Elastic Paces! When the Kentucky Armadillo Aero Cadence Fetlock & Tendon Boots were launched last year, they proved a huge hit with show-jumpers worldwide. This year, the brand have introduced an elasticated strap version called the Kentucky Horsewear Armadillo Aero Elastic Tendon and Fetlock Boot. he boot design was originally inspired by Kentucky Horsewear’s passion for contemporary art and was designed in conjunction with leading international show-jumper Lars Nieberg and his groom Anna Sünkel. The boot marries together the latest in technical materials, with the emphasis on protection, comfort and freedom of movement without compromising on style. The new design remain the same with a tough outer shell casing which is styled in an extremely light yet strong TPU outer shell to protect against impact, whilst the tendon and fetlock areas are both reinforced with D3O shock absorbing molecules for the ultimate in protection. Laboratory tests have shown that the boots absorb impact more than 50% better than any other boot currently on the market, with the ability to disperse a heavy blow equivalent to that which would actually break a human bone. The tendon area of the boot intelligent ventilation holes to help prevent legs and tendons over-heating, whilst the neoprene lining is also perforated, making these boots incredibly breathable, as well as offering excellent cushioning against the skin. The tendon boot also a higher cut out design than traditional tendon boots to allow total freedom of movement around the pastern area, when the horse is jumping. Consideration is also paid to giving optimum freedom and comfort about the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference. The fetlock boots also feature a special ‘strike zone’, which is also filled with D3O to give the hind fetlock joint optimum protection from injuries caused by the horse as it leaves the ground before a fence. Both tendon and fetlock boots feature an open front and the new double elasticated insertion within the strap design has been developed to cater for those riders who want a boot, which offers the ultimate in protection, yet this more traditional design aspect. Sold in pairs.

These held up nicely and provide a wonderful amount of shock absorbency. When I say that it is worth every penny, I mean it truly! My horse has a tendency to sweat pretty badly when I use open front boots of any kind, and with these he has never broken a sweat- thank you to the company, for helping my horse stay comfortable and safe while we do what we both enjoy.
Incredibly good coatings! Works very well and the horses have not every injured after they were bought. Have jumped up to 160 without the horses having problems with the legs afterwards! Very satisfied!!
Strong with good cushioning against impact. fine details and very soft "spongy" inside that prevents chafing.
