Travel Boots & Accessories
Horse Travel Boots & Tail Guards
It is always exciting when you set out on the road. However, travelling can be hazardous for your horse. Horses can become stressed, restless and agitated by the travelling process and this can lead to injuries. It is wise to invest in the right horse travel products to ensure that your horse receives the best protection. From horse travel boots to tail guards we have a range of accessories to help keep your equestrian friend safe in transit.
Protect Your Horse's Legs
Your travel gear should certainly include horse travel boots. Horses’ lower legs are extremely vulnerable and so are prone to injury in transit. You should fit your horse with horse travel boots every time you use your horse box. When horses become agitated or bored on the road they can injure themselves and they may suffer from knocks caused by sudden movements of the vehicle. Other horses in the box also represent a hazard.
Horse travel boots are longer and have more padding than the other boots that you may use. Their primary function is protection and so they do not need to offer the same freedom of movement as the boots your horse wear when you are riding. You should ensure that the boots are fitted tight enough not to slip but not so tight as to be uncomfortable.
Introduce Travel Boots Gradually
Your horse may not be happy with the boots when they first have to wear them. For this reason it is best to acclimatise them to the travel boots before they make their first journey wearing them. You can do this by fitting the boots for short periods of time at the stable until your horse is no longer concerned by them.
