Tested to the Limits
As riders, we protect our most vital areas (head and torso) with riding hats, body protectors and more recently air jackets. Rider protective equipment is subjected to extensive testing to meet standards and regulations and we believe that as a vital part of your horse, protective boots for your horse’s legs should undergo a similar testing process.
Tri-Zone Open Fronted boots go through a unique 3-phase testing process giving you confidence that you are choosing the best leg protection for your horse. Materials are carefully selected to provide maximum protection but without being bulky, heavy and not make your horses legs hot and sweaty. Each individual layer in the Tri-Zone Open Fronted boot is researched and sourced for their advanced technical properties and tested in an independent laboratory before it goes anywhere near a horse’s leg.
What Materials Do We Use?
EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate) is a material which is tough and flexible even at low temperatures. It has a number of uses in various different states and forms including in ski boots, bicycle saddles, hockey pads, wakeboard boots, fishing rods and shock absorbers in sports shoes.
The inner layer of EVA is used as a shock absorber and is is formed into pillows to provide maximum comfort. In the Tri-Zone Open Fronted boot the inner EVA also has tiny holes to allow heat from the leg to escape.
Strategically placed integral TPU strips form protective panels to protect the most vulnerable areas of the horse’s leg and are placed between the inner and outer layers.
The outer layer is an EVA mesh which helps disperse concussion to reduce the risk of injury and also allows heat to escape freely from inside the boot.
TPU is outstandingly tough and resistant to abrasion making it the ideal material to have as a strike pad in the areas where the leg really needs protecting such as the tendon area.
