Our pads are manufactured from clear elastomeric polyurethane.
They are ultra tough and can normally be used several times.
The clarity of the material allows you to accurately position the frog support, particularly when dealing with laminitis.
Basically they redistribute the load to the place where evolution provided the horses “natural” shock absorber.... THE FROG.
Supports the bony column via the frog and digital cushion.
Best used in conjunction with P3 support system to prevent ingression of debris and provide total support.
Provides extra grip with the “chevron” style moulded frog support.
Used in conjunction with P3 instead of mesh these pads allow you to retain the grip of the shoe section and keep the overall finished shoeing lighter whilst still providing total support.
Small 4 3/4”
Medium 5 3/4”
Large 6 3/4”
This view shows how the Chevron profiled gripping frog support transfers load from the wall to the frog.
The 3 different sizes, small, medium and large, each have different depths of section on the frog support section.
The small pad is 6mm, medium is 8mm, large is 10mm.
This is so that the frog support actually bears load on the ground.
If you use an 8mm section shoe on a large foot that requires the large pad, then you should rasp or linish the frog support down from 10mm to the same depth as the shoe, so as not to exert excessive load on that area.
