Horses are animals that are very easily injured, especially those that lead a more active life. Preventing this type of problem is simple, and can greatly extend the sporting life of your horse.

There are different types of work protectors that help prevent injuries, we´ll talk a little bit about it below:

Bell boots

They are generally placed on the forelimbs, protecting the crown and heels.

To put the bell boots closed you have to insert them upside down and then turn them over to place it correctly.

On the other hand, the opened ones are much easier to put on, you just have to realize that the closure must be oriented towards the outside of the limb, in this way we prevent the Velcro of  bell boots from sticking and cause your horse to stumble.


Protective boots

As they protect the front part, the interior, and the tendons of the extremities they are very complete.

To put them, follow a few simple steps:

- It begins by tying the central buckle or velcro strip.

- The rest of the strips are closed without tightening them too much

The position is the same as the bell boots, the closures are arranged towards the external side to prevent them from sticking.


Fetlock boots

They are placed on the hind limbs to protect your horse from different blows. Again, the closures always have to be positioned outwards.
