The Kentucky Horsewear 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 Proteck Impact Gel* 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.
The 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 give optimum freedom and comfort to the splint bone, so that 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. Use our Boots Cleaner to make them look shiny and brand new!
*Proteck Impact Gel is a light and clever material that locks on impact and then disperses the blow returning to its former pliable self immediately.
