BOT Products in Barrel Racing

I've heard of BOT products being used BEFORE a race. Can you use their Exercise boots during a race? Or do you simply recommend the quick wraps before a race and run them in normal gear? Thoughts? Advice?

I've never seen the exercise boots in person so I don't know how they are. But they appear as if you could run in them.

I have a set of the quick wraps that I will leave on Red for a couple hours before a race. I really liked using them last year because it helped cut down on the swelling of his back leg that had an injury.

I think therapeutic products are like anything else: They will work for some but not all. I know there are people who have not noticed a difference with their BOT products. But I myself do like using them and feel it helps.

I do not use them after a run. I use ice boots after a run.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I have some barrel racers out here who swear by the exercise boots. A woman who owns a tack store sells them and uses them. I'm going in today to take a look at them. A woman who owns a very nice stallion she runs on wants the boots as well. She said the exercise boots have no comparison. She wouldn't use anything else.

Apparently a lot if people swear by their products. Saddle pads, boots, ect.
