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 loose his balance.
With the introduction of Sure Foot 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 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. And going to give Dream a try tomorrow as well.
As a therapist the SF 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 help a horse reprogram his movement so quickly. And because SURE FOOT seems to work at a deep nervous system level, the horses maintain the progress.
