Knee & Hock Boots
These boots are an important part of travelling with your horse but can also be used during injury recovery or on horses with arthritic or capped hocks, they can also be used for road work and any strenuous activity.
Knee Boots - Knee boots cover the front of the knees on the front legs to protect against damage to the delicate knee joint if your horse was to fall. They are very poplar when transporting your horse as they protect the knees from banging on any hard surface in the horse box.
Hock Boots - Hock boots are used to cover the back of the knees on the back legs to protect against injury which occurs from leaning back on a hard surface, which is why they are commonly used when transporting your horses to prevent injury from the hard surfaces of the horsebox.
Both Knee and Hock boots provide extra padding to prevent injury from collision with any hard surfaces, obstacles or even their own knees. Some of our brands of knee and hock boots are Veredus and WoofWear which both have temperature control, are excellent fit and help to prevent abrasion and swelling. Different materials allow the boot to do different things, PU leather has 2 layers so this material provides extra protection for the shell of the boot. PoronXrd material is lightweight, soft, contouring and absorbs over 90% of energy when presented with impact, this makes it a good material for the strike area of the knee and hock boots. Neoprene material is a flexible water resistant fabric, this allows the leg to be able to breathe and keep cool and keep water at bay.
