Open front boots...
 
What do you think of these open front jumping boots?

If I get them, I either want the black ones or the blue ones.

Just a picture to show the blue ones!

I just want opinions.

They seem fine to me. What are you wanting to use them for?

amightytarzan5 06-27-2008 06:59 PM

Just pleasure jumping the horse I might get. He has bowed his left tendon before and I just want some support on his legs. I highly doubt I'm going to show though.

I like the JSB brand. Those look like nice boots.

They look pretty good!! :)

Okay! Should I get blue or black? Most of my tack (saddle pads, halter, lunge line, etc) is all ice blue. My saddle and stuff is black. I'm not sure wether to get black or blue.

I personally would get black because if you do decide to show then they would be acceptable and also if you ever start hating ice blue then you won't have to worry.

True. Does black look good on dark bay horses? I'm getting a Wintec b/c it's all I can afford right now, and all they come in is black.

I think the black would be best because if you ever get sick of your colour than your boots won't look funny with whatever new stuff you buy. I wish I had gotten black instead of my mauvey-purpley colour lol. They look like very nice boots too!

They look good. As long as you don't plan on using them for intense work because the velcro may fray and deteriorate. I would go for black because it is more versatile. If it is support for a bowed tendon during recreational jumping you want, polos are a cheap option to consider. While maybe not as strong or supportive they do support and prevent further injuring the leg and are much cheaper (and you can get any color you want)
