They're nice boots, not my TOP favorite, but not the worst.I personally stick to my leather open-fronts, go bare, or use my SMB's... Depends on the day or the horse.. But I have several Pony Clubber friends who use the Roma boots and they love them..

Congrats on the new item. =)

I've never owned SMB's but I've been on horses who's owners demanded that I put them on. And I thought they were nice, but they retain water very easily. Guess it depends on what sport you do.

I don't like the Roma's for two reasons: A) they have fleece. and B) They are open fronts. I really don't see the point in open fronts at all. Why not protect the horse's legs all the way around

My vote is for Woof boots

See, I don't see the point of Open Fronts either - they have become such a big fad, for what? If you have a horse that tucks and avoids the fences already, what's the point?

I actually tend to love fleece. Then again i'm a little odder than most haha. They'll be fine for what you want and they should hold up well. =)

I've never tried those before! But they look like they'd hold up well, you'll just have to make sure you wash them.

I have these that I absolutely LOVE! :) They're neoprene lined with a tendon support. Got them for about $30 when they usually go for around $130!
