Professional's Choice VenTECH Elite Hind Boots
The VenTECH Sports Medicine Boot Elite is available in two designs, accommodating the front and hind legs. Knowing that each leg functions differently, the VenTECH Elite SMB is contoured to provide exceptional fit and function.It is important to choose the correct size for your horse to get the optimum benefits from the VenTECH Elite SMB. In the abovechart there are circumference and height measurements. The circumference measurement of the boot is more critical than theheight because the boot must fit around the horser's leg and overlap 1/2" to 1.5" to be effective. When sizing the height of thehorse and the coarseness of the bone should be taken into account, but these should not be the only determining factors. The VenTECH Elite SMB is available in small, medium and large sizes (X-Large are not VenTECH). As a general rule, horses will use the same size on both the front and hind legs. For instance, many mature horses wear the VenTECH Elite SMB in a medium on the front and an VenTECH Elite SMB medium on the hind leg as well. However, in such instances where a horse may have pronounced size differences in the fetlocks, the horse may wear a smaller size in the front than in the rear, or vice- versa. To choose the correct size, refer to the above chart. If you are still unsure which size to purchase, you should measure the circumference of your horse's front and rear fetlocks at the widest point. After doing so, choose the boot size that is the next bigger size than your measurement.As an example, if your horse's fetlock measures 10.75" in the front and 11.5" in the rear, you shouldchoose a pair of VenTECH Elite SMB in a large for both the front and rear.
