When Classic Equine's development staff first imagined the design for the Legacy Boot, it was an original concept. In 1994, most boots offered either support or protection. Classic Equine looked to develop a new boot that was lightweight, breathable, flexible, and "cradled" the fetlock for natural support. They knew that horses were born with the ability to run, turn and stop. So they looked to nature to provide the optimal system to support the horse's natural movement, and simply reinforced it.
