bell boots

  1. Barrel Racing
    Ok one of my favorite subjects! Horse tack! My horse has to be in bell boots all the time because of our turned toes and he over steps a lot and can easily throw a shoe. And I’m guessing my one pair I have now isn’t going to last more than a week😂 So favorite brands for bell boots? Or headstalls...
  2. Trail Riding
    Hi! Recently while trail riding, my gelding has been getting cuts on his front hooves and its making him tender on his feet which I don't like and neither does he, so I'm looking into getting him a pair of bell boots which will work good for long hours on the trail.. So does anyone have a good...
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I just bought a pair of Professionals Choice ballistic bell boots and they keep turning while riding. I bought a large size, they touch the ground of which I don't really like but don't meet in the front of my horse's pastern. I make them snug, but not to tight so it cuts off circulation. I...

    So I am in the midst of PLANNING on buying a horse one day, (in the next two or three years) and I was just wondering, should I keep my horse wearing bell boots 24/7, or switch the bell boots out for splints when I go riding, (jumping?) Thanks! :D

    The title pretty much says it all. I still havent figured out what bell boots are actually used for.
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So I have a 3 year old gelding who is very very mouthy, and he has the incredibly irritating habit of taking off his clothes. :-x He will tear off blankets, saddle pads, standing wraps, boots, wraps, bell boots, everything. So we tend to not leave him with anything on if we can avoid it...

    Hi Have the Professional's Choice Ballistic Overreach Boots in size medium and they seem to fit around my horse's feet just fine. However, they are always getting stepped on and ripped up in the back underneath. Does anyone know if there is a "shorter" overreach/bell boot out there that might...

    For a good price? I just don't want to spend $100 on a pair of boots for my horse. I've heard that with boots you get what you pay for though but I'm not exactly sure what materials or brands to look for and I don't want to get ripped off. What do you suggest? I am using them to protect my horse...
  10. English Riding
    :wave: I always use polo wraps while working my horse, Laddy, so he will not scar his legs since he has a lot of action and has shoes on his front two feet. I'm aware that there are other types of boots and wraps out there. Is there any kind of wrap or boot that you prefer to ride in or always...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Okay so I was browsing at some bell boots and came cross the Veredus Carbon Shield Heel Protector Boots and I thought Oh those are really nice thinking they were probably around $80 at the most then I looked at the price and was shocked! Really I wouldn't pay $200 for bell boots. I got mine for...
