We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The new VenTech™ Elite Sports Medicine Boot is the new standard for equine comfort with all the premium features you expect from a Professional's Choice product. The exclusive new VenTech™ technology is lightweight and multi-layered with a ventilated, limestone-based neoprene exterior and UltraShock™ lining. The ventilated neoprene conforms to your horse, allows heat and moisture to escape, and keeps your horse cool, comfortable and performing at it's best. The boot provides 360 degrees of protection, safeguarding the cannon bone, tendons and soft tissue, and is proven to absorb over 26% of energy from hoof impact. The uniquely designed suspensory strap stretches with each stride, allowing full ankle movement and helping to eliminate hyper extension of the fetlock. The distinctive angle of this strap guarantees proper application, ensuring the boot provides maximum protection.

    VenTECH™ Elite Sports Medicine Boot - Front is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made well, fit well, work well. Great boots! I have two pairs of these boots that I have been using for turnout for my mare, who has tendon issues. They fit really well and contour really well even on her leg with a dropped fetlock, they stay in place nicely, they breathe well and don't make her legs hot unless it is really warm outside and the boots get wet from rain or dew, and have held up really, really well to all-day-every-day use for months (she gets them off at night).They fit true to size. She is 15.3 hh with average bone, and wears either a medium or large in these comfortably (the medium is on the slightly skimpy side, the large is generous). I alternate between both to help keep her from getting rubs since they fit slightly differently.Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this product and it's amazing. I ride reiners and this works awesome because it doesn't take any movement away from the leg but also protects it at the same time. I would recommend this product to anyone who rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made. My last pair lasted me over 5 years and they are still in good condition. They will be my back up, if needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best support yet, for the price! My mare is just healing from some tendon tears from brining her heals down to the correct placement. Since she has been tipped onto her toes for 8 years, it took a long time since tendons don't really stretch. She keeps getting supperficial tears that cause her to go lame. with these boots we are able to start working her again without her getting sore or going lame. Hoping this will continue as we increase her work load.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the peace of mind! I love how secure these boots stay while riding, and the support they offer. It really is like no other boot on the market. A must have for every barn! I have had a pair over four years, and they hold up great!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately Used them on two rides and they are already falling apart. Will be returning them
    Date published: 2015-10-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice leg protection I purchased these to support my horse's legs when our natural grass field where we ride became quite hard this summer in the absence of regular rain. I noticed a difference in his movement the very first time I used these boots on him, so I'm quite happy with them! He feels much freer and happier. I like these because they are less fussy than polo wraps, and one hopes somewhat more supportive due to the more substantial material. They seem to breathe better than the SMB II boots, which I use on my other horse. These boots tend to collect grass and burs when we walk through taller grass, but I've never seen anything worked inside the boot, and it's easy to brush them off after a ride.My one complaint is that the sizing is a bit funny compared to the SMB II boots; my horse is a pretty standard-sized Warmblood, just a touch under 17h, so I ordered the large and they fit well, but on the snug side of well; however, the next size up would definitely be too large. The SMB II boots on my other horse, a small quarter horse, seem more generously sized, as the mediums in those almost fit on my Warmblood. Just something to think about when ordering a size - depends on your horse's legs. I would certainly try them out if you think they will benefit you and your horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and True I am starting my own barn with three horses. Each horse will have their own set. I have used these over the years and the protection for riding and turnout has never been a problem.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing seems way off My review is solely based on sizing as I have not used them yet, but I measured my horse's cannon bones in circumference and in length according to the sizing chart. I measured 10-10.5, so I ordered the medium which seemed counterintuitive since she is a small draft. Got them in and they don't even go all the way around her cannon bone.. I am not sure if I measured the wrong place or what but I didn't see where the sizing chart said anything other than measure cannon length and circumference. Now I have to exchange for an XL to see if that will work. Sigh. But that being said.. they seem like a good product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Love that these are breathable so when we go to a show my horses legs don't get sweaty before I go into show. The sleek design is awesome and love that they go on and off quickly and easily!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lower Leg Protection These are great boots. They are easy to apply and remove. I like that they are breathable and comfortable for my horse and offer substantial support and protection for the leg. I'm hoping that they hold up as well as the Sport Medicine Boots that I am replacing.
    Date published: 2014-10-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect support and look great! These boots fit my young horse perfectly. It's important to me that he have the best support. I love that they're breathable. They also look great, much less bulky than the SMB II's. Slightly pricey, but if they hold up for a long time, they're very worth it.
    Date published: 2014-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use We use several sets a year. The boots provide good protection and don't interfere with the horse's performance.
    Date published: 2014-04-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! These are the best sport boots I've ever seen! They fit to the leg really well. My horse only sweats under these if it's really hot, and no dirt gets in them. I really trust that these are supporting my horses legs. I will never use a different pair of boots again! I just wish they came in more colors!
    Date published: 2014-03-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice boots I had the SMB II for several years. These are lighter, easier to put on and seal out dirt much better. It hasn't been hot enough to see if they are cooler, but so far I like them much better than the SMB's I have.

    Date published: 2013-05-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really improved Professionals Choice has really made significant changes to these boots from their earliest models. They have a lot more ventilation and they are taller. The Velcro straps are shorter -- they still hold well, but don't get so tangled when applying. A well-made product.I got these to for an ex-racehorse that is recovering from significant suspensory damage, and they are serving him well. Currently being used just during turnout, but he will be wearing these whenever he's out of his stall.
    Date published: 2013-04-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supportive Boots These boots seem to be very supportive. They are easy to put on. It has not been very hot yet, but the boots do seem to be breathable. I feel that these boots are a good choice during rehab or for protection while riding or during turnout.
