We have developed brand new hoof protection for horses using cutting edge technology.

Meet the Megasus Horserunners – the world’s first shock absorbing hoof protection that allows all natural hoof movements and works on any type of terrain. Think of these as the first DIY running shoes for horses!

Our patent pending high performance fastener system allows you to easily clip the Megasus Horserunners on and off at maximum convenience for both, horse and owner – without using any nails! FABULOUS!

 

 

 

 

 

Megasus Horserunners are the first clippable runners for horses, a non-permanent hoof protection that is as easy to put on as it is to take off – just like your running shoes. Without any iron or nails! But that´s not all!

Megasus Horserunners are the result of long-standing research and study of horse hooves for twenty years. We found the common understanding of the functioning of the hoof to be wrong. People still think that hooves are rigid and stiff only able to move 1-4mm on a horizontal plane – this is simply not the case. As early as 1998, we proved the existence of vertical hoof movements and published our first study in the renowned science magazine GEO.
In a wedge experiment we glued wedges under one heel of horse’s hoof and found out that the hoof could compensate for wedges between 1-2 cm (0,4-0,8”) without any impact on the joint. From here we concluded that the hoof works similar to a joint, compensating uneven grounds. When fixing the hoof with rigid material such as iron, tendons and ligaments will become immobilized – a feeling comparable to wearing a cast. Megasus Horserunners are flexible and allow all 3-dimensional natural hoof movements on any type of terrain. Flexible doesn´t mean soft, as the hoof itself isn´t soft. It means that the hoof protection should only move under the weight of the horse.

Why are Megasus Horserunners non-permanent?

Imagine not cutting your toenail and letting it grow for two months. Besides it being a bit gross, how would it feel if you tried to put on your shoes? Would they still fit? A horse has to stand on that long toenail and carry all its weight. In two months a hoof grows 1-2cm (0,4-0,8”). A permanent hoof protection of 6 to 8 sometimes 12 weeks has a negative influence on tendons and ligaments, causing serious tension in the hoof.

Megasus Horserunners are non-permanent to ensure hooves are kept in the same natural shape throughout the year and allow the horse to walk barefoot to strengthen its hooves, tendons and ligaments. And when it´s time for performance: clip on Megasus Horserunners! We love horses and we care about their health. And we love movement- when horses are poetry in motion. We think that sports and movement keep us and our horses healthy.
That´s the reason why we´ve invented a hoof protection for all types of terrain in every gait. To speed on! Megasus Horserunners – keep on moving!

 

 

 

Lift up your horse’s leg, take a ruler and measure the widest point of the hoof. E.g. if your measured value is 124mm, you will need the Megasus Horserunners in size 130.
