The thrill of barrel racing comes from the speed of the sport. When your horse is training, competing or recovering, they are constantly feeling the strain of the sport. The FlowBoot protects and supports areas of the leg that are prone to injury due to the speed and agility required in barrel racing.
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.
Sesamoiditis, an inflammation associated with the proximal sesamoid bones in the fetlock joint, is a common injury in barrel racing horses. The FlowBoot was designed to support the fetlock joint during physical exertion. 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.
