Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: Dover, for around $30
Likes: Very nice looking, the velcro closures are really fast and secure. I'm not sure if the magnets are helping with my horses stocking up/general(hind)leg swelling problems, but I think it is. I really prefer the "mini front boot" style of ankle boot that leaves the front open, so I was pleased to see I could have that and magnets, all in one! They seem awfully durable for costing only $30. The insides are a nice soft neoprene, if I was a horse I'd want to have that touching my legs! The outsides clean up really quickly with a soft brush or dry towel. They always stay in place.
Dislikes: Well, my horse isn't exactly a brusher, but the insides are already all scratched up after having them for about a month. So I'm guessing it leaves a make every time he interferes a little, not a good choice if your horse is a chronic brusher. They sure don't seem as resistant as any of my leather boots:) They haven't gotten dirty enough on the insides to try and clean them, but I think it will be pretty hard. The edges can roll somewhat. When I fasten them on(high up the leg) and then pull them down, I have to hold the bottom edges so they don't roll under.
Quality: They seem fairly nice. They won't last for very long if your horse brushes a lot, but other than that, I think they'll last me a long time.
Summary: I wouldn't get them again if I didn't need/want the magnetic part, but I'm pleased with them. I'm considering getting the front boots, as the only front riding boots I have are my nice eq. boots, and I'm sick of ruining those or jumping in polos
