About Mr. Stockings
Mr. Stockings boots have been used at the top levels of Equestrian sport in Europe for over 20 years. The boots are made with German craftsman using only the finest high quality industrial strength products that create long lasting, high protection, beautiful horse boots.
The boots are handmade in Germany and each boot is personally inspected by the creators before shipment to you. A perfect engineering feat of combining automotive grade leather that is non fading and incredibly tough for the exterior, Velcro/elastic combo straps, and a unique foam interior with soft non irritating fabric lining all together produced the original Mr. Stockings equestrian sport boot.
These boots don't hold water, won't slip, and stay on through most anything! No need for sticky tape over your boots, these thick Velcro straps have been tested time and again and are proven to stay put.
Traditionally these boots have been used for Combined Driving sport. Because of their reliability to stay put, extreme comfort for the horse (even when competitions frequently have 15 kilometers to go for marathon phase!) and all around leg coverage, they are always used for the best competitors' horses.
Combined Driving horses legs are put through the similar rigors as Eventing horses. The fitness work leading up to an event and the competi itself is extreme. During marathon phase horses will need to be booted up for sometimes nearly an hour in competition! Therefore comfort, protection, and what is best for the horses leg's is paramount.
Eventers have also been fans of the boots. German team and individual Olympic gold medalist Hinrich Romeike used these boots on his legendary grey horse Marius for their cross country run around the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
For the first time these boots will be made easily available for purchase in the USA through this website.
Enjoy and gallop on!
