I have never used bell boots, I actually always looked at them as a rodeo piece of equipment. I just never needed them that I was aware of!
ANYWAY..... While trailriding with another couple a few weeks back, it was suggested that I get a pair because it would help my Spotted saddle horse gait a little smoother (she is not the smoothest) and would help her front feet. While riding with this know it all couple, I didn't want to sound stupid (which I am) so I didn't ask, but exactly how would bell boots do or help me while trail riding??? My mare is not extremely smooth at gait, and she is slightly tenderfooted on rough ground, she is shod. She does not strike her front hoofs with the back and that is what I thought the bell boots helped with.
So please answer some questions for this dummy!!
