Italian horse boot manufacturer Veredus has launched two new training boots.
The TRPro open front protection boot is designed for everyday use at home.
The boot has reduced thickness and weight for comfort and durability.
Made of neoprene coupled with lycra and with a strike pad in polyflex the boots are waterproof and easy to wash.
The double velcro fastening helps ensure they don’t slip.
The TRPro is available in small, medium and large in black or brown and costs £64 for the front and £40 for the back.
“A household name in the world of showjumping, the arrival of TRC-VENTO aims to appeal to all disciplines and is the first brushing boot that guarantees double ventilation,” said a company spokesman.
The boots feature a dual density shell, anti-shook carbon pad, 3D mesh ducted fabric, microperforated neoprene and double Velcro closure.
The new technology works by releasing heat from the horses’ legs both from the inside out and from the bottom up.
The technology means horses’ legs don’t get too hot. Rider Liz Benwell was convinced after conducting an experiment for Veredus putting one ‘ordinary’ neoprene brushing boot on one of her horse’s legs and the TRC Vento on the other.
When she came back from her hour’s hack she said the neoprene boot “was clammy inside and the horse’s leg was warm and sticky.”
But the inside of the TRC Vento “felt the same as when I had put it on and the horse’s leg was cool,” she observed.
The TRC-VENTO is available in medium and large, in black or brown colours priced £70 for the front and £46 for the back.
