the only ones I use for Demi because the backs are SO LONG. They only fit on super large horses. So Uma gets the whole set. But they were AMAZINGLY well. I love the fetlock protection on the back. And the locking mechanisms on it are uncomparable. They are absolutely amazing. I won't use anything else.
