Protection boots Flextrainer Air
BADGE: Good value for money
WHY WE LOVE IT
They are lightweight
Breaths and keep legs cooler than other boots
Good size range
WHAT WE WOULD FIX
Can`t think of anything
WHEN WE USE THEM
Got the white once for a Friesian (always stunning in white), and use them for warm up in dressage competitions.
Also good when lunging / long reining and keeping a close eye on the movement and stepping under or uneven gaits
These boots are so good. We did not expect them to be as the price is low.
We started off using them in the arena for dressage work, but now we tend to use them also on hacks as these cover 360 degrees of the leg, covering those precious bones and tendons!
Will probably buy these again in a darker colour!
LETS GET TECHNICAL
These are Neoprene boots with elastic straps.
They are perforated with holes to make sure they do not overheat the legs. Overheating of legs has been a linked with tendon injuries.
We use L in front with two straps, and XL behind with three straps.
Good velcro that sit tightly
HOW WE CLEAN IT
They does come in a wash bag but the holes where to big for us, and we use another wasbag for the washing mashine. We wash them on a gentle cycle 30 degrees.
As they are white, plunging them in a bucket of lukewarm water did nothing for us. Needed a more thorough approach.
Harry’s Horse provides a good sizing chart, so that you can measure your horse legs and feel, confident that you are buying the right size. (Why don’t all brands do this, it’s brilliant?)
Comes in sizes S, M, L, XL
Comes in the colours White, Brow, Black and Navy
These boots come also in a non airy more padded version
SILKE THE FRIESIAN SAYS
I don’t care much for boots on my hind legs. Tried to kick these off, but they are stuck…
