I have the newer version of the SMB's-I think they are called Elite.....they are a bit lighter weight, so hold even less heat-LOVE them!

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

For practice I just put on some good ol' splints, but if I'm doing heavy word I have some Legacy front boots, and I use leather skids on the back.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I have a pair of SMB elites for everyday riding and groundwork. I got them used (perfect condition though) so i don't care if they get heavily worn. For lessons, shows, or when I am out and about with my horses i have front and back legacy boots which i love also.

When i am riding english i use front and back roma boots that i bought, not the best brand in the world. But good for what i do.

I had a pair of Professionals 1st Choice, they look a lot like the SMB's, almost identical, but only cost me $35. But, the dogs chewed them up :/

Anyways, I was wondering...do the SMB's hold a lot of heat in? When I put the offbrand boots on I would take them off after a semi-hard workout and Nova's legs would be sweaty under them. Do the SMB's do the same??
