Just wondering peoples opinions of working/paddock boots and the effect on tendons. For me personally it would be for flat work only. So working boots/bandaging, type of boots, pros, cons (issues of heating damaging tendons etc) Paddock boots (pros, cons) At the moment i don't use anything as I believe that boots can actually cause damage to tendons.... But I have started doing lateral work and my girl is brushing her hind legs nothing major. She also keeps getting small cuts on her hind legs so opinions on paddock boots would be appreciated too. (surely it can't be good for horses to be wearing them 24/7 in summer ?) But surely if so many people continue to use them they must have their place or is it just fashionable?
