Eventing boots are specifically designed for the cross-country phase of eventing. They are designed around the model of the brushing boot, but usually feature better tendon protection as well. Modern eventing boots are lighter than ever, so that they don’t hinder the horse’s speed in any way. They are also waterproof, so that the boots don’t absorb water through the complexes, preventing the water from making the boot heavier. At the same time, they are also well ventilated. Eventing boots are usually fitted with protective pads that help with protection of the leg over the more solid obstacles and aid in shock absorbency. Good-quality eventing boots are often on the more costly side, as they are aimed at discipline-specific riders and not just leisure riders.
