The plastic plates are designed to withstand impact, penetration and puncture from outside elements while maintaining the integrity of the materials. The protective system will not splinter or crack and the plastic plates are ventilated, yet strong, to provide exceptional ventilation and comfort. Removable suspenders on some models of protective equipment are easy to adjust and will provide a custom fit for most body types. The antibacterial function aids with maintaining comfort and cleanliness and will withstand routine cleaning to keep the vests looking and feeling like new. The fastening system at the waist is highly adjustable and eliminates back discomfort while providing flexible support. Once you experience the comfort and peace of mind from personal protective equipment from Zandona, you will never ride in anything else.
Protective fetlock and galloping boots from Zandona are designed to protect the horse from the rigors of jumping and speed and are ergonomically designed to form to the delicate joints of the jumper or eventing mount. These boots are created with a gel padding and Neoprene support while some styles include carbon fiber to thermally insulate the joints from friction and impact. The carefully calibrated closures are easy to fasten with a quick-release system and can be replaced as necessary due to regular use and wear. The double locking system prevents mishaps from loose boots to aid with safety. Protective boots with natural lambskin lining are offered for horses with sensitivity or those who wish to provide additional comfort to the legs.
