Horse boots- Gimmick or Legit?
So I know my own personal thoughts on boots, but I was curious to know what others thought. I have found from personal experience that my horse needs boots, I mostly only use them for shows now and jumping higher than 3' as he has creative ways to hit himself.
I know there are many people who are against boots and those that are pro-boots. Do they really make a difference or are they more to ease the riders mentally in thinking they are protecting and supporting the legs.
So what are you thoughts? Also what are your thoughts of boots in relation to a tendon/ligament injury after it has healed?
Also for those that still use them after these types of injuries have you changed the ones you have used?
