"The horse is a complex, intriguing animal. Anatomy-of-the-Equine is the unraveling of this complexity, a quest to understand the horse from the ground up. As hoof care providers, we have sought to understand what diagnostic tools do not show. For instance, why does the external hoof not always reflect the soundness of the horse? A comprehensive understanding of what is deep inside the hoof is critical. Without it, we are often only making assumptions. To help farriers, veterinarians and informed horse owners, we created a bridge between "book" anatomy and the living breathing horse. By using a variety of modalities to learn the anatomy of horses including carefully dissecting, diligently photographing and then identifying all of the structures; this allows us to visualize and understand the inter- relationship between the structures."

AAPF Member:  Wes Champagne APF

"Wes Champagne’s influence is felt far beyond the tracks where his horses compete. He revolutionized the equestrian industry with a simple discovery: iodine prevents commonly used adhesives like bondo and putty from sealing onto the hoof. This led to a simple invention: a glue on horseshoe that actually works.  Long before the practice of using cadaver legs as training tools was banned, Wes was thinking about how to take farrier apprenticeship to the next level. Learning the precision of the craft was one thing, practicing it while keeping a 1200-pound horse calm, is quite another. It takes tremendous upper body strength to hold the leg at the right angle, while handling tools and nails with the ease of a magician.  A dozen designs and prototypes later, the Blacksmith Buddy was born. Faster than horses out of the gate, the Blacksmith Budd was embraced by veterinary schools and top breeders around the country. Now that Blacksmith Budd is a success, one can only imagine the next big idea that Wes has up his sleeve."

We studied a special aluminum alloy which allows a remarkable resistance of iron to '
wear, does not undergo thermal variations and
retains its valuable prerogative. The road we have traveled to get to produce the iron today we are proud to offer was very hard, but it's appreciation on market and the results repay us for all the efforts made.

"Here at EasyCare, it's all about the horse and their human partners. Our business is manufacturing and distributing proven equine products that will enhance performance, provide protection, increase comfort for the horse and rider, and enrich the overall human-horse experience. Throughout five thousand years of domestication, the horse has had a more significant impact on human history than any other animal. Our goal is to help make the future of the horse/rider relationship as fulfilling and exciting as the past.  What began in 1970 with the invention of the first Easyboot by Dr. Neel Glass to help a beloved family horse suffering from navicular disease, has since evolved into an entire line of hoof boots that provide an excellent alternative to iron shoes. This is due in part to the dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. We're a company that cares deeply about horses and we will continue to develop products that provide comfort, support and performance for our equine partners. We are more committed than ever to continue to create innovative hoof boot designs with features and options that will allow horse owners to provide a natural hoofcare solution for their horses."

"I originally developed this product to sell to other farriers. Like most farriers, I have always encountered the basic problems found in many horses – sore feet, thrush, feet that are either too soft or too hard and brittle, founder (laminitis), quarter cracks and white line disease. I started looking for a topical treatment and experimented with various ingredients; until I came up with what I now call Farriers’ Fix Hoof Oil. Farriers’ Fix has ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS and those who compete can be assured that it has tested negative under FEI guidelines. Farriers’ Fix "works like Magic” in the words of my clients. Horses that were suffering from stone bruises or were trimmed too short, in many cases, were rideable the next day – the ultimate proof of a product that works."

"The Hoof Cinch, A Cinch To Fix Founder. The only device that can actually reallign the bone and hoofwall.  reallign the bone and hoofwall.  Laminitis and founder are a great source of pain for the horse and his/her owner. The horse suffers physically while the owner suffers emotionally and financially. The Hoof Cinch is here to change all of this. The Hoof Cinch is an affordable, safe and painless way to fix founder.  The hoof cinch applies pressure to the affected area, relieving pain and forcing the hoof wall to grow back closer to the bone, allowing the laminae to reattach.  Screws secure the Hoof Cinch to the hoof wall and no shoes are required making this a pain free installation for the horse.  Laminitis can be caused by many variables, thyroid problems, too much grain, fresh green grass in the spring, and the list can go on forever. Sometimes it is very difficult to find the cause for the laminitis. It is always good to have a good farrier and vet that work well together. While the cause for the laminitis/ founder is being sought the Hoof Cinch can relieve the pain and start the corrective process.  The Hoof Cinch also causes the hoof to grow at a faster rate due to the continuous pressure applied to the hoof wall that stimulates the coronary band.  10-12 weeks is the normal application time."

"IceHorse® cold therapy inserts were developed using a state of the art technology called First Ice®. The inserts that go into IceHorse® wraps are made from a patented formula. When the packs are frozen the formula turns into soft fluffy snow. Once the liquid inside the inserts has gone through a transformation (think water turning into snow), it takes a very long time for it to melt. Because the frozen inserts remain soft, they conform easily to the horse’s legs. And there is no watery mess to clean up."

Soft-Ride Deep-Gel Equine Comfort boots is the latest innovation by Soft Ride co-owners whom have a long standing commitment to the health and welfare of horses.  Over thirty years ago, these co-founders of Soft-Ride developed a pour-and-place urethane flooring system for equine facilities.  The equine friendly surfaces have been installed for safety and comfort in many of the great farms across the country.  The idea for Soft-Ride boots was born from a need to have mobile support for horses during the stress of trailering and travel.  The Soft-Ride system has since developed into a multifaceted company that not only addresses the comfort of horses on the road and in their stalls, but has also branched into the veterinary and farriery field to help comfort laminitic horses.  Different orthopedic inserts have been created to provide comfort and support when transporting and stabling as well as in the treatment and prevention of injuries for all types of equine.”
