Polos Or Splint Boots?

I've just started my mare jumping on the line (she thinks it's great fun!) and I was wondering what would be better for her to jump in; polos, or splint boots?

Splint boots. They are much more breathable and offer better protection if your horse hits a rail while jumping.

I dabble with jumping (mostly doing dressage) so I'm more likely to lean towards polos unless the weather is hot.

Open front boots would actually be the best. They offer protection for the tendon while still allowing the horse to feel it if they hit a rail.

I would use them if I had them, but unfortunately for right now, it's polos or splints.

If you're only options are splits or polos I"d go with splints. As countercanter said, you want a green horse to be able to feel when they hit a rail. It's important for them to respect the poles when they're learning what to do with their legs.

I use the Ventch SMBs on my horse, we just do low level, lower than 2'5. I understand being able to feel the rail, but if your jump is not high you should be okay :)
