Great news- the SURE FOOT Farrier Pad is now available! It has two working surfaces: a firmer more supportive side and a softer side.
The Farrier pad is unique because it provides virtually no rebound and is similar to bare ground when initially stepped on. However, as the horse stands on the pad, it gradually gives way to his weight. This visual will give clues into the horse’s habitual posture. Seeing the loading can be used in determining proper trim and shoeing, and assist in developing a rehabilitation program to improve weight distribution and balance while retraining the habitual posture patterns.
“I am a firm believer in the SURE FOOT® Equine Stability Program. The Farrier pad has helped several of my client’s horses and as a farrier I believe this in my business as well. I have used this on horses with side bone, navicular, founder and several other issues. Thanks for this product!” – Jeff Stubblefield, Master Farrier for 47 year
Warning: When introducing horses to the Farrier Pad be sure they are not on cross-ties until it is clear the horse is comfortable with the pad.
