Many performance horses wear hind boots to protect their hind legs during exercise. From jumping oxers and galloping courses to collected work and transitions, your horse's hind legs work hard over the duration of your ride. Hind boots protect your horse's cannon bones, tendons, and fetlock joints from the effects of impact of the footing or jump poles as well as interference from your horse's opposite hind hoof.
We carry high-quality hind boots from your favorite equestrian brands including EquiFit, Eskadron, Intrepid International, Professional's Choice, and Woof Wear, in addition to our selection of fetlock boots and splint boots, which are also appropriate for your horse's hind legs. Many equestrians turn to synthetic hind boots due to their durability and easy-to-care-for materials. Simply brush off or hose off any mud, dirt, sweat, or horse hair after your ride and they are ready for your next adventure in the saddle.
Hind boots are popular among hunter/jumper, dressage, eventing, and western horseback riders for schooling purposes. Some jumper, eventer, reiner, barrel racing, and gymkhana exhibitors also utilize hind boots for their horses during competitions. Be sure to refer to your association's rule book or speak to a certified steward if you have any questions regarding the legality of any new tack or equipment.
