Flexx Therapy with grABS
SoundHorse, of Pennsylvania, USA, have launched a revolutionary polyurethane shoe, designed for direct-glue applications.
Made from a high-temperature, thermoset polyurethane, the Flexx® has undergone long and successful trials in Kentucky and comes in three versions. The Therapy version of the shoe has a three-degree wedge to aid young horses with clubby, upright hooves and is very light, the size 4 weighing just 100g.
As well as easing concussion, the polyurethane allows the shoe to ‘bio-mimic™’ the natural movement of the hoof and permits at least some expansion of the heels, thus reducing hoof capsule restriction – a common criticism of direct-glue applications.
SoundHorse recommend the use of acrylic adhesives such as Equilox or Hoof Life for use with Flexx® shoes as they are particularly ‘friendly’ to this type of glue. The Therapy shoes are available in sizes 4-7.
