New Standard in Leg Protection | The Flexion by Legacy!

Introducing the all new Flexion by Legacy!  Classic Equine is setting new standards in leg support with the ultimate in flexible protection.

The Flexion by Legacy begins with the iconic and trusted Legacy sport boot design, but new innovations to its design makes it the leader in its class! Added is a layer of FP 360™ protection that improves the comfort, fit, and support of Classic Equine’s patented cradle fetlock support system.  The Flexion’s FP 360™ cradle support features a hi-tech, thermo formed outer layer of connected cells that individually move to support and protect the lower limb.

As the horse moves, the Flexion automatically adjusts its support in real time to remain connected and supportive even in the most competitive runs and athletic maneuvers. During competitive runs, the lower limbs rotate and flex adjusting to varied speeds and changing ground conditions causing the fetlock to encounter torque and thrust. But even as the fetlock moves, the Flexion provides 360 degree , four-way stretch to ensure the highest level of connectivity, flexible protection, and support.

FP 360™ protection absorbs energy and shock without adding unnecessary weight to the Flexion boot.

Not only does the Flexion’s fetlock support cradle provide lower limb support, its technology helps guard the fetlock from impact concussion injury as well.  FP 360™ dampens the vibration from ground impact helping to absorb energy and shock, but without adding unnecessary weight and bulk. FP 360™ is ultra-light, incredibly soft, and remarkably wear resistant.

The Flexion by Legacy is crafted with a perforated neoprene inner layer that lets heat escape and allows the horse’s leg to breathe. A soft jersey inner layer cleans easily and dries quickly. Bound edges help keep out dirt and debris. A suspensory rib ensures proper boot alignment, and the Flexion’s shock absorbing inner splint pad helps prevent scalping injuries.

The Flexion by Legacy reinforces the horse’s natural motion while supporting and protecting the critical structures of the leg using nature’s design. For over 25 years, Classic Equine has been dedicated to product innovations that help keep equine athletes protected so they can stay in the game. Take the next step in equine leg protection and protect your equine athlete’s legs with the Flexion by Legacy.

What a Muddy Mess! How to Clean your Classic Equine Gear

The Hanging Wash Rack by Classic Equine is a great tool to clean your boots.

“What a Muddy Mess.” – rodeo contestants everywhere.

Over the summer of 2019, many rodeo contestants were confronted with deep, boggy, wet, MUDDY conditions. If you left your house at all this summer, there is a good chance you have ran into some rain along the way. It seems every few years we are blessed with a muddy year of rodeos and equine events, so we decided to write down a few of our tips when competing in less than ideal situations.

First things first, Safety.

One of the best pieces of advice we can give is to learn how to read ground conditions. This tip applies regardless of whether the ground is wet, dry, deep or hard; know what is not safe and know what is best for your horse. If you are not sure how to read the ground or unsure about your decision, do not be afraid to ask a seasoned professional for their opinion. Also note, every person has their own idea of safety so it is ideal to know how your horse stands up in different conditions and to make your decision based on your horse’s abilities.

If you’ve ever competed in muddy conditions, you understand hassle of cleaning your tack in the aftermath of the event. We have some recommendations for you to keep in mind and make this process easier!

When it comes to cinches, try using our Featherflex cinch. The Featherflex has a soft feel for your horse and is very easy to clean after use. Along with that, the Featherflex is antimicrobial and antifungal, reducing chance of girth itch or agitation in damp weather.

Many people struggle with leg protection for their horses in the mud. In most situations, we recommend the Legacy2 or ClassicFit protective boots for optimal protection at jackpots and rodeos. However, another great option in less than desirable conditions is the Airwave ProTech line. It features breathable, lightweight boots with the ProTech outer shell for impact protection with an added bonus of AirWave Technology (this makes the boot perforated with a exterior mesh). By using the ProTech system in the mud, you provide your horse with excellent protection without any additional weight. As a bonus, the ProTech line is extremely easy to clean with a small spray of water. Some mud experts also prefer to use leather splint and skid boots as a great option as well.

