Roma Open Front Boots
I was just wondering if anyone on here has experience with these boots. I just recently bought a pair because me and my horse are doing more jumping. any thoughts on theses are wonderful :D

heres the exact pair i have: Roma Fleece Lined Open Front Boots

I personally don't like them because they don't have the gel insert that let's the feltlock flex, and I HATE fleece....

I prefer SMBs to any other type of boots. They are alot more versitile. I would however use a harder type jump boot if the horse is known to kick itself.

Quite wrong. Many top level riders use them and like them

^^ i've jumped 4 foot something with them w/o a problem. You see eventers using them for XC all the time.

i barrel race with SMB boots =P and i use shedrow open front boots for jumping. I like those boots but i think keeping the fleece clean would bug me ahah.

i like them, except the fleece ! do they come with neoprene ?

i personally dont like smb boots because they hold water & get pretty hot.
