Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: These full coverage shipping boots made by Weaver have a suggested retail price of $70.56 US. I bought them from a tack store in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on sale for $40.00 Cdn. We've got two horses that are trailered on a regular basis. One is fairly calm while the other one can get nervous on the trailer. Instead of using polo wraps (which can be dangerous on the trailer) or getting short flimsy (read: cheap) shipping boots, I opted for these ones to protect our horses legs.

Likes: They come in 4 different colours: Black, Burgundy, Blue and Hunter Green. Fortunately for us, our horses colours are hunter green and burgundy. These boots have a 600 denier ripstop nylon outer layer, with a synthetic fleece lining. There are three wide straps on each boot to close them, and the boots are sold in sets of 4. The material is smart looking, seems tough and the stitching is tight and even. The velcro closures are of good quality.

Dislikes: At the bottom of these boots is a hard plastic striker plate (to protect the bottom of the boots should the horse step on, or scrape, them). Our first outing with these boots was a 20 minute trailer ride. They protected the horses nicely, though one of the striker plates had already cracked! This boot was on the calm horse. I don't know how the crack happened, but it's disappointing. The boots could also have a better fit, though because they carry 3 different size ranges (Small = 14-15h, Med = 15-16 1/2h, L = 16 1/2h +) only, it's hard to find the perfect fit. The front boots fit beautifully, while the back boots seemed a bit short. There's a cupped area at the top of the back boots for the horses point of hock to fit in, though if I cradled the horses point of hock in it, the bottom of the boot came to just above the hoof. Neither of our horses have extremely long legs so conformation isn't the problem. We fixed this by slightly altering the boots with our sewing machine.

Quality: Pretty good construction though there are a few things which could - or should - be improved upon. Overall though, for the money, these are a good boot.

Summary: I don't know if I would get these boots again, though I do like the full coverage they offer. I would have to shop around next time and see what other boots I could get in my price range.