Last but not least, be sure to pick up your favorite rain sheet with a neck piece for this rainy rodeo season! Sometimes pens or stalls undercover aren’t an option on the rodeo road so rain sheets keep your favorite pony warm and dry as the rain falls. We recommend the Classic Windbreaker Turn-Out with hood to keep your horse dry. This blanket also fits excellent over your saddle and the neck piece ensures no rain seeps onto your saddle.

Cleaning Your Boots

Not only can running in the mud be a hassle, but then you have the aftermath of cleaning them up! Keeping your boots clean and debris-free not only are more comfortable for your horse, but extend the life of your boots! We recommend cleaning our boots by spraying them with water, removing all dirt and debris from the hook and loop straps, and letting them air drying. We DO NOT recommend washing them with detergents. The chemicals can accelerate the breakdown of the boot material and could also have a reaction to your horse with skin to skin contact. If you really want to improve your boot-cleaning situation, check out our Hanging Wash Rack – a small investment to make your life so much easier!

Canada’s Best, Carman Pozzobon

A name that may be new to the lower 48 and the NFR roster is a standing Canadian staple. Carman Pozzobon not only has qualified for her first-ever NFR, but she also captured the coveted number one back number in Canada to be worn at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Red Deer, Alberta. After a Canadian championship in 2017, Pozzobon qualified for the winter rodeos (such as Fort Worth, Denver, and San Antonio) and decided to make a run at the NFR. Competing at 58 rodeos, Pozzobon was able to earn $86,946.59 and secure 15th in the world standings.

Ripn’ Lady

All of Pozzobon’s 2018 season earnings were made on one single mare, Ripn’ Lady, better known as “Ripp”. Ripp is a 2010 mare by Canadian stud, Frenchs Hula Guy, and out of Bijou Betali (Eli Betastreak x Zacks Beta). Over the past three years, Ripp has won at the futurity and derby levels, qualified for the semi-finals of the RFD-TV’s The American, won a Canadian Finals Rodeo championship, won many other pro rodeos, and has now qualified for the National Finals Rodeo. Every check made by Pozzobon this year was on board Ripn’ Lady and Ripp will be Pozzobon’s main mount at the CFR and NFR. Ripp was also voted 2018 Canadian Professional Rodeo Association’s “Barrel Horse with the Most Heart”.

Along with Ripp, Pozzobon will also be hauling TammysLittleParadise “Lulu” and Rimes Girl “Rimey” to both finals. Both Lulu and Rimey were trained by Pozzobon and are by the same stud as Ripp, Frenchs Hula Guy.

Q & A with Carman:

Do you travel with any pets other than your horse?

Yes, I have three mini heelers: Taz, Camo and Three.

What were your most memorable rodeos this year?

The most memorable would be the winter rodeos in TX, Calgary, the American, Strathmore, and Cloverdale. There’s a lot of great ones so it’s hard to pick.

What was your game plan qualifying for your first NFR? How did you decide where to enter?

Well it’s been a plan since I was young so I’ve had to work my way up through different horses and selling some to keep going down the road. Once I decided to finally keep Ripp we set the goals to win Canada to get qualified for the winter rodeos. Then hit those and came home sitting good so she was able to have a bit of a break before we started again in Canada. I took advantage of where she excels to stay in the standing and kept her feeling great for the bigger weekends so it all paid off in the end.

How does it feel to have earned the #1 back number for the 2018 CFR?

It feels great. I know my Dad really wanted it, so when I stepped away from Canada for those last two weeks, I was a little worried it would slip away but we hung on and achieved that as well. I’m super happy we got it.

What are your thoughts heading into your first ever NFR?

Don’t even know where to start. Lots of excitement and very excited to have all the prep done and just be running down the alley to see how Ripp loves it. I think it’s the perfect set up for her. I definitely just want to live in the moment with it all to take in that all our hard work has paid off to get to reach our goal.
