Good protection but something small in size. Sits well, perfectly ok fit. Good quality!
The best protections I have ever had the ventilation are fantastic can ride a sweaty jumping pass in 20 degree heat legs are not even sweaty. The quality is also super I ride with them almost every day and when you clean and with water and mushrooms that look like new after each time. They are small in size here but they fit my weekend which has quite small legs :-)
Have many couples with kentucy coatings and it is the best I have ever used. Will continue with these coatings for a while!
Ordered these for my horse who is very picky about leg protection. He doesn't like wearing leggings at all. He accepted them directly. The fit was excellent, they feel sturdy and well ventilated. A plus because the straps are not elastic. They sat very well in place throughout the ride and seemed easy to keep clean. They may be slightly small in size at height, but they fit my 170 cm horse excellent in size Full.
Perfect !! I particularly appreciate Velcro (in addition to lightness, ergonomics and ventilation), which allow a precise adjustment, especially if you have a horse with big joints!
