The Team and the Story behind the Equine Jogging ShoeThe company was founded when a dedicated horse owner had a horse that always seemed uncomfortable and despite of veterinary checks and treatment it never seemed to get better. As a last resort the metal shoes was removed. The horses hooves had to go through a rehabilitation period because of the damage the metal shoes caused regarding weakened, deformed hoof and reduced blood flow. When removing the metal shoe the horse still needed protection from wear and because the hoof was weakened this horse was in need of a shoe that could allow the use of shoes for all type of work and play and Equine Fusion was founded in order to develop a shoe that would work with the anatomy of the hoof. Equine Fusion was founded by a dedicated multi skilled team that set out to make a shoe that can give horses protection in a natural way and protect the hooves in the most natural and comfortable manner for the horse. The Jogging Shoes is developed by engineers in cooperation with veterinarians, renowned horse trainers, hoof trimmer and experts in shoe material and construction to achieve a shoe that perform in according to the horse anatomy and biomechanical function.Horses can get sore and uncomfortable when metal shoes are first removed. Restoring function to a horse’s hooves requires that the hooves get the protection needed in order for the horse to have a comfortable hoof rehabilitation period. The wear of the hoof can exceed the limit for the hoof and cause sore hooves so protection is needed from excessive wear the jogging shoe is used in training and also in paddock to protect hooves from excessive wear and un comfort.When the horse needs protection the shoe provides comfort and support and otherwise the hoof gets strong and work in natural environment when the wear of the hoof is not excessive. The shoe conforms to the individual hoof and ground giving the horse the most natural step possible promoting the natural function of pressure on the frog and contact with the ground. This promotes the natural hoof and gives great comfort and protection.The shoes give the horse feeling with the surface and in addition to protection from hoof wear and shock absorption increases the stability and comfort for the horse. The key features for this product is to give the horse comfort and the rider ease of mind through a flexible shoe that works with the hoof giving it support, dampening and grip.Why do the horse’s hooves need protection?Problems such as lameness & navicular injuries are generally caused by shock to the horse’s legs, hoofs, and joints.

This flexibility in the shoe encourage a natural and comfortable step. The flexibility of the shoe construction allow the shoe to adapt to the individual hoof shape even in motion providing comfort and stability for the hoof.Metal shoes or hard shoes amplify shock and vibration and keep the hooves in a fixed unnatural position and can cause the horse injury, pain and discomfort. Using metal shoes is costly, gives the horse unnatural pressure and shock to the hoof adding the cost of medical expenses. A horse’s natural hoof is designed to flex and spread on impact, which pumps blood through the hoof keeping it healthy, absorb shock and helps promote good blood flow when this is restricted the heart of the horse has to work harder to pump blood through its body.Finally we are spreading the word about this unique shoe to people who care about horses in order to make it easier to keep horses healthy and riders safe.
