E-VENTO Cross country boots in microperforated neoprene AEROX, together with 3D mesh ducted fabric to guarantee double ventilation. E-VENTO boots boast the following features: Double ventilation: heat released from the horse’s legs passes through the microperforated neoprene layer and is then distributed in the 3D mesh ducted fabric. Air is tunnelled through specialist inlets as the horse moves which directs accumulated body heat outwards through the technical ducted fabric Microperforated neoprene AEROX: this allows the horse’s skin to breathe, avoiding sweating and overheating of the tendons Waterproof: the boots don’t absorb or retain water, meaning they stay dry despite weather and terrain conditions Reduced weight: despite offering extremely robust protection, the boots are lightweight – allowing greater freedom of movement and flexibility Shock absorber system: highly protective pads in polyurethane foam help reduce the shock felt during high impact
To choose the right size, it is necessary to measure the circumference of the front cannon bone. Take a tape measure and wrap it around the middle of the cannon bone without tightening too much to take the measurement.
Circumference of Front Cannon Bone
17 cm - 20 cm (6.5 to 9 inches)
20 cm - 23 cm (9 to 10 inches)
Over 23 cm (over 10 inches)
If you are buying protection for the hind legs, the measurement is normally taken on the front limb. It is in fact very uncommon that between front and rear legs, there is such a difference to require boots of different sizes.
Many people think that the protection must cover the entire deep flexor tendon even up to the carpus (the knee). Not only the part of the tendon most exposed to trauma is the lowest, but a protection that is too high would just bother the tendon when flexing, particularly during the jump.
