Maximum protection, minimum weight
When the Kentucky Horsewear Tendon Boots were launched two years ago, they proved to be a huge hit with show jumpers worldwide. Last year, the brand has introduced an elasticated strap version called the Kentucky Horsewear Tendon Boot Elastic. 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 area is reinforced with D3O shock absorbing molecules for the ultimate protection. 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.The tendon area of the boot features 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.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 to the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference.The tendon boots feature an open front and the new double elasticated insertion within the strap design has been developed to cater for those riders who want a boot, which offers the ultimate protection, yet features this more traditional design. Plus, this boot sustains the washing machine at 30° (no dryer).
