SURE FOOT Equine Pads – HARD



Set of two Hard pads + SURE FOOT Program Instructional DVD (if requested).

HARD Pad – Gives Directly to Heat and Pressure

The HARD Pad is the choice for horses just starting the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Program – particularly if the horse is unstable, weak, arthritic, anxious, nervous, on stall rest, rehabilitating or returning to work after a long break. This Pad has no lateral give, yielding slowly to the horse’s weight, providing maximum stability, while still offering all the benefits of SURE FOOT. 

Genuine SURE FOOT Equine HARD Pads are made from one material. Color-coded on one side with Orange DuraFlex and stamped with the official SURE FOOT logo. The pads come packaged in pairs, along with a Warranty Card registration form and QR code for immediate access to the SURE FOOT Equine website. This pad has almost no lateral give making it the most stable SURE FOOT Equine Pad.

The HARD Pad was formerly called the “Impression” pad because it can show how the horse is weighting the hoof, providing key indicators for positive change. The HARD Pad gives under pressure so that the hoof finds its own level, which can be observed once the horse steps off.

The HARD Pad also makes an excellent tool for farriers and veterinarians in observing how the horse habitually stands, in determining corrective trimming and/or shoeing, and for improving treatment or post-injury rehabilitation. This image can be photographed to serve as a record of the hoof shape, structure, and weight distribution over time. By journaling results, follow-ups on the HARD Pad can show how patterns change – as a result of both: improvements in each horse’s own awareness via use over time; and corrective treatments and will not retain an imprint between uses.

Pads are suitable for use on any surface with horses that are shod, barefoot, and/or wearing boots.

Pads will show wear over time. Nicks, tears, and cuts are considered normal wear and tear and do not limit the effects 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. Check with your veterinarian before using SURE FOOT for any health-related conditions. Keep your hands away from the horse’s hoof. Use your foot to position the pads. See instructions for use on the SURE FOOT DVD, SURE FOOT Equine website and Sure Foot Equine YouTube Channel.
