[RC] over reach boot reviews? - Esprech/Carrie - Kitley, Carrie E Civ USAF AFSPC 30 MDSS/SGSLF

Also, if your farrier can facilitate a better breakover on the fronts,
it will help as well, in addition to shortening rear toes.  My mare had

I recently purchased a great little morgan mare. I live in the sandy
southeast and the poor girl tore up a piece of her left front heel with
her own over reach. I believe this happened at a trot. I know bell boots
are the classic response but i am concerned about the amount of sand we
have and rubs resulting from the boots. Anyone out there have a
fantastic review on a good boot? What about the neoprene type? I have

bell boot or regular rubber one. suggestions or ideas? Next farrier
visit I will talk to him about squaring off her rear toes  but any other
