I want to thank your company for sending out a sample set of shoes to my shoer. I brought up your product to her, and she told me she had just been sent a sample set.
It happened to be my horse’s size, so I told her to go for it.
My shoer said there was a slight learning curve on shaping them. I’m excited to see how they perform. This was a foot that we
did months in a backwards bar with quarter clips. The foot had gotten a bit narrow from the constriction. This looks pretty good.
This is a Dutch Warmblood/Arabian cross mare that has been in the Easyshoe NG for two shoeings. She has a fractured wing bone (the break is right where the bone and cartiledge meet and is basically a very long recovery). I was curious if a little more rigid shoe would help, yet your shoe also allows that horizontal flexibility.
She was showing conformation and sport horse under saddle until she broke that foot.
The break is in a place where special shoeing won’t help, my vet said. So she has 14 months off and right now is 100 days in foal. Well, I would like to tell you, she got them today and is about 75% sounder! Thank you again. Looking forward to seeing how they wear and work out long term. I am trying to keep her in shape. I can’t ride her like normal because she wasn’t that sound. Mostly trail ride. If she stays as sound as she is now, I could possibly add some light arena work.
I may add the pads in the future depending how well this shoeing period progresses. Since she is only 100 days along, we still have another 4 months until she starts putting on foal weight. However the pads may help reduce concusion.
