  • Storage – Be mindful of where you leave your pads. In very hot temperatures HARD Pads will soften considerably. Do not leave any SURE FOOT pads in an enclosed car, horse trailer or other confined spaces in hot and/or humid temperatures. Doing so may void the warranty. A rule of thumb is not to leave your pads exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged a period of time. If you wouldn’t leave your dog in that location, then don’t leave your pads there either!
  • Warranty: Warranted against delamination of the DuraFlex coating and/or pad layers. Excessive use with multiple horses on a daily basis will cause significantly more damage than the individual horse owner. However, the pads will continue to perform.

  • Prop 65 warning: The State of California requires that any product containing a chemical listed as hazardous to health must be declared. As there are chemicals within the DuraFlex coating that must be declared SURE FOOT pads carry this warning. Please do not eat your SURE FOOT pads!

Full Physiopad – Two Hooves at once

Genuine SURE FOOT Equine FULL PHYSIOPAD consists of 1” Hard material color-coded with Orange DuraFlex, stamped with the official SURE FOOT logo), and ½” gray Medium material. The FULL PHYSIOPAD is packaged individually along with a Warranty Card registration form and QR code.

This pad and the smaller HALF PHYSIOPAD are the only SURE FOOT pads which are made from composite pad materials; Hard and Medium. Either side of the pad may be used. These are designed to provide comfort and stability, not to challenge the horse’s balance. 

The PHYSIOPADS (originally called the Farrier Pad) were designed for farriers and trimmers, to help horses stand in comfort without having to balance on a 2” thick pad or be challenged by different SURE FOOT Equine Pads. A calm, quiet horse is easier to work on and requires less time. More importantly when the horse is comfortable everyone is safer: horse, handler and hoof-care provider.

Horses can have one hoof or two on the FULL PHYSIOPAD (both front or hind hooves). For two hooves, horses can be stepped onto the pad and less likely to move if bumped. I can also be used to overcome mounting problems by placing it at the mounting block and asking the horse to stand on it.

The PHYSIOPAD is great for Equine Professionals to use as a treatment pad for the horse, especially while standing to hold horses or kneeling-down especially on hard surfaces. This pad can provide greater relief from standing for long periods of time.

  • Pads are suitable for use on any surface with horses that are shod, bare foot and/or wearing boots.
  • Pads will show wear over time. Nicks, tears and cuts are considered normal wear and tear and do not limit the effects of the pads in any way.
