This broad sectioned elevated heel full support heartbar is ideally suited for a number of pathologies that require a reduction in tendon strain, opening of the dorsal aspects of the coffin joint and might benefit from the additional support offered by a full length frog support bar.
The addition of leverage reduction via the beveled roll on the ground surface is ideal for horses with injuries of both flexor tendons or injuries of the deep digital flexor tendon and suspensory apparatus. This shoe provides good dorsal and collateral rolling combined with a reduction of heel support. The dorsal rolling reduces the stress on the DDFT during the propulsion of the stance phase. The reduction of heel support avoids hyper-extension of the fetlock during the mid-stance phase. The collateral rolling reduces the asymmetrical stress on the flexor tendons and suspensory apparatus.
The high grade aluminum offers reasonable wear properties whilst reduced weight
