Re: [RC] Bell boots - Chris Paus

Boy, I just hate to use bell boots or any kind of
boots on my horse. They get hot, they fill up with
water and dirt, and I've had a nasty accident because
of bell boots!

I was riding my horse on a wooded trail, when all of a
sudden he pitched forward. He tried to regain his
balance, but pitched forward again and I rolled over
his neck...

When I got up, I realized what happened... His bell
boot had snagged on a tree root, stopping his forward
motion. The boot didn't give, so Star went down. We
are very lucky that neither of us was hurt, just

I won't use anything like that on the trail again...

I was wondering if anyone could tell me which bell
boot or combo type boot they prefer.  I have a mare
that I use splint boots on but now I am noticing she
is some how dinging the front of her foot too, so
now I guess I need to add a bell boot type of
protection.  Thanks Angela amccorkle@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
