shoes with a difference – the best of both worlds

Published: Saturday, 1 September 2012 | Written by: Sylvia

For those horses where barefoot just isn’t an option we recommend Epona shoes as an alternative to conventional shoes. They provide some of the benefits of barefoot along with the protection of a shoe. This can be very useful for the early stages of transitioning or as a long term compromise for on-going issues. If your farrier doesn’t know about this product why not put him in touch with the UK distributor Hoof-Help, Sally Bell not only distributes this product but as qualified equine podiatrist she has first-hand experience of its use and application in a wide variety of equine situations.

About the author

Somewhat eccentric southern African, who when not discussing horses, photographing horses, debating issues relating to horses, can be found out in the pasture with the horses (her's or someone else's). In those brief moments when horses are not the topic of conversation you’ll find dogs being walked, escaped sheep being sought, bales rolled by hand across awkward fields or the weird and wonderful foundlings of the wild world that have arrived in her kitchen for care being rehabilitated for release.
