The Ultimate Boot Test
Independently Tested in a Safety Laboratory
Tested to be lightweight, even when wet! Heavy boots increase the effort the horse must make and increase the risk of injury caused by the early onset of fatigue.
Tested for protection against concussion and penetration, applying the same force as if the horse was to hit a solid fence or obstacle or struck into itself.
Tested for breathability to ensure heat is allowed to escape from the boot, as research indicates that high temperatures may result in damage to tendons.
Tested for flexibility to reduce restriction of the horses? movement. Stiff or tight boots can affect performance due to altering stride characteristics and joint movement.
