There could be lots of reasons- to stop them injuring themselves, to support an injury etc, my horse is turned out with rear boots to protect her legs from mud fever. you can buy special turnout boots, hope that helps!

Some horses are just extremely accident-prone, and are turned out with leg protection so they don't come in every day covered in cuts! There are also special tight-fitting leg protectors to prevent mud fever.

i agree with all of the above

I have t/o boots for mine as she is arthritic and they help keep her from getting really stiff on cold winter days!
