Generally Polyflex horseshoes need replacing over the same time period as regular shoes to maintain correct alignment and balance however several case studies with slow hoof growth have not required replacing for eight weeks. This predisposition tends to be more prevalent during the winter months. Long term application has achieved superior results compared to a glued on rigid shoe which is inclined to “lock up” the heels over longer time periods, making the horse susceptible to contracted heels. The casting nature of the adhesive with a rigid shoe restricts the shock absorbing mechanism of the hoof which over time can lead to secondary conditions such as upper suspensory, shoulder and neck soreness. Polyflex horseshoes although designed to wear down, simulating barefoot tendencies, sustain their integrity over this period.

Benefits of Polyflex

  • Reduces concussion, because of its non-restrictive nature, allowing for the natural expansion of the heels while under load forces.

  • Has a self leveling effect, due to the hybrid polyurethane characteristics, allowing the heels to drop naturally as they grow avoiding the “jammed up” effect which often leads to quarter cracks.

  • Eliminates the use of nails, encouraging stronger and healthier horn growth.

  • Proven success at 36 racetracks over dirt (fast and sloppy), all weather track (Polytrack, Cushion Track and Pro-Ride) and turf courses.

  • Field testing indicates no negative effects to the Equine hoof from long term application.

  • The adaptive nature of the Equine hoof to the Polyflex horseshoe has produced exciting results, the overall integrity of the hoof wall and sole inclusive was a much healthier and natural foot.

• Fitting Polyflex horseshoes have resulted in more comfort for some horses where foot soreness became a subsequent condition, which made diagnosis possible of an original disorder.

Navicular disorders have improved with several horses however we have not had adequate case studies to determine a pattern. Update: After further study with navicular cases a high percentage are showing improvement.

The application technique of the Polyflex horseshoe gives it another advantage over other glue on shoes as a minimum amount of adhesive is required for attachment which allows the hoof to breathe and grow more naturally. In many cases glue on shoes with cuffs or tabs tend to degrade the hoof wall over time.

The flexible qualities of the Polyflex horseshoe work well with adhesives resulting in less shear force which creates a superior bond and therefore allows for less adhesive to be used.

Polyflex horseshoes are not recommended for horses with severely under slung heels or old coffin joint fractures which require a shoe with more rigidity versus flexibility.
