good jumping boots for keeping legs cool
 
ok, this is not the same old "what boots are good for jumping' kind of thread.

i'm looking for good jumping boots [preferably open front, but please any reccomendations on and type of jumping boot] that are good for keeping the horses legs cool.

i have heard that it is bad for their legs to heat up a lot under jumping boots, but i would like my mare to wear them on hard surfaces and when jumping higher.

any reccomendations ?
thanks =]

these are the boots ive been thinking about getting

I think Thinline boasts that their boots don't heat up a horse's legs. Just know they are not cheap and have not tried them. I did see something new in the latest Dover catalog about some boots that allow for air flow. I'm at work not, but I'll see what brand they are and post again tomorrow.
