Leg guards while riding are there to protect your horse's tendons. There are several products that can protect your horse's legs such as tendon guards, fetlock guards, jump boots, bandages and transport guards.
Tendon guards are designed for the front legs of the horse. These are particularly recommended when your horse is tapping his front leg with his hind hooves, this can lead to nasty injuries.
Bullet guards are designed for horses that brush past each other with their hind legs. Fetlock boots are also known as stroking boots.
Bandages are used primarily for appearance. They do not have a hard exterior as tendon and ball pads do. Therefore, they provide only minimal protection.
Jumping boots are used in show jumping to protect the hoof balls, crown rim and hooves from bumping. This can happen due to tapping during jumping.
Transport boots protect the horse's legs while transporting it by trailer or truck.
