Open Front or Fetlock Boots
For stadium jumping, open front boots and fetlock boots are the preferred choice of many riders. Bit of Britain has a selection of show jumping boots for schooling sessions and competitions. Lightweight poles and shallow jump cups mean stadium faults are easily accrued. While riders wish to avoid tendon injuries, they also want their horse to know he has hit a fence! The solution is open fronted boots, often lined with sheepskin for comfort and to prevent the molded casing of the boot from chafing the leg. Open front boots mean the horse feels the pole if he hits it, but his vulnerable tendons are safeguarded from injury. Fetlock boots pad the protruding ankle area and are particularly useful for horses that go close in their action and are liable to strike the inside of one fetlock with the other. Add a set of open front boots or fetlock boots from Bit of Britain to your tack trunk and use them to perfect your show jumping round.
