The Outer shell is a high grade BASF TPU that flexes with a horse's movements yet is incredibly protective. Outer strike guard has dual hardness, with strong raised outer core to repel impact and a softer inner core to allow for tendon flexion. The horse can move freely and is protected from overheating, suspensory injuries, and bowed tendons. Eight vents with micro mesh filters increase air flow. Double stitched Velcro closures provide excellent grip and durability.
The interior strike guard running across tendons and fetlocks is a dynamic technological material called ARTi-LAGE. It remains soft until the moment of impact when it instantly hardens into a protective barrier. Once the energy is deflected away from the impact point, the ARTi-LAGE material immediately returns to its softer state. This decreases friction and improves flexibility for your horse. Inner boot liner is non-neoprene bio foam that is soft and prevents boots from slipping. Naturally breathable memory foam is perforated for additional ventilation. It's eco-friendly, anti-fungal, and hypo-allergenic, which makes it a great choice for horses with sensitive skin.
As a general rule of thumb:
Horse/Full size is designed to fit horses 15.2 hands to 16.3 hands
Large size is designed to fit horses 16.3 hands and above
Please note that our XC boots are sized proportionally to fit front and hind legs. If your horse is a medium size in front he/she should be medium size in hind unless the hind legs have unusually long canon bones.
