Tendon and fetlock boots are used to protect the horse’s legs from strike injuries, normally while show jumping and galloping. Tendon boots are designed to be worn on the front legs to fully protect the rear of the foreleg from being struck by the hind hoof. Fetlock boots are shorter and are worn on the hind legs to prevent brushing injuries and strikes from the hind hooves.
Both tendon and fetlock boots are usually designed with a hard, moulded outer shell to offer optimum protection from injury, with the straps fastening across the front of the leg rather than to the side as a brushing boot would. At Online For Equine we stock affordable tendon and fetlock boots for everyday use, smart boots for competition and boots designed with technically advanced materials for improved function.
