Horse Boots and Wraps



Manufacturer: Dalmar
Model: Event Boots
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: I purchased front and hind boots from Bit of Britain at Rolex in 2011. I paid retail for them, so around $140 for fronts and $160 for hinds. They are really expensive boots but as my mom says, "its still way cheaper than a vet bill."

Likes: These boots have the carbon fiber strike plate on the front and back of each boot. The plate does shatter on high impact! I had a horse hit a fence hard and the plate is completely shattered but did not puncture the coating at all. I don't know how serious the injury would have been without the boot but there was not a mark or heat beneath the boot! I have not had a strike pad break on your average rub. They come back from cross country as light as they went on, even after water and seem to collect little to no sand and dirt.

Dislikes: These boots run on the big side. They only come in medium and large and the mediums are almost too big for my 16.1 TB mare. They also started to cause rubs when I tried to use them multiple days a week for gallops so I now just use them for schooling or running cross country. I contacted the company to find out if there was any way to replace the strike pad and they said they did not replace them. So the biggest downside would be investing in a new pair if you break a strike pad. The velcro is also too long on the hinds so I tape them every time I use them.

Quality: These boots are very well constructed. The binding has held up great and they clean up nicely.

Summary: These are some of the nicer cross country boots on the market, however the high price tag leaves something to be desired.
