RE: [RC] [RC] Leg Protection - Ranelle Rubin

Tammy,

After trying the cheap Toklat interference boots, I ended up buying their higher end ones.The difference is the way they close and the overall durability. They are not on their website, but Janet at Australian Connection can order them. The cheap ones have metal wire bales that the velcro goes through and they seem to wear out the velcro and I just don't like the way they close as well as the others. The nicer ones have an overlapping velcro closure with no metal. They also have elastic on the front that IMO "gives" a little. They seem to stay put.

I have had alot of other riders ask me about them, and want to get some for much the same reason I bought them. If you do call Janet, just tell her I sent you and tell her you want the same boots I use.

Subject: [RC]   Leg Protection
Date: Sat, 4 Aug 2007 06:52:31 -0700 (PDT)

Hi, I am finally coming to the conclusion that maybe we need some kind of leg protection. I train in a very rocky area and a lot of the rides we attend are rocky. My geldings legs are starting to get quite a few battle scars. I am not looking for any kind of support, just protection. Can anyone recommend something. What kind of material works best. I am most concerned about heat buildup and rubbing. Also do you slap them on at the start of a ride and leave them or do you take them off at VC's and clean the legs. Do they let you go through a VC with them on? I guess I havent really been paying attention to what people who use them do.
Thanks,
Tammy
