So I'm in the position where it's looking like hoof boots are going to be needed for my cob, at least at the front. He is getting footy over stones, he is better on smooth Tarmac but not 100%. I have never used boots before and it seems like a bit of a minefield! They would be used only for hacking in walk trot and canter so I would like them to be grippy and also not fly off!
Any recommendations?

Measure his feet carefully, if he's anything like my cob they will be wider than they are long. If they are this shape you need to choose carefully as there aren't as many options. I found the best fit for mine with this shaped hoof were Glove wides, they're hard to get on if they fit correctly, but they don't come off and they're nowhere near as clumpy as some others, fitting is crucial though.
