Splint boots are used to protect a horse's legs during exercise, protecting the lower leg from injury that may occur if one leg or hoof strikes the opposite leg. Splint boots may also be placed on horses in the field to protect them if they get overly excited. Other reasons for use may include placement on a young or unfit horse which may be excitable and step on itself, or on horses subject to intense work that may may stumble more if they are tired.
Courbette splint boots are made of 5/16" Premium neoprene which is a non-porous closed cell rubber bonded to nylon lining on both sides for added strength. All supports are made of genuine leather and the seams are bonded. Fits the back legs and has three Velcro closures. Stock photo used.
