Equi-Build Firm Pad Material Is A Great Product!!
Posted By: Slider (Linden, CA) Aug 2, 2012
My thin soled and low heeled reining mare was put in this set up last fall with my new shoer and her hoof wall, frog and heel have improved dramatically. She doesn't have any pathology in the foot, just grows a lot of toe and low heels. But with this way of shoeing,her heels have grown tremendously and don't get crushed (like with wedge pads and packing, the frog is big and healthy and her hoof wall is very strong. She will be taken out of the shoes in the next two shoeings and hopefully will maintain her new feet with regular shoeing. I strongly urge everyone to try Equi-Build Firm Pad Material and get their horse out of the heel crushing wedge pads.
My cowhorse has some pathology in one of his front feet and the vet and shoer put him in the same set up for full support and protection. He's doing great!
