    Yes, I was going to suggest trying both, too. Neither of mine love their flashes, but they like them better than figure 8s, and for both of them it is a necessary piece of tack when competing.

    I had a pair of gorgeous boots made for me that were so painful I lost feeling in both legs. They were from Argentina (and I am not) so it was not like I could go back and have the boot shop do...

    Thanks, everyone! I *love* the Five Star one- my show bridles are Five Star- but it is so expensive!

    I've also owned both. I have had a few different iterations of the T Boots and they simply don't hold up as well as the Eskadrons. As everyone else has mentioned they also collect sand.
