What is the inspiration behind the Impact Sports Boot?
There are so many things to consider when purchasing horse boots, Equilibrium wanted to offer a boot where you didn't have to compromise at all. Generally, if you go for a hard shell/very protective boot, it can be heavy, inflexible, and unbreathable. Likewise, a lightweight boot might be more breathable and flexible, but won't offer the protection that is needed. The Impact Sports Boots offers protection that is tested to withstand overreaching, hitting a cross country fence, etc, yet still retains all the other desired features to keep your horse comfortable and their legs in good shape!
Protection provided by the Impact Sports Boots for horses.
The boot design uses a five-layer system, each chosen for their unique properties. The first layer is providing an inner lining that sits against the horse's leg. Made from perforated EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate), the liner sits comfortably against the leg. The perforations allow heat to escape and aids breathability, while the flexibility of the material allows it to mould to the horse's leg.
Layer two is a strong nylon mesh. This adds another layer of protection to the sports boots, but also stops any debris making its way into the boot towards your horse's leg.
Layer three is the internal guard made from vinyl - a string, durable and moisture resistant material. This layer is placed over the vulnerable tendon area and is made with strips of material to allow it to mould around the horses’ leg. This allows the horse to move freely without the feeling of a ‘splint’.
The fourth layer is an EVA waffle. Commonly used in the soles of human shoes and as padding on sports equipment, this material is durable, breathable, and protective! We’ve made sure it's easy to clean and maintain too!
Finally, layer five includes strategically placed vinyl strike guards. On the front boot, these are placed down the vulnerable tendon area, as well as at the front of the boot. On the hind boot, they cover most of the inside of the horses' leg.
