The Westropp Over Reach Boot Mark II brings a new design, new colours and it is so much quieter!! Look in your nearest stockist to find it... or order it online!!
An old favourite with a total makeover!
The original Westropp Over-Reach Boot won the New Product Award at Spoga 1986. It has been worn by many event riders throughout the world for two decades. More recently it has become a firm favourite with drivers and show-jumpers as well as the eventing crowd. Children enjoy being able to have multi-coloured 'noisy' boots on their horses.
It is the only truly safe over-reach boot to wear cross-country because it will not invert and cause a fall going into or through water or boggy conditions. Westropp Mark II launched at BETA 2007 to maintain the best features.
The new boot gives:
A wider strap for ease of fit and to lessen to uplift of the petal decreasing the noise created when in motion.
Quieter sound. While we know that many of the dedicated followers of these over-reach boots like the noise but others will be pleased to hear that the new ones are much quieter.
Re-patented and with full copyright, it is made of a very soft engineered plastic.
They will not rub or damage the legs due to being made of very soft engineered plastic.
The boot itself is made in the UK so product quality is assured.
As the boot goes into water, deep ground or comes into contact with the ground the petals splay outwards increasing the protection for the hoof. Should the hind foot stand on the boot as it is splayed that petal will rip off leaving the rest of the boot to protect your horse for the rest of the way round. Both petals and straps can be easily replaced.
Available in Black, White, Red, Blue, Brown, Pink, Purple, Yellow & Green
Sizes: One sizes fits all. 18 petals and 2 straps in one box.
These boots are fully adjustable.
We suggest using:
9 or 10 petals for a big horse,
8 for small horses and cobs
7 petals for ponies.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
The boots must be allowed to spin to do their job efectively
Unfortunately [at Bramham] Highville somehow still managed to pull a shoe off at the fourth, not the result of the boots, which was a great disappointment especially after we had lead the dressage but he will be back on track soon for the Olympic Test Event in Hong Kong, and shall be wearing his smart new Westropps there!
I met you a few years ago at the BETA trade fair. That year I was unable to go to the Young Rider Europeans as Highville had an over-reach injury, and was constantly destroying boots. I was listening intently as you explained about your boots, decided to try them and have used them ever since.
I really like the new design, and they seem more durable. You could always expect to replace a petal or two on the old ones after a run, but I used the new ones for several runs without needing to.
