This month I want to know about your horse’s leg support and/or protection. Do you regularly use boots or wraps on your horse? I hope you’ll vote, and share your reasons in the comments!
Most of the time
Rarely to Never
I rarely use horse boots or wraps on Hemie. The potential negatives of irritating/rubbing legs, getting caught on something, and overheating outweigh the need for protection in his case. Hemie is very careful with his legs and rarely hits a rail. When he does, it’s with his toes (I know this from paint transfer). The boots I own do not offer “support” – just impact protection. However I do use boots when doing XC because solid fences have much greater impact if he does hit a jump. I’ve never been a believer in polo wraps, although I think they look nice.
|Will boot for photo challenges, though. Pink boot collection ftw.|
Last month I asked where you do your shopping: online vs brick-and-mortar stores. Here’s the results!
