Back on Track
The Royal Tendon boots (Front) and The Royal Fetlock boots (back)
WHY WE LOVE IT
* So secure protecting the tendons from those floppy other legs
* Easy to take on and off
* Easy to clean, just rinse and dry
WHAT WE WOULD FIX
* The elastic band on the hind boots grows in size/length – maybe swop the fabric with the same brilliant quality that is in the front boots?
* They clean easily but still looks a mess when dried up – change to different finish for a more long lasting feel!
* The brass buttons stands out, but also could potentially be tangled up in the bridle if the horse scratches his face on these.
WHEN WE USE IT
Every day for all arena and off arena work.
For both riding, lunging and in hand work.
On horses that hate big shipping boots – these paired with bell boots (overreach boots) will give good protection when travelling!
These boots has quickly become the boots we use the most. We have drawer upon drawer with boots, but these are our go-to-boots!
They have a sturdy laminated outer that really feels so safe to ride with. Especially when jumping or out on gallops when there is a danger of overreach!
If you have had a tendon injury on a horse once… bandages just don’t give enough protection… you want the most protective boots around. We love these boots for that very reason.
If your horse has a tendency to brush, you will hear it for sure 🙂
It has the back on track technology in the fabric and will help your horses legs to warm up, reduce pain and heal faster.
The outer casing is perforated with air holes to make sure the legs don’t overheat. Not sure if it works, have had some sweaty legs on a few occasions.
We have discussed the brass nobs quite a bit. One of the horses (Casino) loves to scratch his face on boots, and these are his favourite in that regard. If he scatches himself and the bridle mix up in the brass buttons it might cause him to panic if he feels stuck… This has not happened so far, even after more than a year of use, but I am still bit worried!
LETS GET TECHINCAL
Hardwearing, nylon laminated outer casing
Thick, soft neoprene inner
Welltex™ ceramic infused fabric
Front has 3 brass buttons to fasten the elastic bands
Hind legs have 2 buttons
HOW WE CLEAN IT
* If full of sand we normally use a leg brush to brush them “clean”
* After working in the indoor we just wipe off with a damp sponge
* If muddy soak in luke warm water for 10 minutes, rinse and hang to dry.
They can be thrown in the washer!
If in a warm room they will dry over night
If in a stable they may take up to 48 hours to dry up!
They are generous in size. We have used these (Full) on a big boned Knabstrupper and they fit perfectly!
For some reason the tendon boots seems of a higher quality than the feltlock boots. Not sure why that is, but especially the elastic band seems to grow longer over time
Comes in black, white and brown
Sizes Cob and Full
* I love scratching my face on these when sweaty, soooo good!
* You can make a lot of drama when you need a wee canter or a buck. Just brush your hind feet together, and pretend to be spooked by the fab noise of the boots!!! Works every time!
