One pair each of our SURE FOOT Firm Pads, Soft Pads, and Firm Slants.
The Firm pad is the “workhorse” of the SURE FOOT Program. This pad will give immediately upon being loaded with no rebound effect. While it may become marked with hoof prints over time it will hold to heavy use. It has two surfaces, diffuse and direct. Unlike the other medium and soft pad the firm will remain fairly stable withstands any weight or size horse.
The Soft pad has quite a bit of give and will demand more adjustment by the horse as he shifts his weight. They can be more challenging due to the increased amount of instability. However, tender footed or uncomfortable horses seem to enjoy Soft the most of all the pads.
The Slants are wedge shaped with a coated angled surface. Popular with horses under the back feet, slants let the horse experience differences between the flat pads and this angled surface. Slants help to correct habitual posture such as horses that land toe first. Arthritic horses often find the slants very comfortable as evidenced by their desire to remain on the slants. Use either direction (heel high or toe high) to increase the variables when bringing your horse’s attention to how he is standing.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the SURE FOOT quick start guide before starting this program with your horse. If there is any medical issues please consult your veterinarian before beginning SURE FOOT to be sure this program is right for your horse.
