These boots 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 D3O shock absorbing molecules* for ultimate protection. The boots feature 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.
Both tendon and fetlock boots feature a higher cut out design than traditional boots to allow total freedom of movement around the pastern area, when the horse is jumping. Consideration is also paid to giving optimum freedom and comfort to the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference. The tendon boots feature an open front and have a double Velcro Loop closure which makes it very easy to close and adjust the size.
The Moonboot is an ultralight boot that goes around the entire fetlock but with an open front. They protect the hind joints from brushing while jumping or moving. Anatomically shaped they offer a comfortable and stable fit. The Moonboots evoke a nice action from the hind legs without overdoing it. The single Velcro Loop strap is very easy to handle and to adjust.
These boots sustain the washing machine at 30° (no dryer). After cleaning these boots you can use the Kentucky Horsewear Boot Spray which makes them look shiny and brand new!
* D3O shock absorbing molecules is a light and clever material that locks on impact and then disperses the blow returning to its former pliable self immediately. 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.
