WHY MEGASUS HORSERUNNERS?
THE MEGASUS HORSERUNNERS WERE DEVELOPED SO THAT THEY COULD ALLOW FOR ALL NATURAL HOOF MOVEMENTS AND PROTECT THE HORSE'S HOOVES:
Megasus Horserunners are the result of long-standing research and 20 years of studying the horse's hooves. 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 for uneven grounds. When fixing the hoof with a 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 moves under the weight of the horse.
