The Boyd Martin Hyperflex Foam Hind X Country boot is the ultimate boot for x country and eventing.
This boot was designed in conjunction with Boyd Martin, the world class three day event champion and member of the 2012 and 2016 US Olympic Eventing Equestrian Team.
The super lightweight boot is constructed from a strong rip-stop TPU material that is permanently fused to the breathable inner mesh fabric. Inside the boot is a four-way flexion TPU shield designed to flex with the horse’s movement but form a hard barrier during impact. In addition to the flexible TPU shield, we have added 2 mm of ARTi-LAGE™foam directly behind the TPU shield. ARTi-LAGE™ is a proprietary material soft and pliable in its normal state but able to change its molecular structure to harden when struck, deflecting impact away from the strike point and dispersing the energy.
XC Color Elite front boots have an ARTi-LAGE™ barrier in the front and a Flexible TPU shield in the back of the boot protecting the front of the cannon bone from bruising and the back of the leg from potential overreach. Our hind boots have a double barrier of ARTi-LAGE™and Flexible TPU shield in front of the boot, providing unsurpassed protection for the canon bone. Finished with USA brand velcro closures and the signature 'Boyd Martin' logo, these boots are worn by the Olympian himself both for training and in competition.
Medium fits most horses 15.2 hands to 16.3 hands.
Large fits most horses 17+ hands.
Please note that our XC boots are sized proportionally to fit front and hind legs. If your horse is a medium size in front he/she should be medium size in hind unless the hind legs have unusually long canon bones. Please see 'Fit your Horse' for more precise fitting instructions.
