    Default Shipping boots rec.

    Looking for recommendations for shipping boots that will fit my skinny legged TB mare. She's tough on her boots, so they need to be pretty sturdy, but hopefully not too much $$$.

    I love my Dover boots and they have paid for themselves numerous times over, but I just got a good deal on Weatherbeeta boots on Ebay. (There are lots left ...)

    Both cover the hocks & knees and very sturdy exteriors, which is important to me. All the filling in the world won't help if your horse tears through some measly 600 denier exterior.

    The Dover boots run large. A cob size will fit most normal horses. Weatherbeeta seems more true to size.

    We have Kensingtons and will never use anything else. The outside is Kensington mesh and extremely durable. They have great "stiffness" that keeps them from sliding down the legs. I think the two pair we have are about 7 years old and they are still going strong!

    I use quilts and polos. I've opened the trailer door one too many times to see a shipping boot pulled off and ground into the shavings.
