How will the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Program help your horse?

In short by creating relaxation, improving performance with greater freedom of movement and improved wellbeing.

How does it work: The SURE FOOT Equine Pads tap into the nervous system of the horse, via the hoof, creating new neural pathways. Within minutes positive changes may be seen in movement and behaviour.

For who: The SURE FOOT Pads can be used daily by the horse owner or used by the equine therapist, farriers and vets as an essential tool in equine rehabilitation and conditioning programs.

Why use them: Improving performance with greater freedom of movement, creating relaxation and improved wellbeing. Horses that are scared, scary, panicky, pushy or that trip or stumble will find physical, mental and emotional comfort and support from standing on SURE FOOT Equine Pads.

General information: Imagine your horse becoming his own teacher and finding inner harmony. The SURE FOOT Program gives you the tools to offer your horse this profoundly meaningful experience of self-learning. SURE FOOT is a unique and innovative program, which uses the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads. It’s easy to learn. If you can safely pick up a hoof you can do SURE FOOT. You can give your horse the chance to change his posture, behaviour, and movement while improving his balance, confidence, and performance in just a few minutes. More importantly, SURE FOOT will show you that, when given a voice, your horse will become engaged, present, and ready to work.

Created and developed by Wendy Murdoch, SURE FOOT’s effectiveness is acknowledged by owners, veterinarians, equine professionals, trainers, trimmers, and farriers around the world. The Program uses SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads, designed by Wendy, specifically for horses. Your horse has an opportunity to experience his own habitual patterns and find ease when standing on SURE FOOT Pads. Watch as he shifts from anxious to calm, and from calm to a deep state of relaxation.  Even more amazing is these improvements last long after the horse walks off the Pad. Greater relaxation means, less stress, easier to train, greater freedom of movement, more resilience to the environment, and greater wellbeing.

SURE FOOT Pads vary in density from Hard to Soft, providing a wide range of pattern variation for your horse to experience. The SURE FOOT Pads challenge your horse’s balance, activate proprioception, work the small postural muscles, and creates awareness. The degree of difficulty depends on the Pad density and number of hooves placed on Pads. Once the horse is familiar with SURE FOOT the pattern can be varied on any given day depending on the horse’s condition, medical history, and desired effect.
