Model: FlexiSoft Open-Front Horse Boots
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: I got these as a gift for Christmas. They were bought at Dover Saddlery for $115, the black to match my saddle and bridle. I needed boots for my Appaloosa x Quarter Horse gelding because when we go out for trail rides and compete in Hunter Paces, he comes back with scratches and cuts on his front legs from the rocks and sticks. I tried many different types of boots and these work the best. I needed something for protection, not really support and I have found the best thing for him!
Likes: They are flexible and easy to get on. The velcro straps make it even easier. I never over tighten them because of the elastic, they stretch. Easy to wash in the sink and dry pretty fast. Along with the trails, I use them in the ring when he free-lunges and and while I ride, because he kicks himself. Sand doesn't get into the boots and irritate him. I jump him too and since he is part Quarter horse and doesn't like to pick up his back feet too much, he knocks poles down, the boots protect the back of his legs from the poles hitting his tendons. Definitely water proof, since I have taken them through streams, they come out a little cleaner but just fine, and they dry off when we start running.
Dislikes: Nothing was bad about the boots. They were a bit pricey but most boots are. Also they get scratches from the rocks but that doesn't bother me. They are just fabulous.
Quality: Great quality, they haven't broken or shown any signs of wear really. The flexisoft material doesn't rub his legs, he barely even notices them.
Summary: I recommend that people buy these boots. 4 other people from the same barn as me have bought them already and loved them as much as I do. They are perfect for protecting legs and just for over-all use.
