Mine never scalped or interferred when they traveled out of line, but if yours
does, I don't see why bell boots wouldn't help prevent injury.  I can't see
that they would hurt anything.  I don't know what other people do.  As a
matter of fact, it's rather comforting to discover other riders with horses
that crab; I thought mine were  fairly isolated cases.  One really hates to be
the only one in the world with a given problem!
