open front boots
ok, so i recently decided to buy these:
the top of the boots is straight across... http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p...orse/204-2.jpg
then i was searching Dover, and found these: Open-Front Boots - Dover Saddlery
(wouldn't let me copy and paste a pic) anyway the dover boots have a curved top.
Do you think that the curved top makes much of a difference? as in more comfortable& allow more movement? In your opinion would it be worth it to return the ones i bought and buy the Dover open fronts?

I have heard that some boots give the horse a bowed tendon if they don't have Flexi-Soft IDK if it is just Eskadorns or not...

i heard that too, and i too wasn't sure if it was just Eskadrons. I don't have the money to spend $130 for Eskadrons though.

haha, I think I am going to get some leather ones from Bit of Britian for mine, sorry I can't be of much help!

The first pair of open fronts I ever had were romas and I never had a problem with them - and mine didn't even have fuzzy fleece linings. I don't think it will be a problem unless the top of the boot is at the very base of the knee.
Can you put up a picture of them on your horse?

sure, i'll take one tomorrow :-)

I'm not much of a help on this but I like the Roma's because they look fuzzy! :)

Great! It looks like he has enough clearance between the top of the boot and his knee to me. I think he'll be fine :] Just keep an eye out just in case though.

I have these Roma boots. I love them for schooling. I would keep them if you are still deciding. Also i have never had a problem with the plastic shell
