dalmar boots?
just got some as a present, any reviews/cautions?

I really love them. Just make sure you put them on correctly. The first few times I had to use them I found them confusing to put on, lol.

Are those the ones with the turquoise air flow things on them? If so, I've heard good things.

Yes I love them! I have both front air flows and ankle boots

They're awesome! I borrowed a friends a few times, now hoping to get a pair for Christmas.

I've read that in a lot of them the strike plate can splinter. However, it hasn't happened to me personally.

I just bought a pair and then was reading the reviews. I have seen more bad then good. I heard the carbon part shatters and horses have had to be put down because they hit the carbon part and it shattered into there tendons. I just had to have my first horse put down due to injury, no way am i keeping those!!!! If there are 10+ indicants that I have read in the last 20min, not sure i want to take a chance with my new horse. I have a pair of NW Professionals Choice SMB Elite 4 Pack Sports Medicine Boots Pink Purple Large | eBay in hot pink, pretty sure Im sticking with them.

I have read many bad reviews, and if I were you, I'd go with woof wear, it's a great brand and very protective

I returned them, because im not taking ANY chances with my horses legs. I ended up just adding to my pile of woof boots(between me and my trainer we must have 12 pairs) he just tears through them in one season, so i was looking for something more sturdy :/

I had bought these boots and returned them after reading reviews. I actually bought the classic equine legacy boots. Other people at my barn have them and LOVE them and my trainer highly recommends them. Maybe you can try those!
