What are bell boots for?
Bell boots protect the horse's hooves and coronet against tapping and other external influences. Bell boots cover the coronet, hoof balls and part of the hoof. In show jumping, bell boots can help protect the hooves when an obstacle is hit or when the horse taps its front hooves with its hind legs. Bell boots can be useful for dressage riding as well, for example, during a forward gait like the extended trot or working trot. Especially horses that haven't been in training for long need to build muscle first and tend to make larger and stronger steps with their hind legs, which increases the chance of tapping the front legs. As soon as all four legs are developed equally, the chances of tapping are reduced to a minimum.
Other horses benefit from bell boots when in the pasture or paddock to protect their hooves from external influences. If you put on bell boots when grazing your horse, make sure to use airy bell boots that cover the entire back of the hoof as well. An example of these are the Norton Bell Boots or the Bridleway Bell Boots.
