Outstanding choice of shoe for horses recovering from various back, leg and hoof issues. A softer, shock absorbing shoe offers relief and promotes a quicker recovery. The shoe has been used extensively for over 20 years in different rehab situations with great success.
Öllöv shoes dampen maxload, forces that horses are exposed to when it moves, even on soft surfaces like grass and fiber. This, according to a study in 2019 by professor Lars Ropestorff, done using the OBST of the Öllöv SoftStep compared to Steelshoe. Se film about this study or read more below.
Intermittent lameness can be helped by providing comfort for the horse and that is something Öllöv shoes can provide.
