Hind boots neccessary??

I am going to enter a few reining classes this year (probably once a month during the summer) and I will be practicing reining manuvers in a stonedust/sand ring. Is it necessary to put hind boots on my horse if we are only going to be showing a couple times at local shows? Please let me know!

YES. Would you play basketball in street shoes?

It takes all of a min. To put on leg gear front and back and for that amount of time to keep a horse from getting hurt is a small price. If all you are doing is light riding meaning no stopping or turning you can get away with out using leg gear. However when I start stopping the rears go on and I always have fronts on.

I don't know what kind of boots you need for reining, but there are SMB boots and knock offs on chicks saddlery in the $40 - $50 range. There are also skid boots for $25.

This might sound stupid...sorry I'm new at reining...but this is what I'm thinking...leather skid boots on the hind legs, sport boots on the front and bell boots on the front. Is that good?? And do I have to buy sport boots for the back legs?

When I worked for a big-name reiner EVERY ride required leather skid boots in back, sports boots or thick polos with bell boots on front. Even if I was just loping to keep 'em fit while the boss was away at a show. Would occasionally use polos or hock boots on the back for our really low, deep sliders.

Also when your spinning at faster speeds, an upturned bell boot around a front leg sitting/resting above the splint boot (splint boot will keep it up over the knee - but because its a bell the horse can still move) will save the horse from crossing over and accidentally whacking itself and getting hurt and not wanting to spin
