Product Overview (Click Here for pdf Brochure)
The Natural Balance® Shoe (NBS) addresses the biomechanical needs of the equine foot for support and protection in a domestic environment. This shoe offers the horse stability and protection that promotes optimal performance with minimal stress. The patented NBS design*, along with a few suggested hoof preparation guidelines, will help to properly orient the shoe to the coffin bone as well as help prevent hoof capsule distortion. When the hoof preparation and shoe placement guidelines are followed, improved foot function and health is often achieved, and hoof distortions that are often associated with common lameness issues are eliminated.
Patented Bridge System used for sizing adjustments and to provide the support and rigidity that is necessary for proper foot function. Bridge Sizes Range from #1 - #6 and each size increases/decreases shoe WIDTH by 1/8" (0.125"). The "DEFAULT POSITION" is classified as the width of the shoe WITHOUT a BRIDGE installed, therefore, the bridge size listed in the Default Position does not require the shoe to be spread or closed for the bridge to fit. SIZING EXAMPLE: If you want to increase the width of the shoe by 1/4" then you would spread the shoe and use a bridge that is 2 sizes larger than the Default Bridge.
*NOTE: These shoes require a pair of PolySteel BRIDGES to be applied correctly. Please add the size you require when ordering these shoes. Order PS Double Bridges HERE.
