Model: Open Front Boots & Ankle Boots
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I bought these boots from Dover Saddlery for around $120 four years ago.
Likes: The boot seems to protect the horse well and fits a wide variety of legs from TB to warmblood. It has held up well these past 4 years although the first few years I saved these boots and used them only for the Stadium phase of eventing and jumpers. Now I use them everyday
Dislikes: The PVC shell has significant scratches and rubbing from interference. I'm not sure if my horse really interferes that badly or if the shell is just a little soft and scratches easily. The ankle boots did not scratch up. They are also very hard to clean the inside of, the dirt seems to stick forever whether I scrub by hand or throw them in the washing machine (not sure if you're supposed to machine wash but I have a couple of times). It can be hard to make them look black and shiny but a little bit of leather new helped.
Quality: Decent, I love these boots and the price is cheaper than many of the top boots like T-Boots or leather boots. But there is really nothing special about this boot, just your basic open front, I think it should cost less. However, tey do last a long time- I probably use them once or twice a week over the past 2 years and they still look good (i used them only at shows the first 2 years).
Summary: They are an attractive boot but there is nothing particularly special about them. They will last you a number of years which is great, and that can make the price worth it. In the future I hope to save up and buy a pair of T-Boots but I will definitely be using these faithful boots for a few more years.
