Well I ride english, so I don't know that you want my opinion, but here it is. :
When I jump I use open fronts on the front and polo wraps on the back. I used to always use splint boots when I schooled. But now I'm pretty sure (correct me if i'm wrong..) split boots are cheapest and easiest to put on the horse, not so much protecting and supporting. I hate polo wraps because they're complicated and so easy to mess up, if you aren't sure how to properly apply. And SMB boots.. i've never personally owned them, but i've heard many good things. What are they used for in terms of protection and why EXACTLY would you reccommend them?
