HARD Pad – Gives Directly to Heat and Pressure
The Hard Pad has no lateral give, yielding slowly to the horse’s weight, providing maximum stability, while offering all the benefits of SURE FOOT. This Pad is the choice for horses just starting the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Program – particularly if your horse is unstable, weak, arthritic, anxious, nervous, on stall rest, rehabilitating, or returning to work after a long break.
HARD SLANT – Changes the Angle
Made of the same material as the Hard Pad. Typically placed with the hoof heel high, Slants may change hoof and joint angles, offer lower back relief and help strengthen muscles around the stifles. They can be used under any hoof and in any direction: heel-high, heel-low, or laterally (supination or pronation).
An unsure or nervous horse benefits from using the HARD SLANT by standing just on the thin leading edge. This allows your horse an opportunity to experience the feeling of SURE FOOT without committing to the full height of the Slant or standard HARD Pad. HARD SLANTS can provide comfort to horses with arthritis, those rehabilitating from stringhalt, shoulder, or pelvic injury, or those that have stifle or hoof concerns.
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.
