Extensively tested by Dawn Secotine-Hansen, a titled equestrian, ranch owner and trainer to be superior in the slop and the saddle. Low-ankle rubber overlays promote excellent range of motion to eliminate fatigue. The boots decrease stress on the thighs while riding and maneuver like athletic shoes while walking. The low-ankle design also makes it easier to "ankle down" while riding and provides closer contact to feel the horse’s movement.
