Choosing the Best Splint Boots for Horses

Splint boots for horses also called brushing boots, are designed to protect the lower legs from injuries that can occur during exercise if a hoof or leg hits the opposite leg. Splint boots for horses are often held in place with strong hook and loop closures to prevent slippage. The hook and loop closures go outside the horse’s legs and close facing towards the hind legs.

The inner section of a splint boot contains the strike pad. The strike pad of the splint boot protects the fetlock and inside of the cannon bone from impact or brushing from other legs. The strike pad of the splint boot is often padded for more shock-absorbing power.

Splint boots are lightweight and flexible, including a built-in strike plate, hypoallergenic lining, and a waterproof design. By taking measures to protect your horse's legs with splint boots, you can help prevent injuries during exercise.
