    Question Beval Open Front Jumping Boots Sizing

    I'm looking at full set of Beval boots almost brand new for a deal! But they are a size 3. Now my gelding is a 16hh full bodied Foundation Quarter horse, he weighs in at 1136. He has the thick QH legs. Will they be too big? I'm trying to figure out what size he should wear.

    I have the front and backs in a 3 and so far have only put them on a 16hh Belgian WB. The fronts fit okay and the backs were a little big but stayed on just fine at the horse show. I kinda wish I had tried a size 2 but I got a big deal on them too. Oh well!

    I have 3's and they were a bit too loose on my 16.1 TB-seems like they should work for you.

    I guess I'm trying to find out if they fit more like Euro sizing or American. If they fit like American sizes He will need the 3's. But if they fit more like the UK/Euro sizes he will need the 2.

    IMHO they run pretty generous. My big huge gigantic 17.2 horse and size 3 foot horse wear the size 3 and it's even slightly big on them.
