Choosing the right Tri-Zone Boot for Your Horse.
The Tri-Zone range of boots are trusted by owners and riders to offer tested protection for their horse. While the Tri-Zone range undergoes independent safety testing (find out more about our testing here), there is one exception to this rule, which is the Tri-Zone Brushing Boot. But we still believe there is a place for it in our horses’ wardrobes. Read on to see what each boot is suitable for, and which would be best for your horse.

The Tri-Zone Brushing Boot.
It may not offer tested protection, but it does still utilise the same strike guard material as the rest of the Tri-Zone range on the inside of your horses’ leg, which is tested. The Brushing Boots are super flexible to mould to your horses’ legs with soft neoprene. They wear well, look smart and are easy to use. For low level work when the weather isn’t too warm, and for horses who are at little to no risk of injuring their legs, this could be the boot for them. We would advise putting them on last when tacking up and taking them off as soon as possible after work, like we would for any boot, just to minimise the time they spend on your horses’ legs. However, if you are doing fast work, long rides, or hard schooling sessions we’d advise considering another boot.
The Tri-Zone All Sports Boots.
This boot is essentially the ‘step up’ from the Brushing Boot. Well suited to the all rounder who does a bit of everything, but equally the happy hacker who enjoys long or fast rides, or goes through water! The All Sports Boots provide protection to the entire lower leg, including an internal strike guard over the tendon area, all while remaining lightweight, breathable and flexible. These boots are great for cross country, jumping, schooling, hacking or even turnout! Available in multiple sizes, including XXS, Medium Wide and Medium Narrow to fit all varieties of horses and ponies.
The Tri-Zone Impact Sports Boots.
If you want maximum protection for your horse, this is the boot for you. While normally recommended for high impact sports such as cross country, polo or racing, if your horse is accident prone, ‘all legs’ or if you’re concerned about them – this boot could certainly work for you. Unlike both the Brushing Boots and All Sports, the Impact Sports Boots have a specific hind boot for maximum coverage. They have a similar make up to the All Sports Boots, but feature thicker material, as well as external strike guards placed in high-risk areas.
The Tri-Zone Open Fronted Boots.
Essentially an Impact Sports Boot with a open front, these tendon boots provide maximum protection to the tendon area, as well as some protection to the sides of the leg, leaving the front of the leg open and more vulnerable. Commonly used for show jumping but could also be considered for other activities due to the open front nature allowing more air too the leg and the potential to keep it cooler than the Impact Sports Boots. Designed to pair perfectly with the Tri-Zone Fetlock Boots, which have a smooth lining and measurements to comply with governing body requirements*.
