Over reaching is a term used to describe when a horse over extends its hind leg and strikes its front hoof, this is made worse when the horse has shoes fitted as the injury can be more severe. This can happen during turn out when horses are twisting and turning during play or during fast work when the horse is at full stretch.
There are many types to choose from starting with a simple rubber bell boot which many horse owners just love because of its simple construction, it also comes with a velcro closure which has made fitting very easy. Other boots use tougher materials for use in eventing. Kevlar and Carbon materials make for tougher over reach boots for horses that can stand up to wear and tear, but the dressage rider still prefers a bell boot that has tough of luxury, lambskin or wool-lined prevents rubbing on the fetlock with a leather-look is a firm favourite.
A notable addition to overreach boots for horses was the introduction of a no-turn knob, this is when the boot is shaped to fit into the rear of the pastern, this stops the boot from turning so the tough shell of the boot is kept in the correct place when the hind leg strikes through.
