Why Equine Fusion jogging shoes is the way forward, and finding the right one for your horse.

Choosing the right hoof boot for your horse can be tricky and even downright confusing at times. So in this article, we figured we would start off by giving you a rundown of why we believe your horse should wear jogging shoes instead of iron shoes. Β What it is that sets us apart from other hoof boot options, along with a tour of all our different models. This way, you will know precisely which model of jogging shoes are the perfect fit for your horse and purposes, whether you are a first-time buyer or an existing customer looking for an upgrade. Let's dive in, shall we?

First off, Why Jogging Shoes?

‍

Equine fusion aims to optimize the horse's welfare, safety, and interaction with the owner through freedom of choice. When developing and promoting the Jogging Shoes, our goal is to enhance the horse's welfare, soundness, and performance. Selecting the right hoof shoe for different applications will significantly impact the horse's welfare, soundness, and performance.

A flexible and elastic Jogging Shoe is better for the horse than a hoof shoe or boot made of rigid material.

The key features of our jogging shoes are to give the horse comfort and the rider ease of mind through a flexible shoe that works with the hoof giving it support, cushioning, and grip. The shoe conforms to the individual hoof and ground surface (sink in and allow for movement sideways/forward), giving the horse the most natural step possible and allowing the horse to feel the ground.

All jogging shoes are designed so that it is easy for the customer to find the right size. All Equine Fusion products consist of a fully flexible sole and an adaptable adjustable upper. This means that both the sole and upper will accommodate for and adjust to different hoof shapes. The engineered flexible and elastic jogging shoe allows the hoof to sink into the rubber sole and allows the hoof to have complete contact with the sole to secure natural blood flow and hoof functions.

OurΒ FLEXIBLEΒ andΒ ELASTICΒ sole.

Where and how we use our horses has changed, and so has the relationship between horses and humans. For most of us, horses have become part of the family, and keeping them healthy and happy is of most significant importance to us.


Flexibility and elasticity are the most significant difference between the Jogging Shoes and shoes/boots made of rigid materials.

‍

The Jogging Shoe provides the horse with balance and stability as the shoe adapts to the ground, hoof, and the horse's position.

‍

When the hoof impacts on the ground, the shock is dampened by the hoof sinking into the sole of the Jogging Shoe. This distributes the forces across the whole hoof, not just the outer wall.

‍

The unique 3-layer sole is designed to support and enhance the horse's natural hoof function FLEXIBLE REINFORCE- throughout the entire step.

‍

‍

Sounds good in theory, but do the shoes really work?

‍

All our products are scientifically tested together with world-leading experts and cooperation partners. Testing is done to ensure the best quality in our products and the best benefits for the horse and riders.

In cooperation with Professor Lars Roepstorff at The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Equine Fusion performed testing to document some of the key features of the Jogging shoe.

Testing showed, among other things, the ''All Terrain'' reduces acceleration at impact by 40% compared to steel shoes and 11-30% to plastic hoof boots on a firm packed gravel car road. Or equivalent, steel shoe increases acceleration at impact by 67% and plastic hoof boots 12-42% compared to All Terrain.

All Terrain reduces force at impact by 43% compared to steel shoes and 26-30% plastic hoof boots on a firm packed gravel car road. Or equivalent, steel shoe increases force at impact by 75% and plastic hoof boots 35-43% compared to All Terrain.

As you can see, Equine Fusion jogging shoes clearly came out on top.
