The SMB3 Sports Medicine Boot is sets a standard for equine comfort with premium features you expect from a Professional’s Choice product. The exterior is constructed with Professional’s Choice signature limestone-based neoprene. Together with an UltraShock lining, the SMB-3 safeguards the cannon bone, tendons and soft tissue, while absorbing energy from hoof impact. The slightly longer suspensory strap stretches upon each impact of the hoof, allowing full ankle movement, helping to eliminate hyperextension of the fetlock. The SMB3 is cut back at the lower front to allow for proper fit when used with any Professional’s Choice bell boot. It also has lycra binding with a slight stretch that creates a more snug fit, both along the top and bottom of the boot, helping to keep dirt out. Once again, the Professional's Choice motto is achieved, The more comfortable the horse, the better the performance.
As an incentive to conscientious horsemen who realize the benefits of booting all four legs, we are offering a Value 4-Pack which contains a full set of both front and rear SMB3 boots at a substantial savings. We receive countless affirmations from horsemen crediting our Sports Medicine Boots with saving their horses from catastrophic leg injuries. According to a study conducted at the University of Minnesota, thoroughbred race horses booted with front SMBs exhibited increased comfort wearing the boots as they shifted their weight forward. Combining the high level of protection and energy absorption with minimal effects on the gait, the Sports Medicine Boot is a valuable tool in prevention of lower limb injuries during training and performance, as well as a valuable addition to the treatment regime for rehabilitating horses with limb injuries. Booting all four legs allows the horse to comfortably maintain its normal distribution of weight.
