you should wear open-front boots they are the safest and most effective... open-front boots are good as they let the horse feel they have hit a rail... but it does not hurt them

They are boots worn by a rider on a horse pulling a carriage. The rider is usually on the front left horse.

a cob is still a horse, it is just another sizing, there are ponies, hacks, Galloway's. cob is mainly used for sizing of bridles, halters, saddle cloths, bell boots, open front boots, splint boots, etc.

You may be talking about leg boots or bell boots. Leg boots go up to around the knee and cover the pastern, while bell boots go on the front feet and just cover the pastern to prevent the horse from injuring himself by stepping on the back of his front foot

Open front boots are used to keep the horse from nicking the back of the front legs while running or jumping. Sometimes, when galloping or jumping, horses will over-stride and their back hoof will hit their front leg.

I would recomend medium size. Im also in the market for splint boots, and I found the medium size is for horses 14'2- 16' HH or the average size horse.

Yes, country boots can be worn to ride a horse in.

You put on a saddle. You would also put on a saddle pad, bridle and any other things that that horse would need (example: splint boots, bell boots, polo wraps, crouper, martingale, ect.).

I'm really not sure what is being asked. If you are asking about shoes on the horse they are called horse shoes. Boots for equestrians are called different things depending on the type. There are field boots, dress boots, paddock boots and riding sneakers. There are also theapeutic boots for injuries or support during strenuous workouts. Easy Boots, splint boots, skid boots, bell boots, shipping boots, hock boots are just a few of the available boots for horses.

If you mean on the saddle, they are called stirrups.If you mean shoes, they are called riding boots or yard boots or maybe even wellies.

The next best thing to horse riding specific boots are smooth soled work boots with a low heel. You could also wear 'fashion' style boots so long as they have a 1.5 to 2 inch heel on them. If you can only wear tennis or athletic shoes ask if the person has toe cages or Tapaderos to put on the stirrup irons to keep your foot from going through the iron.

I think 'tack' is the wrong word. What you need are boots. They are sometimes called overreach boots or bell boots and are a must for a horse that 'tracks up' to the point that he interferes with himself. The result can be injury to the backs of the front cannon bones, fetlocks or heels which of course you want to avoid at all costs. You can buy these from your local tack or feed store or can order them online from horse supply catalogs.

for bell boots and splint boots you can just hose them off, dry them,and store them in the tackroom

There are three main considerations to be made when choosing riding boots. What is comfortable for the rider, what is comfortable for the horse (and will not harm it) and what kind of riding are you undertaking. In essence riding boots should be of soft material with no protrusions, long boots are also an advantage. This is so that the horse does not feel any discomfort from the horse and the rider can easily make his wishes known to the horse through leg movements.

you should put bell boots on the horse because when horses over reach with their back legs they pull their shoes... bell boots are especially designed to have a long flap in the back to prevent their hoofs from latching on to the shoe! :)

Riding boots is the most important purchase when buying equipment for horse riding. There are no specific standards when it comes to riding boots but you will want boots with one to one and a half inch heel and low tread. These boots can be purchased at your local tack shop.
