Lift a hoof and make a difference to your horse today!
The SURE FOOT® Equine Stability Program is your horse’s path to improved performance, comfort and confidence. Developed by internationally known riding instructor Wendy Murdoch, the official SURE FOOT pads are specifically designed for use with horses by horse owners, riders, trainers and equine body workers.
When a SURE FOOT pad is placed under your horse’s hoof, he will begin to experiment with the way he stands. You’ll often note that your horse will sway back and forth, shift his weight, drop his head, and go into “grazing mode.” When your horse leaves the pad(s), he will continue his experiment. This exploration and discovery of a better, easier, more efficient movement patterns enables him to break long-standing habits you have struggled with for years. With SURE FOOT your horse will discover a more comfortable, efficient way of moving in minutes!
The SURE FOOT Program and Pads give you the tools to make a profound different to your horse. By following the instructions contained in the DVD you provide your horse with the opportunity to become self-aware of his posture, stance and movement. Watch as he explores his weight on each hoof, calms himself and moves with great ease and efficiency with or without the weight of a rider. Your horse will thank you for offering him SURE FOOT!

This is the pad to choose if you can only start with one density. It is the most versatile SURE FOOT pad. Generally this is the starter pad unless you have the Impression pad and want to see any change in how your horse is loading before and after your SURE FOOT session. SURE FOOT® Equine Firm Pads are a great Entry Level pad provided your horse is generally CALM. Firm Pads have some rebound (bounce back when the weight comes off the pad) therefore they are not advised for horses that are uncertain about different surfaces or who pull back or brace against the ground. If your horse show any of these signs, is anxious, nervous or has health related issues, start with SURE FOOT Equine Hard Pads. Every pair of SURE FOOT Pads come with a DVD packed inside along with a Warranty Card.
SURE FOOT Equine Firm Pads have two working surfaces: The Green colored top is Firm-Diffuse while the charcoal side is Firm-Direct. Two unique surfaces gives you twice the number of options for use with your horse and the SURE FOOT® Equine Stability Program. Combined with other SURE FOOT Equine Pads you can create a wide variety of combinations to keep your horse’s interest, balance and mentally challenge his self-awareness of each limb. Experiment with different combinations and patterns to see how your horse responds. As you use your SURE FOOT Equine Pads you will discover what your horse likes best!
When you are ready to have more choices to use with your horse and/or he is ready for a SURE FOOT Equine Pad under more than two hooves consider the SURE FOOT Equine Firm Slants. Made of the same material as the Firm Pads the Slants change the joint angles slightly for more proprioceptive input.
They are made of as much environmentally friendly material as possible, designed and tested by Wendy Murdoch, carry the official SURE FOOT Logo and are assembled in the State of Maine, USA.
Firm is the introductory pad in the SURE FOOT lineup.
Firm gives immediately under the horse’s weight with some rebound effect.
Each Firm pad has two workable surfaces—a diffuse and a direct response surface.
Can be used with horses of any size, weight or breed. Variation in the pads density provides different degrees of firmness each providing a different experience for the horse.
Durability: The Official SURE FOOT pads have been designed and tested to hold up under the demands of use with horses in any environment. While they are not impervious to damage (tears and cuts) they will continue to service the horse even is somewhat damaged by the horse’s hooves. Therefore the benefits of the SURE FOOT program can be offered to the average horse owner for (in many cases) the cost of one shoeing. Offering the horse and horse owner a long-term use to aid in improvement of overall health.
Warranted against delamination of the DuraFlex coating and/or pad layers.
Stackable: SURE FOOT pads can be combined to stack layers generally two high but in instance three pads high. Stacking allows the person to give the horse an experience that matches the habit patterns in the body. Horses will not stand on stacked pads unless they wish to, you cannot force this on the horse as they will slip the pads to be lower if so desired. However, stacking allows the horse to experience limb differential and in many cases is beneficial to establishing a more normal, balanced posture and movement.
Pads can be use to benefit the horse pre-exercise, post-exercise, during a training session to improve and enhance performance, recovery from injury while stall bound or in limited movement, reset proprioceptors to reestablish normal patterns of movement, calming for any breed horse in any discipline, improve overall well being of horse and owner, improve relationship between horse and owner as the owner is recognized by the horse as the one who brought the comfort.
