Don’t forget to protect your horse’s legs! Regardless of your discipline, your horse’s legs need some form of protection while being excercised. Whether it’s a ‘galloping boot’, ‘splint boot’, ‘jumping boot’, ‘sport boot’, ‘brushing boot’ or a ‘polo bandage/wrap‘, your equine partner deserves this attention.
There are many different types/brands of these boots, and I would suggest you ask your trainer, or any professional ‘horse person’ what they would recommend(you have to do you homework and decide what works best for your horse). It’s been my experience that both the front and hind legs need protection, especially if the horse is jumping or performing ‘lateral’ movements…..then you might want to consider ankle boots as well.
