Best combo is Weaver Leather skids on the back. I prefer the velcro ones but you can get buckle ones too. Then SMBs in the front. Bells for practice and Duct Tape for shows for their feet.
Some horses do need the bells over the knees but usually only on one depending on how they turn. All mine step fare enough back and out to not need them but if the horse does need them the bells work 100 times better then knee boots as knee boots will keep the horse to restrained to turn properly.
