The Best Cross Country Boots for Horses
Your horse needs just as much protection as you do during high impact activities such as Cross Country. It is important that you have the correct protection that works well for your your horse. Your horse’s legs must be protected not only from obstacles but also their own hooves, over-extending and hitting their leg in front could cause serious damage.
The most important feature of a cross country boot is that they help to absorb any impact or shock should your Horse or Pony’s legs come in to contact with a cross country jump and also provide protection to the Tendon from over reaching.
We supply a range of different cross country boots that are all lightweight, strong and comfortable, providing the best protection for your horse. Here at Discount Equestrian we have a wide range of brands and styles of Cross Country boots available including Woof Wear, Weatherbeeta, Veredus, Lemieux and Equick, all at great prices!
The range of cross country boots that we stock include boots with 360-degree protection for the horse and boots which shape to the horse’s leg for a natural fit. Most modern cross country boots are designed with lightness and flexibility in mind, some are even made up with multiple layers allowing air to flow through helping to keep the legs and importantly tendons cool. Most boots are also typically waterproof or at least designed to absorb minimal water.
It is important not to overlook providing the best safety equipment possible for your Horse or Pony, this includes whether your competing in a cross country event or just out on a hack in the country. All the Cross-Country boots that we stock are secure, supportive and quick and easy to put on and adjust, along with being easily washable and quick drying.
Cross country – also abbreviated as ‘XC’ – is an exhilarating branch of equestrianism, though it is taxing on your horse’s limbs and can increase the risk of injury in comparison to other categories of our sport, such as dressage. Therefore, the dedicated team here at Discount Equestrian work tirelessly to source highly technical products for our phenomenal Cross County Boots range, so both you and your horse can enjoy the sport you love, safe in the knowledge that your horse’s legs are protected.
There are many innovative features to be discovered in cross country boots, such as shock absorption, impact protection, cannon bone and tendon support, flexibility, and breathability, as well as the use of lightweight, waterproof materials. All these fantastic features work in synchronicity to enhance your horse’s comfort, which, naturally, improves their performance.
Here at Discount Equestrian, we are proud to present the best cross country boots in the equestrian marketplace! Following, you’ll find a small selection of the incredibly innovative Cross Country Boots available in this amazing collection:
Equilibrium® Tri-Zone All Sports Boots – “Perfect all-round horse boots for schooling, cross country, jumping, hacking or turnout. If you need more strike protection, our Tri-zone Impact Sports Boots are the perfect step up. Designed to meet the needs of the amateur rider all the way up to the demands of top international competitors, Tri-Zone boots are tested by an independent safety testing laboratory to check their ability to protect against concussion and penetration injuries. Breathable, flexible, protective and lightweight, the Tri-Zone All Sports Boot is one of the most versatile on the market, designed to be suitable for a wide range of disciplines.”
Veredus® eVento Cross Country Boots, Front – “The ‘must have’ pair of boots for cross country lovers! Used by Andrew Nicholson and Oliver Townend, Veredus E-Vento Cross Country Boots are made from a flexible, lightweight material. These boots are highly protective, yet don’t have a rigid shell that could be damaged and exacerbate injuries. Microperforated neoprene AEROX allows your horse's skin to breathe, as well as to avoid sweating and overheating their tendons. Your horse is kept cool and comfortable as these boots are waterproof; they don’t absorb or retain water despite weather and terrain conditions, making them perfect for splashing through water jumps! This boot is of a reduced weight, allowing greater freedom of movement and flexibility. These boots also maintain a shock absorber system of highly protective pads in polyurethane foam, helping to reduce the shock felt during high impact, such as landing after jumping big cross country fences.”
LeMieux® Carbon Air XC Boots Black, Front – “The new LeMieux Carbon Air brings the latest in protection design to a smart and durable XC boot. These fully vented XC boots allow air to strategically flow through the boot to keep tendons cool. Cutting edge shock absorption and tendon support, with a flexible polycarbonate strike guard, provide superior protection to prevent injury, while still keeping a super-lightweight profile. The close-fit, new, perforated EVA lining is ultra-soft and non-slip, with an elasticated, central locking strap keeping the boot securely in place. These boots are perfect to withstand the rigour of cross country, and can also be used as tough everyday work boots.”
Kentucky® Eventing Boots Air Tech, Hind – “This extremely strong and shock absorbing Air Tech Eventing Boot offers the best protection and comfort for your horse during cross-country. The Air Tech Eventing Boot is made of 5 layers. On the inside, there is a breathable knitted lining which ensures a soft feeling against the skin and prevents rubbing, this lining also prevents the boot from slipping or turning. The second layer is 5mm thick EVA foam; this material is extremely light, shock absorbing, and offers stability, as well as being perforated with ventilation holes to allow heat to escape so your horse’s legs don’t overheat. The third layer is a 2mm thick TPU hard shell that stops the largest impact and prevents penetration from horseshoes or studs. On the front of the hind leg, we added another layer of 5mm thick EVA foam to provide extra protection in case your horse touches a jump.”
Majyk Equipe® Color Elite XC Boot, Front – “Featuring a unique fit that won’t inhibit your horse's movement, the outer is constructed from a super-strong yet lightweight rip-stop material, bonded over a breathable mesh. Inside the boot is a four-way flexion strike plate, designed to work with a horse’s movement by forming a hard wall when faced with impact. ARTi-LAGE dilatant material lines the inside of the strike area for ultimate protection. The proprietary material is soft and pliable in its normal state, but changes its molecular structure to harden when struck, deflecting impact and dispersing the energy. Lined with a non-neoprene, bio-foam interior, these boots are super soft but still grip your horse’s leg securely. The lightweight foam has extra-large perforations, so air can circulate to prevent overheating. Worn by the Olympic USA Eventing Team in 2016, these boots are available in a beautiful array of colours such as black/blue, black/orange, black/purple, black/red, and black/turquoise.”
