Kentucky Horsewear Knee Tendon Boots are designed for horses that hit their knee while jumping, with complete freedom of movement with the cut out design at the inside of the knee joint.
The new design remains the same with a tough outer shell casing which is styled in an extremely light yet strong TPU outer shell to protect against impact, whilst the tendon and fetlock areas are both reinforced with D3O shock absorbing molecules for the ultimate protection. Laboratory tests have shown that the boots absorb impact more than 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. The tendon area of the boot features intelligent ventilation holes to help prevent legs and tendons over-heating, whilst the neoprene lining is also perforated, making these boots incredibly breathable, as well as offering excellent cushioning against the skin.
The tendon boot also features a higher cut out design than traditional tendon 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 about the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference.
