Horse Boots That Provide Support?
Does anyone out there know a brand of horse leg boots that actually provide some support to tendons and ligaments, and not just protection from overreach and interference injuries (my Eskadron gel boots are good for that)? I know that a horse can incur tendon and ligament injuries regardless of protective/supportive boots, but Maisie would benefit, I think, from some suspensory support to allow her to do normal work. I have some old Sports Medicine II boots that probably help as they do have a lower strap that is supposed to provide some suspensory support, but they're very bulky and also don't have good ventilation. I can't imagine that having overheated legs on these hot days is doing her ligaments any good.
