    Bandages and bell boots. I like them to be rugged on the float (weather permitting) as i find that they float better.

    I also never feed in the float - i've seen too many choking cases!

    Heifer, I have a set of Woof Wear Travel Boots Derby House :: Woof Wear Travel Boots

    They are great - you can mold them to the horse's legs as they are not as stiff and padded/fat as most other boots. They only have 3 fastenings, which makes them easier to put on, and they never move.

    i don't use anything, my new horse i just chucked him on the truck, pawed the crap outta my floor then off we went. i use a tail wrap on ozzie when we go to shows coz he poos all through it, i usually don't bother on the way back home :p
    and in the float rope over neck (and tied so it don't go on the floor) and up he goes without anything :)
