Iconoclast Orthopedic Support Boots feature our patented Double Sling Straps for unparalleled lateral support. With its evenly distributed support to the suspensory branches, Iconoclast is the only boot that truly lists and cradles the equine leg. Designed to reduce joint interference and restriction, this is the perfect all around boot for every equine discipline.
Designed to use every day while riding to aid in the prevention of soft tissue damage of the lower legs, Iconoclast Orthopedic Support Boots will help your horse feel more confident with each step he takes, in and out of the arena.
THE ICONOCLAST DIFFERENCE
The Iconoclast Orthopedic Support Boot has absolutely REVOLUTIONIZED equine leg support. Iconoclast Boots are specifically designed to support and protect the suspensory and sesamoidial regions by providing 360-degree support of the equine athlete through a strap on, non-restrictive device.
Our entire line of Iconoclast Boots were designed by horse trainers and leading veterinarians who were unsatisfied with the performance of every other equine boot in the market place. The equine leg needs support and protection against the daily rigors of extreme physical activities. There has not been a boot that adequately meets both of those demands until now.
EXTRA TALL ORTHOPEDIC SUPPORT BOOTS DESIGN & FUNCTION
Performance horses need extra support because they are exposed to difficult maneuvers such as hard stops, backing, deep turns, jumps and long, full strides. As a result of performing these maneuvers the hock reaches a fully flexed position and a “vertical load” force is applied to the hock joints and the soft tissue of the lower limbs. Since the suspensory ligament attaches at the top of the cannon bone, just below the lower hock joints, it can become stressed or injured due to these forces from above. The extra height of this new boot will help to save the upper suspensory ligament from injury during these strenuous performance maneuvers. The Iconoclast Extra Tall Orthopedic Sport Boots feature four upper straps in addition to our patented Double Sling Straps which wrap around the base of the fetlock, lifting and cradling it with unparalleled 360-degree lateral support. Iconoclast Boots provide properly balanced support to the vertically moving tissue of the equine leg. No other boot or wrap in the industry can give this much, real, balanced, proper support.
THAT IS THE ICONOCLAST DIFFERENCE!
MEASUREMENT AND SIZING
The sizing chart below is appropriate for all Iconoclast Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Boots. We recommend using a soft tape measure. If you do not have a soft tape measure you can use something like string and wrap it around the fetlock, mark where the end meets the rest of the string and then simply lay it flat next to a tape measure or ruler to get your measurement.
Be sure to measure bot the FRONT & BACK fetlocks as they are often different sizes. Customers regulary order boots in one size for the front legs and a different size for the hind legs.
