Best Most Effective Overreach Boots
 
I have a Half-Arab with show shoes on the front and he's pulled the right front off twice, this time tearing a good bit into the hoof. He wears Professionals Choice overreach boots 24/7 -- is there a better choice for overreach boots? He was in a large, now an extra large, and he still manages to flip off a shoe. Any suggestions on highly effective boots are welcome.

I use RES Equine Bell Boots. They are very durable andI have yet to pull any shoes with them on! They have a website www.resboot.com oh they also have a replaceable Velcro that you can change out with cool colors.:lol:

the only bell boots i will leave on 24/7 are the rubber/gum pull-on ones. i love these:
KL Select Italian Bell Boots - Bell Boots from SmartPak Equine

but the cheaper version work just as well (just harder to get on ime):
Centaur Pull on Bell Boots - Bell Boots from SmartPak Equine

I cannot stand the rubber ones, you have to be a body builder to put them on.

I have something like this, I love the little nugget (technical term) that's in them to stop them from spinning around

Professional's Choice Ballistic Overreach Boots

but we're horsepeople! we're supposed to be insanely strong. ;) this is, however, why i like the KL pull-ons because they are a bit thinner/stretchier at the top making it SOOOOO much easier to pull them on. i just put a new pair on my gelding on monday and it took maybe 20 seconds a boot? whereas my mare has the regular $10 pull-ons and it took forever to get those dumb things on. when they wear out (i leave them on until they die basically) i think i'll spend the money and get her the KL ones assuming they come in a small enough size for her (she wears 00 shoes whereas my gelding is in 3.5).

I can't find pull ons big enough for my horse and he doesn't even have big feet!
I swear by woof wear for turn out. They have kevlar bell boots which are virtually indestructible. Their overreach boots are nice as well.
