    Default Horse Boots...Suggestions Please!

    I have an 8-year-old Thoroughbred off the track that I am currently retraining to as a hunter/jumper and possibly a low-level eventer. He has a small bone chip in his right front ankle that is outside the joint and does not limit his ability or affect his soundness. However, I would like to protect the ankle with a closed-front boot just to be safe. It seems like boots that are closed around the ankle are kind of hard to find. Do you have any suggestions for a decent boot that would serve this purpose?

    Have you looked at the woof boots? or the nunn finer versions? they make a 'club' brushing boot that wraps all the way around. It has some conture to the outside, but it's meant to overlap where the velcro is on the outside. They arent terrbily expensive and they clean up well.

    Toklat also carrys something i think its the Valena? or the DSB
    that also is a full wrap around.


    By ankle im guessing you mean fetlock not pastern/ coronary
    area right?

    If you are looking to cover the pastern, nun finer and i think beval both make a 'pastern' boot'.. basically a thin layer of neoprene w velcro on it to protect the area if the horse hits it on something.
