|Horze ProTec Tendon and Fetlock Boots|
|So we all know that Tendon Boots, Brushing Boots and Fetlock Boots are an extremely important part of your tack box. Prices can range from ‘costing an arm and a leg’ to ‘dirt cheap’. The quality is very much the same, they can range from Louis Vuitton to pieces of rubber strapped to the leg. I guess we all want Louis Vuitton tendon boots that are dirt cheap. That’s not going to happen, however, you can get pretty close.|
|If you don’t already know, Horze is one of the biggest equestrian brands in the world, and you don’t get that reputation if you manufacture junk. I have a few sets of these tendon boots and fetlock boots, and I can honestly assure you they are extremely hard wearing. Being a professional showjumper myself, I work my horses daily, and six months down the line, they are still close to ‘as good as new’ as you could hope for. For me there is nothing more annoying than spending money on something that doesn’t last.|
|From a protection point of view, which is what you buy them for, I can honestly say, nothing is getting through that hard PVC outer shell. These tendon boots are as good as you’ll get in this regard.
They look supper comfy as well. There’s a nice soft neoprene lining, that’s really easy to clean. This stops the build up of sand and grime, which can sometimes cause abrasions. They are low cut on the top, for freedom of movement, and if you’re a showjumper like me, that bit of freedom, could be the difference between a clear round, and one down.
|And last, but certainly not least, they have reinforced the Velcro straps. I don’t know how many tendon and fetlock boots I have had to throw away, because the straps have come apart. As I said earlier in this article, mine are all still going strong, and they certainly work harder than most.
So to sum up, Horze Protec tendon and fetlock boots come highly recommended. You’ll get a great product, for a very reasonable price.
