Model designed by Professor Jean-Marie Denoix.
Shoe with wide toe and wide double bevel to allow the ground bearing surface centre to be set back (reducing digital lever arm). Shoe with large onion and greatly increased surface at heels. Rear shape. Made from hi-tech aluminium alloy with high mechanical strength. Non-tempered alloy : can be used for hot or cold shoeing (up to 450°C) without loss of hardness. 2 lateral clips. Thickness 10 mm.
PRINCIPLE AND INTERACTION WITH THE GROUND :
Set the shoe’s ground bearing surface centre as far back as possible to reduce digital lever arm. Obtained by using a wide double bevel on the toe and large onions which provide support for the heels set as near as possible to the foot pressure centre (and not on the foot’s rear as with an egg bar shoe).
BIOMECHANICAL AND KINETHERAPEUTIC EFFECTS :
It is no longer possible to stimulate the deep digital flexor tendon using a wide toe in horses with dropped fetlocks because it has no tension (laxity). In order to reduce fetlock extension with the same load, the shoe’s ground bearing surface centre has to be moved backwards which can be accomplished by reducing digital lever arm. Heel support is achieved by increasing the rear ground bearing surface surface area using large onion that brings ground bearing surface to the foot’s centre, in contrast to an egg bar shoe which moves it to the back of the foot.
Designed for horses with dropped hind fetlocks. Horses with laxity of the tendons including the suspensory ligament. Degenerative pathologies of the fetlock joint suspensory ligament with dropped fetlock.
