Choosing the Best Open-Front Horse Boots

When it comes to protecting your horse's legs, there are various types of boots available on the market. One type of boot that is popular is the open-front boot. As the name suggests, these boots leave the front of the leg uncovered while protecting the back of the cannon bone and fetlock.

Open-front boots for horses are typically made from leather or synthetic materials like neoprene or PVC. Some even incorporate shock-absorbing gel into their design. It is important to ensure the boot fits properly to reduce the risk of rubs or chafing. Whether you are looking for protection from jump rails or hind hooves, an open front boot may be a good option for you and your horse.

Frequently Asked Questions About Open-Front Horse Boots

What are open-front horse boots for?

Open-front horse boots are a type of boot that is commonly used in jumping disciplines. As the name suggests, these boots have an open front, which allows the rider to easily put them on and take them off. These boots protect the horse's legs and help to prevent injuries.

How tight should open front horse boots be?

The main thing you want to achieve when fitting open-front horse boots is a snug fit that won't rub or chafe your horse's legs. You also want to make sure the boot stays in place while your horse is moving around. With that said, every horse is different, so you may need to experiment a bit to find the right fit. A good starting point is to fasten the bottom strap snugly, then leave the top strap loose enough that you can slide two fingers underneath it. Once you've found the right fit, check the boots regularly to ensure they haven't become too loose or too tight.
