D3OThe Kentucky Solimbra D3O Eventing Boots contain an exciting high performance materialcalled D3O, which offers outstanding shock absorption and protection on impact – crucial when riding cross-country. D3O is patented technology, which has long been used within protective clothing and footwear, including motorcycling clothing, sportswear and even stunt apparel. Extremely comfortable and offering maximum flexibility, D3O had the ability to lock together on immediate impact to absorb and disperse energy from a strike or blow, then instantly return to its flexible state. D3O has been tested to the highest standards and now this revolutionary material has been included within horse boot design for the very first time.


Extensively trailed by top professional riders prior to their launch, these anatomically designed lightweight boots also feature a laminated ‘Solimbra’ outer, which offers all-weather protection and keeps your boots looking and performing the way they should!Solimbra

And the high-tech features don’t stop there. The eventing boots are also laminated with Solimbra all weather resistant fabric. Solimbra is highly breathable and has been scientifically tested under the 


harshest conditions to be 100 per cent waterproof, UV resistant and oil repellent. This ensures that the boots remain dry and lightweight whatever the weather and ground conditions, and because Solimbra is breathable it allows for the release of heat from those important tendon structures. The Solimbra fabric is also stronger than Ballistic Nylon.


Kentucky Eventing Boots are also anatomically shaped to provide a perfect fit and support of the Tendon and the first eventing boots that protect the fetlock, and feature polyethylene strike guards and a breathable neoprene lining. Super-strong Velcro straps ensure the boots stay in place, while the soft suede binding reduces the risk of rubbing.



With a breathable eva and neoprene lining, these boots continue the ‘Protect And Perform’ theme with a polyethylene guard at the tendon, whilst the suede binding and generous tough Velcro straps with a distinctive Kentucky logo finish the look and performance of these revolutionary eventing boots.


Thanks to the use of all the high quality materials the boots have an extremely long lifetime and still look new after years of multiple heavy uses on the cross country.


Since their launch in Europe, USA and Australia, sales of the boots have continued to grow rapidly - proving to be a popular choice amongst both top professional riders and serious amateurs, again giving further confidence to British riders on their performance and credibility, so when it comes to protection on the move, these boots happily leap into the 21st Century!

REACHING FOR THE TOP


In this feature, Thomas Tuytens, MD and owner of Kentucky Horsewear, the technical horse boot brand talks about their unique over-reach boots and why when it comes to performance and protection, they are unbeatable….


The Kentucky Overreach Boots have a patented design, which also incorporates a new concept in over reach boots, seeing closer contact with the horse’s pastern. By fitting the boots, this way, people often think they are a little too small, but they are designed to be fitted in such a way that they have contact with the horses’ pastern. Their design protects the largest part of the hoof bulb and pastern and thanks to their anatomic design and the ‘no turn ball’ inside the overreach boots, they stay in place.



The Kentucky Horsewear overreach boots are also extremely shock absorbing with the combination of D3O, EVA and neoprene offering 60% better shock absorbing, than the best overreach boots currently on the market! Kentucky offer two versions, one styled in the all-weather material Solimbra and also in PVC leather, which is slightly heavier and popular amongst dressage horses and driving horses.



Over-reach injuries can see your competition horse out of work for several months and after one of her top horses was sidelined for 6 months with such an injury, international event rider Karin Donckers now never rides without her Kentucky Over-Reach Boots. Top show-jumper Lars Nieberg uses Kentucky over-reach boots, as does UK eventer Francis Whittington. Francis believes them to be an essential part of his training, schooling and competition wear due to their outstanding performance and quality.


Another important factor to consider is that with horses with extremely sensitive skin at the pastern, you can still use our overreach boots with the additional protective layer of our Tendon Grip, which can be used as a second skin to protect the boots from rubbing.




If however, your horse does unfortunately suffer from an over-reach injury, here is some advice:


1. Firstly you need to assess the level of lameness.


2. If your horse has cut himself deeply, you need to stop any bleeding immediately and apply a clean bandage with pressure over the wound for at least 5 minutes


3. We would recommend that you also clean the wound by cold hosing, not only will this help flush out debris but it will also help with swelling


4. You need to also look at the whole leg with regard to injury, as there may be other damage to the leg not just at the site of the injury. You can use wound gel and dresses on the injury is it is minor, however if in doubt, always contact your vet.


5. Invest in some Kentucky Over Reach Boots –the best choice that you can make in protecting your horse’s heels!
