I have had the Premier Equine catalogue
at home for some time now and enjoy flicking through it in the evening. I have
wanted the Techno Wool Tendon Boots for a long time, and when I saw the chic
Premier Equine ones in the catalogue, I was desperate to get them for Amy. We
really love our Premier Equine Air-Cooled Eventing Boots, so I wanted to have
some Tendon Boots for other types of training.
Of course, there was also the red Merino
Wool Half-Lined European Jumping Square which matched the boots, so I decided I
definitely needed the whole set. Both the saddle pad and boots are available in
many different colours, there is something for everyone! From plain black, pink
or yellow, to red. Choosing a set was not easy.
As I already noticed in the Air-Cooled
Eventing Boots, the Techno Wool Tendon Boots
are also available in different sizes, meaning I was guaranteed a
perfect fit. Some manufacturers offer only pony or warmblood, and we are just
in between so the Premier Equine size variety offered us the ideal fit.
I'm always so excited when waiting on a
package. But Premier Equines super fast shipping from England usually takes a
maximum of one day longer than when I make orders in Germany, so the time was
The Merino Wool Half-Lined European
Jumping Square is premium quality. In addition to the good craftsmanship, I
also like the detailing. The colour choices of the twisted rope detailing
around the saddle pad are the perfect colours: Navy, White and Red. The special
thing about the saddle pad is the navy merino wool on the underside, the dark
colour means it isnít prone to collecting dirt. The saddle layer is lined with
soft merino wool and therefore comfortable for the horses back. The spine of
the saddle pad is clear, which is so important to me as it means the weight is
distributed evenly meaning less strain on Amyís back. Amy loves the soft
lining, because itís easy on her back and protects her from being
An advantage of the wool underside is
that it is less likely to cause skin reactions or allergies. In addition, the
saddle pad is very breathable and Amy has sweated much less than when we use
other saddle pads, despite the warm temperatures here in Germany. What I also
want to mention is the tight and sturdy stitching, due to the pattern and the superior
lining of the Merino Wool Half-Lined European Jumping Square, the saddle pad
stays in shape even after washing. When washing you should of course take care
of the pad, but that goes for any product as standard practice. The saddle pad
is made of a very skin-friendly cotton and feels stable and comfortable.
Overall, I can only emphasize once again how much the quality of Premier Equine
products convince me they are the best.
What I like equally as much as the style
is the practicability of these products. The velcro fastening strap for the
girth helps change the fit of the saddle pad, since the strap does not have to
be guided by a fixed loop this makes altering it much easier. In addition, the
Merino Wool Half-Lined European Jumping Square dries quickly after riding.
The saddle pad is delivered in a handy
carrying bag so you can transport and store it with ease. Also the Techno Wool
Tendon Boots and Fly Veils find space in the bag. It really is very handy if
you want to take the whole set to the stable or back home. It is closed with a
zipper and transparent at the front, so you can see the contents directly.
Visually I immediately fell in love with
the Tendon Boots on my horse. They have a good fit and can be adjusted by the
closures to the horse's leg. While the hard shell protects the horse's leg from
knocks and bumps, the wool provides good comfort and also absorbs any impact.
I find the ventilation function on the
outside particularly clever. Each boot has two ventilation slots on the
outside, so that the horse's legs are cooled. Especially in the summer, it is
more comfortable for the horses to ventilate their legs while exercising. But I
also generally like wool on the horse equipment for a style aspect. It also
seems to me that Amy likes it a lot, because the coat is pleasant on the skin
and also prevents pressure sores. I just love the fluffy leg protection a lot.
In the summer time, you must have the
right Fly Veil. In the warm temperatures all the flies come out of their hiding
places and disturb us whilst riding. Amy looks so cute with the red cap and is
protected from those annoying flies!
I'm just in love with the whole set. The
colour is so beautiful and radiant. Amy is like fire-red lightning when she
the set is simply a total eye-catcher and the colour sells it for me. For those
who prefer it plain, there are of course colours like black or white. The
craftsmanship is just second to none!
