    buy a size up than you use in Italians.

    I love Italian bell boots...but they don't last quite as long as the easy stretch.
    I agree,these are tough bells.You can also can use two pair of bells,I do that with some of mine....it works

    I used the Italian ones on my colt who needs them 24/7 for six months. Then he pulled off/lost 3 in one week -- 2 brand new ones. So this pair is Davis. Bright pink so I can find them in the field.

    I've been using Centaur pullons in black for a while now (smartpak has them). I've like how they've held up and they were easy to put on, esp after I learned to put them on inside out. I also just leave them on and ride in them too. I just flip them up and hose off any turnout/debris so they stay comfy.

    My horse wears a Med in Davis but XL in the Centaur.
    Another vote for the centaur boots, I believe that all of our bell-boot wearing horses have them and they really do stand up extremely well to 24/7 wear.
    owned and loved by a crazy TB mare
