Third Annual World Equestrian Brands Rolex Top Dog Contest

Sally's dog Brody was our runner-up a couple years ago! Sally's dog Brody was our runner-up a couple years ago!

Keep your children on a leash and your dogs in focus!

Sniffing, wagging, splashing, napping – and hopefully not chasing Buck Davidson – the pooches will be on parade on cross-country day. Capture one with your camera and you could win a fabulous set of Equilibrium Airlite XC boots from our generous, animal-loving friends at World Equestrian Brands in the Third Annual WEB Rolex Top Dog Contest.

Here are a couple faves from last year to help you hone in on the hounds:

The winning photographer will receive front and back Equilibrium Airlite XC boots, which are about as close to bombproof, breathable bubblewrap as you’re going to get for your pony’s legs. They’ve got three high tech layers protecting your horse. There’s an inner layer of soft pillows of impact-absorbing EVA for maximum comfort. EVA mesh lines the middle and the outer strike pads are make of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). There’s additional TPU panels strategically positioned inside the boots to protect the most vulnerable areas of your horse’s legs. All the layers are perforated to allow heat to escape.

The lightweight boots absorb very little liquid. They even float on water – like a Corgi!

A vertical hook strap fits over the horizontal loop strap as an extra security feature to prevent the straps from becoming loose if you’re, say, galloping through the Head of the Lake – or the massive puddle in the middle of your arena.


Check out the boots and other goodies at the VTO booth, #146, in the trade fair. Dogs welcome, of course. Don’t forget to swing by the adoptable dogs and fun merchandise at the Lexington Humane Society tent.

Go dogs!
