As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Great for horses that chafe easily and also a favorite for use while shipping.

    Walsh Fleece Top Bell Boots is rated 4.3243 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only bell boot I buy. My mare wears them 24-7 and they hold up very well indoors and out. I use them on all my horses because the fleece top prevents rubbing and keeps them comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit for large horses! Bought these for my Perch/TB cross, fits his larger feet great! They are big enough and deep enough. Fleece is nice since he got rubs from the plain rubber ones. He did tear a chunk off within two weeks, but they are still usable. I would recommend them for the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I ordered 3 pairs of these since spring. Walsh always had a good reputation. I have an ottb who needs to live in bell boots so i thought these would be more comfortable. The velcro was so good on the first pair I ordered two more pairs for my other horses. Now i have never had a problem with torn bell boots before but in 30 days time had HUGE chunks of rubber missing out of these. I compared them to my Davis boots and the rubber is much thinner. Also was disappointed that although there is a huge AMERICAN flag on these they are now made in China (which in itself probably explains the lesser quality). I now have three useless bell boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Velcro Ever Nice quality bell boots. The best part is the velcro. Super strong. Rubber thick enough and fleece nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bell boots I have used These boots are really durable and well-fitting. My first pair after a year is still holding up well. My horse has never managed to remove these. The velcro fastenings are so tight that it is sometimes hard to remove them!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They're NOT made in America! One of the big reasons, other than they had a fleece top and velcro closure, was the USA flag, which I naively thought meant that they were made in the USA?! Not! There's a little gold sticker attached - made in China! The other thing I didn't like is that the velco closure is really hard to get apart. Certainly no worries about the boot coming off but it was a pain. I just returned them after 1 try!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Durable Bell Boots I love this bell boots!! My horse typically has a one pair a month habit, but these have lasted. We previously used the Davis bell boots, but he started to get rubs, not with these! The fleece is very soft, and the double locking velcro has stood the test of time! I have a black pair for turnout and a pretty white pair for competitions!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boots I like these bell boots. They are easy to put on and they stay on! What I like about them best, besides the soft tops, is the American flag. I use these on almost every ride and they are holding up nicely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I keep bell boots on any of my horses that have shoes and I usually go for as cheap as possible as they all seem to fall off and get ruined at the same rate. One of my horses seems to be a little accident prone and developed a sore near the bell boot area while wearing another brand of boots. It took months to heal, but I purchased these to help reduce rubbing and friction. She has had them on for about 2 months now and they are just now showing some wear and tear. The fleece still looks decent and the rubber looks pretty good as well. The velcro is looking a little ratty.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable These boots have held up well. First time they tore was after 2 yrs of wear! Sometimes hard to clean the fleece (ie. sand and dirt stick). Stiff brush works best when dry. Would still recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fleece boots These bell boots are fairly well made and seem to be pretty durable. The fleece isn't overly plush though, and may still rub very sensitive horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Always ship in them! My jumpers owner had these for him, and I never ship him or my other horse without them anymore. The mediums fit my 15.3hh OTTB and the larges are perfect for my 17.1hh OldenburgxTB. They are great! The velcro does rip after a few years, but my jumper is very hard on things. Worth paying for the fleece and nice fitting bell boots to be shipped around it to shows!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bell boots I've ever used!! Come large enough for my warmblood, the fleece is durable and these boots last for months!! Other boots I've used hold up a couple of weeks at best, but these last usually 6 months or so!! Higher priced initially, but worth it in the long run!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed In Value Probably should have read more reviews before I purchased these.They are not awful quality, but for the price they are a poor value. The fleece is very soft, but very thin. They are also not 100% white in color - more like a blue-ish white color.The stitching looks very good quality, and although the rubber is very thin, it seems good quality as well.On the inside, the fleece is not entirely stitched down and the underside is rough and can come up. This probably wouldn't happen while on the horse, but it seems odd why they would leave it that way.Overall disappointed in these, Perri's fleece bell boots are MUCH better quality and less money than these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I got these bell boots after trying several on my OTTB. I was going back and forth between bell boots being too big and then too small then I found a pair that fit him nicely and they rubbed sores. He only wears them for riding and turnout and they seem to be holding up pretty good. The fleece is really soft and the velcro straps seem very sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Turn Out Bell Boots! I have tried MANY, MANY bell boots and these are the best I've used. My horse wears them for riding and turn out. She has sensitive skin and gets rubs easily. The fleece on these boots is very soft and has not rubbed my mare at all. The velcro is great and she has not once been able to get them off!! One did get a small tear at the back, but that was month ago and it did not get any bigger. I highly recommend these boots, even though they are a bit pricey!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Measure first! These bell boots are extremely high quality and I was very pleased with the construction and thickness of both the rubber boot and the fleece top. However, the XL was way too small to fit my 18hh Hanoverian (who wears size 4 shoes and whose pastern measures 10" around at the narrowest point). The Davis XL just barely fits him (though too short), so I took a chance on these in XL, but they were way too small. Make sure you measure your horse and check out the size chart before you order these to save yourself return shipping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for extended use I love these boots, but they are not made to be left on your horse night and day. I put these on only when riding and they lasted about 3 horses/ day for about 2 months. If you leave them on long term, the velcro stitching is not sturdy enough and will tear off of one side. I love that these dont rub, but these are best used if put on only for riding. White looks sharp on all of the horses. I will continue to buy these though, for the price they are well worth it and easy to take on and off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these bell boots! I love these bell boots for turnout, the fleece seems to be very good quality and the stitching on the velcro is excellent. The rubber also lasts a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite Pleased! A friend purchased these a couple months ago and then gave them to me for my gelding that needs bell boots 24/7. We were hoping the fleece would prevent rubs- and it has! I am quite happy with them; they fit well, stay on, don't rub, and clean up well. The velcro has worn like iron and I love the one-touch velcro strap.Only issue is that for the price the rubber is thin. They are too expensive for how thin the rubber is.I probably won't buy another pair based on the price; but if the price was more reasonable I would purchase them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from could be better Fleece is well adhered to boot, fit is good. My only complaint is that the rubber of the boot is not very thick. These were purchased for a horse that lives in bell boots due to over reach and I don't see them holding up well. A bit over priced for an average bell boot.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from fleece top bell boots The biggest problem with these bell boots is that there is only one big piece of velcro on each boot. Once it tears, they are going to be trash in short order. My horse began tearing the velcro on one boot in less than a week. I prefer boots with two velcro strips per boot, so when one begins to tear they will hang on a while longer. Also, the quality of the "fleece" was pretty poor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only ones that fit my horse! These are nice, good-quality bell boots. They don't last forever, but I am happy with how long they last for the money they cost. These are the only boots I have found that fit my horse who has large, round hooves.
