Recently I’ve been having problems with cross country boots rubbing my horse’s legs. I’ve tried baby powder and tube socks to stop the rubbing but have had no success.
I have a large collection of cross country boots (Eskadrons, PE, Ecogold, Dalmar, NEW) and have tried each of them on my horse. The eskadrons and ecogolds do not rub but they are too small around the leg and if I go up a size then they will be too large. The Dalmars and PE’s fit the best but give terrible rubs on my poor guy. NEWs don’t fit at all and rub. My horse is a 17 hand TB with pretty average legs so I’m surprised I’m having trouble with fit.
Does anyone have any suggestions to help make the boots that fit NOT rub? Or do I need to try some other boots(like Magyk Equipes, Prolites or Kentucky)? What have you found useful in preventing rubs from boots?
Sorry, I know there are a lot of posts about cross country boots but when I did a search I could not find an answer. If there is a thread that does I would appreciate a link! Thank you in advance for your help!
