[RC] equithotics (was ground control shoes) - Steph Teeter

I've been very happy with the Equithotics shoes (Sneakers) - they are a plastic shoe but not flexible, there is a thin aluminum plate sandwiched between two layers of plastic. They're a little thicker than other plastic shoes and require more effort from the farrier (a learning curve and additional time to pre-drill holes and possibly grind the shoes if there isn't a perfect fit. But - they are very shock absorbing, and wear down naturally at the break-over point which I like very much. I can always get 2 settings, sometimes 3 so the $50/pair cost isn't too too bad.

After five seasons of keeping my horses barefoot I am not about to go back to shoes. Yet, if for some reason that ever were to happen I would certainly go back to using Ground Controls over anything else. Or something similar - I know there are other brands out there now that have more sizes and shapes that will work for a larger variety of horses.
