As an opponent of metal horseshoes that are nailed to the horse’s foot, I was interested in what Megasus Horserunners had to offer when I saw them on Kickstarter. Not only does Megasus have an impressive bit of research behind their designs, but these new kicks are more like ergonomic running shoes that give and support the hoof and leg of the horse.
According to Megasus: “Twenty years ago, Charly decided that it was time for a change. In order to help horses, he invented products for hoof protection made of plastic: The “Dynamix” and the “Easywalker.” These products, combined with a lot of research, have changed the market and has helped lead to today’s barefoot movement. Back then, the main goal was to develop a product for hoof protection, helping farriers with their daily work and enabling them to keep using familiar tools. Today, our focus clearly lies on something even more important: The horses and their hooves. What do they need, what is good for them?” Visit Megasus for more information.
