Stretch & Flex Training Wraps have been designed to offer additional support and protection to the vulnerable areas of the horse’s legs during exercise. These versatile boots are not only ideal for dressage and schooling but can also be used for hacking, lunging, showing, endurance, carriage driving, as well as low level jumping.
Stretch and Flex Training Wraps are available in black and white and in an array of sizes, including a ‘medium narrow‘ fit for those with finer legs, to make sure you can have the perfect fit for your horse on both front and hinds.
The hook and loop fastenings make them quick and easy to put on and take off, giving you the support of a bandage with the convenience of a boot.
Stretch and Flex Training Wraps are made from unique and breathable Stomatex which regulates the skin temperature during work. They are shaped to fit comfortably around the contours of the horse’s leg, making them ideal for horses with knocks, scars or splints, for young or big moving horses, or simply to provide extra protection around the fetlock joint.
The extra support offered by the Training Wraps extends down the leg supporting the fetlock joint and the pastern. The wrap around strap snugly supports the joint and also prevents sand or grit from getting inside the boots and causing rub injuries. These features mean that the Training Wraps are useful for horses and ponies recovering from injuries, those with joint problems such as arthritis and in providing gentle cushioning over scars and splints.

How Stomatex® Works
Stomatex® is a revolutionary, unusual looking material. The material itself mimics the way a leaf ‘breathes’ which keeps the skin free from perspiration and maintains an ideal skin temperature over an extended period of time.
The way the material works is by efficiently moving trapped vapour molecules from beneath the fabric by the flexing action of minute dome shaped chambers which contain a tiny pore in the centre.
Stomatex® replicates how a plant’s stomata transpires and passes vapour from inside the leaf to the atmosphere.
The chambers create a self-contained micro-climate, allowing cooler, drier air to pass through at a controlled rate and the material works as hard as you and your horse are working to maintain this constant condition. This technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion – that heat will always transfer from a region of high temperature to a region of low temperature and that, in an attempt to regain equilibrium, water vapour will tend to move from a region of higher density to a region of lower density.
This process means that Stomatex® can overcome the problems of perspiration and over-heating traditionally associated with the use of closed cell foam materials such as traditional neoprene.
