Air-Cooled Original Eventing Boots are our longest and best selling, made from a combination of 2520D ballistic nylon and microfiber leather. The strong yet supple microfiber leather covers the important parts of the boot, around the fetlock, straps and strike guard. They incorporate Eva lining, which is water resistant and helps prevent the boots retaining water and becoming heavy on the horse's leg. Perfect protection for event horses.
How do they work? As the horse gallops air passes through the front vents, circulates and exits out of the side vents. This process allows a constant stream of cold air to pass through over the tendons, keeping them cool.
Microfiber leather is stronger than real leather, stretches and moulds to the horse's leg and retains its original shape. It has the advantage of being lighter but offering greater protection and the good news is that it is fully machine washable and has excellent durability.
Front Boots: Shaped to mould around the fetlock without impeding the natural action of a horse galloping or jumping. A strike guard runs down the back of the boot protecting the important tendons and ligaments from knocks and over reach injuries. 6 air vents allow a constant stream of air to pass through the boots whilst the horse is in action.
Hind Boots: Our high-cut design provides maximum coverage and protection from knocks and scrapes. A strike guard runs along the front of the boot protecting the leg from impact with fences. 8 air vents allow a constant stream of air to pass through the boots whilst the horse is in action.
