Polo is one of the fastest, most challenging team sports available. When you step onto the polo field, you need reassurance that your pony is protected from any discomfort or stress. The FlowBoot protects and supports areas of the leg that are prone to injury due to the speed, balance and agility required in polo.
The open-cell foam boot absorbs heat and is designed around anatomical equine structures, so no damage is caused by support wrapping. Extra cushion and support protect the ligaments of the proximal sesamoid bones to reduce load and hyperextension.
Tendon injuries are a common risk to polo ponies, which is why we’ve designed the FlowBoot to protect the tendons and ligaments most affected by injuries. The open front design of the FlowBoot creates a bridge to relieve pressure from the digital extensor tendon. The boot also has grooves that correspond to and create bridges over the palmar digital veins, ensuring proper blood circulation.
The support of the wrap combined with the flexibility of the anatomically correct boot allow for full movement. Your horse won’t feel any restriction, only support.
