Dalmar eventing boots - Carbon fibre is used in these hind Eventer boots by Dalmar providing superior injury prevention from accidental impacts. The patented Aircooling system prevents overheating, a common problem with most boots. New 2012 design, see below for more details.

Conventional boots and bandages insulate the horses' tendons and prevent heat escaping. The Dalmar patented cooling system utilises the high speed cold air hitting the front of the horses' leg to pass through the boot and to cool the tendons while the horse gallops.
Before fitting ensure that the horse's legs and the insides of the boots are clean and free from stones or dirt.
Position the boot above the fetlock joint, close the hook and hoop fasteners.
Slide the boot downward until it meets its correct position on the fetlock joint. The protective sides of the boots should correspond to the inside of the joint where the protection is needed.
The fasteners wraps anti-clockwise around the left side leg and clockwise around the right leg, like traditional bandages. When applied correctly the brand labels should be facing forward.
When applied correctly, the brand labels should be facing outward. The flexible flap to protect the front of the joint should be positioned at the front of the fetlock joint. Also if fitted correctly the top front of the boot should not interfere with the front of the hock joint at maximum hock flexion.
When applied correctly the boots should not be free to slide up or down or rotate around the leg during use. If the boot appears loose reapply it putting greater tension on the fastener.

Care InstructionsTo Clean
Horseware did take on board some comments that we received previously and examined a proportionate amount of the boots that presented issues. In the majority of those cases, the boots were found to be very worn on the inside and when a hard impact was made, the strike plate absorbed the shock and force of the impact, and in some cases, broke in the process. Due to the high level of wear on the inside of the boot, it may have been possible that the edge of the strike plate, whether broken or not, was able to rub the horses leg. We would never recommend continued use of a boot that has suffered wear on the inside. Note: The new design has a light neoprene lining to help prevent excessive wear on the inside of the boot.
The strike plate is not designed to never break as the force of impact has to be absorbed in some way. However we have made improvements to parts of the boot including the strike plate as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping our products fresh. If your horse suffers a severe impact that shatters the strike plate, it will not affect his leg if the inside of the boot is well maintained.

3 stars Used this item in a cross country clinic the day we got them. We have the front boots and love them. These are a little long and not as adjustable as others we have tried. Once thefabric touches, you cannot tighten any more. So you really have to know your fit. We had fitted someone elses before we bought which I highly suggest. Even then, I think they are a bit big for our horse as they slid down when the leg hit a bank coming out of the water.

Material: Carbon fibre
Carbon fibre reinforced plastic is made from long thin sheets of graphite-like carbon packed to form a fibre and a resin. It has the highest specific tensile strength of all the reinforced materials, and it has a high strength to weight ratio and low coefficient of thermal expansion. The density of carbon fibre is also vastly lower than the density of steel.
Carbon fibre takes the form of several thousand long, thin strands of material which are mostly composed of carbon atoms.
Carbon Fibre Strike Protection
In the event of an accidental strike the force of the impact is distributed over the entire length of the boot and immediately deflected away from the horses Flexor Tendons and Suspensory Ligaments.
