Taking precautions to protect your horse’s legs while travelling offers the best chance of avoiding injury. Travel boots should be well-fitting – too short and they won’t protect the whole of your horse’s leg correctly; too long and you risk them being trodden on which can cause the horse to panic and/or lose balance as well as probably breaking the boot. Travel boots normally secure with Velcro and should be fastened snugly.
Travel boots either come as anatomically shaped boots, or as simple pad - simple pads are better for young horses or inexperienced travellers as they may panic with longer, shaped boots. The shaped boots meanwhile will offer a better level of security and protection, and some types feature reinforced heel areas, further helping to protect against knocks. For horses that are prone to being very excitable when arriving at competitions/show grounds, look for travel boots with big Velcro tabs to help you get them on and off quickly and safely.
