"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."

ichaela and Jay Bell CJF RJF CLS APF

As a farrier for over 22 years, my passion for helping horses and the farrier trade has only grown.  I focus my practice on therapeutic shoeing and performance horses. During my time in the industry, I have also gained an interest in farrier’s themselves.  Primarily, an interest to help keep them sound.  An interest in one of our essential tools – our apron.  Badger Built LLC, was born in 2014 after more than a decade of designing, researching, and making numerous aprons.  Over that time an ergonomic apron was created that works with your body, not against it.  It is the most comfortable apron I have ever worn so that the thought of sharing it with others and seemed fitting.  Teaming up with my wife Michaela made it possible.  After all, I thought other farriers just might want the same."

"DePlano takes its roots from the need to improve both welfare and performances of horses. I have been practicing farriery for more than 30 years, having the chance to work with horses in every field of equestrian sports; experience taught me that it is extremely important to study and develop specific tools made out of the best materials in order to improve and preserve horse’s limbs and body structure in general throughout time. During these years, our research for high-standard materials enabled us to create fine quality products always taking advantage of the centennial Italian tradition in tannery. Therefore, we selected for our hoof pads a superior-quality leather tanned with natural products capable of high-performances."

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.

After several years of continued research and development, Gene designed a system for treating lower limb equine pathologies. The resulting Equine Digit Support System and comprehensive instruction material proved to be one of the most effective tools for treating a multitude of lameness conditions and often times returning horses to a pre-disease condition. In an effort to make sure that proper instruction and support was offered for the EDSS, the Ovnicek family started Equine Digit Support System, Inc. Since that time, EDSS, Inc. has continued to offer innovative products and information to help restore and maintain soundness in the domestic equine."

"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 re-allign the bone and hoofwallre-allign 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."

"Life Data Labs is a company founded on solving problems, not theoretical problems, but real-world problems. The research we conduct is driven entirely by the practicality of producing a product or service that will benefit the equine industry. Unlike many companies who perform research to substantiate products they have produced, Life Data Labs develops products as a result of our research. To conduct privately-funded research, it is absolutely critical that the research is usable to continually support the ongoing efforts. Since 1973, Life Data Labs (as the name implies) has funded and conducted equine research that has benefited the entire industry; a testament of our success and dedication."

"Farriers are often frustrated by painful, chronic conditions? They may be searching for a safe but effective alternative to pain pills? And they might be searching to heal their body, improve sleep, and athletic performance. The use of PEMF (Pulse Electro-Magnetic Field) Technology just might be their answer. Farriers and veterinarians from around the world are learning about this technology and are not only using it on their own
bodies, but also in their farrier and vet practices."

“Soft-Ride Deep-Gel Equine Comfort boots is the latest innovation by Soft Ride co-owners
who 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.”

"Let us take the mystery out of it for you. In a simple phone call, we will walk you through each step of the process. Most Farriers choose a simple block font letter stamp with 1/8" letter height.  That makes for an easy read and keeps the size manageable with respect to the limited space you have on a shoe. We manage the lay-up for you on letter stamps. If you do have a logo, please send that along with required size.  We prefer Vector art (EPS, PDF, or SVG files) but we can also use high-resolution jpg and png files.  Once we know what you want we can give a quick price estimate and let you know the expected lead time. Our steel hand stamps are made from high carbon  "01 tool steel" and hardened to assure long life. You can stamp "cold" on annealed steel or "hot-stamp". The latter is recommended whenever possible."

"Since kicking off Wellpride in 2003, it’s been quite a ride. For over a decade, we’ve felt privileged to see Wellpride horses succeed at Devon, Rolex, Breeder's Cup, Kentucky Derby, and the eventing rounds of the Pan American games. We’ve also had the great satisfaction of helping rescue horses and older horses get that extra TLC for their hooves, digestive health, and joints. Regardless of whether you are a competitive horseperson or pleasure rider, we are excited to be a part of your horse’s path to improved well-being.  Wellpride was founded by two omega-3 experts, Dr. Bo Martinsen and Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers, with the support of a veterinarian and researcher consulting team. For over a decade, we have devoted ourselves to producing the best quality fish oil for horses, focusing on the dose and freshness level needed to achieve results. For our Wellpride formulation, we use a natural fish oil made from sardines, herring and small mackerel, purified to ensure it is rid of mercury and pesticides. With our easy-squeeze bottle, you can serve your horse the one to two ounces necessary for making a difference. And our human-grade oil is so fresh and palatable, you can even drink it yourself."
