Ever wonder what it’s like to gallop around a four-star eventing track? Doug’s narrated helmet cam gives us a guided tour of the 2012 Rolex Kentucky.
Let’s live vicariously through Doug’s drop into the famous Head of the Lake a few more times — in slow motion, of course:
Whew! Just watching that video is enough to make you weak in the knees. Eventers are tough — and their equipment is as well. Which brings us to our World Equestrian Brands Product Spotlight of the Week: Equilibrium Tri-zone Airlite Boots.
Here’s 2014 WEG squad member Sinead Halpin and her horse, Manoir de Carneville, rocking around Rolex in their Airlites:

Sinead isn’t the boots’ only fan. Here’s what top eventer Buck Davidson has to say about his Tri-Zones:
The Tri-zone Allsports boots have become an essential part of my equipment. They are super protective, yet unbelievably light weight, and keep my horse’s legs from overheating. They are great in water, as it drains out quickly and doesn’t add any weight. I highly recommend them.
What makes them so special? From the website: “The Tri-zone® brand is built on a core principle of zoned protection — providing unrivaled protection where it’s needed most. When concussion occurs, shock is transferred through 3 zones never letting impact reach the leg’s tendons and ligaments. Tri-zone® technology absorbs up to 50% more concussion and is 50% more resistant to penetration in independent clinical trials when compared to leading market brands.”
