The Elastic Boots 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 boots feature 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.
Both the tendon and fetlock boots 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 have a double elasticated insertion within the strap design. The elastic closure makes it very easy to close them and adjust the size.
The Kentucky Young Horse Fetlock Boots are the ideal choice for competing young horses (conform to FEI rules) as well as for general use. The PVC leather section on the single Velcro strap is hardwearing, easy to clean and features our eye-catching logo. The generous Velcro single strap ensures a secure and adjustable fit.
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!
