The choice of the right jumping boots
Selecting the right jumping boots for your equine can be a tedious task.... There are not only 100 different makes, but the different kinds and material mean that there are apparently infinite possibilities. Equipped with the skills of the boots and your own preference, this option can be much simpler!
Springboots are designed to prevent the horse's feet from being scratched and struck (i.e. from bars and own legs). The most frequent style of the front boots in show jumping is the "open front" boots, which provides shelter along the side and back of the gunbone but is open at the front (this increases sensibility to impinging splints), and short "ankle boots" for the rear feet, which help when brushing the cuffs together.
So, what are some of the choices you have when it comes to jumping boots? - V boots made of plastic: There' s no question that boots made of genuine leathers look both very classy and more traditionally than boots made of synthetics such as wetsuits or plastics.
Cuddly to the legs, they can often offer better wear resistance, but are also more durable (and more easily repaired by a service technician). Plastic boots are light and can be tossed directly into the washer! As far as the boots are concerned, most jumping boots are equipped with Velcro or bucklebelts.
- Lambskin V Neopren lining: The inner linings of jumping boots can offer extra comforts and are particularly important for delicate horses such as chestnut and grey. Lambskin or wool linings are smooth and classy, but can be difficult to keep spotless! Detachable linings, as in our Kentaur'Oxford' jumping boots, can help; the wool is easy to wash (and can be substituted by the wetsuit lining), which means that the wool can be kept for shows.
The neopren linings alone can also ensure convenience and grip and help prevent friction. Anatomically designed boots can help relieve bruises and offer additional wearing comforts. Watch out for boots with a moulded shell around the horse's legs; rigid and unformed boots can cause uneasiness.
- Power boots: In addition to protectors, there are a number of jumping boots that can help increase your horse's power. Pinch/printing boots and weighed boots can help to enhance the technology, care and power of show jumpers when used correctly. For more information, please see our article'How and When to use performance enhancement boots'.
They are just some of the choices you have when it comes to selecting jumping boots. It is also important to consider the fitting of the boots, as misfitted boots can make the horses uncomfortable (and sometimes even injurious). Jumping boots should always be fastened to the outside of the legs with the closures, with sufficient force to allow a single digit to pass between the boots and legs of the horses.
The boots should be taken off as soon as possible after training to prevent too much warmth in the legs. When caring for your jumping boots, it usually depends on what material they are made of.
