SOFT – The most unstable/ offers the greatest comfort
The SOFT Pad yields to the weight of the horse and gives laterally allowing the horse to sink in rapidly. It is like presenting your horse with a pair of bedroom slippers. Comfort is acknowledged immediately.
The SOFT Pad has the most lateral give therefore it is not a good choice for nervous, panicky, or anxious horses, who need something more secure and ground-like to start such as the HARD or PHYSIOPAD.
Start with FIRM or HARD before progressing to the SOFT Pad. If your horse appears to be in discomfort, has sore hooves, and/or is walking in apparent pain (from causes other than soft tissue injuries) you may quickly progress to SOFT. However,
SOFT is not a good choice for soft tissue injuries due to the amount of instability this pad provides. If your horse has a soft tissue injury please consult your veterinarian before using SURE FOOT Pads with the injured limb.
Note: SURE FOOT Equine Balance Pads are a tool to benefit your horse. They are tough but just like your other equipment, they will show wear. Nicks, tears, and cuts are considered normal and do not alter the effect of the Pads in any way.
Warning: Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Program® before using SURE FOOT pads with your horse. Failure to follow instructions could result in death or serious injury. See instructions for use on the SURE FOOT DVD, SURE FOOT Equine website surefootequine.com and SURE FOOT Equine YouTube Channel.
