    Default XC/Eventing boots

    So, after Bishop Burton last season, I found that one of my hind Dalmars had completely ripped. The front of it must of caught on something, the neoprene was left but no protection and the velcro strap missing its buckle and loop.

    For this season, I'm on the hunt and I really like my Dalmars but are they this easy to completely destroy? We didn't clatter anything, and I don't remember feeling a drag from his back leg as if he had caught it.

    What do people recommend? I'm currently looking at the Dalmars and PE with vents, or I quite like the look of the new Kentucky ones...

    Thoughts?

    I really like the premier equine ones.

    Their beauty captures every eye, a gift from God for all mankind, they lend us wings so we may fly, to ride a horse is to ride the sky

    I like both the Equilibrium Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots and the Equilibrium Tri-Zone Cross Country Boot

    The PE ones are very good.

    I use Prolites which I've had ever since I started eventing him 3 years ago and they're still in great condition. I used to have Dalmars before that and I found that they weren't a great fit, but don't have experience with the new styles.

    Ditto the PE ones. I have the fronts and they're lovely.

    Smile because it happened.

    I've got some Tri-zone ones on his front and PE behind, the Tri-zone are definitely my favorites
    There these ones http://www.equilibriumproducts.com/l..._country_boot/

    I think the PE ones depend on the type of horse, I've heard lots of people say they have slipped/rubbed, and Flynn's hind PE brushing boots rubbed him really badly (never happened before). Equilibrium xc boots were perfect for us, but again it probably depends on the horse!!

    I wasn't impressed with the premier equines, backs slipped horribly on Raz. Really rate both the eskadron and the tri-zone allsports.

    PE ones few years back scarred my friends mares legs.... wont touch with a barge pole!

    Kentucky ones look very good, can't really beat prolites either. Dalmars previously used at work and always came up well and were very much abused.

    My N.E.W ones have lasted well and fit nicely and we have a pair of Veredus event front boots which have been great.

    Oh how I miss you, my symphony, played the song that carried you out.
