McLain Ward On How EquiFit Boots Differ


MCLAIN WARD: One of the great things about
the D-Teq boots is that they’re made in the USA and made to fit the horse, compared to
an injection-mold style boot where a plastic mold is formed and really has no way of adjusting
or being supple to the horse’s legs and the different shapes and sizes that they come
in. So we find that we have far less rubs and
irritation with the D-Teq boots. The ImpacTeq liners are made up of two separate
layers – one an air mesh layer, another a foam layer – and really allows for great protection
with a horse that’s obviously competing at high levels, travelling. The chance of a large,
quite strong impact, and I find that the protection level is really unprecedented in any other
product out on the market. The anti-microbial properties in the liners
help prevent a buildup of gunk, bacteria, and different things that affect the horse’s
legs. They, over time with simple maintenance, stay soft and supple, continue to mold to
the horse’s legs, and you don’t have the bacteria or the different things that cause ailments,
such as scratches and irritation, which is a huge problem we deal with, particularly
with travel and the different types of surfaces we compete on, and the sweating during work
and competition. One of the things you don’t want is the boot to get heavier and carry
the water. The water is basically dried out through the liners quite quickly, keeps the
boot light, almost like a second layer of skin for the horses. EquiFit’s EverLeather boot shells hold up
great to scratches, punctures, any kind of heavy trauma that the boot might incur during
competition or heavy work. They hold up great over the test of time with easy maintenance.
They always look pristine. And American-made is something we’re always very proud of here
at our stable.
