If you can get them, try the John Whittaker Tendon boots...they are fantastic, I use them and have never had a problem, they are a bit pricey but well worth it. You usually get them in an set; pair of fetlock boots for the hind and tendon boots for the fore, I wouldnt be without them.

those look very nice but I was kinda looking into one of these pairs since this is where we are making our next order from so what do you think would be best out of those boots?

I like the number 2 boots you listed - I prefer an open-front boot :)

#2. Open fronts are good

I would say #2 also
The medicine boots are nice but #2 are more protective

A good horse can never be a bad colour...
