The Tendon Boots Elastic have a tough outer shell casing which is styled in an extremely light yet strong TPU to protect against impact, whilst the tendon and fetlock areas are both reinforced with D3O shock absorbing molecules* for ultimate protection. Laboratory tests have shown that the boots absorb impact over 50% better than any other boot currently on the market, with the ability to disperse a heavy blow equivalent to that which would actually break a human bone. The tendon area of the boot features intelligent ventilation holes to help prevent legs and tendons overheating, whilst the neoprene lining is also perforated, making these boots incredibly breathable, as well as offering excellent cushioning against the skin.
Our artificial sheepskin is attached to a knitted base that is very air permeable and breathable and then laminated to a suede fabric that is also breathable and air permeable. In conjunction with the ventilation holes made in the boot these Sheepskin Tendon Boots Elastic are very breathable and prevent overheating of the tendons. The artificial sheepskin, which is 100% animal friendly, also offers excellent cushioning against the skin.
The tendon boots also feature a higher cut out design than traditional tendon boots to allow total freedom of movement around the pastern area, when the horse is jumping. Consideration is also paid to giving optimum freedom and comfort to the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference. The tendon boots feature an open front and the double elasticated insertion within the strap design has been developed to cater for those riders who want a boot, which offers the ultimate protection, yet features this more traditional design. The elastic closure makes it very easy to close these boots and adjust the size.
These boots sustain the washing machine at 30°, no dryer. After cleaning these boots you can use the Kentucky Horsewear Boot Spray which makes them look shiny and brand new!
