The first jump-enhancing ankle boot that guarantees double ventilation! More dangerous than any impact is the effect of heat buildup on your horse's legs. The Veredus® VENTO releases heat through their exclusive double ventilation system. Cool air is drawn in through the bottom vents and heat is released through the top vents. Air circulation within the boot is aided with Aerox micro perforated neoprene and 3D Mesh Ducted fabric.
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.
