I figured out how to put them on right, but that's another reason why I don't like them, they are hard to put on.
Were the ones that ripped on your horses hind legs? Most barrel racers use SMB skid boots on the hind leg. That might work.
Yes. And the lining/stitching on the inside ripped, as well as the suspensory strap on the front.
Boots are expensive, so I prefer to spend money on ones that last. I do confess I have a 4 pack of lime green, but I only use them once in awhile. I must say, Cash looks quite handsome in them .
