RE: [RC] [RC] What pads for concussion/shoeing - Ranelle Rubin

Out West, Delta carries a green pad they call an "Impact Pad". I looked on their website, and all they list there are the shocktamers, but they do carry the pad I use, as I had to run over there once when my shoer was her and did not have the size we needed. It has a hole in the middle to let out sand and small rocks.

That is what I have used in the past. One thing I would avoid, are the pads with the built in wedge to elevate the heel. That kind of pad has caused me problems in the past.

Another option your friend may want to consider for this horse is to boot over his shoes for the hard surfaces. Funny thing is, when I went to the Delta site, I found they have a new boot out called, amazingly enough, "The Delta Boot"...They look interesting to say the least! They certainly have some cool features. Given that my 4 yr old will stay barefoot as long as possible to let his feet develop, I may have to try these:

I'm helping a friend out. What pads do/have you use(d) when shoeing for heavy concussive going, such as endless miles of pavement or similar footing? Particularly if you use(d) rim pads, which ones, Have "heard" about the Shocktamers, how do they hold up (rim pads)? Any of you ever have the hoof wall split from the coronary band, as a result of concussion? The shoeing is correctly balanced, the hoof horn is good, but the equine is extremely heavy in relation to size of the hoof, and the problem only shows itself on a HARD surfaced ride. Most likely they won't be doing the hard surfaced rides anymore, but would like to know more about pads, and if/how they work.
