Never owned them or had them in my hands but I have seen them at races...They just look ridiculous to me....

I love hearing your opinion SH.:) lol.. You just get right down to the point!

I don't understand how they offer more proctection like it says. Just looks like it covers up higher on the horse. doesn't look too supportive.. IMO..

They look fine to me.

All brands are going to say they protect better.

And all boots are basically the same material with the same design and concept in mind. Not a whole lot of difference, you can advocate a certain brand all you want, but they all do the same thing.

Why would you want the velcro wrap on the top of the horses leg...isn't the point to support the leg not put pressure on the top. (get what im saying?) Anyways they look flimsy to me

Those look like they were designed by a ten year old..and made by him too..

Looks like poor design and cheap material.

To me, they look like someone tried to make a sport boot out of polo wrap material.


Personally, I would not buy them.



I stick with my Professional's Choice SMB 3 boots.

It is not designed to be a support boot, it says in the description that is for preventing injuries due to strikes.

Well then it's even worse IMO. If I wanted something to protect from hits, I would us some good ProTech splint boots....

LOL! I agree, Bar F products aren't worth a sh!t, IMO.
