The SMB 3 is a hybrid between the two best selling protective boots: the original SMB II and the VenTECH SMB Elite. The exterior is constructed with Professional's Choice signature neoprene. Together with an UltraShock lining, the SMB 3 safeguards the cannon bone, tendons and soft tissue, while absorbing energy from hoof impact. The slightly longer suspensory strap stretches with each stride allowing full ankle movement, and helps to eliminate hyperextension of the fetlock. The SMB 3 is cut back at the lower front to allow for proper fit when used with any Professional's Choice bell boot. Lyrca binding stretches to create a more snug fit along the top and bottom of the boot, helping to keep dirt out. Once again, the Professional's Choice motto is achieved, the more comfortable the horse, the better the performance.

It is important to choose the correct size for your horse to get the optimum benefits from the SMB-3. In the chart below there are circumference and height measurements. The circumference measurement of the boot is more critical than the height because the boot must fit around the horse’s leg and overlap 1/2" to 1 1/2" to be effective. When sizing, the height of the horse and the coarseness of the bone should be taken into account, but these should not be the only determining factors. SMB-3s are sized in small, medium and large.
To choose the correct size, view the chart. If you are still unsure which size to get, you should measure the circumference of your horse's front and rear fetlocks at the widest point (see picture).
Then choose the boot size that is the next bigger size than your measurement. Example: If your horse’s fetlock measures 11" in the front and 12" in the rear, you should choose SMB-3 in a medium for both the front and rear.
