Waldhausen Boot Set
These boots were a great purchase! Loved the price, and they have lasted very well. I will say they are a bit on the small side, but they do stretch out after awhile. They fit well on my Thoroughbred.

Love these boots!
I really love these boots! They are a great fit on my 15.2 hh TB.
I have used them every ride since I bought them and they don't slip or loosen during the ride. They are a little stiff at first but break in very quickly and offer great protection.
These boots are easy to clean and look very nice even after getting really dirty and needing hosed off several times.
A great deal on great boots!

Great Affordable Boot Set!
I used these boots almost every day during the summer and fall, and still use them occasionally. I bought them to use when I was training a 6 year old 17.1 TB who was learning to jump. He was somewhat nonchalant about picking up his feet over fences, and also tended to interfere, especially on circles or when asked to change gait or pace.
I found them to be lovely and soft, not at all like the terribly sticky and unpleasant neoprene boots I have had in the past. They are lined with thick, soft neoprene, but are covered with some stretchy material that makes them so much better! The shell was flexible, but also strong enough to withstand the abuse the boots took from this clumsy greenie.
I used them for jumping, cross country, riding in the fields, and even a long trail ride (13 miles). They never had dirt inside them and did not hold water. I usually hosed them off after each ride and then hung them on my blanket bar to dry. Overall I loved them. I don't use them quite as often anymore because my new horse is a 3/4 TB 1/4 Clydesdale who is doing only flatwork at the moment, so I use my Valena sheepskin boots. But I did try these on him and they fit, although he has, ahem, large bones. When he starts jumping he will wear these and I'm sure they will serve him just as well!
I did want to include a funny story about when I first put these on the TB, who I don't think had ever had anything but polos on his hind legs. He walked like a doofus for about twenty minutes (and I mean he was kicking his belly with his hind legs!) but eventually, after a few ginormous bucks I might add, got used to them and never seemed to mind them again!

Smallest of small.
I purchased these boots and they were so small. i couldn't even secure the straps on my 16.2 warmblood. They were extremely stiff as well. Just buy eskadrons value set. Worth the extra money.
