In the latest of our buyers' guides, we look at what's on offer on the fetlock and tendon boot market today
Amigo Tendon and Fetlock Boots
The Amigo tendon and fetlock boots offer leg protection where it counts. The boots are designed to protect your horse’s leg, without compromising their comfort. They feature a tough PVC outer shell that gives optimal tendon protection, while the soft neoprene lining ensures comfort against the legs. The anatomical cut away shape is specially designed to prevent pressure points and the double Velcro closures give a secure fit. The fetlock boots feature a single Velcro closure. Sold as a set of four, available in sleek black or charcoal for a polished show look.
Back on Track Tendon Boots
The Back on Track Tendon Boots effectively absorb impact and distribute pressure for optimum protection. The boots are lined with special Welltex fabric, which incorporates infra-red technology to help promote circulation; this helps to relieve joint tension, avoid injury and maximise performance.
Premier Equine Kevlar Airtechnology Fetlock Boots
These Kevlar Airtechnology Fetlock Boots are made to the highest standard, using innovative technology and materials. A double density shell provides outer protection, while layers of Kevlar and shockproof materials work together underneath to minimise the effects of knocks and strikes. Air-Teque ventilated neoprene is used on the inside of the boot to help prevent heat build-up in the leg. This is combined with vents on the exterior of the boot to offer maximum breathability. The boots also feature a comfort dry liner to ensure that they are comfortable, practical and strong. Available in black, white or brown, in sizes small to large.
