Equicast™ EVA Therapeutic Shoes with leather pads are specifically designed so a horse can modify both the hoof and ground surfaces of these therapeutic shoes. Horses are able to achieve these modifications because of the unique properties of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA).
This design is based on Dr. Mike Steward's Wooden Clog.
The blending of EVA Leather properties and the mechanical advantages of The Wooden Clog concept is proving very effective in reducing pain reactive forces. This unique combination reduces leverage and shock while increasing a horse's comfort. This simple concept of angle modification by horses is a major benefit to using EVA Leather Therapeutic Shoes. Movement is so important and beneficial for every aspect of a horse's well-being.
Typically used in resection cases, or severe medial-lateral sinkers. This shoe comes complete with .150" of sole relief cut out to accommodate for a prolapsed sole.
Made in the USA.
