Question about polo wraps & boots...
 
Are they real picky about leg protection in open hunter shows? Do I have to have a certain kind? I have black Airboots -- XT new Product intro

And I have black polos. Are those acceptable for hunter eq and jumping classes?

Now, I've never done a large, rated, breed, whatever show (so take this with a grain of salt... :wink:), but every hunter division class I've ever ridden in in 4-H or tiny local open shows stipulated no boots or wraps on the flat, bell-boots only in poor weather as the judge or show manager allows.

That makes sense. Thank you!

no boots on the flat... normally something like this for the jumping:

For hunters and dressage - no boots or polos are allowed, unless the footing is very poor and the ground jury has allowed them for safety reasons.
For equitation and jumpers - boots are allowed, not clear on what kind though. Check with your local area group.
