These have always seemed to work good for us. The can go in the wash, or hang dry and brush off. easy on/off. and cheap.

They also come with a neoprene lining, which is probably better for t/o, but I've only used the fleece lined ones so I can't vouch for the quality of the neoprene model. Dover always has both varieties on sale, so you should be able to snatch a pair for about $25, maybe less.

A third vote for the dover boots...

I have the fleece lined and a friend has the neoprene. Super easy to care for and have held up well. I use them on both front and back legs for turn out - medium on front, large on back.

Woof also makes a similar boot, that are ever so slightly more expensive, but you can get them with colored velcro if you want to differentiate from others in the barn...

I would recommend the Club Woof boots from Dover. They are very well made and durable. Well worth the little extra money. A person at my barn has the neoprene lined Dover boots for turn out and they are VERY stiff. They have also torn and her horse is easy on its blankets and boots. My jumper has the regular Woof boots for turnout boots and they have held up quite well. I needed an MXW for the fronts otherwise I would have gotten the Club Woof boots.

I like Davis splint boots for turnout. They have a protective shell and nice thick neoprene lining for shock absorption. Not super attractive, but great for turnout. They can be hosed and hold up great.

Practically indestructible.

Another vote for the Dover boots, I use the fleece-lined. Super easy to clean (can toss them in the wash or hose them off in a bind & let dry overnight), hold up really well to tons of abuse and are really reasonably priced.

All purpose Woof boots are my first choice. My old horse went out in them and I might start turning out my baby in them but I am afraid he will chew them :). I have had the same 2 pairs (front and back) for 5 years. They were used for turnout everyday for a bout 2 years and now an occassional ride in the field.

I need to get a set of the Dover boots - does anyone have the sale catalog number for them?

I seem to somehow not have one of the 1000 catalogs they are always sending me laying around....(it figures, right?)

These for sure.. Trainer doesn't want us to have the neoprene lined ones. Trainer says it'll blister their legs if they had just been un wrapped and then start to sweat in them

I was also taught it's never to keep neoprene on for long periods of time... :confused:
