Will see if I have a chance to pull it out today when I am out there. I have a few things I HAVE to get done over the next few days.

Also check out my edit above about the boots.

Also if you do decide to sell those boots let me know and what price you want for them. I am in a need for some work boots for the horses and do not want to buy new or pay a lot and do not want to use my show stuff. They get beat up so bad at times.
Will do, NRHA-but like I said, my trainer doesn't feel they have as much support, altho they are well padded for the turns, etc. I do love how easy they are. It is impossible to put them on wrong.

Ya I am not so much looking for support but more protection to keep the horses from hitting themselves. You should see some of my boots from when the horses start to learn to turn. One has a huge rip down the front. Keep it to show people why they need some type of protection.

I will also say that my trainer does not think they give as much support as the SMB's or Classic equines, so , again, mine get used minimally, in fact I am considering selling them. THey are also about the same price as SMB's, so I will go back to the Elites.
I've got a pair of solid white for showing and I've seen solid black on their website. For training I have black boots trimmed in teal, just to add a kick of color for fun. When choosing boot colors to show in, if your horse is a good spinner, go with white to help draw the eye to the legs and show off the moves. Otherwise black to downplay any mistakes.

I can't speak for a direct comparison of Pegasus against the Elites. I haven't tried those. Maybe when you get your Elites you can give us a review to see how they compare?

I already have one pair of elites and love them. THey are not as thickly padded as the Pegasus, so if it is wet out, they do not hold water (as well as when we are out on a trail, since I also do trails riding with my guy). THe Elites DO hold a bit of sand, tho, which the Pegasus do not. I have only the one pair of Pegasus, with red trim, and I like the ease of use a lot. THat, to me is the big advantage. Being a person who tends to sell stuff and get new-the Pegasus are sort of unknown, and they will not hold the value a pair of SMB's do. I will be anxious to see how the new ones I just ordered (as mentioned in an earlier post here) compare. THey are substantially less expensive than either the Pegasus or Elites. SInce my guy is NOT a stellar turner, at least to yet, we are going to stick with the black.
