Barrel Racing – Testimonial

  We applied the [Performance] shoes to address low heels and give more heel movement. They pick the feet up and give them a cup and get the sole off of the ground. It is also a more natural way of shoeing. He took right to them and has made some great runs in them. In the past, I used them on Easy Winning Lady. She won the BFA Derby in them. She had thin walls that were difficult to nail – problem solved! -Kelly Bruner   Barrel Racer  2015 ...

Fran Jurga`s Hoof Blog: News from Hoofcare + Lameness Journal: Shackleford’s Preakness is First Triple Crown Win for Synthetic Horseshoes; Dewey-Walters Shoeing Team Claims Two-Thirds of Crown, Going for Triple

Posted by on Aug 16, 2013 in In the Media, Polyflex in the News, www.hoofcare.blogspot.com | 0 comments

Click Here to read full article We saw Shackleford in the Fountain of Youth, the Florida Derby, the Kentucky Derby.
