The Black Pad
enable your horse to land on a stable, flat surface that dissipates the concussion evenly
provide a cushioned, supporting surface for the flexibility and expansion of the hoof capsule
support the heels and the frog areas of the foot
Our pads are constructed of a special polymer formula and are designed to be coupled with your choice of conventional horseshoe, making a "hybrid" solution for your horse. This product works toward reducing the concussion and the resulting damage to a horse's hoof from repeatedly hitting the ground. By removing the hard, narrow metal from the heal portion of the conventional horseshoe and replacing it with our impact-absorbing polymer pad, your equine partner will enjoy a more cushioned, broad and stable area on which the horse can comfortably and confidently land.
