Horse Tendon Boots
Tendon boots is an extremely important thing for all horse's to have. A tendon injury can be devastating and life-altering for a horse. When participating in high speed activities such as show jumping, horses can strike the tendon of the front leg with the hind leg hoof. If your horse is wearing tendon boots, this is not as big an issue, however if your horse suffers the full brunt of this injury without the protection of tendon boots, it can result in a tendon tear. This kind of injury can result in months and months of frustrating box rest for you horse.
With the way the tissue works and recovers, should your horse suffer from this injury the tendon will always be slightly weaker than the others which can force a careers change if your horse in specialised in a particular discipline or event.
