SURE FOOT PADS ARE REVOLUTIONARY!

SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads are a revolutionary way of improving your horse’s balance, confidence, movement, and performance.

SURE FOOT Pads allow your horse to experience his own habitual patterns of movement and provide him with an opportunity to explore and learn new ways of standing on his feet and utilizing the ground for greater ease, comfort and confidence.


Specifically designed for taking the weight of a large horse, SURE FOOT Pads give under the horses’ weight bringing his attention to where he is placing his feet and providing new information to the balancing part of his nervous system. 


With this newfound awareness your horse can explore, shift and alter his habitual patterns of standing and moving by himself, ultimately choosing a more secure and effective way to stand and move without human interference. 


In addition to reprogramming the balancing portion of the brain there is obviously an effect on the instinctive part of the brain.  While it cannot be fully explained, SURE FOOT Pads offer a calming effect, shifting the horse from the fight & flight reaction or sympathetic autonomic nervous system (ANS) response to the grazing or parasympathetic (PNS) response. 


Some horses experience an even deeper level of relaxation believed to be caused by a release of endorphins somehow triggered by standing on the pads.


SURE FOOT Pads are available in a variety of densities indicated by colours and supplied in pairs with the exception of our Physio Pads which are a single doubled sided pad.


WARNING: Before using SURE FOOT Equine Pads with your horse familiarize yourself with the SURE FOOT Program by watching the SURE FOOT® Quick Start Guide and reading the guidelines supplied with your pads.   Always consult your veterinary before use.

The science behind SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads

SURE FOOT Equine Pads are suitable for shod or barefoot horses.

How do SURE FOOT Pads work?

We are not sure of all the ways in which SURE FOOT Pads affect the nervous system in the horse. Clearly there are a wide variety of receptors being affected and brain chemicals released as evidenced by the visible signs; eyes softening, licking and chewing, deep breathing, relaxation, neck lowering, etc.

SURE FOOT Equine Pads can assist horses with long toe, high heel syndrome.

I am curious what instigates the chemical processes and endorphin release that takes place and how does being on the SURE FOOT Pads trigger it?

 We are not sure at this time exactly how standing on SURE FOOT pads triggers the endorphin release.

SURE FOOT Pads are suitable for Shod horses.

Is anyone doing research on SURE FOOT Pads ?

We currently have several research studies being conducted on how SURE FOOT Pads are affecting the horse and his nervous system . We look forward to sharing the outcomes with you as soon as they are available

SURE FOOT Pads Testimonials

JOCK - 23 year old Clydesdale gelding 1.1 tons with Feet 223 mm wide.


For many years Jock has had difficulty in lifting his hind legs for trimming.  A balancing act between lifting feet, trying to get the trim done with only 10-15 seconds before Jock needed to plant his foot down or lose his balance.

With the introduction of SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads , and then waiting until he was comfortable standing on the pads we were then able to place his feet on the hoof stand for a longer period of time.  He will sometimes now stay for the duration of working on his feet. 

A much happier horse and much happier trimmer - thanks SURE FOOT Pads.

Hey Jo - i got the SURE FOOT pads the other day and just used them to trim my old boy's back feet.  WOW what a difference!!!  Last time i did him i thought i might need to get some bute for him next time - he is 26yrs and arthritic - and i am pretty slow trimming!! Today he was great - stood perfectly still with fronts on the pads and the only breaks we needed were for ME to have a rest!! Stoked!  Will take a pic when i do his fronts tomorrow and post for you. 

Thanks Heaps! 

Karen


 As a therapist the SURE FOOT Pads have changed how I work and improved the outcomes for horses considerably. I recommend all my clients buy at least one pair for their horse, the investment is well worth it. Jo is a great person to help you decide what to purchase as she is a very competent horsewoman herself who is dedicated to improving the world for our horses.

Nothing else in the horse world helps a horse reprogram his movement so quickly.  And because SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads seem to work at a deep nervous system level, the horses maintain the progress.
