Greylite, Cougar and Hula Girl all have front and back boots I bought second hand eight bucks a set at our local tack shop. Fit like a dream, are in good condition and didn't cost an arm and a leg! It's a good way to go in my opinion if you're trying to get a feel for what works best for your horse. I realized boots with open fronts don't work for us through that. I like the look but not the function.

^Might I ask why you don't like open fronts?

What's to like about Open Fronts? They are just a glorified Splint Boot. The only purpose of Open Fronts is to teach the horse to respect the fence while protecting the legs from knocks.

If you have a horse that already respects the fences and tucks, what's the point of having them ? Unless you want to fit in with the "crowd" and follow the "Fad".

Just because everyone else uses them, even when they don't need them - doesn't mean we have to follow.

I think they look nicer in stadium than my birght blue boots. I feel like they are flashing neon signs on his legs LOL! I'm really big with respecting the judge and such, so yeah. And Geof does hang his legs sometimes(never knocks) but I do want him to feel it when he hits!

I used to use Eskadron open fronts http://www.paddocksaddlery.com/prodimg/102593.jpg with Ginisee. She started hanging her legs and dropping rails with them. So we took them off and she competed fine in SJ without boots at all. That being said, I never competed her above Novice.

Uma goes into stadium with regular brushing boots like this: http://www.horses-ponies.co.uk/image...ng%20boots.jpg and her Woof boots in back: http://www.horsetackco.com/images/sportsbrushboot.jpg

Demi goes with her Sabre XC boots on. I haven't found any others that fit her tiny little pony legs. haha

awwww tiny pony legs are the hardest! Blue is between a C/S and F/H in EVERYTHING, it is SO hard to find stuff to fit her!

Open fronts get random twigs in them easily when out in the bush.
