EasyCare comfort pads increase solar support so that all horses, sound or unsound, are encouraged to move correctly. They can also be used to improve the fit of a hoof boot. Use them in hoof boots to help transition a horse from shod to barefoot, or as an aid in the treatment of laminitis, navicular and other hoof ailments. We recommend you work with your veterinarian or hoof care professional when treating any type of hoof pathology. Comfort Pads are available in two thicknesses (6mm and 12mm) and three densities (soft, medium and firm). EasyCare Comfort Pads must be cut to size. Simply stand the horse on the pad, trace around the hoof and trim the comfort pad with scissors to the outline of the hoof before placing the pad in the hoof boot.
Soft pads offer the most cushion, but the least amount of shock absorption. They are best suited for therapeutic needs.
Medium pads are a good combination of cushion and shock absorption. They can be used for therapy or riding.
Firm pads offer very little cushion, but a lot of shock absorption. They work well for riding, and are a great option for horses that need a little more protection than the boots alone provide.
Sold in pairs.
Great quality, but they don't need to be so huge. Would fit a grizzly bear,; you end up cutting away a lot. Make them smaller and bring the price down.
Combined with lightweight boots, these pads allow my thin-soled horse to enjoy his turnout even when the ground is hard. They are softer and easier to cut to the correct fit than other pads that I have tried. They mold to the contours of his feet well. They also are pretty durable- he wears them daily for about 4-6 weeks before they need replacing.
My mare is prone to laminitis and these pads combined with hoof boots keep her out of pain and able to move around freely. They don't pack down and become hard like some brands I've tried.
I was transitioning my horse to barefoot and they definitely gave him relief.
12mm is just what my mare needed! Her hooves are small so it’s great the pads are large enough that I can get two sets of pads from one package.
